Susur Lee's stylish eatery for creative Asian & French-influenced small plates meant for sharing.- Google
"The green curry, jerk chicken, and slaw were delicious and perfectly prepared."
"However, the "TOP CHEF Green Curry Chicken" was quite simply."

Some of the most amazing food i've ever eaten was at Lee. The first bite of Susur's mexican goat cheese tart had me hooked and i've returned every year for the past 5 for my birthday. One MUST have the slaw and i highly recommend the lava cake for desert.

Lee's is an absolute gem! The staff are all knowledgeable, friendly, and great at manoeuvring around the tight spots especially during a busy night. They are all polite and pleasant to be around. They contribute to a warm and inviting atmosphere! We came during TIFF and tried a special seafood menu created for the festival. It was absolutely worth it!!!! The servers truly care for you and your experience. They explain the flavours and ingredients behind Susur Lee's menu & effectively make food and drink pairings. The food delivers and is OUTSTANDING! PS. SUSUR LEE IS A FOOD GENIUS.

Pretty much every dish has MSG, so no wonder why people like it. I also had the experience of working 2 days there, but I quit because one of the chefs threw a rotten peach at me after he had asked me whats wrong you look so sad, I replied I'm just really hungry ( its was 10pm by the time, shift started at 3:30pm, the restaurant was super busy and I last ate at 1:30pm ) He then goes would you eat anything right now? I replied probably. He says, a raw onion? I say yup. I then continue walking down a corridor and he goes into the walk in fridge and comes out and say HEY, at this point I am quite far away from him and he whips a rotten peach at me. And thats where my hospitality career stops!

We just attended as part of Summerlicious this week. All four of us agreed the food was spectacular, filling, and well presented. Our waiter was wonderful as well. The only reason it did not get 5 stars for us was the decor and ambience really. The atmosphere/decor was cold, character-less and dark with plastic transparent tabletops - our dishes kept spinning around so you needed one hand to hold them in place, and the acoustics were so loud it was hard to hold a conversation without shouting. Whoever was hired to do the interior decorating, did a very underwhelming job. But yes, food was absolutely excellent.

Went to celebrate my birthday with my Husband.... He wanted to try their 'famous' coleslaw and was forced to purchase a full order even though the surrounding tables were allowed half orders. Their scallops were bland even though they are accompanied with bacon, grapefruit and a sweet potato mash, none of those were able to redeem the scallops. Their fish cakes tasted like an upscale version of McDonald's fish sandwich and their peking duck was mediocre. The goat cheese tart though was very tasty and had a good balance of crunch from the philo pastry and creaminess, it was a nice mixture. Their drinks are very good however it makes it hard to enjoy with their prices started at $18. I couldn't help but get the impression that this was simple asian fusion sold to 'white people who don't know any better'. I won't be returning and won't be recommending this to anyone. Their service and the decor are what merits the 3 stars. Their hostesses need a serious attitude adjustment - if your gonna bad mouth your new customers, make sure it is not within earshot!

Lee's caters to an "urban chic" crowd. That is my nice way of saying it is a little pretentious. That being said, I enjoy this restaurant very much. The food is always consistent and full of flavor. I usually sit at the bar and find the bar staff to be attentive and friendly. Couple of secrets you may not know about. You can do a 1/2 order of the Singapore Slaw which is Lee's flagship dish. Step it up a notch with Tuna Sashima and a side of Wasabi Oil (for the tuna). The homemade scotch bonnet sauce is also delicious - I put in on everything. My other favorite go to dish is the Char Sui Peking Duck. In the summer months the patio is a nice area to dine and absorb the King West scene.

Sharing style, great for small groups. Great service. Serve each plate individually at the perfect place. Get the slaw salad!
