“Highly recommended. Good, honest nosebag!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

I like this place a lot. Living in the area means I have tried most places and this is certainly one of the best 'cafe' type places in Merchant City.

The staff - of which there are normally two, one of whom is the owner - are very polite and efficient.

The menu offers a good range of options and as discussed in previous reviews there are some nice Chines & Thai choices too. The food is always brought promptly and tastes fresh.

My only criticism is I went in for a takeaway one day and almost fell over when I was charged £1.50 for a can of Coke! Having said that, this is a pleasant., well run business so I wasn't mad for too long.

Certainly better than all the other informal food joints nearby. Definitely one to try.

“Breath of fresh air”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2011

Hate the all-pervasive American coffee shop? Looking for lunch in a bright environment with superb service? Fancy a choice between a sandwich and a genuine oriental snack? Then get yourself down to this fantastic cafe on the edge of Merchant City.
Lovely food and great service - with special praise for our lovely waitress (sorry don't know here name). We will return.

“A little off the beaten; track but worth looking for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2011

Lily's is stylish modern and very clean. They serve tasty home-made soup, sandwiches, cakes and snacks. Very polite helpful staff and very reasonable prices. Forego the corporate coffee shops and give these small businesses a chance, you'll find that it's well worth the visit
