Lee’s Wok is a casual dining restaurant located in Discovery Gardens, at a stone’s throw from Ibn Battuta Mall. Serving Pan Asian cuisine, it shares it dining space with Gabbar’s Grills, which specialises in cuisine from the northern part of India. What I find intriguing is that they have tried to keep the authenticity of the food that they offer by having two different kitchens and different cooks for both the cuisines. Read my review of Gabbar’s Grills here.
The interior decoration is a mix of Indian and Chinese curios and there are hand-painted bottles on all tables to reiterate the fact that recycling can be done by anyone, anywhere in anyway.
We visited this outlet on a weekday for dinner. Even though the no. of people dining in was not that huge, there were a large number of orders for delivery.
The starters we had were Dry Chilli Chicken and Chicken Sui Mai. Chilli Chicken was juicy and a little spicy while the Sui Mai’s were served steaming hot. Dip them in soy sauce or sweet and chilli sauce and enjoy. Perfect for Dubai’s weather right now.
For the mains, we had Veg. Fried Rice, Veg. Hakka Noodles and Chicken Manchurian. The fried rice was nice and paired well with chicken dish. The chicken dish tasted good but different from a Manchurian, I felt it had a lot of ginger. The Hakka noodles was quiet bland. But upon mixing with the sauces provided, it was edible.
For dessert, we had Mango Sticky Rice served with extra Coconut Milk. It was very delicious and sweet, and we all loved it. I even drank the remaining coconut milk. Only wish the mangoes were a little more riper.
Overall, a decent place for dine-in or home delivery with some tasty Chinese dishes and big portion sizes.
