Not in any particular order, though the ones that I frequent are at the top (). That said I don’t frequent Indian restaurants that often because Deanna and the girls are not that partial to spicy food. There was a time, 25 years ago, when there was only one Indian restaurant in NH, in Nashua. Things have definitely improved though I was really getting worried that I might not be able to come up with 10. Many may not know this. Indian cuisine is more popular in the U.K. than Chinese. Going for a ‘curry’ is routine and a popular after-Pub activity.

The lists are in no particular order per se, other than those that have particular significance to me are likely to be closer to the top. Annotations at the bottom.


Chinese Buffet Restaurants In NH

.1. Great Buffet II — Portsmouth.

.2. Great Buffet — Manchester.

.3. Red Apple — Concord.

.4. New Hong Kong Buffet — Belmont.

.5. Imperial Buffet & Lounge — Claremont.

.6. Shang Hai Restaurant — Laconia.

.7. Sunrise Buffet — Lebanon.

.8. Grand Buffet — Nashua.

.9. Dynasty Restaurant — Rochester.

10. New Keene Buffet — Keene.



— current favorites. — we still go, but not that often.
— we used to frequent often, but not of late.
— have been there at least once.

The ‘Red Apple’ in Concord used to be our ‘go to buffet’. We used to go there at least once a month, on average. Then we just stopped. Not sure why. There was no particular reason. Now tend to go to ‘Great Buffet II’ in Portsmouth if we really hanker a buffet or happen to be in the area and need food. If we are looking for a buffet in Manchester we go to the ‘Great Buffet’ — which as far as I know, is the only bona fide game in town. Though I have not been for at least two years, I have to say that in terms of sheer quality of the food, the ‘Red Apple’ is probably head and shoulders above the others. The ‘Great Buffet II’ is more expansive but the food is at best average.
