"Luke Mangan is my go-to dude for information and thoughts on food, trends, places and people in the "must see must know" category.
He has parlayed a strong sense of culinary innovation and a real respect for traditional cooking and sense of place into one of the strongest and most real brands in the modern culinary world, not out of whim, but out of the love for the delicious and fascination with the fun in all of life.
I would be happy to eat at his restaurants every day for a year and then start again."
"He’s an Entrepreneur and you have to be more than just a chef to become a successful chef these days, and you have to be media savvy, good on television.
A lot of the job is promoting yourself and promoting your business and he does that well. But in the end you’re only as good as the product, so you can’t be all fluff and puff, you’ve got to have substance behind you, and he’s got substance."
Sir Richard Branson
"Luke Mangan is the Michael Corleone of Sydney. A colossus.
Don’t go drinking with him. Last time I hung out with him, I crawled home like a whipped dog."
"In our industry, success does not just come from superb culinary skills, which Luke excels in, but in management skills which he has developed over the 20 years that I have known him.
His enterprises are now worldwide and Luke should be an example to all of us on the world stage."
