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
This was my ninth or tenth time at Luckee and I have to say that I was disappointed. There have been some changes to the menu and not for the better. Worse still was the waiter who really didn't seem knowledgeable enough for such a great restaurant. I lamented that a dish had been removed from the menu and the waiter assured me it could still be made. Instead he provided a dish that not only wasn't the same, it was decidedly mediocre.
We ordered several dishes. We ordered the following: Luckee Dim Sum Basket, Luckee Cheung Fun Shrimp, Sauteed Scallops with Cashews, Luckee Duck, Char Siu Beef Ribs and Seasonal Chinese Vegetable with King Oyster Mushrooms. All the dishes were very good and we enjoyed them. My husband did not feel they were complete dishes as they did not come with rice (Additional $22) or noodles (Additional $24). A bit pricey on top off your entree.
We also had Mango Pudding, the Sponge Cake with Nutella and Fried Sesame Balls with Custard for dessert. (Our bill was almost $200 and it felt more like lunch than dinner ).
*I especially like the Luckee Duck. Wonderful combination of flavors.
Beautiful restaurant, very relaxing, wonderful and attentive staff.
This was our 3rd trip to Luckee and we will go back another time or 2 b4 we head back to Florida. It's great dim sum plus the entrees are fabulous. The wine list is expensive but good and certainly compliments the menu. Sussur Lee has a wonderful place in Luckee! Also try his fine dining restaurant LEE with n King St. words can't describe it , it's so good. Go to utube and see him in action.
The service was great, and the ambience is very themed, however a different vibe than the other Susur Lee restaurants. Dim sum and Cheung Fun was amazing, and would recommend only getting an assortment of these dishes when you go. All other dishes are very similar to other Chinese restaurants and not worth it. The cocktails were also very low quality and wouldn't recommend. I would go back, but for a lowkey lunch or dinner dim sum only.
I'm an Italian chef so not an expert in the field but the food was very flavourful and the service was extremely attentive (almost too much).
The only problems I had was i ordered the duck and there was very little meat. maybe 2 ounces and the rest was skin(which was extremely good) Im just not sure that's how it's suppose to be served. Especially based off online photos of other peoples.
Also ordered the shrimp fried rice and it had 3 pieces of shrimp. I understand food cost but 23$ for 3 shrimp and rice. A bit of a reach
crap dumpling was very nice to try so many unique dishes I have no idea how to make
Went Luckee on the recommendation of a friend who was local. I had heard that there were excellent Chinese restaurants in Toronto. Well Luckee did not disappoint. Although it is inside of a hotel, I felt that the food, service, cocktails were all in point. This is a more refined dim sum/ Chinese food experience. Servers knew the menu well were able to make recommendations, and were on top of their game. I highly recommend Luckee for an elevated Chinese dining experience.
We thought we were finished with Summerlicious for this summer until I took one last look at the restaurants and suggested Luckee to my wife. Glad I did. We gave ourselves plenty of time to get there by subway and ended up at the Queen station by 11:00 am – a bit early for our 11:30 reservation. So we walked along Queen to University, south to King, west to John, south to Wellington, and west to Luckee – “sight-seeing” along the way. We arrived exactly at 11:30 and were seated immediately at a table for two, right beside a couple enjoying dim sum. Under high ceilings and between interesting concrete blocks less than half the tables were occupied but there was a steady stream of people entering. We ordered a pot of tea (Luckee blend, $6 a pot) while we scanned the Summerlicious menu. I could have filled-up on the hot & sour soup which was very good, as were the crispy shrimp & lobster wontons - although they were more a smallish spring roll. The baked chicken was tender, moist and delicious but I really liked the sticky rice under it. Although described as the typical dim sum “lotus leaf sticky rice,” which usually comes as sticky rice with stuffing wrapped in a lotus leaf, this ditched the lotus leaf and mixed the stuffing with the rice. The cod was cooked perfectly with a tasty soya glaze. My wife found the rice a bit dry. The dessert trio was the best dessert we’ve had at Summerlicious this year. In fact, each of the other restaurants we’ve eaten at this year had a weak appetizer or dessert but Luckee had three balanced courses. Prompt service, excellent food, good value.
This relatively new restaurant is located next to the Soho Hotel on Wellington Street, and is owned by the celebrity chef Susur Lee. We went there to try out their "Summerlicious" menu and were extremely happy with everything to do with the experience. The decor was upbeat, and the service was knowledgeable, friendly, efficient and effective - never intruding and always helpful, as every staff member could explain the ingredients and the preparation methods for each dish. The Nouveau Asian-French Fusion menu was exquisitely prepared and presented, arriving quickly and tasting wonderful. Cocktails were creative and expertly prepared. Local ingredients were used where possible. The cost was very reasonable for this level of quality, even for the regular menu. Bravo, "Luckee" -we'll be back to try your Dim Sum menu!
Very disappointing. After several attempts to get reservations we finally got a reservation and it was clear why. They don't bother to tell customers (on the phone or on the website) that during summerlicious there is a VERY limited menu. The food we did get was ok, not up to our expectations for sure. For $50/person Chinese food I expected better than ok.
The service was excellent. There are so many staff supporting each other that diners never feel neglected. Glen was our primary server and was very knowledgeable about the menu and Chef Lee. The food was delicious with very interesting and unique preparations.
My only complaint is that information on the website was not accurate or up to date. There was no mention that the restaurant was participating in Summerlicious and because of this the menu was significantly altered and most items were not available. This was very disappointing for two reasons. Firstly, I had picked out a few things I wanted to try and none of them were being served. Secondly, had we known about Summerlicious we would have checked out the menu ahead of time on the official site and wouldn't have been disappointed upon arrival.
I have been a big fan of Chef Susur Lee for a long time and was thrilled to finally get to eat at Luckee! When you expect great things you can sometime be let down--that did not happen. I have had duck all over the world and the Luckee duck was the best one ever! We also had the Luckee basket and the chicken pot stickers. Every bite amazing. The depth of flavors very impressive. So it it great when an experience lives up to your expectations! Also the service was very good. There are many choices in Toronto you should not miss Luckee.
Very unprofessional service manual. It seemed asian oriented service mind. Whatever you ask something for courtesy, they will come back with "just no", even no other option, taking an easy route, because the the asian kitchen wouldn't like to accept extra work. I could see that, as I am working in this industry too. I couldn't have much salt because of my medical condition. It is not demanding at all asking steamed rice and stir fried vegetables at a chinese restsurant. It was even at 5pm, tables didn't even fill up. Don't even understand why they trying to keep the kitchen open eventhough it is messy and disorganized.
As always with Susur Lee the food is fantastic. Best Hot and Sour Soup I have ever had and the whole meal from beginning to end was excellent. Staff were pleasant and attentive. Only real quibble is that the food came on very quickly and things felt a bit rushed. The Mellow Manhattan was a tasty, smooth take on the Manhattan.
I had the pre-fixe which consisted of a crispy cod wrap (cod inside a spring roll), "melt in your mouth" beef short rib and a trio of desserts (mango sorbet, seasame donut and chocolate roll with raspberry coulis). Very delicious, just enough food, very good presentation. Did I mention very delicious? Just in case I didn't, it was very delicious.
My friends and I went for Summerlicous. The food was amazing, so tasty. The short ribs fell apart with chopsticks, and the dessert trio was a great combination. I had wanted to go to this restaurant for a long time, and now I am so happy I was able to experience it.
Went to Luckee restaurant for a Summerlicious Lunch. Being a foodie and watching Susur Lee on television was the motivation to dine at one of his elite restaurants in the beautiful Toronto Soho Hotel. Summerlicious would give me the opportunity to enjoy a meal at a more reasonable rate. The service, ambience and overall presentation of the food was top notch. Even though I enjoyed the lunch of crispy shrimp wantons, baked chicken and a lovely dessert trio, somehow I left underwhelmed. Lunch for two with one beverage each was $90.00.
