About Luckee Restaurant
Luckee Restaurant and Bar - the much anticipated "Nouvelle Chinoise" restaurant by culinary superstar and television personality Susur Lee.
Luckee features Chinese cuisine at its most sophisticated, with comforting and recognizable recipes of classic dishes and dim sum for the culinary traditions of Guangzhou, Hunan and Szechuan regions, updated and enhanced by Chef Lee's delectable signature.
The interiors subtly blend accents of imperial red and wall-to-wall panels of dynastic architecture, with a nod to 20th century Chinoiserie.
Luckee Bar, already a favourite of locals and travellers alike, boasts themed as well as classical cocktails, an extensive wine list, and an urban vibe that is one-of-a-kind.

Luckee Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Susur Lee is a celebrity chef (at his nearby restaurant, Lee, the staff will even inform you of that, if you didn’t know it.) Still, the food is a series of excellent creations from an imaginative craftsman. Every dish was visually appealing, flavourful and, to my knowledge, unique. The beef dish is the tenderest of its kind I have ever tasted.
The menu is not cheap, but worth every penny. Go there for a special occasion or when you need to impress.
The staff at the restaurant was excellent. We were a group of 7, and one of us is extremely allergic to onions. Our waitress made sure there would be no issues, and spoke with the chef to make modifications to any dishes that contained onions. Everything tasted absolutely amazing, and the chef was able to modify all but one dish, and for that one dish our waitress made sure to let us know that there were onions, so we could ensure he didn't try that one. Hats off to all the restaurant staff who made sure we had a wonderful evening.
we had a pretty good lunch on Tuesday Nov 20th. The shrimp chung fan was as good as advertised. We also had 2 lunch bowls: the lobster wonton lo mein and the BBQ Beef short rib w rice. It was an interesting tale on some traditional Chinese dishes...we don't love the lobster lo mein but we understand why it was prepared the way it was. We also had a side of the fried rice - really good. The dessert mango pudding was amazing! Our service was really good too. (A male server from Athens, Greece). Very attentive and honest about how he feels for the dishes. Overall a very good dining experience. May come back and try for supper.
Everything is absolutely delicious! It really is a fantastic dining experience.
- Extensive selection from "cautious" (not boring) to exotic. Everything we ordered was delicious.
- Comfortable, vibrant setting
- Offer a great sake selection
- Service is professional but freindly
- Not really a "con" but a tip - We ordered everything at one time and several things came all at once. I'd recommend ordering one or two items and then ordering when those arrive :)
- Plan to park and walk (if you're driving); there is limited parking right at the restaurant and no valet (maybe the SoHo hotel has a service, but not sure). I'd recommend the parking garage on Windsor (south of Wellington) - It's right around the corner and indoor. There is also an outdoor parking lot on Windsor but it fills up in a hurry...
Excellent food. Knowledgeable staff and lovely environment. Great variety of dishes. The duck is fabulous. I do think the waitstaff could be slight less quick to bus a drink or a plate. There is a bit too much emphasis on getting you to order the next thing.
Cool decor / atmosphere but the food was disappointing. We had variety of dim sum plates. None were very good. We also had mooshu duck. It had very little meat (mostly skin) and the plum sauce was very heavy -I'm betting it came from a jar. My friend ate very little. The restaurant was nearly empty when we walked in (Saturday at 6pm) we shouldn't have stayed.
The meal started off poorly as our server, Anwar, came off as very pushy. When I was placing my order and told him one of us would like the express lunch, he abruptly interrupted me and didn't let me finish my order, he said "I wouldn't spend $32 on that lunch if it were me", I didn't know how to respond so I asked him what should I be getting then? He insisted that the express lunch set for one was not worth it and that I should consider just ordering off the menu, which to me seemed as though he wanted me to spend more money. I insisted that one of us wanted the express lunch anyways. On the side I had the abalone dumpling, xiao long bao, shrimp cheung funand taro fries. The taro fries with the truffle aioli was fantastic. The xiao long bao was a real let down. As soon as I picked up the dumpling, it fell apart, which is a sign of the wrapper not being done correctly. I couldn't taste the abalone in the abalone dumpling and that was a let down. The ship cheung fun was outstanding and now Luckee is the only place I would ever touch a cheung fun. The luckee basket that came with the express lunch had four different dumplings inside. All of them tasted like they would at any run of the mill dim sum place. The other two items we got were off the cart, a fried lobster dumpling and a chive black pepper bun, both which were very good. The sesame ball dessert that came with the express lunch was nothing special. When it was time to pay, Anwar stood right behind my dining partner, as if he was watching how much we were going to tip. Usually servers stand off to the side or just walk away, but Anwar made sure to stand right where he could see the interact terminal. It's disappointing that Anwar left such a bad taste in our mouth because the rest of the service staff were outstanding and made us feel very welcomed. In summary, some of the items on the menu need to be looked at or a review on the way they are executed needs to be evaluated.
The food and drinks were OK to good, although for $200 the portions we received were very small indeed......Could be the most expensive restaurant in Toronto compared to others where the portions are much larger and the prices much lower....
There was a loud, obnoxious lout who was yelling at his table behind us for the whole evening such that he totally ruined the evening for us, but the restaurant employees refused to speak with him and I didn't want to make a scene by asking him to be quiet.....
If you are going to a fine dining restaurant you have to know how to behave....if you want to yell and scream over dinner, go to a sports bar for heavens sake!
We had to move to another table, but the gentlemen's screaming was so loud the rest of the meal was ruined.....
Disappointing to say the least.
We booked our reservation to celebrate our Anniversary. We has no exceptions going in and the food was AMAZING!!! Service was great and our waiter took the time to explain the menu to us. As I am a pescatarian he also took the time to ensure all items would be fine for me.
I do have to say the cod was the best we've ever had.
Enjoyed a dinner at Luckee the other night. Was greeted by a lovely hostess and was sitting in a corner booth for more privacy. My waiter Glen had a professional demeanor and helpful with suggesting dishes as their menu had changed slightly. Glad that some of my preferred items were still on the menu. The manager Eric came by and chatted with me a bit making me feel welcome. A nice touch if the manager is around to welcome their patrons even if it's just to say hello, how are you enjoying your meal. The restaurant wasn't too busy at first, but as I left, the place was packed. Would go back for my preferred items (crab ravoli, cheung fun) and hope Glen is still there to serve me as he was genuinely attentive to my needs.
This was our first time here and we were just wowed!!!! There were 4 of us and our waiter recommended the chefs tasting menu. Each dish that came out was better than the next. I don’t think you could go wrong with ordering anything from this menu. We can’t wait to go back!!!!
