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.

“Very tasty - but a tad overpriced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

I feel horrible complaining about this restaurant, as the food, service and atmosphere were great - I just can't help but feel it's a little overpriced. Just a little.
The chicken with betel leaves and duck dumplings for entree were the highlight. And the salmon and pork salad. Worth a visit if you're not after a bargain.

“excellent food, pricey drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

attended recently for a group birthday dinner and found the food to be excellent and delicious, perfect for sharing amongst our group. Servers were attentive and un-obtrusive and the atmosphere was great. Only downside was over-priced cocktails, over- filled with ice cubes!

“Very charming, Amazing Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

Wow. Friendly, Curteous, amazing atmosphere.

A little more on the expensive side but great for a treat to yourself or friends.

Staff were amazingly efficient and friendly.
The food was delicious.

In larger groups be prepared to share dishes as they all come out seperate tho, so if your not sharing your dish could come out by the time everyone else has finished eating.

“spectacular food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

It was one of the best places where we had dinner in Sydney. Nice, not too elegant, but stylish. But the best thing is the food, It was simply delicious! The service as in many cases was slow but friendly. Highly recommended!

“High price, great atmosphere, great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012

I guess in this part of Sydney, a price can only be expected like this for good food. But it IS good food. Salt and pepper tofu= fantastic!
good atmosphere too
