Today was my first visit to Lee's Korean Restaurant. The food was excellent . . . a little pricey but delicious. The service was terrible. The waitress was rude. She was always in a rush. It appeared she was the only waitress on duty. Maybe, that was her reason for being in a rush, but it was no reason for her to throw my meal at me instead of placing it on the table. She did not return to my table until I asked for a glass of water. She did not ask me about my meal or if I needed anything else, but she was sure to ask me about my tip before I left. I was blown away. I will never visit this establishment again.
My parents started taking to Lee's when I was just a child in the late 80's.Their fod is always delicious nd sastifying. I recently lived in South Korea as an English Teacher so really enjoying coming to Lee's now more than ever to enjoy authentic Korean Dishes to remind me of my wonderful time in Korea.
I traveled in Korea recently and have had plenty of opportunities to sample authentic Korean cuisine. Plus I am friends with many Koreans in Louisville and have eaten plenty of Korean food prepared in their kitchens. So I can with some certainty that Lee's is an excellent place to find authentic recipes. Although the atmosphere of Lee's is a bit run-down and needs updating, I cannot say enough good things about the quality of food there. It's fresh, hot, nutritious, and delights the eye. Be sure to order the Stone Bibam Bop for a real treat. You won't find that dish anywhere else in town!
I have been going to LEE'S since 1986 and they have maintained their great service and same great Korean food.
If you love Korean food as much as I do or would like to take your friends and family out for a flavorable oriental experience, take them to Lee's.
I have no dislikes about this restaurant. They located in a good location, very clean, and good food. They have great customer service skills, and is very polite. The food fills you up and is good on taste and quailty. It's a very homey pleasant restaurant. Nothing to fancy and nothing to dual...Just the perfect restaurant to keep a relax compusure. My favorite dish there is the Boo gul gi dish mild, served with steamed rice, cucumber kim chee, bean sprouts, marinated potatoes, and a few other sides when you eat in the restaurant. This dish is beef, for those who don't know, but it's a great/excellent dish. You will enjoy it. It's a very convient restaurant off Newburg Rd/Bishop LN, off the Watterson. GO and ENJOY Lee's, like I do, you won't regret it.
