We have tried this restaurant a few times, and each time it is about the same. The food flavor is okay, but portions are small and the consistency is a bit thin. It is a small-run operation, and they are friendly with good prices.

Well we might be too demanding here, but we weren't crazy for it. But we wanted Chinese, so in a pinch, it will satisfy your craving.

A small, old style tile floor restaurant with diner type tables. The food is lovely and the Boneless spareribs are to die for.

Nice folks. Tasteless, overpriced, poorly cooked Chinese food. Drive the extra 10 minutes and go one town over for great Chinese food.

Foo Kin John is always the number one choice for Chinese food in Cooperstown. The atmosphere of the restaurant isn't the best, but the food and the service are always phenomenal.

This is the only place you will find Chinese cooking in Cooperstown proper. Restaurant has table seating; service is fairly prompt. A big part of the business is take-out. Food is okay; not up to New York City standards. Varied menu with spicy and mild dishes - the usual Chinese fare. Sometimes the owner's children take your order on the... More

The name made me laugh, but other than that, it was not a good experience. I should have known when we walked in to find not another person there eating.

Disgusting food. Fried mystery meat in tasteless mystery sauces, thrown together without care or concern of the quality. A five year-old at the cash register and lots of yelling from the kitchen... where is Gordon Ramsay when you need him? Most of the food is unidentifiable.. cleanliness questionable.
