“Delicious food, but very expensive”
Review of Lee Garden

Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Online reviews rated Lee Garden very highly, so we decided to have an evening meal here whilst on a short break in the area. The restaurant was very clean, and we were welcomed on arrival. However we were a bit shocked by the high prices on the menu; from memory, a basic main dish started at around £7-£8, (some a lot more), then rice or noodles were an extra £5+ or so on top. Then we spotted the set meals, with the first on the list being for 2 people, priced at £20 (at least, can’t remember exact figure). This sounded much better value, so we ordered this. The food was served quickly and was delicious, and the service very good. We had one small drink and one pudding as extra. The bill came to over £50. We queried this, and were shown the menu which clearly stated £20 per person for the set meal. So admittedly this was our fault, however we have had Chinese food so many times, and have never seen a set meal priced per person before. It spoiled the evening, as we would not have spent that much knowingly.

We visited this restaurant last Sunday lunch with my 9 year old who has a dairy allergy. When we told the owner, his response was that he did not know what was in the food as it was all "manufactured", and he could not provide us with any allergen information. He advised us not to eat there as it would be too dangerous. We left. The Food information regulations state that it is mandatory to provide allergen information to customers, and not to do so is breaking the law. The regulations are not meant to discriminate against those with medical conditions so that they are unable to eat. Do not eat here unless you are happy with "manufactured meals" with unspecified ingredients.

Ate here with friends recently and really enjoyed it. We all thought the food was well cooked and presented and enjoyed the different meals we had chosen. At the end, I was delighted to find the old favourite bananas fritters were on the menu and they were wonderful unlike some others I’ve eaten over the years. The banana inside was soft and sweet and I think the batter was the crispiest I’ve ever eaten. If you have a favourite Chinese dish and it’s on the menu, I would not hesitate to recommend you choose it and I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
