The cosmopolitan space, on Mitchell Street, features an eye-catching dining room with monochromatic taupe and creme furnishings, low ceilings, plush dining chairs and modern lighting fixtures.

These have all been matched with a new colour scheme, breathing fresh life into one of Scotland's most celebrated Chinese restaurants.

Head chef Jimmy Lee described his thought process behind the restaurant’s new look.

He said: “We didn’t want to radically change the fabric of the restaurant or the spirit of Lychee's dining experience.

Instead, we wanted to enhance the lively atmosphere and energy that our space has become known for.

Lychee Oriental has an amazing support network around us and we hope that all of our guests, both regulars and first-timers love our transformation.”
