ne look around Mr. Lee’s Fine Asian Dining, and you’ll know you’re not in Cooker anymore. To say the interior of the restaurant was renovated is an understatement. The owners of northern Montgomery County’s newest Asian restaurant, which opened Jan. 2, 2007, spent five months gutting and renovating the building at 7580 Poe Ave. that used to house Cooker’s Restaurant, and before that, China Coast. The result is visually stunning. And the food lives up to the decor.
i love the sushi menu at mr lee's and they got very fresh fish, working in a japanese restaurant for over 8 years, i am picky about the quality of the fish when i order sushi at restaurant. this restaurant is very beautiful & clean. i really enojy dine at mr lee's with family and friends every time when i visit dayton.
well done, chef.
My husband and I are in Mr. Lee's about once a week. The staff has always been very friendly and a couple waiters/waitresses know just what we want before we order. Mr. Lee is very friendly and interacts with customers to ask about their evening. Hands down, Mr. Lee's is the best place for sushi in the Dayton area. Shen, the sushi chef, is amazing. We almost always sit at the bar so we can discuss our families, etc.
I have been to Mr. Lee's numerous times and have even taken friends and family and the food has always been great. I hope they continue to wow the customer and have great success!
When you walk into Mr. Lee's Fine Asian Dining, you get the impression that this is going to be a wonderful meal. Please make sure you leave that impression at the door. You are led to a table and forced to wait an obscene amount of time for the overworked staff to finally come take your order, at which time you are greeted rather unenthusiastically. They seem uncaring about your order and your experience. They take your order and move on somewhere else to take another order before they turn yours in. This often leads to mixed-up or incorrect orders. The wait for your food to come is unbearable. The food smells delicious, so you are expecting an amazing meal. First, the appetizer comes after about 15 minutes. I ordered the tempura vegetables and shrimp. The shrimp was undercooked, as were some of the vegetables. The rest of the vegetables were somewhat burnt. Finally, after almost an hour, whether it's General Tso's Chicken or Veggie Fried Rice, your meal arrives. Mine happened to be General Tso's and Veggie Fried Rice. I received my rice correctly, but my chicken was Sweet & Sour. Upon pointing this out, my server tried to convince me I had ordered the Sweet & Sour. After several minutes of arguing, she finally agreed to replace my dish without even an apology. I received my corrected order some 20 minutes later. The chicken tasted very bland, and the sauce was almost tasteless, other than major bitterness. I decided that maybe I should order something else, thinking that this may have just been one bad dish. The owner of the restaurant came up to my table and tried to convince me to order something totally different while trying to order some pork. I did not want the dish he kept pushing me to order, but he refused to stop. Eventually he took my order and placed it. It came back as the dish he had suggested. After getting yet another dish corrected, I decided it was time for me to cut my losses and leave. The wait for my check was almost as long as my wait for the appetizer. Upon reading my check, I noticed they charged me for the meal I ordered and the dishes they mistakenly sent me. After getting this corrected, I hurried out the door, never to return again. Thank you, Melinda, for a terrible meal. My wife and I shall not be returning.
