Luke's Kitchen - Sydney
Previously the New York-style warehouse restaurant and wine bar, MOJO by Luke Mangan, 8 Danks Street in Sydney has been transformed into an elegant and modern eatery with a casual, lounge-like feel.
Complete with lush greenery, earthy tones, contemporary furnishings and rustic finishes, Luke’s Kitchen exudes a warm and welcoming atmosphere and offers brunch, lunch and dinner from Wednesday to Sunday.
Luke and the team are passionate about showcasing seasonal ingredients and local Australian produce, including products from Luke’s Providores range made in collaboration with unique Australian suppliers.
5 stars on all aspects. We loved the food/wine/service/location and price. Well done guys!
Second visit but disappointing. The staff were pleasant but the wait between courses on the tasting menu was too long. The second bottle of white wine had to be sent back because of the over powering cork smell once poured into glasses. The meat dish on the is menu was disappointing as the meat was too tough.
Our first visit was a much more pleasant experience and I got the feeling that the restaurant was under manned for the number of people in it. Also we were at the edge of the large space at the back of the restaurant which is not that pleasant due to the overpowering size of it.
Great food and service. The staff were very accommodating the duck toastie is a must!
Great food and exceptional service. We will definitely be back next time we are in Sydney.
The food was great, service fabulous and the space excellent although it did get a little chilly but it was an extremely cold night
Highly recommend! Went after an amazing meal at glass brasserie. Luke’s kitchen did not disappoint! Beautiful restaurant beautiful food! Superb cocktail list!
Food was very high quality and the family had a memorable experience. Served by Luke himself!
Luke's had a good vibe and an extensive drinks list. The food however was mixed: Confit duck truffle toastie was a 10 / 10. We went for the meat cut of the day for 2, which was a slow cooked lamb. Unfortunately the Lamb was more akin to Mutton - very fatty and gamey and very, very average...The server didn't mention the price, so when the receipt came at $120...horrible value for the quality for the food.
Yes most definitely Have already made another booking
Great looking restaurant, id go back again! Food was great and service by our waiter was excellent.. nice tables and wasn't rushed. You can take business clients here as equally a romantic or celebratory dinner. Dress code to match so if your casual your fine or a more dressy look is good too. Thanks guys
Another amazing dinner at Luke’s Kitchen. Food and service outstanding.
Whilst the food was technically well executed, this was ameliorated somewhat by the string cold wind coming in every time the door was open. Perhaps we will return in summer.
It was our first dining experience at Luke's Kitchen and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. The food was incredibly tasty! We cannot wait to return and sample other dishes. Staff were courteous, attentive and service was excellent. Love the music. Not too loud. It was a lovely evening despite the freezing weather. Until next time. Thank you very much!
We went for brunch on Mother’s Day and enjoyed everything about our visit. The staff were great, the service terrific and the food was delicious 😊
We went on a quiet evening, so we got very attentive service in a noise-free environment. The food was also sensational, and I’d recommend this place to anyone on a date or a special occasion.
Luke never disappoints. This is a great place for casual dining or whatever. We had a great night.
I love the shared plates and service is outstanding.
We loved the atmosphere and decor in what looked like an old warehouse. The service was great. The tasting plates were a good portion and the matching wines complemented each course. We will be back and bring our friends.
We only just discovered this place and could not wait to try it. We were not disappointed - the interior is great giving it a good vibe, the food was really good and the staff excellent!
Staff were friendly and relaxed. Food was exceptional. Had the tasting menu with matching wines. The wines were perfectly matched to the courses. First time here and would come back again. Would definitely recommend this place.
Attentive and knowledgeable staff
Great look and atmosphere
The food was fantastic, so tasty. The service was really good too. The only negative was the waiter kept taking away our plates without checking if we were actually finished ... which we weren’t! He did it for both the main meal plus dessert.
Really let down by kitchen over cooking our shared main (rib eye), and having to wait over 30 mins for another one to be cooked
Love my local fave. Stunning food, yet again, too many delicious choices so we had to be selective in ordering for 3, we couldn’t order everything we wanted. Impeccable & attentive service, from Rhys/Reece our waiter and Daniel the manager. Will definitely return very soon.
We went to Luke's Kitchen as a group, straight after a big day of work. We had a variety of sharing plates and the market fish (snapper) and market meat to follow. The food and service were extraordinary - there was not one dish that didn't hit the mark. Thanks for a very memorable night.
Lovely restaurant, great atmosphere. And food is amazing...
First of all , the floor and bar staff that were on that night were absolutely amazing. Thanks boys.
The only thing I didn’t like was , Value for money, where is it ? If Luke was in the kitchen cooking your meal and you could see him in action then I would understand the prices. Zucchini flowers on the menu, sorry, we only have zucchini. King fish , that was disappointing. There was not enough seasoning and the portion size was small compared to the price. 1 whole snapper for 2 and it was really for one. I’m sorry but that’s false advertising.
I came and tried it because someone recommended it to me but I won’t be recommending it to anyone else unless they where just going for drinks. Thanks.
An excellent first experience. Good service and good food! Very accommodating!
The staff were extremely attentive, we were greeted immediately and well looked after during the whole experience. The food was amazing, I would go back in a heartbeat (especially for the duck toastie).
We had the tasting menu which was very good taste wise. However I'm accustomed to being pretty stuffed when having a 6 course meal. The portions here were very light so I was just about satisfied but my husband could have definitely had more. Otherwise pleasant experience
The tasting menu was very well priced, and was great with the matching wines. The staff were friendly, and very helpful. The fitout was lovely, yet not overdone. Very happy here for date night.
The food is exceptional & the staff are on point. The soundtrack is great which is so much fun because you are bopping away to every delicious bite! Love it!
As always, the food was amazing, and the manager and staff very professional yet super friendly and fun. There were a few new items on the menu and we tried them all and ate like kings. Great cocktails served table side, and great selection of wines and after dinner drinks to explore (try the Strega!).
We had the tasting menu with matching wines. Thoroughly enjoyed the food, I left feeling full but not over full. The wine pairings all went beautifully with the food.
Service was fantastic, friendly and attentive.
All in all this is our new favourite place and we will back very soon! Will definitely be taking friends and family when they visit Sydney.
Again a great meal with excellent service though a couple of times the kitchen forgot that I had a dairy allergy. The bottomless brunch is wonderful.
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us a review. We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed the Bottomless Brunch and overall had a great dining experience. We take food allergies very seriously and apologise for the mishap and will ensure this does not happen again. Thank you and we hope to see you again soon. Warm regards, the Luke's Kitchen team.
Been here twice and food and service are excellent.
Hi Jon, we're so glad to hear you loved Luke's Kitchen so much that you came back for more! We appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review and very much look forward to seeing you again soon. Warm regards, the Luke's Kitchen team.
The food and service were both amazing. The restaurant was hosting two large groups and it was a bit understaffed. Fortunately our food and bill came before the groups. Ambiance was a bit odd but the food more than made up for that.
Thank you for taking the time to provide us with a review and your honest feedback, which is most valuable to us so we can improve. We hope you enjoyed your overall dining experience and we hope to see you again soon. Warm regards, the Luke's Kitchen team.
A very memorable evening - not only was service and food excellent but we had the (reportedly rare) pleasure of being greeted by the owner/chef Luke Mangan. He even agreed to prepare the signature dessert, Rocky Road in front of us. Highly recommended.
Hi Robert, we are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your dining experience at Luke's Kitchen. Sounds like you had a very special evening. We look forward to welcoming you back to Luke's Kitchen soon again. Warm regards,
The food at Luke's Kitchen was amazing, delicious, well-presented and memorable. A couple of small issues let it down - we couldn't get a booking until 8.30pm on a Friday night which was no problem but once we arrived, we were rushed to order as the kitchen was closing. But overall - it was a great recommendation from a friend and we really enjoyed our evening.
Enjoyed it, the wait staff were friendly, thought they forgot the extra chilli we reordered. I enjoyed the food and the wine and would definitely come back.
Service was inattentive. There was no attention to detail. Our salad was forgotten and only ordered after we warned that it hadn’t arrived. No attempt to top up our water glasses.
There was a horrible odour when we entered the restaurant. We were told this happens when it rains!
