Went here for a meal for the first time last night and loved it! The meal was absolutely delicious, we didn't have to wait long either. Staff were very friendly and efficient. I would definitely recommend this place and hopefully be back again soon.

Not sure why there is bad reviews of this place always enjoy the food. Often get takeaway and when we eat in we always get the taster menu which is great value and eat as much as you like.

It is well seeing that a sign at the sign of the building is now so old you cannot see what is says. The whole building appears dilapidated. Food lacks any quality or flavour. Had two takeaways and one sit in. In no rush to return.

Been here several times & also had take away. Food is good & service ok without being intrusive. Not the most modern of restaurants but my friend & I like the food so we like coming here to catch up. Maybe not for a special meal but it's as the title suggests decent place to eat.

Menu offers buffet with a difference. For a fixed price you have a large selection to choose from. Service typically quick b but food very tasty.

I know that when you eat out, it is the food that counts and while the food at China Cottage is good, the restaurant hasn't really changed in over 20 plus years. The menu gives you all the 'usual suspects' but it is not cheap. I really think to be successful in the restaurant game, you have to speculate to... More

Had a lovely relaxing family evening at the China cottage. The staff and service are exceptional. Food delicious. We went for the small plate option. Would definitely recommend

The owners seem to be too busy to recognise the very shabby unkempt state of this once sought after restaurant in Bothwell village. Food nice, prices high but there again it is Bothwell so I think its par for the course really. I'm not sure I would hurry back.
