We wanted Chinese/noodles close to the Hilton times square. Our concierge recommended Ollie's and we were not disappointed. The wonton soup was amazing. I could have eaten several bowls. The other items we had were good also. I had pepper steak that was supposed to be a bit spicy but it was very mild. my daughter had noodles and my... More

We had a take away as our hotel was fairly close. The food came quickly and came with plates and cutlery that was really helpful as we didn't have these with us on our travels. We shared the spare ribs which had a lots of pork on, had the Orange crispy chicken, brown rice and steamed buns. As ever had... More

Walked in without a reservation and had to make a Broadway show. Got seated immediately and received prompt, friendly service. Décor and ambiance are not really part of the package here, just good quality and good quantity of Chinese food. We got exactly what we were looking for in the moment.

The concierge of our hotel suggested this fantastic Chinese restaurant. They serve you green tea upon arrival at the table. Gigantic portions, we ordered fried rice with chinese sausage and rice noodles with curry which were at least for 4 persons. We add also an eggroll as starter at it was three times bigger than the normal European dimensions. So... More

If you don't expect too much, you can eat very well here inexpensively. In fact, we had so much food that we brought home an entire 2nd meal and the whole dinner was $40. for two people. First we had two different soups and be warned, they are so huge that they are a meal in and of themselves. Scallion... More

We fancied Chinese food so popped in here. All I can say is that from the moment they sat us at a table, they made us feel that we weren't welcome! They took our order as if it were a hassle, then threw our plates on the table Food came, there were items that we hadn't ordered and sent then... More

This is not your average Chinese restaurant, it is a haven of very very good food. The portions are good although the food doesn't come out fast fast (maybe because I was hungry). The food is very well made and presented and tastes more like home Chinese cooking with a few friends over than a restaurant per se. Ordered a... More

We were staying at a hotel just down the street and needed something quick for Dinner. After walking around for a while I stopped into Ollie's and ordered the Lemon Chicken to go. It was still Hot and crunchy after taking it back to our room. The one meal fed two people. It was one of the best take outs... More

I am a longtime patron of Ollie's, first on the Upper West Side, then at Lincoln Center. i always looked forward to a meal there, because the cooking was so good. But this Times Square location seems to be catering to the Times Square crowd instead. Noisy, crowded, sloppy service, mediocre food. Will not dine here again.

We were staying at a NYC hotel on 10th Ave., and called in an order of eight dishes from Ollie's. Ordering was smooth from their online menu, and though they said the order would come within a half hour, it only took abojt 15 minutes. Came complete with paper plates, utensils, packets of sauce, napkins -everything we needed. One of... More
