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:

Tucked away in Mitchell Street is this lovely Chinese restaurant, great friendly service with sublime food (duck & mushroom was to die for) made this a meal to remember. If your ever in Glasgow make sure you visit this place.

Being asked to pay a 12% surcharge for having 5 people is ridiculous

We've been several times before to the Lychee - without a doubt this was the best food we've had yet, same dish but somehow better! My wife even got Birthday serenaded by Chef Jimmy and our server as they took us both by surprise and after our meal came in with a chocolate fudge cake with candles and sang Happy Birthday!!! Very touching and a complete surprise. Can't thank Jimmy and all the staff enough, an absolutely excellent night. Thank you Thank you Thank you! :-)
