“Nice place”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

I've been eating at Lee's Kitchen for over 30 years. It's basic Chinese food for Americans. Nothing fancy, but the food is good and the people are nice. Lunch is very inexpensive.

The honey sesame chicken is an especially good dish.

“Excellent Cantonese style food for the price”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

Lee's Kitchen has been consistently good for decades. The new owner has been the primary chef for the past 15 years and even with the change in ownership, it has been consistent. The specials are the best menu items and our family always look to them first. Our kids love the Honey Sesame
Chicken and the noodles, typical kids' fare. The prices are probably the most reasonable in the area, great when you need to pick something up after a long day's work and are too beat to cook at home.
The place does need an overhaul as far as decor and carpeting, but the food and the prices more than make up for it. Besides, I would rather pay less than pay more just for eye candy......

“Lee's Kitchen - a hidden gem.”
Reviewed 21 April 2013

Tucked in a strip shopping center is Lee's Kitchen, a family owned and run restaurant in SS MD. It is one of the cleanest, well run chinese restaurants in the area. The food is incredibly cheap and tasty. Their carry out portions are excellent and their pricing is the best in the area. It is a reliable chinese food option for those looking for a tasty meal without breaking the bank. It has the standard menu items for those use to American type Chinese fare so dont expect fancy HK named dishes. For the 95% diners, this is what they are seeking!

“Lee's Kitchen has retired more than its owner”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

Growing up down the street from Lee's Kitchen was a delicious way to experience Chinese food. For years, Mr. Lee created magic in the kitchen. Unfortunately, now that he's retired, so has the quality of the food. The place has an old, tired look. Carpets are filthy and spotted. They're probably the original from when the restaurant first opened. Not too appetizing.

We've been recommending this place to everyone; and now I understand why the reviews have been less than enthusiastic. Dishes are, oily and salty. Oh well. It was great while it lasted.

“You can do better in the area”
Reviewed 2 April 2013

Too much oil in everything. You better like green pepper, because you will see it in everything. We usually go here when we're on the run, because they don't deliver. We've been disappointed the last few times.
