Overall very good, but not quite there.
KF shashimi great, fish curry great, Korean rib ok.
Duck had lovely flavors but was on the tough side.
Like the ambience they are trying to build but It’s a little too dark in there!
Overall great to support locals but it lacks the finish of a chin chin which I think is what they trying for.

Good friendly staff, and very knowledgeable on both menu and wine. Small plates were lovely and the large plates a bit small for price, but still delicious. Great place to to a partner or friend for special occasion.

We have been to this restaurant quite a few times over the last few years its great sometimes other times the food is ordinary - the prices are high for the food you get and they have had the same menu for far to too long. A change in the menu every now and then or weekly specials would be something to go there for.
We drove over the westgate to go there but may not go back for a while the curry we ordered was very tasteless and flooded in coconut milk. Also the wooden chairs are very uncomfortable

Amazing service. My friend cannot eat anything with shellfish due to anaphylaxis. The waiter went out of his way to ensure that she would be safe, and even organised for the kitchen to change the deep fryer oil so that she wouldn’t risk cross contamination! They were very quiet on this evening but it was still lovely to know they cared.

Delicious food ! Really funky place with a great vibe. The wine was stunning. The older staff/manager were really spot on, the younger staff were good but forgot a few things. It didn't really bother us as the overall experience was fantastic. Can't wait to go back

We had a family gathering here for my Mum’s 70th. We had a group of 15, including an 11 week old baby and Luxsmith catered to everything, including a large pram and last minute table additions. The food is incredible and beer & wine list is fab. Highly recommend this restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner. So great to have a place of this quality in Seddon, only a short walk from my home.

We ordered a selection of large and small plates, all arrived at our table at the same time, which made it very uncomfortable due to space and also made us feel rushed to eat everything before it got cold. Would much prefer a slower casual transition. We also had to ask for our water to be refilled.

This was my second trip to Luxsmith . The first experience was terrific . The second not so. The service was pushy and rude interupting conversations and making us feel we were doing them a favour by ordering . The $6 single scallops were dissapointing and over priced. The calamari was beyond spicy with none of the 5 of us able to eat it and the steak tartare was chunky and chewy. It was a shame as last time it was really good.

This was our first visit to Luxsmith. We went for a night out with friends, including our kids (12-14 years). The food was fantastic with a great selection to choose from. The menu was not too large which I like, otherwise I feel like I can't make a decision. Although in saying that I still had trouble deciding as it all sounded great. We decided to share our meals, which was even better as we got to have a try of almost everything. I think if I had to choose my favourites it would be the beef tartare and the sticky lamb ribs. We also had the the choc mouse and panna cotta for dessert, both were great. We will definitely be back to Luxsmith as we are almost locals and in any case, it is definitely worth the drive if you aren't.

Went for a Melbourne food and wine festival event. Three course meal with matching wine. I’ve had pretty good food here before, but this event was really disappointing. For the first course the squid was hard and rubbery, for the main the crispy duck had zero crisp and was also pretty chewy, rubbery and tasteless. Then the poached pear for dessert was hard. So poor across the board. Bizarrely also zero carbs in meal, which may appeal to some, but I was still hungry at the end. So disappointing across the board and not good value at nearly $100 a head. I always wondered why this place didn’t get better reviews, but this experience made it a bit clearer.

The salad were ways too much acid. Vietnamese foods call for balance. Out of the dishes, the beetle beef was a stand out.

First time here, we were 6. Food was good although plates are on the small side eg. cauliflower pakora 'small plate' was a solitary pakora, ditto the croquette. Noise was extreme however, it's a sound Zoo. Couldn't hear across the table. Ate fast and left. Didn't stick around for dessert. What IS it with Melbourne restos, cram patrons in, hard surfaces everywhere? Will not return.

Special Valentine’s Day dinner consisted of 5 Course ‘Feed Me’ Menu (shared banquet style menu. While the dinner was well patronised, it didn’t feel crowded, the ambience was great and the wait staff were friendly and attentive. The 5 courses were amazing, special mention goes to the desert.

All in all a great night
