The food and service were excellent and we enjoyed being made feel welcome even if it was a little hard to see the menu in the dark. We would be very happy to recommend Luxsmith to anyone who likes something a little different flavor.

Another enjoyable evening at Luxsmith. It certainly provides high quality modern asian food. Full of flavour and great service.

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.

Honestly my favourite restaurant out West, I am so happy every time I come here! The food is incredible and service is warm and personal. They also cater so well to dietary requirements, my coeliac friend is always able to sample a good portion of the menu.

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.

Very disappointed.

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

My partner and I went to Luxsmith for the first time for their five-course valentines day dinner ahead of a movie screening. Not only was the food absolutely incredible (I'm serious, my partner and I could not fault it) but the staff were so incredibly kind and friendly. Knowing we had to get to a movie screening, they even sped up our courses to make sure we got out the door in time! My partner and I spent the rest of the night raving about it, and we've vowed to go back ASAP. It was busy because of valentines day but our table was tucked into a little corner and still felt cozy and romantic. One of the best dining experiences I've ever had.

The food and atmosphere were memorable however the service was too fast. Our main course was served while we were still eating our first and it felt a little transactional . Nonetheless we will try again .. hopefully it will be better next time .

Every dish was full of flavour and really well balanced with spice and heat. We had the cauliflower pakora, chicken ribs, red duck curry, lamb ribs, rice an roti - heaps of food for 2 people. Attentive service and a great rose by the glass. AND unlimited sparkling water by the glass for $5 per person, brilliant!
