Lychie is a white tablecloth restaurant with a view of the Holdfast Bay. It is a nice setting where you don't feel crammed in with other diners. We had dinner here with another couple and decided on the banquet. I thought the banquet was pretty good value for $45 per head (includes a bottle of wine). We almost didn't go... More

One of the few busy restaurants in this strip at Glenelg. Service was good and the food was excellent. We shared spring rolls (excellent) and shu mi for entree and a seafood dish plus a duck dish for mains. A couple of beers and a champagne topped of with coffee and tea made for a great night. Thanks

Staff attentive upon arrival & efficient to place orders, but forgot our request for water. When reminded, both of the water glasses provided were dirty. Food was honestly great, hot, fresh and tasty. Despite wait staff constantly walking past empty handed, our finished plates remained for 10+min & we were not asked for a second round of drinks......

With all the rave reviews that we read on TripAdvisor about this restaurant we were expecting a superb night. Sadly we were so disappointed. It really spoilt the evening with having to wait nearly 45 mins to be fed. Let alone the drinks took 20 mins. It was a Monday night and only half full. It was a puzzle. We... More

Went with a party of 6 for Christmas get together. Decided to have the 8 course banquet. Every course was well presented and delicious. The table service was amongst the best we have experienced. The quality and amount of food was complimented by all 6 in my party. When having a banquet you get to taste a good variety of... More

18 Dec 15 My mate, who I had not seen for 27 years, booked a table for 6 at 6pm. The plan was to eat inside but the aircon had failed so we ate outside. Service was prompt and very slick, all the food ordered was well presented and hot. We were all very happy with the resturant & staff.... More

Had Peking Duck on one visit, had bones in the slices of duck meat. The presentation is just average. needs to lift its game if it wants a reputation. Their standard chines fair was OK.

I phoned Lychie and spoke to the chef about ordering the hot and sour soup. I am allergic to lemongrass, so I asked if he could cook it without and he said no problem. So I booked a table for 2 and upon ordering I asked for no lemongrass in the soup. When the starters arrived I could instantly smell... More
