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

I really enjoyed the chicken salad. It took a moment to adjust as the chicken was cold but the flavour was really good. I had the beef short ribs for main and they were amazing. They were boneless, soft and had absorbed all that rich sauce and the beans were a nice addition. The noodles were so different too. It was literally a broad rice noodle wrapped around a stuffing in a little packet. The stuffing was like what is in wontons in wonton soup. Dessert was simple and tasty. The sponge roll was like a steamed bun almost. The panna cotta was my favorite as it was sweet and tart at the same time and cleansed the palate. So good. They even gave fortune cookies in a little steamer container at the end. I will definitely be back.

everything was great except we waited a long time for the check , there was a period where we were done and waited for someone to bring the bill, we had to finally look for the waiter and call him to get the check and still after then we waited more.

We went for Summerlicious. The short rib on riice noodle was specatular. It was cooked to perfection and melted in my mouth. The Sea bass was a bit bland for Susur Lee but cooked perfectly. Our waiter was great and we had a great enjoyable night out and a great value with Summerlicious. We also had the Dragon Roar and Sake Sangria Delicious!

We have been waiting to try Luckee and summerlicious was the perfect opportunity. The service was solid and very friendly and the food was outstanding! I had the filet mignon and it was probably one of the best I have ever had! It was perfectly cooked. My wife had the char siu ribs which I tried and were so delicious and tender. Loved this place!

The xiaolong bao lacks flavour from the crab. The soup from the bao was good. Spicy chicken salad was underwhelming and the pairing with the cantaloupe doesn't make sense. The beef ribs were too sweet. Deserts were good. Music was too loud.

Food and Service was AMAZING! My advice is to always get the cheung fun! Was served by Kazi and he was on point from the beginning to the end. We dined in for summerlicious but decided to order from the a la carte menu as well.
If it's your first time at Luckee you HAVE to try a Shrimp or Chicken Cheung Fun or the Luckee Duck. It is one of their best dishes on the menu. They also have a hidden secret menu item called the Soba Noodle Salad. It is 21 fresh organic ingredients in their home made dashi soy sauce. It is like an explosion in your mouth with hints of spice, tangy, and sweet all in one.
Had the McManis Petite Syrah by the bottle to enjoy... Kazi told us it is the best full body red wine for its value. It paired very well with our food. We also had a Dragon's Roar cocktail which was very interesting. Has a spicy element to it for its refreshing taste.
All in all, best experience so far in a chinese restaurant. Would definitely come back for more cheung fun!

My mom and I came to Luckee for a late lunch. We had some dim sum and it was amazing! Our favourite dishes were the shrimp dumplings and the mushroom and golden sand dish. Our waiter was extremely friendly and helpful in recommending which dishes to get. I was extremely impressed with this restaurant and will sure be returning again!

This was my second time going to luckee. The first time was for dinner and I had a great experience. Staff was energetic, food was great. We had a great time. I decided to take my daughter to Luckee for brunch. We made choices based on an explaination that a cart would be coming around with additional choices. After 45 minutes we asked again about the cart. The server said he'd look into it, but didn't really return. We Flagged him down after we got tired of waiting and ordered a few more items off the menu. The cart finally appeared as we were paying the bill. We had been dinning at this point for 1 hour and 20 minutes.
The restaurant was not busy. No one had energy, service was slow. It was like a morgue in there. My daughter was thinking about ordering a cappuccino but at this point I just needed to get out of there. It was depressing.
It will be a while if I return. I would never go back for brunch. From my experience the place comes alive at night.

Service was strange as I had to wave someone down every time like I'm (the customer) being a nuisance. The teapots are always empty and we were repeatedly asked what teas we were having (the leaves are in the pot where they just add water and were not adding more leaves). Proper training of the staff was questionable as one of our servers handled piping hot steamers without equipment and burned their own hand from the steam and sauce from the dishes.
The food was absolutely delicious so the kitchen service was great. Now if the front end service can match up to the food they're serving, then they'd instantly upgrade to 5 stars

As good as the food is, the highlight of the night was the fantastic service. We had a complex set of food preferences, two vegetarians and one person with some food sensitivities and we managed everything. Each dish was better than the one before, yet the 21 ingredient soba may have been the highlight!
Good not great food. Average service. Too loud
Food is good but not great. Service is average, music is way too loud for a restaurant. Drinks are pricey, food prices are not bad. Overall unsatisfactory experience and we tried enough dishes to know that this place is good for a special occasion or to impress clients who want Chinese food but there is better Chinese food for half the price around town. So not worth a repeat visit!
Took my wife and kids on our latest visit to Toronto. We had the chef send out dim sum for the table until all of us were stuffed. That was really the first time my kids have had dim-sum, they're picky eaters and they absolutely loved it. Our waiter was very helpful and attentive. Would definitely recommend and visit again.
Impressed by LUCKEE
I've only been to Lee and Fring's of SuSur Lee's restaurants, and had to cross Luckee off my list.
Definitely a good idea!
The service was amazing, and our server was very thorough with explaining what all the utensils were and when to use them (communal red chopsticks used to transfer the food to your plate). He recommended some really tasty dim-sum dishes and overall, everything was delicious!
I would definitely come back here to eat again!
Out of luck
We had reservations for over a week and were placed at this nowhere table in between the kitchen, bar and doorways which robbed us of our dining intimacy. The food was good, but not worth the price. Service was fast, so efficient the waiter asked us if we had asked for the bill 5 minutes after we received our meal. Overall bleh experience, would not go back.
Delicious Asian Dining
Parking was easy, right under the Met Hotel. You pay $20 on the bill for parking. The food was all delicious. The server was mediocre at best. We did not find her attentive. We went to Second City after dinner, right around the corner. Overall we would return for the food
Amazing food and service!
As always had an amazing meal at Luckee! The servers are so nice and knowledgeable. My favourite thing to do here is just let the servers bring you whatever they want...as long as it includes the Shrimp Cheung Fun! It is soooo good!

Food was okay, expensive. Easily could have gotten better dim sum in Chinatown. Completely regret buying into the hype and going here. The Luckee Duck was pathetic for the price - a single duck breast that was undercooked and under seasoned for $33 was the peak of the disappointment. The dim sum flavours were not complex or unique. We left hungry and disappointed.
