It’s your home just as much as it is ours and we want you to feel that as soon as you walk through our doors! Luke Mangan and the team are passionate about fresh food, fine wine and a great atmosphere for your wedding day!


Luke’s Australian restaurants range from fine dining to more casual fare and are renowned for his unexpected creations, which highlight his French culinary training and Asian influences, paired with fresh, clean flavours.

For 13 years, Luke owned and operated restaurants in Japan, Singapore and Indonesia under the Salt brand. He sold his remaining share in the business in 2018 to focus on his Australian restaurants and new ‘Luke’s’ ventures, including Luke’s Kitchen, Luke’s Steakhouse and Luke’s Burger Bar to name a few.

He has written five best-selling cookbooks and an autobiography ‘The Making of a Chef’, has his own line of gourmet products and makes regular TV appearances.

Further testament to Luke’s excellence are the requests he has received to cook for former

U.S. President Bill Clinton, Sir Richard Branson, actor Tom Cruise and the Danish Crown Prince Frederik and Princess Mary’s wedding. On Australia Day in 2019, Luke was also awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) for his services to the hospitality industry, tourism and his contributions to charity.

As the co-founder of Australia’s largest hospitality awards program, Appetite for Excellence, and The Inspired Series program, Luke is also extremely passionate about promoting and enabling the development of young up-and-coming chefs, waiters and restaurateurs in Australia.

Having good food, good wine and most importantly a really good time is what Luke Mangan & Company are all about and what we believe every dining experience should entail.



It’s your home just as much as it is ours and we want you to feel that as soon as you walk through our doors. 

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, which are reflected in the contemporary menu designed for sharing with friends.

Dedicated to excellent customer service, let our experienced team take you on a unique culinary journey. 

It’s the perfect spot for a feast with many, or, a romantic meal in one of our cosy corners for two. Take a seat at our window bar with a bar bite and cocktail in hand, or catch up with friends over a glass of premium wine hand selected by our Group Sommelier at our main bar, which boasts an impressive feature wall of award-winning spirits and liqueurs. 

Luke’s Kitchen is just the beginning of the expansion of Luke’s exciting new restaurant concept called Luke’s.

The Luke's Kitchen staff were such a pleasure to work with, and made it so easy and fun to plan our Reception. The Venue looked so stunning on the night; we couldn’t have been happier. So many of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was, and the food was the just incredible. Katarina (Luke's Kitchen's Events Coordinator) went above and beyond to ensure the night was a really wonderful celebration, and we're so grateful for that. The wait and bar staff were also SO considerate, polite and helped the evening run smoothly. We're so glad we chose Luke's Kitchen for such a special night in our lives - we’re so delighted with how everything went.

Luke’s Kitchen from onset was a perfect fit for our wedding requirements and wishes and when it came to our special day the staff and service have more than exceeded our expectations for both our ceremony and reception. We walked away having had a great time and not wanting to change a thing. There is not one thing we could fault Luke’s Kitchen on and how could we when all our guests could not stop talking about the venue, delicious food and constant attentive service. We cannot recommend Luke’s Kitchen enough. Visit the venue and speak to their lovely events staff and you find for yourself that they care very much about making every wedding a special one.
