I have been a fan of the Ho Wong and Amber Regent for many years and both are , quite rightly , rated as the best Chinese restaurants in Glasgow. The relatively new Lychee is , in my opinion , right up there with these 2 legends. Had lunch there today with some colleagues who had previously never been but... More

We booked a table for lunch on a recent visit to Glasgow. We've been before and really enjoyed our food so we're desperate to go back. At lunchtime you can choose one of a dozen dishes from the reasonably priced set menu at £10.99 for two courses or anything from the more extensive a la carte menu. Rice or noodles... More

This is a little hidden gem of a restaurant. The food and the service are brilliant. We had a beautiful lunch and wine, outstanding service from the staff and would highly recommend, especially the chicken satay starter!

I had given up on Chinese food after too many visits to bland mass produced Chinese 'junk' food such as that spewed out by the ubiquitous 250 item menu establishments you see on most high streets. Few Chinese restaurants were anything other than soulless versions of the 'junk' food take-away. Then from out of nowhere, Mitchell Street to be precise,... More

Having read reviews was looking forward to lunch. Smart restaurant. Service was excellent. Ate off the lunch menu. Chicken in soup was tough. Small portion of noodles with main course. Not particularly tasty overall. Pretty average on food. Below average on price.

I visited here my friend who is allergic to gluten as he finds they have a great choice for him! The food was really lovely and the staff were nice, helping me to choose something different from the menu! If you like Chinese food this is definitely worth a visit!
