If you're in Dauphin, you have to stop at this family run establishment. It is by far the best Cantonese food anywhere. The chicken balls and the chop suey are not to be missed.

had the supper buffet. 14 items, very tasty but limited selection It was quiet, but due to country music festival in town, it was to be expected. My Mum is a local, and it is her favourite Chinese food place

While the place is quite tired, it is clean, the food is good and lots of it for a real bargain. The service was very good every time I have been there,

Don't let the exterior of this restaurant fool you. On the outside, it looks shabby and it has a somewhat unfortunate location off of the main street next to a taxi garage. However, walk inside and you will find a pleasant, simple decor, courteous staff, and good food at a reasonable price. We stopped in one Sunday and found that... More

I recently ordered a verrry large to go order and ended up being an hour late in picking it up. The food was still hot and not soggy, drinks were cold, and all the condiments/napkins were included and ready to go. For such a daunting order, Lee's did a great job of accommodating all of our requests. And when they... More

Duluxe wonton Soup and Dinner for 2. The soup broth and dumplings were great. I would have liked a bit more veg but the addition... More

There was nothing special about the food at all. The service was very poor. Was served canned drinks with no glasses and when I requested glasses the kid server brought me one, for three people.

This is probably one of the nicest and cleanest Chinese Food restaurants I have ever been in. The service was great. Lunch buffet was $12.99 ea. The choices were amazing, and it was all very fresh and tasty. I even enjoyed the Green Tea Ice Cream for dessert, with Jelly Tots, that took me back a few years! Lots of... More

They do not offer a lot of Chinese selection for a single diner. The only meal for one is the special which amongst other things, includes chicken balls and deep fried shrimp. I am not a fan of those items anywhere so I opt for something else. However that is the only mixed Chinese dish without getting into dinner for... More

Yes the special is large but really it all rice and overly breaded chicken balls. Buffet better then other place in town. Heard shut down few times by health dept. the water tastes odd, get yourself a canned drink. Not open very late.
