Love so much of the menu and the service at Dee's. Seeweed salad, cucumber salad, orange chicken, potstickers, and mongolian beef are all fantastic!! One of my favorite places to eat in the world.

Dee's Restaurant is a nice place for Chinese/Asian food in Lincoln Park. I really like Chicago's Chinatown but this gem is just as good, is clean, comfortable, easy to get to.., has great friendly service and is very good at accommodating large groups. Valet parking is available however I always seem to find street parking in the evening. Their duck... More

Dee told us that the restaurant has been on Armitage Ave. for 33 years. The food is good, the prices reasonable, the selection is more than ample, and the servers hustle. We like to stop when we our in the area. Sushi rolls are large, the Chinese portions are good sized, and the taste is pleasing. this is a casual... More

We have been patronizing this establishment for years and Dee has never let us down. (Yes, there really is a lady names Dee who owns and operates the restaurant.) They have a beautiful dining room and an extra room in the back for larger parties. We have dined with just two people as well as had parties of 20 people.... More

Good food though a little overpriced. A Lincoln Park icon thats been here for decades. Consistently good, a little heavy on the oil though. Potstickers are shrinking over the years, with the current offering barley 1 1/2 inches now...Good mongolian beef, crispy duck and deep fried fish. Takeout is available, though like most of their Chinese brethren, they are not... More

The main course of food was average. I had the sweet and sour chicken which was no better than any other Asian fare. While the deserts were very good the service needs a major upgrade!

I had been packing all day and wanted some Chinese food. I called Dee's and they said delivery would be within the hour. Perfect. Hours up and I receive a phone call - is your address this? No and I confirmed address. This occurred twice more and now it is 20 - 25 minutes later. Finally, the driver got the... More

We have been coming to Dee's since she opened the restaurant- we typically take out yet enjoy on site dining as well. A super choice for Chinese food.

I go here every year when I come home for Christmas with my family. We love the food. It is our favorite Chinese restaurant. We always get the garlic eggplant, Mongolian chicken and sizzling rice soup.
