Lucy Liu Restaurant
Blurring the lines between diverse cuisines, the menu serves up both street and refined, modern Asian food that breaks with tradition and has flavour at its core. Executive Chef and co-owner, Zac Cribbes, advocates both Thai and Chinese flavours, both playing a huge role in the bold and enticing menu.
The Lucy Liu experience was created to be fun, exciting and accessible for all. From office workers enjoying a lunch-time get-together, a special occasion celebrated in the private dining room, an intimate dinner-for-two, or a group of friends sharing a table amongst the buzzing crowd, every experience is honed to meet the occasion.

Amazing food and environment. Much better going during the week!
If you want to be knocked over by wonderful flavours and fresh produce Lucy Liu is the place for you.
loved it … absolutely amazing food with awesome service :)
Amazing swift service, top quality food, fantastic restaurant.
will be back !
I tried different dishes this time and can’t believe how well presented and the supurb tastes. I will be back next Melbourne trip.
Was recommended this Restaurant by friends, wow, looks can be deceiving as outside did not look much but once inside, we were blown away. If you want a quiet romantic dinner, possibly not but the food was simply outstanding, the tumeric cauliflower and Pork Hock(for two) were next level. The service for such a packed restaurant was similarly the best. Warning though you will need to book
Great food, excellent service! Would definitely come back to try more of the menu.
Lucy Liu is perfect for a fun night out with good food, friendly waiters and an energetic vibe. The soft crab entree was a highlight 👌🏼
Omg that salad is to die for. Particularly impressed with the win e sommelier who identified my palate and suggested alternative grape variety to what I had specified. A bold move and a winning Move.. we will be back !
We had an enjoyable meal, picking a few dishes we haven’t tried before, delicious. We tried a couple of glasses of a very decent Chardonnay, service was good as usual. We will be back.
Came back after a sensational meal a month ago. Not as good this time around and the service was not as attentive. Some of the smaller dishese were a bit pricey, but overall pretty good - just not blown away like we were last time.
Wow...loved it! From funky entrance, ambient lighting, friendly staff and food that tasted so fresh and delicious. The flavours...worth coming from South Australia!
In a word "Brilliant" you can't beat respected fresh ingredients utilised to tantalise your taste buds.
My husband & I dined here on Sat night. Great food & service. Nice fusion dishes with Japanese, Korean & Thai flavours. Tables are very close to each other in a small space so felt a bit squashed in! Pricey which is the case for most good city restaurants.
Food excellent,only slight complaint is seating. Very CLOSE to next door diners. Staff well trained which lets a lot of restaurants down.
After visiting Lucy Liu on a separate occasion I was in Melbourne as my brother who works overseas was in Australia on a work flight and we decided to go out as a family (also my parents wedding anniversary) and I was confident that they would all enjoy the restaurant, I was not mistaken.
My only thing is that I collect gin so hopefully one day I can buy a bottle of the special Heathcote Lucy Liu gin onsite as I had a G&T and was very much a fan...
It's our second visit as we live in WA.
Love the flavor, freshness, friendly service and atmosphere.
Will be back when in Melbourne next!
Thank you team x
Great menu, service and wine list. what more could you want?
Must eat here. Amazing food and the service is fantastic. Order the banquet and don't look back.
Small group catching. Great accommodation from the staff for one of our party allergic to MSG. Delicious as always. Good wine selection.
We asked for our order to come out in order of our entre and main, but came out in the order that it was cooked which annoyed us. The good news is that when we complained to the waitress, she took the two meals that we incorrectly served off the bill which was appreciated....good recovery and won me back!
Excellent service and food. Love the express menu.
VERY loud base beat background (music?) service very rushed . Service sloppy (spilled beer on us twice when rushing to deliver beer to the couple next to us). Everyone over 40 looked displeased with the environment. But.....the food was good.
Hotel concierges need to know about this prior to recommending.
Great central venue in Melbourne for delicious Asian food.
Food was very salty even we have already reminded the service staff to reduce salt. We had 7-plater Let Lucy Choose Menu and it’s not worth for $68pp. We won’t be back.
Outstanding food, fab location & a great ambience. This place is definitely in my top 3 restaurants in the cbd!
Loved it, food was gorgeous. Only concern we had was that it was cold inside- went outside to warm up.
Great location and food. Not enough vegan options. There was a vegan diner in our group.
I have been to Lucy Liu before, but not in a little while and I'm happy to say that it did not disappoint. The service was excellent from the moment we were greeted by the Maitre D' at the door. The food was full of flavour and absolutely delicious. It's a little pricey but well worth it!
Great food service and atmosphere
Food delicious, service excellent... music was a little bit loud.
Amazing food and great vibe! Will definitely be coming back!
Great place with good music and awesome food, highly recommended
Great wine recommendation with superb food. Everything was fab.
Delicious food. Slightly rushed with the service. Cocktails were amazing. Staff were lovely
Food was great but we felt a bit rushed through the meal
Great value for money. Staff are attentive and efficient and really friendly. The food is delicious beautiful presentation. Friendly lively inviting ambience. Music was great just a touch too loud. Will definitely go again and recommend to friends.

Let Lucy choose is a good option
Really tasty food and great vegan options. Attentive and friendly staff, very helpful with food ordering.
Delicious food, the smoked trout salad and pancakes were out of this world! Perfect fancy night out.
