Lychee Oriental (Glasgow) 2022 : Review

Todays Visit

It had been ages since I have visited here, and today I was going to the cinema with a friend and suggested we eat here.

Anytime I get asked what the best Chinese restaurant in Glasgow is, here is always the one that instantly comes to mind.

The Food

Crispy Duck Rolls £6.50

Apologies for the poor photos, my phone isn’t good in darker light but you should get a good idea of what they are like.

If I have ordered these it was many moons ago, and I felt like trying something different and this jumped out at me.

On arrival, these looked very nice and sealed very good.

I tried it on its own and the flavour of the duck was very nice, then I tried it with the dip and wow this transported it to another level.

I was a little disappointed that I had finished it but, I will be getting this dish again!!

Highly recommended if you’re a duck fan.

Crispy Shredded Sweet n Chilli Chicken £14.50 + Egg Fried Rice £3.50

I know that Jimmy would probably laugh at me tonight, as the main dish is what I always order….but it’s just so good!

Yes I know I had this MANY times in the past, but it’s my favourite dish when I am here.

The flavours and the presentation are all just so good.

The chicken is always very tender, the flavour has a great mix of sweet and sour and combined with the rice or on its own, it tastes really good.

Another highly recommended dish!

Visit Overall

Just like all my previous visits, tonight’s visit was very good.

I was very happy to see how busy it was, but Lychee has always been busy and this is a good sign.

Jimmy even popped out to see me which was a really nice surprise as it had been a while since we last met 🙂

This place is among my top restaurants to visit, if you haven’t checked it out make sure you book and I promise you that you won’t be disappointed.

Salt & Chilli Oriental (West End, Glasgow) : Review

Salt & Chilli Oriental is from award-winning TV and Lychee Oriental chef Jimmy Lee, and its aim is to serve the best Cantonese street food.

The Takeaway

I have known Jimmy Lee for many years now, as I used to frequent his Glasgow restaurant Lychee Oriental which I highly recommend you check out as its always amazing food and the staff are lovely.

Jimmy sent me a wee message to come and visit Salt and Chilli for a takeaway and I couldn’t wait to try the food as I am sure its just as amazing as the food from Lychee Oriental.

The Goodies

The smell from these were amazing and I couldn’t wait to open them and dig right in.

Crispy Duck Rolls £n/a (normally £5.50)
Handmade 24hr Marinated Duck

Firstly as I said earlier in this post, the smells were amazing and mega mouth-watering.

I first tried one on its own with no dip, so I could taste the full flavour. WOW it was a perfect bite, had a nice little crunch, and then the flavour of the duck explodes in your mouth it was so good.

Now time to try with the dip, oh wow this adds another dimension to the flavour and for me this was the winning combo for me so so so good.

I could have easily had much much more of this, but I had the salt and chilli box to follow 🙂

Salt & Chilli Box (Inc Dip and Side) : Special £n/a (normally £11)
Wings | Rib | Chicken & Fries

As soon as I opened this box the smell hit me mmmmm everything looked and smelled good….now time to taste.

I started with the chips, firstly thin chips are always a win for me and these were very nice and had a good kick to them.

Next was the ribs, these had a really nice flavour and the meat slide right off the bone.

Lastly was the wings, again really nice flavour and perfectly cooked.

Overall :

Firstly a big thank you to Jimmy Lee and the guys at Salt and Chilli Oriental for tonight’s treat.

Everything was cooked perfectly and packed with great flavours.

I have no hesitation recommending Salt and Chilli Oriental to you, as I loved everything I had tonight and it was very very tasty!!

I will also be adding Salt and Chilli Oriental to my Top Spots page.
