If you need Chinese...

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.

This place is permanently closed. ! The locals told us the Health Department shut them down ? This is Chinese Resturant the next town over. There are two great taverns near this place. Sherman's Tavern and Cooley's Tavern. Great Beer and food at each.

When I got my food I found drywall, and a screw in it! Very disappointed. It wasn't very clean when I walked in, and not a very inviting place.

My husband and I stopped in for a quick lunch, and had I paid attention to the place before we ordered I would have walked out. This place is absolutely filthy. From the floor, to the counter, to the walls, everything. They opened a glass door fridge to get our cans of soda and it was so dirty you couldn't... More

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.

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
