Was expecting a culinary bonanza given the hype I've heard, but was thoroughly disappointed with mediocre dishes and poor service. Only saving grace was a nicely cooked piece of monkfish in an interesting hotpot. Try harder please.

Have visited the Lychee on numirous occasions as its 1 of my favourite asian restaurants. Fantastic Katsu chicken curry and the lunch menu offers excellent value 2 courses for just under £11.

Having looked at the reviews we decided to visit this Restaurant when we visited Glasgow on Monday. It started well when we were given a lovely table by a very nice server. I ordered Chinese tea for two, a bottle of Pinot Grigio and a Chinese beer. All very nice, tea came in Chinese mugs with lids - which was... More

Went on a Monday night and the restaurant was beginning to get busy even at 6 p.m. We had a lovely meal and the dimsum were worth waiting for (made totally to order). I had a sizzler steak and prawns and my husband had a claypot duck dish. Both were gorgeous. Lovely restaurant that I will definitely visit again.

We spent a lovely hour or so in Lychee Oriental. Decor lovely. Booths are best for privacy. We were initially going to be seated at a pillar at small table for two, but asked to be seated at a 4 as it wasn't busy. This was no problem. Hostess very nice. Happy to see us which is refreshing compared to... More
