This is my personal favorite Chinese restaurant in the city. Excellent Food, best salt baked squid hands down. The entrees at worst are quite good and the chicken with black bean sauce is awesome. Their wonton soup is great as well. It is a small simple place, so if you are going on a Friday night or while there is a convention in town make sure to make a reservation.

Great Place, good food. But they need to work on there customer service a bit. They do get the orders right no problems with that, just takes a very long time for them to come over when it's obvious your done your meal. Overall I still Love the food!

Lee How Fook is good eats. Go once and you'll definitely want to go back for more. I've been going to Lee How Fook ever since I was a kid and I will keep going for years to come. The restaurant has come a long way since its earlier days when it was a "hole-in-the-wall" kind of place; today it is a flourishing business with loyal customers and newcomers flocking in for a taste. Some of the best dishes there (in my humble opinion) are the wonton soup, General Tso's chicken, ginger scallion fish, and the Peking duck. The wonton soup is different from many others you will find in Chinatown; the wonton wrappers aren't thick and doughy, they are light and tender as is the inner filling of pork and shrimp. The broth is flavorful and the perfect complement to the wontons. The General Tso's is a bit different as well; here it is served perfectly crispy and hot with a sweet and spicy sauce with an unexpected accompaniment of pineapple. If you want to go for a special occasion dish you can't go wrong with either the ginger scallion fish or the Peking duck. The ginger scallion fish is a whole fish cooked perfectly until the meat is moist and flavored with the ginger and scallions, and you can't beat the table-side filleting presentation. The Peking duck is another show stopper, you can order a half or a whole depending on the size of your party, but either way people will be wanting more. The meat is tender and cooked just right. It is served with steamed buns, scallions, and hoisin sauce. You can make a sandwich with the meat or dive right in and go for the drumstick. If you try any of these dishes, you will be hooked on Lee How Fook. --Zoey Toy

on the fringe of chinatown but close to the convention center, this chinese is low on atmosphere and price but high on food quality.

This is the best Chinese restaurant in the city! The salt baked trio, pan fried noodles, and black bean sea bass are favorites. I would eat here every day if I could!

Food was freshly made and a good value. The menu has many selections from the traditional to the typical. Everything is served large portion family style so be prepared to share. Seating is tight since the restaurant is small and service is a little slow but not unbearable.

Customer service was out the window. At zero instances did the wait staff come out to greet any guests while we waited in line like fools for over 45 minutes. 45 minutes was just long enough to be ignored completely and utterly. Several other potential diners also left because they weren't acknowledged. Nevermind if the food was great or not, we weren't privy to it.

excellent food you can tell its cooked fresh, service when you eat in is not very good
