Inspired by the street food of South East Asian, Jimmy Liks, has an extensive menu offering a quick bite of street hawker styled nibbles to our full 8 course "Jimmy's Selection" ($55pp) or 11 course "Street Feast" ($65pp) banquet menus. 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's 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 are encouraged although walk-ins are very welcome. Bookings of up to 60 people are available throughout the week. Jimmy Liks can also be found at several organic food markets throughout the week serving up some great street food.

You can always count on Jimmy Liks

Modern Asian cuisine at it's finest. I have always enjoyed dining at Jimmy Liks. There is a great cocktail and wine list to match the mouthwatering food. Make sure you make a booking so you don't miss out. The tables are set out communal style with a bar alongside for snacks.

Food was pretty good and ambience was nice as well. However the service was extremely slow. 4 entrees came at 15 mins interval and the main only came over an hour later.

Having dined at this place over the last ?8 years....atleast 12 times. With the new owners, changes haven't meant an improvement. Days gone by, it was the restaurant for mod fusion of Thai. Now this food served is still good, but a bit tired, too are some staples gone. The food sizes are smaller and more emphasis on a hawker... More

I will be heading back here soon. Enjoyed everything. Had the prawns wrapped in betel leaf. Divine. Then the pork skewers. So sweet and sticky with a sour dipping sauce. Yum. Then the prawn and lobster dumplings in broth. This was SO flavoursome. Corn fritters that you wrap in betel leaf and then dip in a sweet sauce. Highly recommend.... More

Jimmy Liks has become one of my new all time favourite restaurants in sydney. By far! The food is absolutely phenomenal! Designed to share, the menu showcases some of the very best authentic thai food I have ever tasted! From ithe split curry with roti bread, to the chicken and crab salad, your tastebuds get transported to pure bliss. No... More

I went to Jimmy Licks last friday and had an exceptional experience. Despite being in the middle of the cross, it's sufficiently tucked away to escape the riff raff and have a really good dining experience. The food was awesome, especially the salt and pepper calamari and the dumplings and the bar staff were really fun - they introduced us... More

This is place is a Sydney legend! It is a venue that I have taken my parents, my best mates, my girlfriend, and my 18 year old sister for her birthday. It has a fantastic vibe; classy, yet fun. The food is out of this world great, and the service is always super friendly and knowledgable! Absolutely love this place... More

We went on a Wednesday night and the restaurant was barely full at all, so the ambiance was quiet but still good. The menu has a fantastic range of dishes both in terms of ingredients and sizes, which I liked. Only problem was the service. Although waitresses were friendly, often we waited too long to see them for ordering etc,... More

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.
