We were looking for somewhere for a retirement dinner for a colleague. The lady who is retiring, does not eat wheat. So having been in the Lychee Oriental a few times before and knowing that they have a separate gluten free menu, I did not hesitate to recommend it. We were not disappointed, the food was fresh and delicious. The... More

Was recommeded here and reviews on trip advisor looked good. Food was ok but nothing more and well overpriced. Staff, well you couldn't paint a smile on their faces. Disinterested and basically served you like an assembly line. IN -GIVE US YOUR MONEY -OUT won't be back!

Excellent food. Loved it. Different from the Chinese take aways located in every nook and corner of glasgow. The portions of rice and Noodles are very less. Hardly enough for a single Person. Overall the food was fantastic. The ambience was nice.

Visited on a Thursday lunchtime: £10.90 for two courses. Downsides: lack of vegetarian choice - just one starter and one main to opt for from lunchtime menu, and drinks very expensive (£3.80 for a small bottle of Tiger beer). Plus-points: beautifully-cooked and presented food, with a gluten-free menu at the same price. Attentive but non-intrusive service, with little waiting-time.

This is a regular favourite when we are in Glasgow - visited on Saturday to celebrate my partners birthday with a small family group. Food as always was superb, all very well presented and streets ahead of the competition. Our group of 4 had a variety of meals, including spring rolls/soup/chicken wings to start, and beef in chilli garlic sauce/Katsu... More

First time at Lychee Oriental . Really found the menu quite different to other Chinese restaurants and lots of variety including Vegetarian etc. I especially enjoyed my starter of King prawn chillies and my main meal of scallops cooked in a sauce... We brought in Birthday cake so skipped dessert but had coffee and the staff were great singing happy... More

Very popular (Saturday night) The staff were very attentive even though it was so busy. Drinks, cocktails reasonable. The food was excellent and was presented well.I had fish and... More
