Top notch service and beautifully presented food, in a relaxed yet bustling environment, in the heart of King St clubbing district, on a Saturday night.

Asian infusion menu, with delicious 19-20+ ingredient Singapore Style Slaw signature starter, tossed and explained table side, a delicious Peking duck entree, and eclectic wine list, priced for literally all budgets big and small.

Each course is served with the idea of sharing, and most of what we had or saw, were very large dishes. It's easy to rack up a huge bill, but also easy to enjoy enough food and drink and not break the bank.

Wine from $60 to over $5000 a bottle.

Trendy, busy, well run, and a brilliant anniversary dinner.

Kudos Lee Restaurant

My husband and I dined here as it came recommended to us. It was quite busy for a Sunday of the long weekend making the atmosphere extremely loud. We we were seated in the far side close to the emergency exit where people kept confusing it as a normal exit. We were promptly greeted but after that service was hit or miss. The cocktails we ordered were tasty but way overpriced and were not brought to the table in a timely manner. We also ordered a few glasses of wine. Again, overpriced for the choices that were available. As for the food, we tried the Asian slaw, cheeseburger spring rolls, king shrimp and tacos. We found some flavours repeated themselves and that no dish was a stand out or must have. The proportions were average for the prices that are charged. Dinner here was just okay and I don't think it lives up to the hype.

We went to the restaurant on a Friday evening, so the street was busy, making for a great atmosphere. We ordered the Singapore Slaw, which was delicious! The Mexican Puff Pastry, which was also a great dish & the Green Curry Chicken. They were all great dishes but the best part was we had excellent service and Lee himself came out to each of the tables to talk to us. He was very pleasant and made the whole experience more delicious somehow!

NEVER make any reservations here when it's about an hour or two hours before they close.

Reason : Bad service. If you want great service have it on a different time of the day... they might give you one.

For our experience, Awful. Server was nowhere to be found. Our drinks were getting to be at room temperature when our appetizers came out. Our server ordered all our food all at the same time. After appetizers came out, not even 2 to 3 bites away our entrees came out from the kitchen. We felt we were rushed out to leave right away.

Funny thing too, our server never came back after serving our food and we noticed the server who took over forgot our takeout.

Mr. Iron Chef would probably consider on doing some hands on training on his servers or hire a Front of the House manager that knows how to properly train servers about the proper steps of service.

I gave a 3 score because of the food.

Love this restaurant! Can't say enough good things. Was there during summerlicious 2016 and it did not disappoint. We all ordered everything from the summerlicious menu plus the famous slaw and were overall very happy with the food.
One of the appetizers, cod was our least favorite but not enough to disappointment the overall experience. Portions were good size and enough for all of us to share. Only negative would be the prize of the drinks. 18.00 for their sangria! Which is why the 4 instead of 5. Especially when that drink has a lot of ice and little drink.
Looking forward in going there again.
