We had been wanting to try Jimmy Lee’s Lychee Oriental for some time so when Mrs G suggested a “pay-day Chinese”, Lychee Oriental won the vote!
Our table was nearer to the back of the busy restaurant – there was a hubbub of activity from waiting staff carrying drinks and amazing-looking plates of food to groups of friends on a night out and couples sitting at tables. It was a friendly, lively atmosphere which I liked very much.
We went straight to mains and Mrs G decided on the “Stir fried beef with fresh asparagus in chilli garlic”. This was a very tasty dish indeed, Mrs G loved it! The flavours of the chilli and the asparagus in the sweet, sticky sauce with pieces of tender beef was a fantastic combination.
I eventually decided on the “Morning Glory extra mature rib-eye beef”, but there were many things on the menu that I was tempted by – we’ll just have to come back! It was delicious. A delicately spiced dish with some nice fresh veg and tender pieces of rib-eye, it was a winner!
We ordered egg-fried rice, plain noodles and Thai spicy crackers on the side and prawn crackers came as standard. Everything was spot on – a really good meal all in all.
If, like us until yesterday, you’ve not yet been to Lychee Oriental, give it a go – you won’t be disappointed!
