Since September 1981, House of Lee first has been recognized for offering great food as well as an excellent service. The attention to customer service and high food quality soon made the House of Lee so popular that there were long line-ups. The restaurant had expanded four times over the years in order to serve more customers. However, there were still long line-ups. As a result, the buffet was introduced to serve customers faster and to allow sampling of most of our dishes on the House of Lee menu.
