Came to this place while visiting uncle in Needham. Was surprised by how authentic the food is. They have reasonably priced lunch special, many choices. We also ordered Xiao long bao, which was very good. Steamed vege dumplings were so so.

Quite a few options in the Newton-Wellesley-Brookline area. Great lunch deals. Wonderful dumplings and buns. Lots of things to try which we look forward to doing each visit. We are often the only non-Asian folks in the restaurant. We like the simplicity - clean restaurant,...More

This is one of my favorite go-to spots for lunch. Great authentic Chinese food. I'd highly recommend the Szechuan Spicy Flounder and Xiao Long Bao. Soooo good!

Some very good, very authentic Taiwanese dishes. Always populated by Chinese families. Best Wonton Soup and dumplings.

I walked in to Jean and Lee after work to pick up some take out for dinner. It was me and the owner (super nice and welcoming) at first having some conversation. Then little by little guests started tickling in. He knew everyone by name...More

Food is good, but still not authentic Chinese (especially those popular among Americans), from a Chinese native's perspective.

I do not believe that they offer dim sum. Jean and Lee is a Taiwanese restaurant and "traditional" dim sum is Cantonese. I am not sure where you are located but I would recommend New China Star in Lowell at 1733 Middlesex... More
