Lychee review
9.5/10
The first thing you need to know is that I’m a true Asian-food lover. I’ve arrived in Glasgow a few weeks ago and I’ve already tried many different Asian restaurants in town. I’m always very curious to discover new ones so I’ve decided to head to Lychee Oriental. Down a back alley in the city centre, Lychee Oriental is a Chinese restaurant that serves all kinds of authentic food. It has received many awards during the past few years and it’s said to be one of Glasgow’s most iconic spots. So here was my experience:

Service overall was fine but staff seemed rushed and could have a warmer outlook

Only criticism I would have is that I found the staff a bit rude. Food was great, appears a bit expensive but worth the money.

Remarkably busy for a Monday night. Drinks were a little slow to arrive, but the food was excellent when it came. First time there but we'll be back!

I was recommended this restaurant by my boss (Tony) on a recent work related trip to the great city of Glasgow and it didn't fail to impress. Immacultely laid out setting and the food was amazing. I had starter, nibbles and a main which was of the highest quality. I didn't venture for a dessert because I didn't want the taste sensation in my mouth to ever dissappear. I would absolutely recommend Lychee to anyone visiting the city if you love Oriental food. I was just £30 for my food and a pint which was fantastic quality for what was served. I went in at 19:00 on a Monday so it wasn't too busy. Rob Stamp

I’m a regular but haven’t been since before the Summer. The Lychee always delivers great food, great atmosphere, great service and a decent price point for Glasgow. Was nice to see Jimmy again as well. And the new decor is really nice.

Food is amazing and the staff very profesional. The atmosfere is great. Es mi restaurante chino preferido. La calidad de la comida es muy buena y autentica. Los camareros son muy profesional y siempre con una sonrisa. El ambiente del local es genial y una decoracion moderna y oriental. La experiencia es muy buena, te lo recomiendo.

We were big fans of the Ho Wong and when we heard the Head Chef from the Ho Wong had moved to Lychee Oriental we just had to dine there. Sadly the food was not to Ho Wong standard. Nor was the general layout of the restaurant. No tablecloths.. no hot dish warmers.. no hot plates... paper napkins even for a la carte. Really really disappointed.

Went with a few friends for my birthday dinner. The food was brilliant, however, the waitress who served us seemed unhappy with our order and was quite unfriendly for the rest of the dinner.

Service was very rushed at the start of the meal - waitress had her pad and pen back ion her pocket three times whilst we were still ordering food and then very difficult to get the attention of waitresses towards the end so we were left with plates sitting on the tables for a long time before removing and very slow for getting the bill. Food was nice but overall experience wasn't what I was expecting and doesn't match the description of the service on the web page

We had dinner at Lychee Oriental before a night at the theatre. It was our first visit, and definitely won’t be our last. We ordered from the set menu and there was plenty to choose from. The food was delicious! Service was friendly and fast. Staff couldn’t have been more helpful. Looking forward to a return visit!!
