Main House is my go-to restaurant for takeout Chinese food in Groton. I typically get the house fried rice, some teriyaki or chicken wings, and some port egg foo young. It's all very good, but I have to say that the egg foo young is really the best.

The best I can say is that the food was made quickly and there was a wide range of options for both Chinese and Thai The rest of the story is that,while the food was not bad, it was not particularly good either. I ordered 4 entrees that included some of their Thai offerings. The twice cooked pork was ok... More

The old chef must have left because the food at Main House is much better than it was. I am a Chinese food snob so for me to say the food is good enough for me says something.

The food and the service are always good and consistent. The food is fresh. There are tables, but we always get take out.

Main House has always served up consistent and decent quality Chinese and Thai fare. The portions are large, the service is good, and the prices are moderate for the area. There is very little seating at the restaurant itself, so Main House is a take-out choice rather than eat in.

Main House has a few tables, but it is primarily a take-out restaurant. Family favorites include their lo mein, Peking ravioli, rice noodles, double cooked pork and moo shi. Everyone who works there has been very kind and the food is typically ready when promised. A solid local option for Chinese food.

Owned by the same people who own the Tea Cafe in Pepperell. No real atmosphere but this is your basic Chineese takeout place. The food is high quality and the place is extremely clean. The people who work there are quite nice.

We have been enjoying take out from Main House at least once a month for years. The dinner size combination plates are large enough for two and include two appetizer choices. The Moo Shi dishes are excellent and very generous portions. Be sure to order extra pancakes.
