Tiki Palace in Braintree to Be Replaced by Lychee Bistro and Lounge

by Marc Hurwitz

A longtime spot south of Boston for Chinese food and drinks is shutting down, as it is being replaced by a brand new restaurant.

The Braintree Forum is reporting that Tiki Palace in Braintree is closing and is transferring its licenses to an Asian fusion eatery called Lychee Bistro and Lounge. The article says that the new spot will include a new lounge area and overall renovations to the space (with the seating capacity dropping from 140 to 124), while the menu will offer both Asian fusion and traditional fare.

No closing date has been given as of yet for Tiki Palace--which has been in business for approximately two decades--nor has an approximate opening date been given for Lychee Bistro and Lounge, so stay tuned for updates.

The address for Tiki Palace (and the upcoming Lychee Bistro and Lounge) is 1177 Washington Street, Braintree, MA, 02184.

[June 14 update: According to a source, Tiki Palace is now closed.]

[October 23 update: A job post within the site indicates that Lychee Bistro and Lounge is indeed coming to the former Tiki Palace space and that it is now hiring a lead bartender/bar manager. The post also mentions that the place will be a "contemporary fusion Asian lounge and restaurant."]
