We started coming here because our kitchen was under construction. We continue to visit because the food is fresh, reliable and not over sauced. It doesn't taste too salty or greasy. We particularly like the generous vegetables in some of the dishes.

We usually do takeout here - sometimes go to eat at the restaurant. My favorite is the Ginger Chicken with Green Beans which is reliably good. The chicken is flavorful, nicely spicy. The beans are fresh and crisp. I also frequently order the Hot and Sour soup which is also very very good. My husband likes the Cold Noodles which... More

Not my fav Chinese restaurant around but it's good for what choices in the area. Not too greasy and pretty fresh. Prices are average

My husband suggested we celebrate the new year with Chinese food. So, we headed out to a restaurant in a shopping center in Millis he has seen on his way to and from work and we were very surprised with the food selection and taste. The store front suggests this was a take-out only place, but it is not. There... More

Nothing bad, except maybe the lack of any kind of music so the emptiness of the restaurant is accentuated (we were the only people there most of our meal except for two people who came in to pick up take-out orders). But, nothing really good, either. Fair food, fair service, fair décor. I would not mind going there if it... More

Not oily like many chinese restaurants. We love our Chinese food for sure, and have sampled nearly every Chinese restaurant in area, and this is our favorite hands down. I have probably gone here every other week at least for 10 years so suffice to say I am a fan (because they deserve the loyalty). Super Fresh, always hot and... More

Nice place for Chinese food and for takeout! Clean and quiet, even though at times it may look like not many people in there but don't let that fool you! They also do quite a bit of takeout orders, the locals here knows where to get great Chinese food :-) The food is fresh, not greasy and their service is... More

Always very pleased when we have ordered takeout from the Lilac House. Everything is packaged nicely nice and hot and fresh, and they provide steamed white rice along with all the sauces that are needed.

Small seating restaurant in a small shopping plaza. Always clean with an inviting atmosphere. Large menu selection especially a lot of shrimp dishes. Entrees seem to be fresher and not greasy. Service is excellent but they seem to also have a large take out business. We eat here often and have never been disappointed.

The Lilac House is an excellent spot to sample Asian food. We're not experts so we enjoy trying a variety of selections. We've visited the Lilac House many times and have always been pleased with the food and the service. They feature a wide variety with both spicy and tamer offerings. We especially enjoy starting the meal with soup. The... More
