Description: Inspired by the street food of South East Asian, Jimmy Liks, has an extensive menu offering a quick bite of street hawker nibbles or a full 7 course Jimmy's Selection banquet menu ($50pp). 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.

Now I'd love to be one of those people who find the time to review everywhere I go but that's just not my life, but this time I felt I had to. We've been to Jimmy Liks before (and reviewed it ) a year or so ago and loved it, so we were pretty happy to be going back for... More

We attended Jimmy Liks on a Sunday evening and had no issue getting a table. They also use Dimmi so you can book online. We had the Sunday special banquet which includes a cocktail, desert and seven courses for $45 it was incredible. The good was amazing such great flavour combinations and ever course was a hit.

Hi Triand Thank you for the review, I'm really glad you loved the food etc. My apologies for the service that night we were unexpected very busy and my staff, although incredibly hard working, did struggle to cope. I raced in to help after a quick text from one of the girls but things were fairly crazy by the time... More

If you prefer dishes that combine texture, taste over spiciness, then this is the place for you. The expert blending of experience and adventure shines though in every dish. You would be hard pressed not to come away completely satisfied. the long tables and the communal atmosphere, combined with great cocktails and super wine list just add to the experience,... More

What a fantastic meal! You can't pick a dish here you won't like. We sat outside & watched the colourful local nightlife passing by, had some super tasty cocktails & were looked after really well by Justin & all the staff. Will definitely make sure I make time to come back here next time I am in Sydney. The betal... More

This place gets better every time i go. It's dark and sexy. The staff are always really friendly (which can be a breath of fresh air in this town). All the drinks are great; lots of wine by the glass and loads of killer cocktails [ my favourite: oriental mule ] but all that aside the food is where the... More

Went here with a group of 8 male friends for my birthday. We had the $50 banquet which was more than adequate. The food is Vietnamese - the pork was a highlight. Surcharge of 10% for groups of 8 or more. The highlight was the cocktails and wine, I can say that it was better than what you would find... More
