We finally learned first hand why LA Times food critic Jonathan Gold lists Lukshon as the #4 restaurant of the 101 best in LA. Food quality, taste and presentation. Ambience. Service. This place has got it all. Located in the hip and funky Helms Bakery...More

The food, service and ambiance are good at this restaurant. The problem is it they do not fit together. Lukshon is Asian street hawker food served in more of a fine dining atmosphere. The chefs concentrate on the placement of every sprig of cilantro while...More

Cool, asian inspired modern cuisine restaurant in the artsy part of Culver City. Small plates to share, cool variety of affectionately prepared dishes, best chicken I ever had in my life, friendly service and laid back atmosphere. Very recommendable place.

Always a pleasure to have a meal here in this modern hip Asian fusion restaurant. Food is delicious and best enjoyed as tapas and sharing with friends. Very classy with an open kitchen. Highly recommended.

I don't get the hype. The Hawaiian Butterfish was fantastic, but the rest of the meal was average. Cold sesame noodles felt odd served by itself, and I've had better soft shell crab at almost any Vietnamese restaurant. The food was good but overpriced for...More

This is one of the few restaurants that I became very disappointed after high ratings from the restaurant critics. The decor is nice and parking is fairly simple. The waitstaff was friendly and hardworking. Besides those, there is almost nothing to recommend about this place....More

Food: I can't say enough positive things about the food. We came in expecting good things by reputation and we were blown away. We ordered 10 dishes split between 4 people and there were no weak spots. Particluar highlights were the Tea Leaf salad, which...More
