I've only eaten here twice but the food was excellent both times. Service was prompt, the menu had a good selection of items and the handful of people with me enjoyed their meals.

Food was cold on delivery, aromatic crispy DUST, over fried, forgot our prawn crackers, coca cola was warm. Total disappointment. Couldn't actually get teeth through duck. I feel sick. Waste of time.

We came into this resturant as we were in a hurry. The decor is awful. The atmosphere was not helped by the woman in charge continually using a laptop at the bar area in full view of our table. Waitress was pleasant enough. The food...More

Had chinese chicken with egg fried rice take-out. By far the worst quality chicken I've ever experienced. I am not exaggerating in the slightest when I say that I tried and spat out every mouthful as it was either skin, wobbly chicken fat, or cartilage....More

To be clear; we do not have" Chinese chicken" on our menu, we only use chicken breast meat and nothing else. This does not sound like a meal from our restaurant.

Surely the good reviews were made by family members! We arrived in anticipation of a delicious Chinese meal and should have been put off by the strange layout and dishevelled decor but we persisted and took the seats offered ... by a row of unsightly...More

In Brighton, where restaurants are ten to the pound, it takes a lot to impress the locals. However, Lee Cottage has managed it. How? By combining an unpretentious classic Chinese restaurant interior with great Cantonese, Szechuan, Peking and Shanghai food cooked fresh to order. Lee Cottage works the classic red and gold interior combination with paper lanterns hanging from the ceiling, fresh linen on the tables and classic Chinese artworks on the walls while friendly staff chat with customers as they flick through the long menu with its many choices. Lee Cottage offers several dining options, from a Sunday lunch through to a £15 choose-your-own set menu.
