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.

Pork hock was an awesome twist on the classic sweet and sour pork, and the goat shoulder curry made me want to farm goats. However having one of our entrees 'lost in the mail' and hearing another table receive the complete wrong dish left a foul taste in our mouths. For the price you pay you would expect the waitress...

Having had a great lunch here, (which we would have rated 5), we returned for dinner. The food didn't disappoint, but we were not made to feel at all special. We felt like just another two covers. It was a Friday night so they were very busy. It was very noisy. Probably better for a large group than for a... More

This is one of my fav modern asian restaurants in Sydney. Been to Jimmy's a couple of times over the past few months and have loved it more each time. The dégustation menu is well priced, i'd highly recommend the $49 banquent to best enjoy your time at this lovely restaurant.

We weren't disappointed with a group family lunch visit to Jimmy Liks. It was pleasantly quite over lunch as we enjoyed a spread of fusion delights that covered the communal table. You can't go past the succulent steamed duck and shiitake dumpling and szechuan crispy soft shell crab. Warming our bellies with blue eye cod and coriander dumpling in a... More

The first time I tried Jimmy Liks was 2006. 8 years later and they are still going strong. I have to admit I didn't, and still don't like this communal table concept but that can be easily overlooked. The food is outstanding, the consistency is perfect. The price is spot on. Whilst some newer contemporary Asian restaurants are popping up... More
