    Try the dan dan noodles, khao soi noodles, spicy chicken pops, and even the massive rendition of beef with broccoli. All the flavors will seem familiar, but come presented in a more thoughtful way. Read more

    Food is top notch but can easily rack up the bill with a few dishes. Tapas-style Asian; 3-4 plates serves a table of two nicely. Outdoor patio for nice weather days (and heated pit for cold ones).

    At Lukshon, Chef Sang Yoon dishes out street food-inspired Southeast Asian fare. A curated selection of wines, unique brews, and artisanal cocktails pair well with the boldly flavored small plates. Read more

    The hanger steak and Chinese broccoli was incredible. Curry noodles and crab fried rice are also highly recommended. Great for groups, share everything, they validate valet parking (enter on Venice).

    Love this place! Eggplant was amazing as was the crab rice. Service was terrific and not terribly expensive. Want to go back and try the exotic drinks. Ask for the chicken lollipops! Amazeballs.

    Came for a DineLA lunch - trendy place, and reasonably sized portions. The compressed watermelon salad was an interesting and refreshing starter.

    Grab an outdoor seat! Order the larb sliders (those taro chips are so good) and tea salad. Skip the cheng mai curry, noodles were soggy.

    Amazing food. Chef veganized the black mushroom maitake and chanterelle dish, the yu choy, Thai tea salad, and spicy eggplant. Fresh, mellow, modern atmosphere. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Make sure to choose butterfish. Bitterly taste, sweetness and accent of herb match together and make it a perfect starter.

    Big portions so start on the low side. We ordered the brussels sprouts, market fish and the salad. Not blown away with any of them. Maybe try the rice or noodle dishes which are supposed to be good.

    Everything here is amazing. 3 dishes was an ideal spread between the two of us. Really loved the Mushrooms, Beef and Broccoli, and Black Rice.

    Wow, many dishes are spicy without advertising so. Ask the waitstaff if a dish is spicy to make sure. I love spicy but my husband can't handle it. We can't share some dishes here.

    Spicy chicken pops are to die for! And ask if they're doing the duck special. It's not on the menu but sometimes they offer it and it's delicious!

    Beef and broccoli, share it with your date/friend. One of the best dishes I've ever had. Don't be mislead by the simple name, dish is far from simple.

    The Fujian Cure cocktail was really memorable. I don't think you can go wrong with anything on the menu but the Dan Dan Noodles were my fave

    Amazing wines to pair with the cuisine. Ask for the Diatom White if still available. Its super dry and crisp and not what you think of as a California wine. Try and guess the grape used...

    Chicken Pops and the lamb roti were my favorite. Curry noodles and the Szechuan dumplings were also great!

    Pretty much everything is mediocre at best. My only recommendation is to make sure you come in on the early side, as by 8:30 on a Saturday night they were sold out of half of the big plate dishes:(

    Order the Manila Clams. And when you do, ask for a bowl of steamed rice and pour the clam juice concoction all over it and ENJOY!

    They're dusted with flour and deep-fried twice in peanut oil, then tossed in more sauce and some Sichuan salt. They're sticky and messy and oh-so-addictive. Read more
