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.

Interesting night

We went here on Tuesday night and booked a table in the restaurant. We decided to go with the Hawker board but were told we could only get the board in the bar side. A little odd given it was advertised in the restaurant and the place was half empty - oh well - so we moved to the bar.... read more

This would have to be one of my favourite restaurants in Sydney, it's consistent delicious. You can't go past the Sunday $45 set menu including one of Jimmys amazing cocktails. The poached chicken and crab salad is a taste sensation, along with the crispy pork hock and the salt and pepper squid. Always at the top of my list for... More

4 of us had a superb evening. The food was sensational - a positive 'fiesta' going on with the taste buds! All the ingredients were so fresh and were combined in the dishes in the most delectable ways. Always love the tapas-style (aka Hawker bites) ordering as you get the chance to savour so many different dishes - we had... More

This place does really unique, tasty, delectable food. You can never go wrong with their chicken salad. But pretty much anything you'll order will be bomb. Service and ambiance gets great marks too. Worth a visit, or a couple.

We've visited Jimmy Liks a few times and the conclusion is always the same: very nice place and great food to spend an evening out! The restaurant has one big table on one side and other smaller tables on the other side and outside. We sat at the big table every time and although we do not really like huge... More

Oh dear not what we expected from the reviews on trip advisor. We booked an early spot to avoid the crowds, and it looked like a good plan when we arrived and there were plenty of empty tables. However the staff had other ideas. We were taken to one of the room length tables, similar to an old school dining... More

Hi gp86 Thanks for your feedback and I'm sorry you didn't enjoy our restaurant as most people do. We are a very buzzy eclectic 'communal dining' restaurant which may not be your thing. I have always enjoyed the dynamic created by having different people all drinking, dining and often chatting together. With regards your seating option, we were fully booked... More

Such a nice surprise we had for a girl night out for a friend's birthday. We found it really exotic with an array of good music, candle light and relaxation. To start with, we all had cocktails and can not be more satified with unbelievably innovative blend and flavors. Sensational South East Asian fusion menu, with a variety of seafood... More

Nice food and reasonable price. Not a big space so it is little squishy. Not easy to find park nearby We prebook all foods before arrival

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.
