“Take out or dine in - it's all good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

This Lilac Blossom location does a booming take-out business. We typically do take-out but last weekend decided to actually go out for a change. The restaurant is spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. A full bar is available, and there is a nice separation between the bar and dining areas so there is little noise coming from the bar. Waiter was friendly and attentive. We tend to order the same few meals in rotation and can only review a limited number of menu items, but the food is consistently good (with the occasional chunk of fat in the sesame chicken) and fresh. The pu-pu platter seemed to be a very popular item and ours was about the only table not ordering it. Prices are decent. And those crunchy noodles they serve at the beginning of the meal? Pure evil and to die for! Worth the dining experience just for those.

“Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

This restaurant is clean and spacious , service is very good and the Food is excellent.
Our server was very good and did not rush us on a busy Sunday.The only problem we encountered was with the drinks. We ordered a few specialty drinks off the menu and the drinks did not have the ingredients on the menu. Not sure if it was the bar or the server but it was corrected and only a minor problem to an otherwise great dining experience.
I have also had take-out many times from the Lilac Blossom and had the same great quality.

“Very Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Stopped by the location off Spit Brook Rd. on a Saturday afternoon and were seated immediately. The decor of this place is beautiful; very clean, bright, high ceilings, above average table settings, and I would consider it slightly upscale.
Their menu had an extensive variety of house specials, hot & spicy selections, luncheon plates, Mandarin dishes, along with the usual choices.
My spouse and I ordered a Pu-Pu platter, pork fried rice, and beef lo mein. It was a lot of food but we wanted leftovers. They brought a plate of complimentary wontons that were the best I have ever had, light and crispy! Everyting on the platter was delicious, especially the chicken wings and fingers. The rice wasn't loaded with soy sauce and the lo mein was perfect.
I'll definitely come back here when I'm in the mood because it's one of the better Chinese restaurants in this area.

My daughter & I ate lunch here & I was so impressed. The service was very good, & tasted so good. The crab rangoon was very good & the tea was tasty. We had egg drop soup which was the best we ever had. I had sesame chicken & loved it.

“Closed entry already 40 minutes before closing time.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

The food here has generally been excellent in the past, but the level of service varies, especially when the staff wishes to go home. An establishment that says it is open until 10pm should seat guests until a reasonable hour. Refusing seating at 9:20pm to a party is simply unacceptable. The waiter was about to seat my party, and the hostess stopped him cold, saying it was after 9:15. - To make the trip to their remote location to then be turned away has nothing to do with being in the the service industry, unless a lack of service is the standard.
