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.

FoodHUB App Aroma Chinese Takeaway (Cambuslang, Glasgow) : Review

GIFTED


The guys over at FoodHub asked if I would like another nice wee takeaway and to do a review.

If you dont know this is the second time I have worked with Foodhub and you can read my first review HERE

This time I was in Cambuslang rather than the West End of Glasgow, so I got to try one from this area.

Looking Around The App

The App and takeaway

I got a discount code from FoodHub, and now it was time to decide where and what to order….this was a hard decision.

I ended ordering from a Chinese restaurant called Aroma Hut Chinese Takeaway, I have never ordered from here but the menu looked good.

Just like the last time using the app was mega simple, it was really easy to use and navigate.

The food

Chicken Maryland

This was ordered as my parents love this, I tried a little of each item and everything was very nice and very fresh.

My parents said it was one of the best they had tasted, and it was very fresh.

Crispy Shredded Chicken with Thai Sweet Chilli Sauce⠀

This one was for me, this is a big fav of mine so I thought lets see how here does it and compare.

Firstly the egg fried rice was cooked perfect and had a great taste.

The Crispy Shredded chicken was REALLY GOOD!!!! and now in my top 2 for takeaways! the flavour was amazing, and it was so good I have ordered this again since this first order.

Kind prawn with green pepper in black bean sauce⠀⠀

This is one of my dads favs, so I got to try a little.

Again the egg fried rice was really good, so now on to the black bean part

Wow this had a really good flavour, and combined with the prawn and rice it was really nice…This is a dish I would order when I felt like a change.

Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the app, and the food.

Just like the previous time I used FoodHub the whole process was easy, simple and no learning curve needed. The other part was I liked is that Foodhub doesn’t take commission, which means it’s a better deal for the takeaway and for us the consumers, as Foodhub is on average 15% cheaper than the rest!

The food was really good, and now is one of two of my top local takeaways….well when I come to Cambuslang.

Download the Foodhub app now and check it out 🙂 The foodhub app is available for Android and IOS so check out your app store now.

Chat to me on here via the comments below, or on my Twitter or Instagram and let me know if you have been here or even tried what I had in this review. I want to hear from you so lets have a wee chat 🙂

Child Friendly: Yes (well behaved kids)      Accepts: Cash & Card


It was time to think where should I book? and the first place that came to mind was Lychee as its been one of my favourites for a long time.

I know as a food blogger I should try different dishes, but anytime I come here I always have the same main dish so don’t expect that to change as its just too good not to have.

The Food…

Starter

SPICY THAI CRACKERS WITH SWEET CHILLI DIP £3.50

IMG_5184

I am a prawn cracker lover, and I first tried these at some point last year and since then if the mood takes me I order these.

Yes the title says spicy but its only a very very small kick.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5
Presentation : 4

CRISPY DUCK ROLLS £4.70

IMG_5186

Duck for me is something I am starting to get a thing for, normally it would be chicken or pork.

I decided to give these a shot tonight and see what they were like,

WOW I loved this and so glad I tried this, the duck rolls were nice and then when you added some of the dip to them so so good the perfect bite.

This is something I will be having again.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5
Presentation : 5

Main Course

CRISPY SHREDDED SWEET ‘N’ CHILLI CHICKEN £13.90

I always have this dish plus the rice when I come here, as a blogger I should really try something different…..but really this is too good not to have.

The title says chilli, but it’s only a small kick which for me is perfect as too spicy I cant handle.

Presentation, taste all perfect and its very very moreish!

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5
Presentation : 5
Value for Money : 5

Overall

I would like to thank Lychee for making tonight very special, and for the amazing food as always.

If you have never been here, please do take a visit you won’t be disappointed.
