Lucy Liu Restaurant
Take a journey through Southeast Asian cuisine sampling hot, sour, salty and sweet plates like a Sticky Braised Pork Belly with Red Chilli and Coconut Salad or a Slow Roasted Short Rib Rendang with Turmeric Pickles and Sambal. Match these with fresh and fruity cocktails in our bar while you wait for your casual table to be ready or sit down with a Coconut Mojito on arrival. Minutes from the MCG, Rod Laver Arena and right in the heart of Melbourne Lucy Liu’s great for any occasion.
Daily 11:00 am–2:45 pm
Daily 3:00 pm–10:00 pm
We are able to offer a private sit down dining experience for 60 to 100 guests with seasonal, fresh flavours and the classic Lucy Liu dining experience.
A canape style function is available for parties of 80 to 180 and is designed with flavours from the current menu.
My family is visiting from Sydney and didn’t know what to expect. From the second we walked in we knew we had found something special.
The food was superb. Truly. An incredible dinner in a modern, lively setting.
The owner was really personable and our waiter attuned and diligent.
I was pleased to learn they have just celebrated their 4th anniversary. Not surprised as Lucy Liu is definitely not a fad, it’s here for the long haul.
Awesome food, fantastic experience a great way to spend a Sunday lunch with friends. Drinks prices a bit over the top for a Gin and Tonic. The staff are very helpful and happy to give you options.
Loved the food full of flavor and plenty of options to choose from. We had a few smaller share plates and one 'main' or larger meal with a side of greens. All lovely. The service was very good and took particular care in paying attention to what we wanted and also suggest options. It's not a 'quiet' place but that was OK for us - if you like quiet restaurants then maybe not for you. If you like great food then check it out.
This was my 3rd time at Lucy Liu and it did not disappoint. The service is absolutely amazing and the food is impeccable. I'll be back again very soon.
Best food so yummy and amazing service.. can’t wait to come back
Great night, great service , food & drinks arrived quickly. Very enjoyable night. Thanks
It’s now my favourite restaurant in the CBD. Every time In in the City it’s my 1st preference
Always a fantastic meal and service. Have had many occasions to dine here since they opened and it never disappoints
Great food and atmosphere, however we were told our time was up before we could order dessert which was a shame.
Great service, Food and atmosphere was great. Great choice menu
One needs to choose carefully
Some dishes great and great value eg the thai fish cakes
Others eg the pork belly was small and fatty
2 very small peices for $22 is poor
Inconsistency across dinners also
Fabulous food, which was what drew me back here for my second visit. Hopefully there will be many more. My only complaint was the volume of the music, which made conversation difficult.
Stunning food and service as always. Our waiter was fantastic and the quality of the food was very high.
Fabulous food and service was on point! Highly recommend the peking duck dumplings and drunken chicken.
The service was faultless, all staff were attentive and aware of our needs. The food was amazing! With an exciting wine list. But GOSH it gets busy!! Make sure you book!!
Our favorite restaurant. We always eat here every time we visit Melbourne
With a table full of food allergies we were astounded by the service and care to ensure our experience was wonderful.
We had a fantastic experience at Lucy Liu. Both my friend and I are vegan and the waitress was so accommodating and knew exactly which dishes we could order. She even got a meat dish substituted for us and charged only about 1/3 of the price! Great atmosphere, lots of delicious flavours and service was fabulous. Definitely coming back!
Terrific place! Definitely book so you get a table as it was very busy. Delicious, fresh, exciting food! Excellent service, really friendly staff. Will be back!
Delicious meal but noisy. Helpful with explaining menu and ordering appropriately.
The food was exceptional, amazing flavours, great concept and the service was impeccable. It was my gf's birthday so they made it a very special night for her. Very impressed. Thank you
Loooove Lucy Lui. This place rocks for ambience, amazing food that's consistently a knock out. Brilliant cocktails! It's a busy place but the staff manage it so smoothly.
Excellent food and service. Will be back and be recommending to others
Great food, great ambience and great drinks. What can you ask for more.
It was a great fdining experience - we had a theatre show and the staff made sure we we were looked after and ready to leave in time.
Great food. Attentive service. Ok prices. What more do you need?
Used to be a great spot to catch up with friends. I think the owners are now chasing higher profits, though, and while it might work in the short term, it won't in the long run. Nowadays getting a drink at the bar takes ages (more staff required), and restricting diners to 2-hour slots, just so you can get 3 sittings in per evening, is not conducive to a relaxed evening dining with friends... and nor does it make it fun for the staff to have to hurry-up guests all the time. Won't be going back.
The team at Lucy Liu never fail to ease you into their relaxed, hip vibe - intelligent & informed - skilled bar staff, pitch perfect cocktails and a great wine list. The steamed blue eye is superb and oh so subtle; match it with some luscious Alsace Pinot Gris and you’re in great shape.
Catered for diatry requiement well but music too loud and not a pleasant dining experience. Food was freash but does not stand out from others restaurants.
Booked for our daughter’s birthday as she had been keen to dine here. Friendly and informative waitress was wonderful in suggesting combinations of small and large plates. Daughter and her friend enjoyed delicious cocktails, Melbourne Gin Company G&Ts for my wife and I. Good wine by the glass and an interesting wine list. The food was prompt and delicious. Plenty still to try. We will definitely be back.
Our waitress was brilliant, food service was very prompt and delicious.
Would strongly recommend booking ahead.
Great food, service and atmosphere.
I would and have recommended my friends and family to come here.
A must go to, great food excellent service with a very friendly atmosphere.
Excellent food - wonderful flavours. Small plates are amazing.
We always have a great time here never ever been dissapointed and will be back soon
Excellent, food delicious and service was great too.
Best mojito I have had in recent memory, and I have had a fair few ;-) Other cocktail I had was also excellent, so night was off to a very good start!
We did Let Lucy Choose - chefs selection and every meal was excellent. Next time will order from the menu, as there were great dishes I look forward to trying. But for value and and letting the night unfold, LLC was great.
We sat next to the walkway, which was distracting, so would ask for a table against a wall next time. Tables are close, but you can see why, full house - as the food, drinks, service and atmosphere was all excellent!
The music was too loud for conversation to the point our party left early
Great ambience and fantastic food as recommended by our wonderful waitress. Overall a fabulous dining experience and will definitely be returning to do it again.
The food was amazing, especially the Soft shell crab pancakes were to die for! Staff are wonderful. Lucy Liu was amazing and had the best atmosphere. Will be back next time in Melbourne.
