We've been eating both eat in and take out from Tiger Lilly since they opened and it's always fresh, hot and very tasty. It's not the cheapest Chinese in Fort Collins but the prices are very fair for the quality of ingredients and portion sizes. I grew up on home cooked Chinese, have visited China and ate Chinese takeout at... More

Stumbled across this restaurant on a walk down Elizabeth St. and am glad I did. The unassuming/underwhelming exterior and interior belie the exceptionally delicious food that I had inside. I ordered the Sesame chicken and Mongolian combo with multi-grain rice. The sesame chicken was amazing- the crunchy texture, moist white-meat chicken, and tasty sauce made this one of the best...

The food here is NOT GOOD. The food has heavy, thick brown gravy with bland flavor. There were no crispy vegetables, color or healthy qualities to the dishes. The egg rolls were bland, limp, cold and expensive. The service was very slow and then the food came to the table cold. The white rice was poorly prepared, sticky, undercooked and... More

My husband and I accidently came across this place while driving through the area, and had actually heard of TigerLily from a few friends of ours and thought, why not try it. It's a little place hidden amongst a few other shops in a strip mall so it's very easy to miss. The atmosphere felt nice and cozy, when we... More

I get that an old, "established" chinese restaurant in a strip mall will not be beautiful. However, this place is a filthy mess. The food is mediocre at best, full of cornstarch. The waiter was pleasant and attentive. The bathroom might have been cleaned sometime during the last decade....not sure. We were hoping for a new spot. We will not... More

My husband had the Kung Pao Triple Delight, and I had the chicken curry with coconut milk. As I don't do spicy, I requested mild. The service was prompt and attentive without being overly so. When we were served our order, there was very little talking as we were enjoying our lunch so much. In fact, we both almost licked... More

A bit hard to find tucked into the corner of a strip mall west of the CSU campus, but worth the search. Many of my friends and I have traveled in Asia and pretty much agree that the flavors are more like the authentic flavors found there than most of the Asian restaurants in Fort Collins (South China is another...

I'm pretty picky when it comes to Chinese food - it seems like a lot of places try to veil poor quality food with a lot of sauce, but this was definitely not the case with Tiger Lily's food. I had the sesame chicken and it was big chunks of meat that you could actually tell was chicken! The sauce... More

Fear holds us back from experiencing a lot of things in life. Holding us back from telling someone how we feel, from making a leap in a career move, from taking risks. This is so true for our culinary experiences. Fear often holds us back from enjoying a variety of rarely eaten or unfamiliar foods. We're comfortable in our little... More
