Food was missing flavor, was under cooked, and wasn't fresh. Disappointed that the food was poor considering the reviews were good.

This was our first time at Sun Shui. Saw on Facebook that it was voted #1 Asian Restaurant in NH so we decided to check it out. What a great restaurant from the staff to the cocktails to the food. Everything was great. Even the...owner cane over to greet us. We started off with the Spring rolls which were larger than we get in most restaurants and were crispy and delicious. I had the wonton soup and my boyfriend had the Hot and Sour soup. The wonton noodles were perfect and the broth was delicious. For our main entree, we shared the tangerine beef which was the best I’ve ever had along with the vegetable fried rice. They served Chinese, Japanese and Korean specialties. Everything is made fresh which is part of the reason the food is so good. We can’t wait to go back!More

Delivery, food was bland & flavorless, no soy sauce, no rice, at least wasn't loaded with corn starch thickener. Chicken& peanut dish was all carrots & celery, a few peanuts & little chicken.

My mother and I stopped in for lunch. The place was empty - only one other customer - which made us nervous, but we stayed, and we’re glad we did. We both got lunch specials. House-style tofu and vegetables with garlic sauce. Both meals came...with a soup choice. Both the miso and hot & sour were tasty and full of flavor. They also each had a rice choice, We both got veg fried rice which was ok, and an appetizer- spring roll and crab Rangoon were very good. Vegetables in the main dishes were not over cooked and the tofu was nice and crispy. Sauces were great and not too salty. A wonderful lunch for 2 for under $20 before tip. We’d be visiting there again if we weren’t from out of state.More

This restaurant recently denied service to an adult with a disability. I hope they will turn this situation around to help their staff learn about disabilities and other difference. I will suspend any future visits to see if they make a necessary change.

Why is good American Chinese food so hard to find? Sun Shui came highly recommended, though I found it to be average. Don't get me wrong, it was pretty good, and will satisfy the Chinese food craving, but I'm on the hunt for some AMAZING...American Chinese food. It seems impossible to find it in southern NH.More

This was our first visit and everyone enjoyed his/ her meal. I ordered the sushi dinner which featured a good variety and was very fresh. My wife ordered a special of spicy, crispy fish, which was delicious. Others in our party ordered pad Thai and...a seafood special. Everything was nicely prepared and our server was friendly and had a good knowledge of the menu. I found the prices to be reasonable for the quantity and quality of the food.More

We live just around the corner and have eaten in and order out from here multiple times. Only once did we have a disappointing take out experience. Restaurant itself isn't overly large. There are booths along the wall and 5-6 tables out in the room...plus bar seating. We've been there when it's deserted, but also when the place was packed doing dinner pick up so it all just depends on the day and time what it'll be like. Plenty of parking in the lot, but it is next to a pizza joint so not always spots directly in front, but it's not far to walk at all. Service is always attentive, never been left wanting or not able to get someones attention if needed (you usually don't need to because they are paying attention). Food is excellent and there are even dishes that you can specifically order will all white meat chicken. I've seen some people say the place has gone down hill- we haven't been around long enough to really say, but I did notice on a recent visit that the serving size of the Tangerine Chicken (one of my favorites) was smaller than I remember it being in the past. And while there wasn't a problem with the crab rangoon during the most recent visit, the last time I got take out my order was all celergy and I threw it out. So I guess is possible? That said, I really have no other gripes with the place- we've had great meals and enjoyed everything we've tried. In terms of pricing you'll find this is not the cheapest place for Chinese food, but I also think the quality is better and worth it. Recommend the Chicken or Veggie Udon Noodles, crab rangoon, beef sticks, white meat chicken General Tso's, and Tangerine Chicken.More

I went over a week ago, I ordered Szechuan Chicken, the menu said chicken with vegetables and peanuts. I have ordered at other chinese restaurants and enjoyed the dish, not from here, was very disappointed mostly celery and chicken hot peppers and about 2 peanuts....For 10.99 and no white rice unless you pay extra for it. I won't go back, I called and complained never heard back they said they could make me something else but needed to talk to owner,which I hope she does, but for now I won't return.The first picture is theirs second is me trying to fix it!More

The restaurant has an interesting menu including many good options for vegetarians which is important given that there are several in our family. Based on other Trip Advisor recommendations, we ordered a round of Mai Tai which were indeed excellent! The owner also did come...by our table and give a personal touch to the service which included a birthday dessert for my mom who was celebrating her 74th birthday which gave a special touch. The food was tasty which good ingredients and flavors. The only negative was that there was a big party in the restaurant that night and we simply could not hear each other speak. Therefore dialogue around our table was impossible. This was a shame and negatively impacted our evening as the noise level was so high. Other than the acoustics I can highly recommend this restaurant.More

First time visiting and impressed with the selection. The pricing was comparable to other restaurants. Really enjoyed the atmosphere. This was definitely a local hang out. The food tasted great and the service was very good. I would make this a weekly stop.

Sun shui has normally been a great restaurant but the last 2 or 3 times I’ve gone the food has been just OK and the new servers aren’t that good. Let me just say that I have been here at least 30 times and it...is very sad to see it go down hill because I know the quality of sun shui. Hopefully they start to figure things out just like the 2011 Boston bruins did in the playoffsMore

This place is a hidden gem, tucked away in a tiny strip mall. They have all the normal food you would find at a typical Chinese Japanese restaurant, with one exception. They have an authentic Chinese menu that is straight out of Boston Chinatown. If...you like spicy, I recommend the Chinese Beef with hot pepper, I've never had better.More

I have been coming to Sun Shui for a couple years. The food is amazing. Great sushi. Fresh entrees. And new classics. The Mai Thais are the best around. But it’s the people that make every visit amazing. Awesome staff and Laura the owner always...welcomes you with a smile. I have never had a bad meal or experience. Solo. With family or friends.More

Sun Shui is all around outstanding! We normally sit at the bar which is quite cozy and seats about 10 people. Order ourselves a Mai Tai (definitely one of the best in the area, and that I've ever had!) and some sushi to start. We...will then order a couple main dishes. The food is fresh, always hot, and made to order. I tend to have a sensitive stomach when it comes to Asian cuisine, and have not once run into a problem here. It also helps to know their management is kind and caring. Laura goes above and beyond to make you feel like family. Definitely stop in and give this place a try if you're in the area!!More
