Japanese/Chinese/Seafood near Andover?

My cousin and her family are visiting from Thailand, and would like to eat either Japanese or Chinese (preferably Cantonese) while here. Alternatively, a really good seafood restaurant. Anyone have any recommendations?

Given that they live in Bangkok, I'm concerned they'll have a tough time finding something comparable to what they're used to, but whatever you can suggest would be most helpful! If there isn't anything of great quality in the area, then let me know what you think is best in the area regardless of cuisine.

I live near Fenway, so I'm afraid I don't know any of the restaurants up there. Thanks!

  1. Mootone is a pretty good Japanese/sushi restaurant near the commuter rail stop in Andover. Next door is its sister restaurant, Teatone, which bills itself as Chinese, but I have never tried it.

    My favorite restaurant in Andover is Yella Grille, which is Lebanese, located off of Main St near the post office. Unfortunately, options are not great.

      Ditto on the very limited options. Teatone is primarily a take-out joint of mediocre food. The only really good Chinese I can think of in the area is Top Garden in Tewksbury but its specialty is Szechuan, not Cantonese.

        Hey Jana, I heard from a friend that top garden recently went trough a shake up, not sure what kind, have you seen any change recently??

          The last 3 times I've gotten take-out there, I've only ordered the dry hot chicken and white rice, which I'm sort of addicted to, so I can't say for sure. However, I do feel the chicken has not been as spicy/hot lately. I used to get a nice mouth burn from the peppercorns and I'm just not feeling it anymore.

          Thanks everyone. I was afraid you were going to say that!
