My boyfriend introduced me to Lee How Fook, and now I am hooked! Although unassuming in appearance, with basic decor and self-seating, the food is delicious, authentic, and reasonably priced. All you could ask for in a Chinese restaurant. I highly recommend the salt baked...More

It just doesn't get any better than Lee How Fook. I have loved everything I've gotten to eat, but I can't go without ordering salt fried squid and pan fried dumplings. My kids love their noodle soups and I absolutely loved the hot pot I...More

We absolutely love this restaurant. Our faves: steamed or fried pork dumplings, salt fried squid, any of the noodle soups, seafood pan fried noodles, triple delight hot pot and any of the fried rices. Their food is so above and beyond. Cannot get enough.

Dined here with a large group. There was something for everyone even those not into Chinese food. But also very authentic. Great friendly service.

My son and I went Chinese food restaurant hopping one night and this was our first of 4 stops. They had the best I've ever had. It's not fancy but, it is honest and solidly good. Every neighborhood should have a place like this.
