    One of Melbourne's best Asian restaurants. The crispy fried eggplant is a must. Also the barramundi. Desserts divine. Small but good wine list.

    About the 5th time I’ve been here. Great for social and business dinners and excellent for date-night. Originally came for the name (a lyric in a song which gained my interest) but returned for the food and atmosphere.

    We didn't expect the food is this good and full of surprise. The fried rice has unconventional taxture, extremely delicious. The most impressive dish to us is actually the roast duck, juicy and tender, best duck I had ever. Love this restaurant and certainly will be back again.

    Beautiful food and the staff were very accommodating with our dietary restrictions . They offer some dishes in half portions which is helpful when dining as a couple. Can't wait to visit again.

    Had heard good things about this restaurant, but I was disappointed. We ordered the cucumber and black fungus starter, the signature roast duck, the cumin lamb, and the LHF fried rice. While they were all sufficiently tasty, none of them stood out in any way. You can get similar quality or better in any other restaurant in Chinatown, so not sure what the hype was.

    A wonderful part of the Melbourne culinary scene. Knowledgeable and friendly staff and great "typically Melbourne" location and fit out. Food was great, very flavourful. Price is at the higher end.

About the restaurant

It is thought that in the late 1800s, one in every three Australian cooks was of Chinese descent. Try naming a rural town that doesn’t have a Chinese restaurant… can you? Lee Ho Fook takes that long entrenched tradition of Chinese cuisine in Australia and thrusts it into the modern era with creative dishes like Chong Qing style chicken crackling or ‘Typhoon Shelter style tofu’.

The name, Lee Ho Fook, means ‘good fortune for your mouth’ and it won’t take you long to figure out why. With a personal touch to each meal, the restaurant prides itself on being ‘new style Chinese’. Another thing to be proud of is the Good Food Guide hat, which it has now held for several years.

Take a stroll down this Melbourne laneway and let Victor Liong and his team show you some new ways with your favourite Chinese food.
