“our fav chinese in nh”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

we come here for all our special occassions! mothers day, bdays. we luv the owner and if u get the female waitress and not the grumpy guy u r golden! we luv the chicken corn soup, steamed dumplings. chicken in garlic sauce, pineapple fried rice, chix with broccoli. they dont have any desserts which is a disappointment. their mojitos were very bitter we had to send it back but their pina colada was great. i ordered chicken three ways and the deep fried one was dried out. they r much better with steamed and flavored food. a must visit!

“Best Chinese food in the area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

I understand there are not many GREAT Chinese restaurants in N.H., but this is one of the best. Kim and Frank are most gracious to their patrons, and the atmosphere is very nice and a bit more upscale than most local Chinese eateries. Their lunch specials are an exceptional deal, and their takeout is the best we've found in the Manchester area. They also serve a nice hot tea. I enjoy their Happy Family, and I think their Peking duck is very good. The only issue we've ever had with this restaurant is we often feel rushed. Hard to complain about great service, but it is sometimes difficult to dine leisurely so we usually mention we'd like to when we eat here. (I think it is conscientious of them not to put chopsticks on the table; wasted if not used. They are provided readily if you ask for them.)

“Highly recommended!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

After years of "greasy Chinese food", we discovered the Chen Yang Li and have not gone back to the other Chinese restaurants. The food is excellent, the presentation is attractive, the atmosphere is pleasant, the waitstaff and hosts are friendly, and they keep our water glasses filled! I love their "Two Brothers Special Shrimp"! It's in a plaza right across the street from Macy's so it's easy to find. A delightful surprise comes at the end of the meal -- CHOCOLATE fortune cookies!

Nice selection of Asian food. I ordered a lunch combo which was good sized and well cooked. Will eat here again.

“Fabulous and fresh.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

I have had delivery from this restaurant,and was very pleased. All of the cartons were packed with great care.. The food was very fresh,and hot.(Broccoli was nice and crisp,not mushy). Everything was so flavorful and nice. I would never go to another Asian restautant in the area,now that I've tasted the food from Chen Yang Li.
