Chef ( husband and wife team) was kind enough to make me shrimp egg foo young. It was light, fluffy and yummy. Three large ones came on the plate. Light gravy was served on the side. My husband had the Tiger Lilly Beef. He really enjoyed it too. Super crab rangoon- hot and fresh! We will be back!

The food is pretty good. I haven't found an awesome Chinese restaurant in Indy yet. Since they don't have much competition and because they are better than the competition, I'm rating them Very Good. The staff is friendly which makes for a good experience.

This is the best Chinese restaurant in Indianapolis, hands down. Frances is a friendly host and makes sure everything is delicious. The food is hot and very fresh. You will walk away wishing you hadn't eaten so much. The restaurant is very clean and has a nice decor. This is such a great place! I can't wait to return!

This is a great family owned local asian restaurant. I've been coming here since the current owners parents started it. The food is superb!!

The address is incorrectly listed, it is 1146 not 146 W 86th Street, I found it by keep heading west on 86th, since the address 146 as listed was an apartment not a strip mall. I am glad I did. I was in the mood for good Chinese meal and was traveling alone so a big fancy expensive restaurant was... More

Tiger Lily has had some ups and downs in the not too distant past, but thankfully prior management returned and with it so has the previous level of high quality. It's a neighborhood place for us so we have been going fairly regularly for the last 3 years and I'm happy to say that the kitchen really is doing it... More

My favorite chinese/asian restaurant in Indy -- the original owners have returned and so have their standards. Quality ingredients and outstanding preparation are once again the order of the day. I love the black bean chicken and Vietnamese rice noodles, but every thing I've had recently has been wonderful. Although take-out is an option, the interior is cozy and has... More

Hmmm...what to order - everything is delicious! I went with the Special, Black Bean Chicken & Shrimp! Spicy, flavorful and generous portions. The lunch menu comes with spring roll and crab rangoon. Welcoming atmosphere, easy parking and friendly staff. Frances (the owner/chef) often comes out of the kitchen to thank guests for coming and to ask how your meal was... More
