seeking good chinese near Hooksett NH area

  • 8

Our Tsingtao house closed and we are currently without chinese food in the area that is half way decent. We loved the crab rangoons there and are looking for someplace similar. Must have good lo mein and just the basics. Nothing fancy, just good everyday chinese food in the Hooksett/Manchester NH area. Help!!

    1. When we're in Manchester and want Chinese we go to a place recommended by a friend. Sorry, can't remember the name. From Elm St go up Hanover Street. It's near the stadium in a strip mall on your left. I think there's a Chinese grocery there, too, in the corner. Haven't had the lo mein. It's not fancy.
      In the Concord area we go to Schezuan Garden on Fisherville Rd in Penacook.

      1. Peking Garden 2 (I think?) on Elm is very good - -

        1. We really liked the Schezuen House on Valley St. (just across from old Gill Stadium). Heard great things about Lilac Gardens in Nashua (I think thats what it's called).

          1. Also Thousand Crane on Elm has authenic Chinese (Japanese & sushi too) dishes.

            1. I will cast another vote in favor of Szechuan House, next to Gill Stadium (on the first base side) in what used to be the location of the J.M. Fields store many, many years ago. It's one of my mother's favorites and whenever we go to visit her, if Chinese food is on the agenda, that's where we go. Of course, if it were the "old days" we would have gone to the China Dragon in Hooksett but, alas, that's been gone almost as long as J.M. Fields has.

              1. Thanks everyone! we have since tried szechuan house and it's good. Nothing like my old standby favorite, but it will do. We are going to try more on the menu on new years. thanks again

                1. You MUST MUST try Bonsai! It is right up the Rt. 28 By-pass on Candia Rd (Right where Spatts used to be,) just past the Highway on ramp to Rt 101.

                  It is JUST outside of Hoosett line.. But the food is fantastic, the crab rangoons are full and delicious.
