Lee Ho Fook means ‘good fortune for your mouth’ - inspired from the Warren Zevon lyrics in Werewolves of London.
A Chinese restaurant, hidden down a Melbourne laneway, off the iconic Flinders Lane dining precinct.

Our cuisine takes the legacy of deliciousness given to us by generations of Chinese Australians and taking it to a highly personal and creative direction.

A new style of Chinese cuisine.

From the mind of Victor Liong.

    Lovely venue with attentive but not intrusive service. The meal was delicious and my “picky”son enjoyed the wine.

    We have eaten at Lee Ho Fook 3 times this year. After 2 great meals our last visit was disappointing to say the least. The 2 entrees that we had were very nice but it was very slow to arrive. Both entrees were cold entrees. We then waited some considerable time for our next course to be served. We had ordered the signature eggplant dish, which is deep fried. When it finally arrived it was it was cold. We had to send it back and the server agreed that it had taken a long time for us to receive the meal. When the dish was returned it was still at best tepid and the other main that arrived shortly afterwards was also tepid. We were also asked at one point whether we wanted to order more drinks despite the fact that we still had a third of a bottle of wine left to drink. We weren’t charged for the eggplant dish but overall the experience was really disappointing especially as we had really enjoyed it on the 2 previous occasions.

    Chef Victor took care of the ordering & excelled himself with a 5 Star menu. Great combinations, superb produce & magical concepts to tantalize the mind & taste buds. Cannot thank the team enough for helping make it a memorable night for us & guests.

    A fantastic first time at Lee Ho Fook to help celebrate our sons graduation from University. Amazing service from all the staff along with the highest quality food. Love the fact that Monday - Wednesday is BYO which allows a little more budget to be spent on the food. Will certainly be coming back

    This used to be a real favourite of ours and we would go almost every time we went to Melbourne. The setting is the same but the menu has changed to be much less approachable. Gone is the Soy Chicken. The only simple main was the Toothfish (which was very good) and there are no green vegetables available any more. Apart from the Peking Duck, the rest of the dishes were less approachable (even if more authentic). Everything remained high quality; just not to our tastes and previous experience.

    I know it was a special night, I much prefer the usual menu, due to the double sittings 6.30 an 8.30 the staff looked overworked and was not up to the usual standard and although we left at 8.30 many diners were still eating and looked a way off finishing and there was a queue steadily building for the 8.30 sitting Overall disappointing

    Lovely restaurant tucked away in the lane off Flinders Lane. We opted for the upstairs dining which had ambient lighting and had a luxury feel and yet casual. Staff were very welcoming and allowed us for earlier dining than booked time. Would highly recommend the steam toothfish, shark bay scallops and crispy egglant. The half 10 day dry aged peking duck was a bit disappointing as it had gristle in almost half of the 10 slices. Not the traditional peking duck but the sauce was beautiful.

    Love going to Lee Ho Fook. You always can taste the quality of the ingredients. Their take on Chinese cuisine is modern, unfussy, and never disappoints. The Peking duck is stellar. Service is sometimes a bit reserved and unsure, but always friendly. It's one of the most underrated restaurants in Melbourne and certainly the best Chinese restaurant in town.

    First night in town checking out the Melbourne dining scene. Great start. We felt the sea food and veggie dishes were over the top. Peking duck and wagyu beef, just ok. Complex ingredients. Good wine pairings but some really small pours. Better to go midweek and byob.

    Was great food, highlights were the Choux bun and the eggplant. Service was really lacking. Just not attentive and the serving staff had no sense of the room. They left the door to outside open many times, so much so the actual kitchen staff went and closed it.
