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.

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.
This was my first visit to Lucy Liu, for lunch with an old friend. I live 10 minutes walk away, and several neighbors had recommended this restaurant to me as a great local choice.
We chose the ‘lunch express’ deal , which was $28.50 for 4 small dishes, and a drink- perfect for our requirements ( a reasonably quick, light lunch)
The food was fresh and tasty, the service was very good- professional and friendly.
The restaurant is pleasant aesthetically , music
Just a little too loud, but ok.
I recommend Lucy Liu. I certainly will be back, and look forward to dining there in the evening.
A really fun lunch with friends from interstate. Result friendly service and food was great!
Had such a great time at Lucy Luis... food and service was exception. We loved our waiter James (Jimmy). We will definitely be back!
Have been there a couple of times. Service and food is always of a very high standard. Great atmosphere and good value for money.
Lucy Liu was a great way to spend our anniversary :) Food was amazing.....
We had a lovely evening. We brought overseas guests who were most impressed
Very good food and service. Quite noisy and tables are a bit close ... But all round a great place with good feel
First time eating at Lucy Liu. Definitely recommend. Great food, great service, great location, great price. Loved it.
Visited Lucy Liu's with only 40 minutes before we had to leave for a show. The staff directed what side of the menu to order form to ensure that our dishes were served in time. The attentiveness of the staff was spot on perfect and so professional and helpful. The food was absolutely delicious. Between the two of us, we shared the kingfish sashimi, soft shell crab pancake roll, calamari salad, duck dumplings and some roti. Everything was beautiful! Thank you for a great night! Will definitely be back soon to spender longer time and eat more!
Overated, felt we were rushed through our meal and after booking online early as coming from NZ, told we only had 1 hour 25 mins to eat in!! By the manager. Food was very average and would not recommend or go back.
Great dinner as always. Particularly good service too. Thoroughly recommended.
We are regulars and go to Lucy Liu often. Food was good as always but this time the music was way too loud and we couldn't really converse confortably with our table.
Beautiful - food glorious and service great .
could start at beginning of menu and work your way through.
Delicious food and great service each and every time! 👌👍🏻
Loved the vibe, service was great, food intolerances and allergies were taken care of, knowledgeable staff and terrific, tasty food.
It was my birthday and my girlfriend and I went for lunch. Everything was lovely the food was delicious the wine crisp the ambience our main wait staff curtius and aware... until the one of the waiters basically told us me we need to get up and move from our table because the next reservation was there. No please, no apology just a really weird way to get us to leave. We spend a lot of money there and after we did, that’s what we got. I guess we were sitting on a table too long after paying and giving a tip! There was no mention of what time we needed to out however the issue was the way it was approched by the waiter, he was rude, sarcastic and made us leave on a sour note. Let me make this clear however, we were asked to leave after 1.5 hours! I think the manager figure out that we were a disappointed and told us he had a spot at the bar for us but unfortunately it was a little late for that. The look or uncertainty on the waiters face as we left... he knew he’s service was far from appropriate, however I still smiled and said thank you.
Perfect for birthday dinner and drinks, the staff are always so friendly
Delicious food and great service! Food came quickly but we didn't feel rushed through the meal. Cocktails were delicious as well.
Great vibrant and busy restaurant. 7 course feed me banquet option was excellent. Enjoyable evening of Asian Fusion.
The atmosphere, food and experience made for a wonderful evening. The food came out with ease and the service by most was well received.
The other patrons were festive and light hearted which made the evening all that much more enjoyable.
We book in whenever we visit because it’s not just a restaurant but a destination to experience food with emotion and a fantastic venue to be shared with friends, family or colleagues.
Looking forward to our next visit. Keep up the good work!!
The food and atmosphere was great
But unfortunately the service was very poor as to the very very rude and unfriendly waiter and because of this I will not be recommending this restaurant again
I took an overseas work colleague for a Sunday lunch and he indicated that everything that came out was exceptionally good and that it was the best meal he has had for a very long time.
The Rose was also pretty top notch
Had a good experience wit the venue. Food was lovely. Just had to wait longer fkr our booking and considering it was a late booking already at 930, being seating at 950 was a long wait. Understand how sometimes this can’t be helped sometimes
Food never disappoints- everything on the menu is so full of flavour and tasty! Great ambiance & vibe! The fact that you can book in is a bonus!
One of my favorite restaurants in Melbourne. Service, food and drinks are always on point in addition to always have some amazing tunes!
If you want a quite place to enjoy your meal this is not your place, however, if you don't mind good music and energy this would definitely be your spot.
Love this restaurant. The only downside is you are allocated time - which tends to make it a bit rushed.
Place is cozy, refreshments are so "cool", food is delicious, service is exceptional and prices are reasonable. Highly recommended.
It is worth visiting for the soft shell crab pancake alone. Little mouthfuls of perfection!
The food was delicious with friendly service. We were disappointed to be seated where each time the door was opened it was quite cold on us.
Great service & beautiful food. We arrived 20 minutes prior to our booking and were accommodated. Food came out quickly and the atmosphere was great.
We loved our visit to Lucy Liu!
From the moment we walked down the alleyway, the adventure began. The entrance was cool and the staff were welcoming. We were a little late for our booking, but it was no problem.
The service from our waiter was impeccable. He was helpful and attentive, helping us with our food order and ensuring our water glasses were always topped up.
The food!! ❤️ We ordered prawn dumplings, Peking duck dumpling, pork buns & the beef ribs with randang curry. The food arrived quickly at our table, which we appreciated as we had a concert to attend. The quality of our meals were amazing. The food was fresh, perfectly cooked and tasted absolutely divine.
Thank you to all of the staff at Lucy Liu for a wonderful dining experience! We look forward to returning soon.
Good food. Prompt service. A great spot for fresh Asian tastes.
Great service with reasonable price range of food.
The food is outstanding! So delicious! The service was also incredible! Highly recommend!
The savory and hot food left a bit to be desired. Too many customers being pumped through at certain hours to get a great dining experience.
Second time there and it didn’t disappoint. Tried different food this time but couldn’t help but get the Korean chicken bao again! So good. It was the first time for the other 3 in the party and they loved it. Every dish was packed full of flavour. I’ll definitely go back again.
Excellent service, food was amazing, we ordered the set menu (we got a good selection of food) 1 person was gluten free and staff brought out a separate dish for this person.
I absolutely love this restaurant, however I have to be honest this experience was not the best. Unfortunately I was also with my client from Sydney and wanted to show off one of the best restaurants in Melbourne and while the food and wine was at it's usual amazing standard the service was so poor :(
I had to constantly look to find the waitress and gain her attention to take our order, clear plates and ask if we wanted anything else.
Great food, great service. Awesome venue. Will def be back.
We had an 8.30 dinner early in the week and it was comfortably busy. Of the 4 of us only two were hungry so small plates were a good choice for the other 2. This is a good spot for an interesting Asian menu, and suits appetites of all sizes, with many small plate choices in addition to larger dishes. The ambience is buzzy and busy. Service was good though dishes didn't arrive in the requested order. We will come again.
