Had a very lovely meal at Lychee Chinese Restaurant. The food is absolutely delicious and the service friendly and attentive. Loved the laid back, welcoming atmosphere. We will most certainly be eating here again!

“Superb Chinese”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

We had a wonderful Chinese at Lychee yesterday, whilst on a family break away to Peebles. The staff were very welcoming and the restaurant had a nice atmosphere although quiet. Probably due to the fact we were dining early with young children. We ordered a selection of our usual favourites from the menu and were not at all disappointed! The food was delicious. We will definitely return in the future should our travels take us back to Peebles. We can highly recommend this restaurant to lovers of Chinese cuisine.

“Found a cracking and superb chinese!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

My partner and I found this lovely and stunning chinese tucked away down a side street in Peebles town. Just happened to stumble accross it during the day and thought I'd given it a try! And we weren't disappointed! We attented here 26/1/13

The two main waitresses were so welcoming and pleasant! We were only the second customers to arrived so had pick of the tables. Shortly after we arrived it got very busy with more sit down meals and people in for takeaways.

The girls took our orders for drinks and were qick to bring them. Gave you enough time to browse their menu then took our food orders.

You are also given the option to use chinese chopsticks or cutlery...so don't panick if you see just chopsticks on the table when you first arrive.

My partner and I both got the prawn toast...which arrived hot and fresh. The prawn toast was a meal itself...very generous portion...very filling too!.

So we were both glad we had a small gap between starters and our mains. I had the chicken satay, my partner had the chicken curry. We just ordered the one rice(as the portion is plenty for two people).

We both shared and tasted each others mains and I must say its the best chinese we've ever had! Tasted authentic, was freshly made and served hot! Portions are generous and enough for the one person.

And when the bill arrived...we were like wow we got all those drinks and food for £36...which I found amazing considering we paid almost double the night before in the Prince of India!!

If I were you I'd give this lovely chinese a shot, food is lovely, staff are great, atmosphere good too! And very good value for money!
