"Lukshon is the creation of one of L.A.’s most celebrated chefs, Sang Yoon. It is exquisite and modern takes on authentic South-East Asian Cuisine and its wonderfully diverse ingredients. It is our spicy chicken pops or our Bhutanese red rice with house cured lamb belly. It is the two-day braised short rib or Hawaiian Butterfish.
"Lukshon is a drink and a bowl of noodles at the bar, an intimate dinner under the calm of an LA evening on the patio, a celebration in the elegant and comfortable booths, a night shared with friends and strangers at the communal table, the theatre of a completely open kitchen, the rattle and hum of the service, the teak walls with hand-crafted flower inlays; it is the fusion of style and function."
