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.

Everything about Lucy Liu‘s is great. From the entrance to the place to the food. Everything we picked from the menu was amazing !! Definitely want to go back !!
One of my favourite places to dine in Melbourne. Lunch or Dinner always great service, cocktails and delicious food!
Food and service were amazing as always. Cocktails were outstanding!!
Was excited to finally go back after lockdown. The food, staff & atmosphere did not disappoint.
Excellent end to girls weekend with great food, cocktails & Lucy Lui.
Lovely lunch - solid menu, great cocktails and above average service.
Lucy Liu is always on point. Service is impeccable and the food is always outstanding. It is always a safe place to book when I am entertaining clients as I know it will be a wonderful experience for all.
I've been loyal to Lucy Liu since their opening under different ownership. The standard was set very high by Scott & Michael, and that standard has only been improved upon under the new operator. This is my #1 venue for entertaining clients or friends out of town - you will not regret your decision. Huge thanks to everyone on the Lucy team - your hospitality and food was 100% on point, again - as always.
Always a pleasure dining here :) we love it . Great food and great service

Food was amazing. Staff were fabulous. We had a great night. We will be back!!
We came for lunch (woohoo for eased covid restrictions!) and had a fantastic experience. The staff were friendly and helpful with ordering and the food was delicious. Standouts were the kingfish and salt and pepper chicken wings. We’ll definitely come back again.
Loved every dish, delicious
The staff were super helpful and attentive and we had a brilliant time
Fantastic food and excellent passionate helpful staff. a great atmosphere and food to match. The helpful and passionate staff made the experience perfect.
Great to be back! Always a great experience.. Food was excellent as usual..
It was good to get out after the first restrictions lift.
Even though the restaurant was quiet due to 20 people restriction the staff made atmosphere.
Big thank you to the bar staff and wait staff for making it a Fun experience back out after co-vid.
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!
