Chef Sang Yoon brings modern Southeast Asian cuisine to LA. Cozy but sensual, Lukshon is the ideal location for lunch, dinner, or grabbing a drink with friends. It also helps that sparkling water and dessert is complimentary. A departure from his burgers and beer hot spot, Father’s Office, Sang Yoon is blending the qualities of coolness and sophistication at Lukshon.

Foursquare Tips

  • Pan-Asian perfected in a hundred little ways, including the precise acidity of the sticky Chinese pork ribs, the aromatics in the reinvented Singapore Sling and the deconstructed shrimp toast.
  • Featured in LA Weekly's "L.A.'s Best Cocktails: Our 55 favorites and where to find them." (Click 'More Info')
  • The their cocktail/booze program here's got rare, Asia-imported spirits and unique mixed drinks like the vodka/ sriracha/ Thai basil/ kecap manis/ prawn salt "Shrimp Cocktail".
  • 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!
  • Nice decor, delicious dishes, super service, complimentary sparkling and still water, complimentary desserts for the table! The no-substitutions policy was not an issue at all.
  • Chicken pops.
  • 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...
  • B.Y.O. Birthday Candles
  • Order everything off the menu if you are with AR!
  • Prince Edward Island mussels, garlic pork belly, Dandan noodles & heirloom black rice are among the dishes were looking forward to, though the squid stuffed with Chiang Mai pork sausage is also good.
  • 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.
  • 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).
  • Black rice and dumplings were among the favorites, but everything was delicious.
  • Perfect for a nice relaxing lunch.
  • Great Brussel Sprouts!
  • Loved the spicy chicken pops! Singapore Sling is not too sweet, not too boozy perfectly refreshing.
  • Make sure to choose butterfish. Bitterly taste, sweetness and accent of herb match together and make it a perfect starter.
  • 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.
  • Tried the butterfish, black rice, chicken pops, pork ribs...no disasters, but no standouts.
  • Southeast Asian eatery Lukshon mixes up a Hot & Sour Gimlet with Monopolowa Vodka, dragon chile, lime, Thai basil and kinh gioi (a Vietnamese herb).
