Headed to Lee Lee on Monday morning. Saw the new buffet and bbq place next door and gave it a try.

Huge, huge selection, even at lunch. I got there right after it opened at 11:00 a.m., and it was pretty crowded by noon. A few unique selections included a made-to-order soup area (wonton, dumpling, etc.); this is in addition to the basic hot and sour, egg drop, fish ball soup, and a very unique chicken and ginseng that were on the buffet line. The buffet had a nice selection of dim sum as well: pork buns, sesame balls, shu mai, etc. And their sushi selection was very large and varied. Numerous rolls as well as octopus, yellowtail, tilapia, spicy tuna, etc. sushi.

Since there's an attached Korean BBQ market (great place to pick up duck, pork, cuttlefish, sausage, etc.), the buffet included delicious pork (with the crackling), duck, salted chicken, sliced bbq pork, etc. As for the seafood, even at lunch they had baked oysters, baked mussels, stuffed whole shrimp, whole fish, crab legs, etc.

In addition, they had a huge selection (probably 20+) of other Asian specialties (the requisite orange chicken, etc.), but they also had very unique (for a buffet) choices such as chicken feet, etc. They really do have a vast selection!

They had a nice selection of cold salads as well, including kimchi, pig ear, jellyfish, and excellent squid and seaweed salads.

Nothing too exciting for dessert, although they had 6 flavors of ice cream (red bean was ok) and a large fruit area (unfortunately, all canned, but the loquats, lychees, and longans were tasty). I would suggest visiting the "regular" soup area on the buffet line, because they did have a dessert soup: sweet white fungus (subtle, but a nice sweetness to it).

This was all for $7.25 ($6.50 for seniors). I believe dinner and weekends are $12.50ish, but includes a bit more seafood, I believe.

I liked this buffet because it had a number of unique offerings. I'll definitely be back.
