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:

I feel my experience in lychee was comfortable and enjoyable. The table service was amazing as was the food and almost all staff were approachable, helpful and friendly! I would recommend this restaurant to family and friends and would visit again myself.

Very poor. Had the Hong Kong chicken. Overly sweet. Soup needed seasoning. Black bean was ok

I have dined at the restuarantt on a number of occasions, my most recent visit was my mother's birthday celebaration. I consider the Lychee Oriental to be one of my favourite Cantonese places to dine and have recommended the resutuarant to a number of family, friends and aquaintacies. On Saturday the evening was spoiled for our party when the waitress came to request our table back at 9pm due to another booking. When I advised her I had the table booked for 2 hours, she stated her manager had informed her my booking was for 90 minutes. It was only when I showed her an email confirmation showing my booking was for 2hours from 19:15 to 21:15 did she then back track and apologise stating that she understood the booking was made via 5pm.com which has a 90 minute time limit, As previously stated this put a slight dampner on an otherwise pleasant evening for our party.

This was my second visit, the food was very nice but unfortunately the meal I got wasn’t what ordered. I had ordered king prawn Kung po and got chicken. I didn’t notice as first as I was talking with my partner. The chicken was nice but not what I ordered.
