“Shanghai specialties”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Loved the Shanghai rice cakes and the Tung-po pork. Serving portons aren't huge and the cost is very reasonable for New York. Good place for a family.

“I thought Lychee House was pretty ordinary”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

I'm somewhat surprised at the Trip Advisor ratings. We didn't find Lychee House to be that special. Nice menu. Good variety, but the food was pretty ordinary. Attentive service.

“excellent!”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

We loved this place so much we ate here twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. Food is delicious, staff is attentive and friendly.
The duck with pine nuts on a bed of lettuce was delicious.

“Excellent mainstream Chinese food.”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

I cook and eat a lot of Chinese food. This place is excellent for the majority of people. If you're looking for ultra-authentic food and menus printed in Mandarin, go to Chinatown. If you're looking for well prepared food that you can recognize, I highly recommend this place.
