“We dined late on a Sunday night at the end of a very busy weekend for the staff-both Mother's Day and graduation weekend for UIUC. Service was attentive but food was slow coming out, but that was understandable due to the crowd they accommodated all weekend. All wait staff we encountered were professional and still smiling at the end of what was a very busy day for them. It was our first time dining here and we would definitely return.“

“Ambiance: The first thing I noticed is the amazing ambiance. It has one of the nicest interiors out of all the restaurants in campus town. However, I was thrown off by disposable cups for water. Service: The waitress was very attentive and our food arrived very quickly. However, the two dishes did arrive separately with about a 5-10 minutes gap between the two. Food: The eggplant dish was excellent. The eggplant is the perfect texture and there is plenty of savory sauce to cover all the vegetables. The pork was also good but it was a bit too sweet. The cuts are also a little too big and required a lot of chewing to finish a piece. The batter that cover the pork has an interesting texture as it is a bit chewy and less crispy. However overall, it was still a good dish, but I probably wouldn't order it again unlike the eggplant.“

“I had an amazing dining experience at this Chinese grill fish restaurant. Their signature dish, the grilled fish, was an absolute delight. The perfect combination of traditional Chinese spices and seasonings made each bite a flavorful journey. The fish itself was tender and flaky, practically melting in my mouth. It's definitely a taste of home, and I highly recommend this spot for a comforting meal shared with loved ones or a solo indulgence in delicious Chinese cuisine.“

“I have been to the Space three times. Each time was better than the last - the edges of the burgers lacier and more crisp, the sauces more satisfying and complex, the cook looking more and more like Trevor Moore of Whitest Kids U Know (rip) - and I now fear if I go again that they’ll be the only place I want to get burgers. Dangereuse. Go immediately.“

“Beautifully decorated Mexican restaurant. The menu and vibe are very similar to Casa del Mar in Urbana. The enchiladas supremas were excellent, and the salsa was super fresh with just the right amount of spice. The service was efficient and quick! Prices were very good, in my opinion. This location has housed a few Mexican restaurants. Casa Margaritas is the BEST Mexcian place that has been in this spot so far. Hopefully, it lasts!! ?“

“My boyfriend and I love trying new places and this was our choice last night. It was very good! I had the fried catfish, collard greens and french fries, he had the creole fettuccine pasta and we shared the Philly cheesesteak egg rolls as an appetizer. The egg rolls were so good, they came with a sweet n sour sauce you wouldn’t think would go together, but wow, it was a great mix. His pasta was cooked perfectly and with so many good flavors in the sauce and in the shrimp, I tried a bite and my tastebuds were dancing. The catfish was fried to perfection with a delicious light and crunchy breading which paired great with the collard greens. Not everyone had the talent to make good greens and well they do! We didn’t try the dessert because we were full from the generous portions served for dinner but it all sounded good. The staff was extremely friendly and our waitress was great too. We will be going back they had so much too choose from that sounded so delicious.“

Auntie Lee's Chinese Kitchen Chinese • $
49b E Green St, Champaign

“Worth the read, but short answer 10/10 absolutely recommend! Fantastic Food, Large Portions, excellent price! Today, the employees at Signarama had a lunch celebration and had the opportunity to try Auntie Lee's for the first time. The menu consisted of various dishes such as Pork Xiao Long Bao, Tianjin Pork Meat Bun, Crab Rangoon, Sweet and Sour Chicken, Chicken and Broccoli, General Tso's Chicken, Pork Egg Rolls, and the House Special Lo Mein. Since Auntie Lee's is not open for lunch, the owner, Kit, kindly delivered our special meal to us. She was extremely friendly and had a positive demeanor. The aroma of the food was so enticing that we couldn't resist starting to fix our plates even before she had left. The taste of the food exceeded our expectations. Each dish was packed with flavor and was truly enjoyable. The Tianjin Pork, a large stuffed dough with pork, was perfectly cooked and flavorful. We also had a veggie version, but it was quickly devoured by others before I could try it. The General Tso's Chicken had a delightful blend of spice and flavor. Although I tend to avoid spicy food, I managed to have a small taste. It was good, but a bit too spicy for my personal preference. However, my coworkers raved about it and unanimously agreed that it was the most flavorful General Tso's Chicken they had ever had, giving it a perfect rating of 10/10. The House Special Lo Mein was a major hit among the employees. It was tender and packed with shrimp, chicken, and beef, making it a satisfying dish. Normally, I avoid sweet and sour chicken due to the imbalance of meat and breading. However, Auntie Lee's version was perfectly balanced, not overly sweet or sour, and the chicken was of excellent quality. The pork egg rolls were substantial in size and filled with a generous amount of vegetables and pork. They were truly enjoyable. Now, onto my personal favorite, the Crab Rangoon. I am usually very particular about Crab Rangoon, but I must say, Auntie Lee's has the best one in Champaign. Instead of the traditional roll shape, Kit folds it to resemble a crab, resulting in a more generously packed filling. I was in heaven while devouring it. If you haven't tried Auntie Lee's, we highly recommend that you make a visit. They are open until 1am and offer various options such as online ordering, dine-in, takeout, and delivery. You won't regret indulging in a meal from Auntie Lee's. Once again, we extend our gratitude to Kit for making Signarama's day truly amazing with her delicious food. Additionally, it is worth noting that the portions are quite generous, and the pictures I am sharing were taken after several people had already served themselves. Absolutely delicious!“

“Fast service. Good ingredients. They have a lot of seafood, so I assume most of it is imported or frozen, which obviously won't beat fresh seafood, but very good for Champaign-Urbana area. I would recommend for anyone wanting a quick meal.“

“As a vegan, there are limited options. But the options they do offer are excellent in quality and freshness. I highly recommend the veg lo mein. I always request that they add tofu. Delish! I also love their crispy tofu - you will find it in the appetizer section. Make it a large and order a side of rice and you have an entree. They have plenty of veggie dishes, all of high quality. What I would love to see is for them to offer a vegan eggplant dish, orange tofu, and also maybe, if they really want to stand out from other area Chinese restaurants, introduce seitan "meat" where they can use that to substitute for the real meat in their meat based entrees, just as long as the sauces are vegan. Lastly, their prices are very reasonable and portion sizes are generous.“

I called and they issued me a full refund that will be within the next 2 weeks. I am disappointed that this happened, but very happy with their customer service.“
