This place has been a staple for us for 20 years. We do take out 5 to 10 times a year, and every New Year. We live in New Haven, CT and are fortunate to have a Zagat's rated chinese restaurant in our town - and this is often superior and always as good or better. The fact it's in... More

My husband and I stopped for lunch on a whim while in town. The portions and price were very good....great tea....but I was not impressed with the taste of the food. Our waitress was not very friendly....far from cheerful. While there we were subjected to a loud battle between the waitress and the cook....complete with slamming doors. Did they think... More

My wife felt like some Chinese food for our first R n R back in the US after a two month trip to Indonesia. At first, my wife was just going to order take-out. A friendly cashier took the order and turned it in. After a very brief discussion with me, we decided that we would eat at the restaurant... More

My family and I take-out at Cheerful Garden once during the one week of the year we are in Bristol. We go every year. Althought it is the only Chinese restaurant new Newfound Lake, it would still be the only one we would go to. Their prices are very good and the food is just delicious. We have never had... More

Wide variety on the menu but the food is not spicy so many of the dishes taste like other dishes. This restaurant is probably the lowest cost of any in the area. Great take out service. The atmosphere is worn. The portions are good.

Coming from New York, this Chinese restaurant blows away the ones we have here. Hard to beleive you would find excellent chinese at a small, out of the way town in New hampshire. Their mixed drinks are killer, no skimping on the alcohol. The service is fast and efficient. Food is awesome with generous portions.
