    Service was really bad but I'm sure they will straighten up more in time as they get better staff and more training. Very unfortunate that our bad experience was during a mother's day brunch.

    Attended the Mother’s Day Brunch. Food took over an hour and half to arrive and each dish arrived over 20 minutes apart. They ran out of eggs and food did not taste as good. I recommend lowering the price unless they’re a better chef. Drinks were very good.

    Lychee Bistro has quickly become our most favorite go-to restaurant and local hangout spot with a great selection of quality and curated dishes (You must try the lamb chops, hot stoned steak Pho, pork belly steam buns, corn ribs, lollipop chicken wings, lemongrass mussels), delicious cocktails (I highly recommend the ‘Lychee’), beers and other alcoholic drinks. Their weekend brunch menu is wonderful (My favorites are the crab cake egg benedict, Stuffed Mascarpone French Toast). The restaurant is well designed and always spotless which are huge contributed factors to their great ambiance and wonder atmosphere. The owners, bartenders and their staffs are knowledgeable, super friendly, always gracious and fun to be around. Lychee has never disappointed and we’ve always had such wonderful time there.

    Great variety of Asian fusion to fit any appetite. From more traditional baus and dumplings to tuna tar tar tacos and kimchi fries. Mains also have a good variety to choose from. The signature cocktails are tasty along with some nice local beers on tap. Staff and owners are very nice snd accommodating. Look out for their specials too like $1 oyster nights.

    This restaurant is one of the best things to come to the south shore! It is true Asian fusion and every single item that I ordered was absolutely delicious! The owners took special care to bring a hip city vibe to the suburbs and the flavors of all the foods are nothing short of amazing! The owners are also very kind and welcoming and engage with guests. I highly recommend this restaurant the next time you’re in the area!

    Delicious apps! Great to share to try lots of different flavors. Drinks were great! Prices were high. Noise level got very loud when a big party came into the lounge area. We requested the main dining room where I think it would have been quieter. Staff was very attentive and friendly. Definitely would recommend to friends!

    I ordered the sea bass which was very good but not enough food to warrant the 39.00 price. I have had the scallops with butternut squash before and it was very good.

    The food was really delicious, very flavorful, and with decent portions. The drinks were really good. I recommend The Luscious Lychee. Our waiter appeared to be new in his role and was forgetful at times. Even with that, I really enjoyed myself. It has a nice vibe to it and I would go back again.

    Food was yummy and the server was great. However, way overpriced. They serve $16 cocktails!! For a place in Braintree, not Boston, this is ridiculous. No wonder it was dead empty on a Friday night. Wont be returning

    Four of us sat in the main dining room and enjoyed an evening of wonderful small plates, which we shared. The staff provided impeccable service. Scallops, cello noodles with veggies, rice, ribs, dumplings, all were delectable and we would order them again. The bar staff are well-equipped and know how to mix a top-notch old fashioned. The big surprise is that Lychee has their own dessert specialist and the house-made chocolate cake was the best we’ve eaten in any restaurant. We highly recommend this excellent spot.

    Such amazing wait staff went weekend before Valentine’s Day, so it was nicely decorated and they gave us a Valentine’s Day surprise with chocolates. We loved our experience, food came out quickly and the waiter was really attentive. I would come back for a date night and for the pork baos.

    Lychee is a vibrant and fun place for a younger crowd. This is just what Braintree needed! The food was flavorful and the portions were bigger than I thought they would be. The drinks were delicious. The service was unparalleled. The owners personally greeted everyone. I know this is a new place with some room to improve, but I am excited to go back.

    I went in to catch a play-off game at the bar. The menu is limited as you might expect for a newly opened establishment. The bartender was friendly and attentive. I ordered the ribs, which was enough for a meal. They were tasty and fell off the bone. The apple slaw was a good accompaniment. I also liked the selection of local craft beers. Overall it was a solid first experience and I plan to go back.

    This was such a great experience. The restaurant is beautiful the service outstanding and the food phenomenal. We ordered the corn ribs eggplant and tuna tartare for apps. All excellent. Two of us ordered the pho and two of us ordered the ramen. We’re still arguing over which one was better. The owner is obviously extremely proud of his establishment the hard work it took to get to the opening and the food he serves. He should be. A little pricey but worth it. We’ll be back.

    Lychee Bistro & LoungeResponded on February 3, 2022Thanks, Lynn. I'm glad to hear that your party enjoyed our Steak Pho and Oxtail Ramen soups since it takes us 24 hours to make each batch. See you again soon.
