Excellent service and fresh food

We stopped by for lunch today. We were greeted right away and given a nice table by the window. The place was very clean and pretty busy for 2pm (a good sign in my mind). Hubby and I ordered the sushi and kiddo had chix fingers and miso.The food was very fresh and really tasty. We also had the... read more

I have come to this place several times. Ordering by phone..I have received partial orders upon getting my items home and omission completely of others from my order but still charged. I called several times to correct these mistakes, I was told to contact a someone when coming back in the restaurant to let them know I was supposed to... More

I have been going to Chen's at least three times a month since it opened. It is small, busy, and very inviting. Sitting at the bar and watching your sushi being made by expert hands is a plus. The menu also offers Chinese food delights. Double DIng (chicken and shrimp with mushrooms in a light sauce) can be served with... More

We ordered a Dragon Roll that was fresh and massive! Fed two of us. Also had Crab Rangoons that were the largest I've ever seen. Finished up with some sort of Chinese noodle dish, but to be honest, I was too full and can hardly remember what we ordered. It was quite good, though, I remember that! Service was friendly... More

I'm still looking for decent sushi in NH. Decor was nice, clean. Service robotic. Sushi stale, half of it really did not taste good. Fairly expensive. My second trip there and both not good. No reason to go back.

Lunch arrived on cold plates so the food got cold in 5 minutes. Waiter never returned to ask how things were. The food was OK, but got cold. We waited for quite some time for the check which was strange as the place was not busy. The waiter looked at us and still never came over. Finally another waiter grabbed... More

Had lunch today with a friend of mine. I had a lunch special, he has sushi. Both were excellent and the price was reasonable. Good service too.

Friends of ours live in the area and my family has visited them twice in the past year. Both times Chen's Garden was the dinner spot, for obvious reasons. I personally was not a fan of sushi at first, I even tried California sushi at Sugar Fish! If you are unfamiliar it is one of the go to places for... More

Food was good, crab rangoons were ok, tea was .99/cup.. No pre appetizers like bread/butter.. Setting was nice. The egg rolls were kind of greasy and the hot & sour soup- I felt had too much sesame oil- but my husband really liked it. He felt today (Sunday) might've just been a not so great day, as he has been... More

My mother and I enjoy the lunch special at Chen's Garden. It is our favorite place for chicken lo mein. The noodles are very fine and the pieces of chicken are small and tender. We also really like the flavor of the crab rangoon; light and tasty. The owner is friendly and accommodating. The restaurant is clean and pleasant. Each... More
