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.

Amazing food and drinks!

I can't stop raving about this place - the drinks and the food were so good! There were really good vegetarian options, and the meat eaters were raving as well.

We dined mid week and chose a set menu. The food was great, the service was prompt and the room was brilliant. Will come back.

Came with a friend for drinks and dinner. We had some amazing cocktails and sat at the bar enjoying several dishes made for sharing. It's a great relaxing and fun atmosphere!

We had my sisters hens do here on the weekend and it couldn't have been a better occasion! We started in the afternoon with a cocktail lesson which was hand ons and so much fun! We also enjoyed some street bites which were just delicious. We had the bar to ourselves and it was such a great set up. After... More

Quality of food was abysmal! We had the banquet! In some cases the food did not taste fresh such as the soft shelled crabs. Accompanying sauces were ill prepared and flavours were overpowering. The poor food was matched by the quality of the service which was lacking. One of the worst meals we can remember in a long, long time!... More

Really liked the atmosphere and decoration in the place, dimly lit red and orange hues and great music, so as restaurants go this is one of the more fun places I've been to Sydney. We decided to go here on a Sunday evening unaware of the exceptional $45 deal which was 7 tasting courses and a cocktail. We enjoyed everything,... More

Seats nestle closely at long tables in this dimly lit restaurant that feels more like a classy bar. The menu focusses on sometimes unusual combinations of Asian street food variations, with a focus on finger food and sharing. The prices are in no way cheap, and the portions aren't generous, but the dish I had (seafood summer rolls) was delicious,... More

It was our first time at Jimmy Liks at a recent stay in Sydney. The restaurant had been recommended to us by a friend. We booked a separate table on our own. Food was excellent and the presentation was superb with the time between coarse`s spaced nicely. We shared all of our dishes and both made similar comments They had... More

I had visited Jimmy Liks a couple of years ago and knew the food was pretty good.
