The decision to visit Old Nassau came from an invitation extended by owner Kay via TikTok. Lee expressed his gratitude for the recommendation in the video, highlighting the power of social media in connecting communities and fostering memorable experiences.

Old Nassau, in addition to receiving praise from Lee, garnered acclaim from a group of patrons who traveled from Niagara Falls to savor Kay's delectable offerings.

Lee praised Old Nassau, a local restaurant, in a video that has since garnered widespread attention. With a mouthful of fried whole snapper, Lee praised the dish as "seasoned to perfection," awarding it a remarkable 9.6 out of 10.

Not stopping there, he lavished similar praise on the restaurant's banana pancake with guava butter and steamed pork chop with peas and rice, though he was not as happy about the mac and cheese.

The influencer even claimed that the restaurant had the "best food" he's tasted since arriving in the city. He went on to surprise the restaurant owner, Kay, by generously tipping each employee $500.

In response to Lee's review, Kay acknowledged that while the wait times could be longer due to the restaurant's commitment to fresh, scratch-made dishes, she expressed excitement for the anticipated surge in business. "We're ready," she said.

One user, @Jay Kennedy, said, "Keith Lee has never given a 9.7 on anything....WOW...." Meanwhile, another user @Rae shared their positive experience, stating "Went to Nassau for vacation. Best place. Best people. Best food. @Kiera commented, "Toronto winning the food tour I love to see it."
