“China Cottage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Excellent food, very good service. This is one of the best Chinese Restaurants in the Dayton area. My family especially likes the crab Rangoon.

“Very tasty meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

My family eats in as well as carries out from the Centerville location at least once a month. The inside of the restaurant is beautiful, very restful. Service is fast and friendly. Carry out is very easy as well. Call in, they give you the price and in 15 - 20 minutes the food is ready for you to pick up at the bar. Personally I really like the crab ragoon, the cashew chicken, and the hot and sour soup[.

“Good. Very good.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Topped off a day out after going to a matinee film. We had potstickers, kung pao chicken, and scallops and broccoli. Excellent service, very clean, and good value for the money. You can't ask for much more! The only down side is the wait--if you go after 5pm, prepare for a long wait. Fortunately, they have a bar.

“Cottage chicken would be my last meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

I've been coming here, on average once a week, since around 1997. My favorite location is actually the one in Springboro as they tend to make the food a level spicier. I've eaten hundreds of times at the Kettering and Trotwood locations since that's where I've mainly lived and worked.

Service is great, atmosphere is nice, but the food ... oh the food. The Cottage Chicken, basically General Tsao's with a bold orange sauce and orange zest, is my all-time favorite food, period. The chicken is always crispy and fresh, and if you ask you can choose between white meat, dark meat, or both.

The Walnut Chicken is HUGE (more than enough for two hungry adults), with a dark, heavy feel that's perfect on a cold day. The crab rangoon is very balanced and always extremely fresh.

Best of all, if I call for takeout at the corner of Garber & Main St, it's ready by the time I get there. :->
