I would not even give this restaurant one star, if I did not have too. I had great experiences with this restaurant in the past, but after tonight, I will never order from them again. I ordered online, while I was out of town, for my family and the food was never delivered. I found out about this four hours... More

My cousin and I went there because we were in the area. We enjoyed it so much that we have been back and I took my husband there. May be going there again soon, just made myself hungry.

Lychee has become my new favorite Chinese restaurant in town. Their food is excellent...I am addicted to their garlic chicken. I always order delivery and they are relatively quick. You're also able to order online which is a big plus for me.

Just had the Crab and Shrimp w/garlic sauce and an order of scallops (great paired together). Their hot tea is self serve and wonderful. Prices are right in line with other similar style restaurants but the food is made to order and tastes by far fresher than what others offer. Much better than buffet food!!!!!

The General Tso's is the best! Prices are great too. It's clean, and service is good and fast. If you call in an order, and leave as soon as you're done on the phone, It will be ready when you get here.

Great little takeout place. The owner, Sam, is friendly and food is always consistently good. The only place we go for takeout.

Have eaten here numerous times before and was always good. Tonight service took forever, I was the only one there and for takeout. Ribs were way overcooked. Egg roll was undercooked as if they had forgotten them. Im hoping it was just an off night as it is usually good. Will give another shot. Hopefully they redeem themselves

I have gotten take out from Lychee on several occasions and have eaten there on one occasion. You can see the kitchen where they prepare the food and it is very clean as is the seating and serving area. Their hot & spicy meals are down right mild, but still good flavor. Service has always been prompt. Rarely are they... More
