Smile Lee Wah Restaurant, Moultonborough

I recently heard that Lee Wah Restaurant in Moultonborough is now open under new ownership as Lee Wah Chen Restaurant. I am simply wondering if any forum members are able to give it a quick review.

I gave it a try because it was under new ownership. I thought it was really good! I hadn't gone there in at least ten years because the food was so bad and I live in Moultonborough

It's much better now than it was before the new owners took over! They also have a coupon in the simply direct mailer!

Can you elaborate what was so terrible? We used to go there once in awhile although its probably been a few years anyway. I always thought they were "ok" nothing ever made me not want to go there again.

I just did not the food at all. I have been getting my Chinese food at the Green Ginger in Tilton and the Long River Chinese Restaurant in Fryeburg, Maine. In fact I purchased take-out in Fryeburg yesterday.

Looking forward to trying this out again--I, too, have stayed away since trying it twice four years ago when we first bought in the area.

Green Ginger is good. I'll usually order from Fugaky in Plymouth; always plan to get take out when in the area that day. The lunch buffet is worth it as well.

With regard to Lee Wah.... We tried it last week and were very pleased. Keep it up.... consistency of taste will decide if I make it the "new" take out place.

How does it hold up when compared to J.P. China in Alton Bay?

Default Very Good

After having sub-par food at the original Lee Wah Restaurant, we started getting takeout from Tilton or Wolfeboro.

Based on the reviews here and other things I heard, we got takeout last night from the "new owners" Lee Wah. We just had a PuPu, fried rice and General Tso's chicken, but all were very good!

Just left Lee Wah after having lunch with the kiddos. It's no Jade Dragon (Merrimack), but it was much better than the last time we were there (three years ago) and we'll be back. (Server was also very nice)
