Just disappointed that I didn’t get to try the roast duck my friend raved about. Didn’t know I had to prebook it ahead of time Other than that, it’s an interesting contemporary Chinese cuisine
Great place never disappoints we love coming back every time.
Fabulous food really flavoursome dishes. Would highly recommend eating here
Great service, friendly staffs, and amazing food! Love the ambience too!
Always fabulous food and service with lots of delicious vegetarian options. Lee Ho Fook is consistently excellent.
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.
Best Chinese I have had for a longtime
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.
Really nice modern Chinese
Some of the best modern Chinese food in Australia
Great vibe and pretty cool, a good allrounder.
Good casual food. Very tasty
Food and service is always fantastic at Lee Ho Fook. I would definitely go back. Best eggplant in Melbourne!
Can’t beat LeeHoFuk for a great all round dining experience.
I love Lee Ho Fook for a date night or a long work lunch. The food is delicious, service fantastic and great wine and cocktails selection. The express noodle lunch is also excellent value. Highly recommend
The Food and Service were fantastic and staff is very knowledgeable. The Eggplant dish was especially tasty, but it is a little on the expensive side.
Food and service was spectacular. We had a table of 6 and had the banquet menu. We were very happy with the food and friendly staff. My only criticism is that there were not adequate portions provided. As a table of 6 we were mainly given 10 servings of each course, meaning some people only got 1 serving and others had two, or we had to try and cut portions in half. Given we were paying per person, I would have thought there would have been equal portions for all guests. When I asked the staff I was told that’s just how they do it. I wondered how many servings we would have been given if there were 5 of us or if it would have been the same? We left feeling satisfied but given the price I would have expected better.
Loved the food and atmosphere here. Will definitely go back
Dan dan noodles were very good, high quality food and drinks
11-15 Duckboard Pl, 3000, Melbourne, Australia
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.
