This is one our favorite restaurants in the area. This restaurant is very well kept and the food is delicious. All the dishes are presented well. The staff are friendly and provide exceptional service. I will recommend to anyone either for family or for a business occasion/meeting.

Have been to this lovely restaurant several times - the decor is lovely, the staff are SUPERIOR (they could give lessons in courtesy & perfect grooming), the food - EXCELLENT! My all time favorite is the tangerine beef - just spicy (hot) enough - although they will prepare it to your personal taste - the beef is tender and so so flavorful, the veggie rice is perfect. Have NEVER had a poor meal or service here. HIGHLY recommend it to those diners who enjoy a well-prepared meal and will appreciate the impeccable service.

I love Chinese food, and have sampled it wherever i go, But The lilac Blossom on east Dunstable St ( there is anothere one where I have never been) and this is the best I have had through many years. I live almost across the street and I have never had a bad meal there.

We recently visited our family in NH. When we asked where they would like to go for lunch our grandchildren they were enthusiastic: they loved Lilac Blossom. Our daughter was equally enthusiastic, so off we went.
The kids go to Lilac Blossom often, and they know their favorite dishes. The waiter took our order, and placed it immediately.
The restaurant was not crowded, with only two or three other parties evident. In spite of this, and that we hadn’t yet been served, our waiter hovered impatiently in the background. After we were served our waiter continued to hover. We understand the courtesy required of a guest, that if the restaurant is full we should vacate the table to make way for other guests, but this was not the case for our visit. In addition, our granddaughter spilled some water. This was not a cascade, but our waiter could not hide his displeasure. Lilac Blossom has fresh linen tablecloths and napkins, so I appreciate their wanting to keep the place up. When you have children, we think allowances should be made.
Portions are ample. The kids liked their food, but they did not eat half of what was served. There is no children’s menu. We liked what we ordered.
We were a bit surprised at the amount of the bill. The food was good, but given that there is no children’s menu, expensive for what it was. The cost of the meal was higher than we expected for a lunch at a place in a strip mall.
Altogether, Lilac Blossom is a good if not somewhat pricey restaurant, one which is not especially child friendly.

We have dined at the Lilac Blossom on Route 101A in Nashua since we arrived in the area 15 years ago. It never disappoints. The dining room is clean, bright, and the tables are set with fresh white tablecloths, fresh flowers, and good flatware and dishes. The staff is always polite and efficient. Their employees speak and understand English well; we have never had a problem with their mistranslating an order. We frequently order takeout from this establishment.

Recently we visited the Lilac Blossom for lunch. Their lunch specials are as large as regular meals. You also get your choice of soup and rice with the entrees. We both chose the wonton soup. One of us picked brown rice, the other the vegetable fried rice. As usual, the soups arrived promptly, along with some fried noodle chips and dips (hot mustard and sweet/sour sauce). One of our entrees was spicy Chicken Amazing with vegetables. The other was the ginger chicken with string beans. Both were prepared with just enough spice to bite but not enough to burn.

Our server was prompt, maybe a little too prompt in clearing our dishes, but she took good care of us. Another server who has been there for several years recognized us and said hello.

We wish we could get the vegetable fried rice with the dinners—for some reason, Lilac Blossom offers it only at lunch.

My employer used to bring in several dishes from the Lilac Blossom during the first week of January to welcome us all back from holiday break. We often see large groups of employees from the local area enjoying business lunches at the Lilac Blossom.

There is a second location, at East Dunstable (Sky Meadow), and we had a poor experience there, with long wait and poor service. We would not return to that location, but we are frequent and satisfied customers at the Amherst St (Greystone Plaza) location.
