We have picked up a couple of takeaways from here before and they have been fine, but decided to visit the restaurant last night. Outside wasn't particularly cold (~8°C), however the restaurant was uncomfortably chilly. There was a small fan heater on the floor at the door which didn't seem to do much. One of the soft drinks that arrived... More

The meals are always superb and full off flavour, you can tell that all the food is cooked fresh! Good value for money.

We've lived in Peebles for 18 months now and get a takeaway from here once a month. We came from Edinburgh and I believe that the Lychee is better than any Chinese meals we had in Edinburgh. The young staff are excellent; very helpful always.

We went for the first time to Lychee and were really very surprised by the quality, the presentation, the service. I visited Chinese restaurants all over the world, but, this one deserves being well known. Excellent food. High standard. We spoke to the owner/cook/lady, a talented young woman indeed. Would recommend it highly, will surely go back. Lucy

We always look forward to trying a different restaurant but Friday night at 20:00 to be empty was a bad sign. We opted for take out. It was distinctly average. Prawn toast was deep fried and crispy. Chow Mein was packed full of celery (never noticed it in any Chinese dish before). Black bean sauce was bland. Shame really

Discovered Lychee by chance while in Peebles today and were impressed by the excellent service and the quality of the dishes. The mixed seafood with ginger & spring onion was delicious, as were the salt and chilli king prawns. The prices were extremely reasonable too. Recommended.

Booked here to do a birthday party and they kindly invited us to stay for food. It was so cooked so perfectly and will return for a evening out with my family. Thanks again for having us 😊

Visited with some friends. We expected it to be busy on a Friday evening but we were the only ones in. I suppose maybe it does well with takeaway food. Central location in the town and easy to find. To be honest, it could possibly do with a bit of smartening up in the decor dept. We had a fair... More
