About Luckee Restaurant
Toronto, ON M5V 3T4
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.

I have to start by saying I love this restaurant BUT The New Year's Eve menu was a rip off. For $88/person we could have ordered plenty from the regular menu. The lobster dish was awful. The rice came at the end when there was nothing else to eat with it. Who eats rice by itself? The only decent dessert was the waffle. Overall a big disappointment.

Dining out new year's eve can be a nightmare...this one was awesome. They had a set menu plus the regular a la carte. Have been here several times before and it continues to amaze. Creative, delicious Chinese food like you have never had before. Can't recommend it enough.

I'm such a huge fan of Sur Lee's restaurant Bent, that I needed to try his others. I found that I really love Luckee too.
Superb Food and Amazing Waiting Staff!! Great location which makes me love Toronto even more!!
I'm from London U.K. Now living in Canada.
Thank You for being the Best and doing the Best for us to enjoy.

This is a great restaurant on so many levels blending the best of modern restaurants with a creatively nuanced take on the traditional Chinese food we have enjoyed in Toronto for many years. Great for Celiacs with customized versions of many menu items.

Dishes were either soggy or oily (both in flavour and in texture). Have had significantly better dim sum experiences at several other restaurants in Toronto - Ha Gow Dim Sum House being one. The atmosphere here is lovelier than most, but having made reservations, and arriving to find the restaurant largely empty, we were disappointed to be seated at the table in front of the door to the kitchen. Our server was helpful and had a great sense of humour, and the meal arrived quickly. Overall a "m'eh" experience, unfortunately.

Came for dim sum with a friend. Food is excellent, although a bit on the expensive side. The shrimp cheung fun seemed to be a bit chewy and not as crisp as other times I've been. Still worth a visit. Overall great.

Great tasty food! A very Chinese menu with the typical Chinese dim sum and family style sharing dinner menu but with some interesting twists. People should note that if you do not eat pork, most of the tasty dim sum is not available to you (even the seafood ones) because they are fried in pork fat.
From what I had:
Lobster & Asparagus dumpling - really good!
Dungeness crab ravioli - just ok
Rice rolls (I had the veggie one) - REALLY GOOD! Especially since I am not a fan of rice rolls
Turnip cake - pretty good but (I hope this is not blasphemous) i do like the congie queen one better
Steamed bass - pretty good but my husband's is better
Kung pao shrimp - I don't normally like these types of dishes but this was SOOOO GOOD too! Maybe the best thing I had here.
Both soups - just ok but wouldn't order either again.
I didn't get to try most of the stuff I wanted to because my friends don't eat pork and I couldn't eat so much dim sum by myself but I definitely want to go back with my husband and try the rest!
Overall pretty good... I guess I had really high expectations for a Susur restaurant so my ratings reflect that my expectations were not really met at that high a level. May have loved it if I did not have those expectations...

It's not that Luckee is without its merits, but as an avid eater of Chinese cuisine, growing up with weekly Har-gow marathons every Sunday with the fam, the dim sum portion of my meal was disappointing, especially with the sticker price attached. The Har gow was over steamed, skin falling off and sticking to the plate, chicken potstickers were not crispy, for ($8) per serving, that's a lot of screw up on when I can gorge like an emperor at any other dumpling house. The shrimp cheung fun was tasty, with a meaty portion of shrimp along with the perfect crunch of crispy, with only 4 pieces ($8), I was told that the plate had downsized from the past. That, was definitely not worth the value. As for the other items, we had the fried Lotus Root, which was delicious, especially as leftovers ($18). The Luckee duck, Susar Lee's take on the Peking Duck, with juicy duck breast with skin, and traditional sauce sides along with a super savory foie gras parfait, with apple and green onion condiments, that indeed was my favorite ($33?). Other notables were the scallops, and seasonal veggies. The Cantonese fried rice was alright, with dried scallops, bacon edamame, to be honest I'm doing this from memory. The ingredients were fresh, and food was tasty, perhaps some was not well executed, for the price and for Chinese food, it's a little inflated for what you get. Not sad like mall Chinese food (hey, I'd still eat that), just a disappointment like if you're a Chinese dad and your son drops out of med school to be pursue music.

The dim sum was some of the best, most of the mains were great although I was very disappointed in the sticky rice for 24$. The service was very slow however. Would go back but would just stick with the dim sum next time

Ate here last minute while visiting Toronto. WOW. The best and most creative chinese cuisine that I have had in years! The Luckee Duck was absolutely delicious. And the combination appetizer was perfect. Great wine list too. I have recommended it to lots of my friends and will definitely come back here next time I am in Toronto!

We ate at Luckee last night with my son and his wife. My son ordered as he was familiar with the dishes offered. We had some Sauvignon Blanc, French, which was quite good. My preference is still New Zealand. We had 8 plates which we shared. 2 Dim Sum, 2 Seafood, 2 Vegetables, a rice dish and noodles. All were excellent and we finished them all plus a dessert plate.
I go by the restaurant often and the aromas wafting from the kitchen are wonderful. We will go back again.

The best fresh dim sum I have had. Great ambiance, great menu and wine selection. The staff was fun and knowledgeable and great assistance with food selection.
Dinner out with my family and it was a hit. Great downtown location with parking possibility across the street.

Two couple attended last Saturday night. Welcomed enthusiastically by hostess. Bartender came out to take our drink order. Our waiter Kazi, was friendly, helpful and helped to make for a great experience. We worked through Kazi and the chef to create our own dinner plan.
The dishes were fresh and flavourful with a lot of variety.

The food was hit and miss.
Pros: The crab ravoli was quite lovely and so was the Soba salad. The lobster in the won ton noodles was good and quite large. The sesame balls were quite yummy and fresh. The lychee sorbet was quite nice as well.
Cons: The lobster cheung fun was not worth double the price of the shrimp cheung fun. There should really be more lobster if you are charging that price. The lobster won ton has only 2 pieces but should really be 3. Too much noodles for a dish with only 2 dumplings. Noodles was also bland so thankfully for the hot and sour soup that gave it some flavour.
The Luckee duck bowl was ok. The sticker rice wasn't flavorful and too much hoi sin sauce.
Overall, okay but for the price, expected more flavour if the portions are smaller. Would come back for some of the dishes though. Just need to learn what to order and what not to order.
