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.

Lychee Oriental (Glasgow) 2021 : Review

Its been a long time coming, that I had t come back to Lychee as I think it was over a year…so I had to visit and tonight I did that.

Starter :

Vietnamese King Prawn Rolls £6.00

Tonight was all about trying something new for me, and as far as I can remember I have not had this before.

As always presentation here is always perfect, and its all instant eye candy.

I first tried these on their own.

The batter was really nice, it had a nice crisp to it but not too crunchy and the prawn was perfectly cooked.

Now with the soya…mmm just as nice but added that salty flavour we all love.

My Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Main Course :

Again there were so many options I wanted to try, and I was tempted to order my usual but I opted for this.

Honey Chilli Chicken & Fried Rice £14.50

Normally I go for my normal, but today I opted for the honey version to see how this compared to my normal dish….plus I told Jimmy I would order something different on my next visit so I had to keep my word.

Visually this looked like my normal dish here, but how does the taste compare.

Ohh this does taste different, very nice and the honey is nice and subtle with a little kick.

This was very nice but I think my normal still wins but a very enjoyable dish and highly recommended.

My Rating :

Rating: 4 out of 5.

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.

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

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!
