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.

We have been to a Lucy Liu’s a few times food was always amazing, this time most of the food that was meant to be hot was not hot enough.
I also felt in these Covid times we were sitting way to close to other customers, we were on a small table with people on each side definitely no social distancing going on..
Not sure if you are under staffed but the service felt rushed and waiters looked like they were under the pump not the usual conversation.
After we paid the bill and gave the tip we were not given a goodbye or any acknowledgment.
Your restaurant is one of my Favs but I might have to reconsider if things don’t improve. Sorry to be harsh but this is my honest opinion.
Delicious food, great atmosphere, and terrific staff
Food, service and experience all amazing. Energetic atmosphere with lively kitchen. Amazing cocktails and menu.
Family dinner after day at the tennis. Food and service exceptional.
We celebrated our sons 21st at Lucy Liu yesterday. The food was amazing and brought out at paced intervals so we didn’t feel rushed. It was delicious and presently beautifully. The waiting staff were friendly and professional and the ambience of Lucy Liu completed a great dining experience.
Excellent food, great annotated menu showing all the various options by allergy type, and wonderful attentive service.
Delicious food with so much flavour . Great menu. Great cocktails. One of the best restaurants in Melbourne with out breaking the bank . Loved everything !
Booked a table for 9pm . Excellent meal but tbh food came so quickly felt like they were trying to turn tables despite the time.
To top it off the card machine didn’t accept foreign cards! We need to start learning to treat our intl tourists like gold again - card issues, waitress was hard to understand and foreign Covid certificates given extra scrutiny not sure why ?
Fortunately I am locally based and could pick up the bill and food and wine made up for it !
The food and service were both excellent, everything we ate was delicious.
However the ambiance leaves a lot to be desired compared to other top restaurants of similar prices. It was very noisy, that together with loud music makes it hard to have a conversation. Tables are very close together, so you are almost touching the people next to you & they can overhear everything you say as you have to almost yell at each other. The place was full of pretentious people busily taking photos of their meals to put in Instagram. Not a environment where you could have a good meal, drinks & conversation.
Great location for a lovely meal before the theatre. Really enjoyed the food and service was friendly and helpful
Great food and service, highly recommend a visit!!
We were seated uncomfortably close to the table beside us. Small plates were nice, but the curry was bland.
Food was delicious
Would definitely recommend
Wonderful service and the food was amazing. The only down side was the background music which appeared to be the same annoying beat on replay.
We had a great time! Food was amazing, cocktails delicious & our server was very attentive
great restaurant !!! great service !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LOVE Lucy! Staff and food are always amazing! One of the best in Melbourne.
I really enjoyed the food selection and the waiters' recommendations
My partner and I came to the restaurant for a late lunch date and it was amazing. Richard was our server, he was knowledgeable and gave great suggestions that we enjoyed. We will be back!
We had a great time !

Thank you all for bringing us a lovely experience to replace our Christmas spent in isolation.
Simply loved all facets of what Lucy Liu had to offer. Lovely ambience, delicious menu and lovely service.
Highly, highly recommended 😘😋
Outstanding food and service. Great value for money - highly recommended!
Waiters know their menu, great suggestions and every part of our 3 course meal was delicious. Good serving sizes.
Our waiter made our experience even more special.
Great food, atmosphere and service. A must when visiting Melbourne :)
I love the modern Asian fusion food in Lucy Liu. Strongly recommend the King fish sashimi dish and oh my god it was really yummy. Friendly and helpful staff and love the restaurant decor as well.
Great Asian restaurant. Good variety for vegetarians and pescatarians. Well definitely be here again
Visually exciting food that was Delicious - great textures and flavours. That staff made the meal as they were attentive and checked back to ensure that all was going well. Loved the space with the high ceilings and clever use of timber as an acoustic barrier.
Would only recommend for food. As said by other reviews washroom were just not clean. Service was alright as well. I would give 3.5 if possible
Staff where amazing vibe was on point honestly so nice to go out and have everything about a place good expcailly after Covid. Food was Also so good 😍
We had previously done the 5 and 7 course 'let Lucy choose menu. We ordered the same this year and it wasn't as good as previous years. Servings were tiny and we needed to do a maccas run on the way home. Aside from the food, the service was excellent as always.
Friendly, extremely attentive staff. Delicious food as always.
Lucy Liu never disappoints. Great atmosphere, sensational food and really lovely staff. Thank you
Amazing Food as always
Absolutely fantastic! Cannot recommend this place enough. Food is amazing and caters for all dietary requirements. Staff had amazing positive energy and were so attentive. The ambiance was perfect as well. You couldn’t hear the table next to you due to the care that has been taken with the fit out and noise cancelling materials put on the wall. If I could give this more than 5 stars I would! Can’t wait to visit Melbourne again and come back here.
Such a great restaurant with amazing food. The staff are all so nice and friendly. Would definitely recommend!
Friendly and attentive staff, tasty food and overall good feel. An enjoyable meal.
Great food, quick service. Tables seem very close together given the current environment.
Overwhelmingly a good experience
I was a little underwhelmed with Lucy Liu the food was average and so was the service not visiting there again
