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:

Sometimes the service can be a bit slow and you are left waiting for food/drink for a while before anyone asks if you need anything

We genuinely enjoyed our meal, we really felt welcome and appreciated the way in which we could chat with staff and even, for one of us, get a specific meal made that was not on the menu. As for the food, it was really nice, we all commented on the those subtle differences each dish came with that made them stand out from the norm. Pickled salad with starters, crispy not greasy rolls, quality rice with just that extra bit of flavour. All in all we will be back

Food was very good and very quick we were advised they would require the table back after 2 hours but it was a quiet Sunday night and so this did not happen. Ate with another couple of friends and all enjoyed our different meals. Would definitely go back.

Lovely tastey food for lunch and dinner. Constructive Criticisms: Waitress needs to stop moving glasses to make room for food by touching the top of the glasses where you drink from and instead move by the stem. Would be good to have more veg through the dishes. Other than that super tastey meals by welcoming freindly and attentive staff in comfortable contemporary surroundings. Thankyou!
