This is by far the best American style Chinese food in Brooklyn. The crab rangoon actually have crab, the dumplings are huge and the house tea is wonderful!

Stay away from this place, they are totally rude and unprofessional . Respectfully paid my tab and left a decent tip and the waiter had the nerve to state that the tip was not enough . By the way the dumplings are lousy.

Fast service! It's like they staft cooking before you order. It gets crowded. The staff is very friendly and fast. The soup comes right away but the main course comes before you finish the soup and right after you get the main course, the check is placed on the table. Not for a relaxing meal but great for lunch on... More

This restaurant has great food and portions, and friendly service. And, it is very affordable! I went with a group from work and they were able to handle the crowd! It is also great for just a couple of people, as well!

Decided to give this Chinese Restaurant a try for delivery and glad I did. This will not be the only time I order from them. Delivery was fast and the food came well packaged and hot. The steamed beef dumplings were excellent. The cold sesame noodles were among the best I've ever had. The "YO YO Chicken" contained lots of... More

Stopped in while exploring the Heights. Had a great lunch. Ordered from the regular rather than the lunch menu. The cold noodles in sesame peanut sauce were outstanding. Very friendly waiter.

It's worth the steps down to enjoy their food. Generous portions. Always served hot even for take-out. Especially like their cashew chicken. When we want Chinese food that's are destination even though there are a number of Chinese restaurants in the area of Brooklyn Heights

consistent, cheap, quick, and tasty! what more do you need from a local chinese spot? I've never dined in so can't comment on the restaurant ambiance, but they are my go-to place to order from.

Lichee Nut Restaurant is one of Brooklyn Heights' finest ethnic restaurants. It serves Chinese food with a flair and plenty of it. The food is always plentiful and delicious. My favorite is lemon chicken and chicken with cashew nuts. It is relatively inexpensive in terms of eateries on Montague Street and one that you will enjoy on a budget. It's... More
