Lunch Time Menu : 2 Course £11.99

Now this is very different for me, me visiting Lychee Oriental for lunch!

On entering I saw the changes inside, and wow looks very nice! I was very impressed it still has the same feel and atmosphere but style much more cosy and ambient.

The Food

Now it was time to see what food I wanted, and yes! I did pick something other than the same chicken dish.

Starter

Spare Ribs with BBQ Sauce

Spare Ribs with BBQ Sauce

I have not had spare ribs in a very long time, so I was really looking forward to this.

When it arrived the smell was very good, and got my mouth watering.

WOW the ribs were perfectly cooked as the meat slide off the bone, and the flavour was amazing!! I now have found my favourite spare ribs!

Main Course :

Again there were so many options I wanted to try, but I opted for this.

Crispy Lemon Chicken & Fried Rice

Crispy Lemon Chicken & Fried Rice

I have had this dish before, and remember I liked it but wanted to try it again as its been a while.

Guys this was really good, the chicken was tender, the batter was just crispy and the lemon flavour was perfect.

I am not just saying this but WOW a perfect dish.

Visit Overall :

I always love coming back to Lychee Oriental, as its my favourite Chinese restaurant in Glasgow. The staff, service and food are always perfect.

Today I had a very good lunch, and for the price the portion sizes were just the same as what you would normally be served.

I highly recommend you visit here at lunch or in the evening, you will not be disappointed!

Foreplay Crazy Golf (Glasgow) : Review

V: 29th September 2019


I am not really Mr sports in any way, I have done Karate and Tennis in the past and been to a few Ice Hockey games and that’s really it for me.

I have never really had any interest in golf, or even crazy golf but I got a wee invite to come along to Foreplay Crazy Golf and see what it was like.

To be honest I really didn’t know what to expect, but was that a good thing? well keep reading.

First Impressions :

On entering I had a look about, and what I saw looked very interesting.

The guys at the desk welcomed me and explained what would be happening today.

I would be getting one round on one course, and one round on the second course.

The guy who was giving us the golf clubs and balls was very funny and informative at the same time, keep a watch out for this guy he will defo put a smile on your face.

Course One :

Well now this is where it got interesting, I have never held a club or swung a club so I didn’t know what to expect from my game today….lets see what happens.

My girlfriend and I went through this course, sometimes needing more than a few attempts at getting it in the hole but we did manage in the end.

I won this round woohoo

Course Two :

This one looked a lot harder, so I was very excited to start.

Yip, this one was much harder and did require both of us to have a lot more attempts on some, but with the practice from course one some were ok and didnt need as many as we both expected.

This was a very fun course, and I would like to say I won again but nope my girlfriend won this one.

Food & Drink:

There is a bar here and also a food area.

The bar serves alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks, and from a board that was on display looked like they did very nice cocktails (unfortunately I was driving so couldn’t have one).

The food are was by The Prague Shack and the food displayed on the menu sounded very good. I had to try the burger here, as I love my burgers.

Beef Burger £7 (today £3.50)

This was a really tasty burger, and one I would recommend as I really enjoyed it.

Cost wise, today for £3.50 (I got it half price) it was very good value…normal price at £7 hmmm a little costly but they have rent to pay etc so its just a hmmm for cost.

  • Taste : 5
  • Presentation : 4
  • Value for Money : 3 (just due to the cost but a very nice burger)

Overall :

WOW ok! I was very surprised how much fun I had today, I really didnt expect to enjoy it as much and so much I want to return with some friends.

This was a fun filled little day out, and its fun for all the family.

The little Glasgow touches on the courses were very cool, and I will come back and have another game or two.

As soon as it arrived my mouth started to water, it looked good, it smelled good and now to taste it.

MMMMMMM this was amazing!!! just as good as I remembered and I enjoyed every single mouthful.

The chips were nice and had the perfect amount of salt but the burger was the clear winner here.
