King chicken at Lee

Lee's at Annai Towers Complex, Besant Nagar, is the latest entrant in the restaurant scene, where one can savour authentic Chinese fare.


YOU ARE welcomed at Lee's Chinese restaurant by the colourful cock painted on the main door, the laughing Buddha on the reception counter and the figurines in little alcoves. Lee's is a cosy little eatery recently opened at Annai Towers Complex on Annai Velankanni Road, Vannandurai, Besant Nagar.

With master chef Lee adding his touch of expertise to every dish, one can be assured of quality and taste. He has 25 years experience in the food industry and at Lee's, he's everywhere — helping diners to choose dishes from the wide variety that's on the score-card, welcoming guests with a charming smile and donning the chef's coat now and then. Chef Lee is a familiar face to those who have watched the Indicar advertisement.

So what's special about Lee's? It's the reasonable pricing and the generous servings. The executive lunch and the dinner is a clever addition — soup, starter, main dish and side dish for just Rs. 70 for Vegetarians and Rs. 90 for Non-Vegetarians. On weekends one can bite into the most delicious MO-Mos, which are steamed or lightly fried filled with mince and chicken, or vegies laced with a special chilly sauce - just Rs.75 for 10 pieces. There's also the added attraction of hosting a private party at Lee's, or ordering home delivery (ph. 24918175).

Try a large bowl of Lee's China Soup Rs.70 (Veg.) and Rs.100 (Non-Veg.) or the hot and sour soups, which are deliciously flavoured with lemon and coriander, and follow up with some chicken satays and Hongkong prawns — you'll want to come back for more. Dragon Spring Rolls (Rs.58) and Manchurian fish(Rs.60) are also recommended. Lucy Lee, proprietor of Liu's beauty salon in Kotturpuram, lends a helping hand on weekends and recommends the Sharkfin soup that her husband churns out. And if you ask the diners about their favourite dish, they will vote for King Chicken, which is crumb fried chicken starter (Rs.100 for 6 pieces), and the spicy Thai chicken.

Lee's is a restaurant for a family outing or a get-together with friends.
