This is not your typical Chinese place, you'll find all your favourites on the menu but it's a cut above. Although the prices are not that much more so head in for an affordable meal - this is an excellent place for groups. Its greatest strength is the decor, contemporary and clean (lines and actually spotlessly clean). Notice though that... More

I had been searching for an alternative to the Asian restaurants I usually frequent, looking for something close, but more casual. I noticed Lee Chen when visiting the Reference Library across the street on Yonge and decided to give it a try. The weather was not great so I opted to get takeout and while everyone was great at the... More

Was disappointed by the quality and taste of the food. There are a lot better choices in Toronto for quality Asian food. The General Tso chicken tasted totally different than I have ever had in any Chinese restaurant. And not in a positive way.

We are a family of 3 and visited Lee Chen for the 1st time last evening for the 2016 new year eve dinner. What a find ! We started with Almond fish, hot & sour soup and sio mai, followed by Szechuan fish and Kung Pao chicken. Each and every dish was outstanding and tasted authentic. We would go back... More

Christmas dinner having been postponed until tomorrow, we decided to use the facilities of Lee Chen's Yonge/Bloor location. We were not disappointed. Better Chinese food may be available in Markham, but Lee Chen's offerings are very good. I particularly like their braised eggplant, but their soup dumplings are also worth mentioning. Recommended!

I have eaten here a few times. Nothing overwhelming but overall a solid reliable restaurant with good service for a fair price.

High quality dishes worth a revisit. Some of the dishes are either too bland or too salty elsewhere and this bistro had got just the right balance.

While away on business, and unfamiliar with the area, my coworker and I stumbled upon this place while wandering around. What a fantastic restaurant. Clean, great atmosphere, friendly staff and most importantly amazing food! I highly recommend this place and will be back my next trip!

this place is not going to be here very long - not because the food is not good, but the building is up for demolition. if you get a chance and want some very excellent hot and sour soup - this is the place to go.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
