Delicious Asian food. House salad, lime and chile edamame and bento box was perfect for lunch. High quality with great, friendly service. Offered a cozy space with easygoing ambiance. We definitely preferred lunch rather than dinner.

First time coming to this Establishment. I heard so many wonderful things about this Establishment. Brought my buddy here for dinner. We were both welcomed warmly by the staff. Our server was wonderful. Now to the food, we both started with pork gyoza & rangoons,...the gyoza were absolutely flavorful and the dipping sauce matched it perfectly, and the rangoons were crispy and hot and the amount cream cheese and crab was perfectly balanced. We both had General Tso's Chicken as our entrees which was remarkably delicious, we both love spicy and they made it the way we liked it, the chicken was moist and crisp to perfection wokked in its spicy and tantalizing sauce which was sweet, sour, & spicy, it was perfect with the sticky jasmine rice. Also we both had crunchy spicy tuna rolls which were very tasty. As a Culinarian & Foodie, I have eaten at some of the Top Asian establishments in the country, Lily is at the top in my eyes, they have excellent service, and outstanding food. Definitely check out Lily, and it's Highly Recommended and tell them Charlie sent you. You have me as a customer for Life!More

Had take out for lunch from Lily's and it was wonderful as always. We love the Bento boxes for lunch. They are a great value and come with many tasty treats. You chose your entree and it comes with a small salad, miso soup, sweet...potato roll sushi and pork dumplings. It is a great way to try different entrees while knowing you will have tasty side dishes. During the Covid-19 stay at home order it is important to support our local businesses and I hope many others give Lily's a try for take out!More

A friend was visiting and wanted sushi, so we took her to Lily -- a gem of a restaurant in the heart of Kennett Square. We had a great meal and experience. We all ordered Bento boxes, a special available at lunch. Each comes with...an entree, miso soup, salad, sweet potato roll, rice and gyoza. It's a great, reasonably priced meal. I tried the massaman thai curry chicken and I've never tasted a curry broth so rich and flavorful. Just a tiny amount of heat. My wife ordered Mongolian beef, and the pieces were so tender. Our friend loves Japanese cuisine and asked if they had an uni sushi. They did! I was presented beautifully and tasted very fresh.More

Excellent food, excellent service! The only place for superior sushi in this area. We’ve been coming here for a few years and they even hosted our daughter’s after wedding meal last year 😊

Lily Asian is a fantastic sushi restaurant! We had a wide variety of roles including a steak sushi roll - what a concept! It was really good! Pleasant atmosphere and attentive waitstaff. Only downside, wish that they had an alcohol permit. Don’t miss the mushroom...fries - outstanding!More

On the surface, they are a byob place sans ostentation. What they really are under the hood is a great place to eat with excellent service and a laid-back genteel ambience that attracts a clientele that appreciates such things. Reservations are a must, because the...place is crowded until around 8:30 pm. The sushi is excellent. Add to that the orange chicken, at a level of taste above what you would find anywhere else. Prices are reasonable and parking is a breeze. A fine place to revisit!More
