Pretty Good!

We have been staying at the NYLO and after a long day of being in the Financial District and touring everything possible, we wanted some Chinese food within a short walking distance. The restaurant is very small but the portions are BIG! I had the shrimp Lo Mein and tried my bf's irange chicken. We... read more

While this isn't authentic Chinese (it's american chinese), it is first rate american chinese food. Very inexpensive ($8-$12 per dish) and huge portions. It's a very small restaurant so make a reservation if you can. We went with a local who called ahead and we got a table as soon as we walked in and the staff recognized him. You... More

We happened upon this restaurant while in the neighborhood. It was crowded but they found us a table quickly. The service was interesting--it took awhile to get a menu, but once we got that going, it was quite prompt. The best dish we had was the spicy dumplings in hot oil--outstanding dish! I would go again for sure.

Wish he had just walked past now Staff were very abrupt when myself and my partner entered. The decor is dated and I did question the cleanliness when I started to look around, but thought we would give the place a chance as we did fancy a Chinese meal. Within less than a minute I was asked what food I... More

We were in the mood for Chinese food, so we went to The Cottage, unfortunately the food was just ok. The food tasted very bland absolutely no flavor. We were also given a carafe of white wine with two wine glasses, but we were unable to enjoy it, as we were given glasses with lipstick on them, so gross since... More

My wife and I live nearby, have been coming here many times (30?) each year for at least 15 years, and we almost invariably compare other restaurants unfavorably with it, either for the cost of their wine (more that zero), or the cost or quality of their food. Friendly staff, to boot! We get the Pad Thai a lot recently,... More

We have been there twice one for lunch one for dinner. Will surely go there again. Lunch menu is very good and very affordable. Dinner selection and price is also very affordable. I like the taste and food in this place but with so many Chinese options in the city I wouldn't travel to eat there. If you are around... More

Considering how many Chinese restaurants there are in the city, there is really no reason to choose this place. In fact, there are many reasons NOT to eat there. Let's start with the white wine which is served with dinner; it taste like apple cider gone bad. You will do well to avoid it at all costs. I ordered a... More

I read the review of this institution on the Upper West Side. I was really in the mood for Chinese. Was I disappointed. I had the Pork Chow Fun. The Pork was not roasted, as it should have been, but boiled. No taste and tough. My wife had the lunch of pork and Chinese vegetables. Again boiled pork. They say... More

We found this asian restaurant wandering in Upper West Side. The room is not very renovated and table in very simply prepared but alright in general, the waitress very fast, the food very good especially Chow Fun, a real unexpected chinese food for us. In general we had a very good dinner, better than other more valued asian restaurant in... More

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
