Neighborhood: City East
Description: Inspired by the street food of South East Asian, Jimmy Liks, has an extensive menu offering a quick bite of tapas style street hawker nibbles or a full 7 course Jimmy's Selection banquet menu ($49pp). The cocktail list is a short sharp experience in taste. Holding true to the asian flavours & a dedication to quality, the list is a fresh & innovative example of today's cocktail phenomenon with just a splash of the best of the old school classics. The wine list is fastidiously dedicated to compliment our Asian style of cooking, dominated by young unwooded & well balance whites and lightly wooded spicier reds. From benchmark Australian boutique wines to cult classics from Europe, the Jimmy' wine list is designed to encourage variety. Around three-quarters of the list is available by the glass & carafe to encourages a 'wine bar' experience.Bookings Although walk-ins are very welcome, bookings of up to 60 people are available all week.

Always love it. Punchy flavours for food and cocktails in a very cool atmosphere. Ive enjoyed it for a cozy dinner for 2 as well as in a large group. My high expectations are met every time.

I've never ever had a bad dish at Jimmy Liks. This has to stand for something! It's gotta be the only restaurant in Sydney that never disappoints. No matter what you order - small or big - dumpling or salad - desert or cocktail - Jimmy manages to pull it off. Flavours go oh so well together! I have many... More

You're in Sydney. You want to eat something so delicious you simply have to share it across the table. You're into cocktails. Think big, bold smacking flavours. Lick your lips and your fingers. Jimmy is the man. This is Sydney dining one o one - casual, fun and furious. Can't wait to go back.

What a beautiful ad sensual place for a date. We had a great cocktail and a shared hawker plate. Enjoyed all the fresh delicate flavours. We sat in the lounge area and had a rear eventing. Good warm service. Parking is a pain this part of town though

Went here for my birthday dinner so we were able to order the banquet menu (which I HIGHLY recommend)... It was SOOOO delicious! Definitely among the best Asian food we've ever eaten. The staff are great, the atmosphere is totally buzzing and ideal for a Friday/Saturday night or a party/celebration. Probably not the best for a cosy, romantic meal for... More

This was another Qantas deal and turned out to be the best food we have tried for some time, could not fault the 5 dishes we tried

This was another Qantas offer so we decided to try it. Well what great food, I can only rave about the 4 dishes we had, but the Pad Thai prawn was a bit dry. But all in all would come back again and pay full price.

The menu here is innovative. The cocktails great - as is the wine - and the atmosphere is lovely. Service also good and not invasive. Just a pity it was a bit quiet in a Tuesday as the long tables felt a bit lonely!

Hi HT1359 Thanks for the review, we really appreciate it. You'll have to come back another time to experience what's normally a really buzzy atmosphere.. a Tuesday after a long weekend is always a bit quiet. Hope to see you here again soon Cheers More

Nestled in the back of the Cross, you are never quit sure if you are going to get beaten by a passing drunk or some lengthy conversation with a traveler whilst sitting outside, however putting that aside, great flavors, clingy staff, and slightly over priced food, but it is brilliant
