This place is very close to my flat and we go very often when we fancy Chinese food. The quality is good. They also do take away.

Hi! I went with my husband for a meal yesterday & I we really enjoyed our meal. Our soups were fab & the dumplings were yummy. My chow mein was really enjoyable & hubby had squid, which he really enjoyed too. Chinese tea was refreshing & replenished during our meal. The exterior could do with a good clean/lick of paint,...

Used to go here all the time forget ordering a takeaway menu as the food is not fantastic and the décor of this place is not great either but this is where the Chinese in Edinburgh eat often. they have a unique deep fried chilli beef and the food is out standing in general. don't expect great service though nor...

Have not been to Lee On in ages and am pleased to say it is still good. Always many Chinese in the restaurant, the tour buses stop here. Always good and authentic food just like you get in China and Hong Kong.

Nice location but restaurant looks a bit tired. Food was very average. Curry seems to have been warmed up in the microwave.

In need of a refurbishment, damp and drab! The food and the price are amazing, not changed in all the years I've been going. Worth a visit

25 Years ago this restaurant had been our local when we lived in Bruntsfield and we came here often. So after a long absence (having moved to West Edinburgh) and because we were going to the Kings Theatre I suggested we went there first. First things first it is true as others point out that the outside is definitely in... More
