I have been going here for years. They have reasonable prices for both dinner and for the lunch specials. In the evening you get free white wine with your meal. I especially like the green beans and the cold sesame noodles. You can also get brown rice with your meal which I enjoy. Some times you have to wait for... More

Chinese cuisine adapted for west cultures (fast food like) with standard meals made of chicken, beef etc. I prefer this type - so I left the restaurant well feed and satisfy. Portions are nicely sized, so like explained by others if you eat appetizer, one portion could be enough even for couple. One of the least expensive meals that I... More

This is a very popular place with excellent food and extremely affordable rates and great service. On a Saturday night with impromptu dinner without reservations we were immediately seated and had a vegetarian delicious dinner with tofu, eggplant, snow peas and mixed vegetables with lemon chicken for the none vegetarians. All for under $50 for all of us.

Loyal customers for more than 25 years. This place has amazing food. My favorite is red or green curry chicken/shrimp , because has Chinese eggplant. The red has pineapple and re green on has string beans instead. Either one is amazing. Pat Thai noodles are really good. Dumplings in sesame oil are The BEST. Friendly and very affordable.

Went to this Chinese resturaunt on 26th August and we were all very impressed with the quality of the food. You get complimentary wine and the cost was very reasonable compared to other resturaunts nearby. Will go again while on our trip.

We walked from our hotel, the NYLO, just around the corner. Very close quarters during busy times and tables close to each other. If you aren't interested in the free table wine, take an order to go and go sit outside on a bench somewhere to people watch or take it back to your room. It was traditional Chinese food... More

I had a few days in the city on my own and decided to get Chinese food to take back to the apartment for dinner. A 'near me now' search brought me to The Cottage. Being on my own, I only got one dish, Eggplant in Garlic Sauce (with brown rice). It was delicious. Nice big, fresh slices of garlic.... More

We stayed at the NYLO Hotel which is 1 minute walk to The Cottage. The food was excellent and the meal was the best priced/value for money that we had during our 5 day stay in New York. The service was good with no fuss. We had two mains including a starter and including the tip it came to £30... More

I've been eating at the Cottage Restaurant for 30+ years and always enjoy the Sichuan cuisine, the ambiance and the staff. Peter, the owner, goes out of his way to make everyone welcome - as demonstrated by his free glass of wine to all patrons. The prices are very affordable and the meals are consistently tasty. The informal atmosphere frequently... More

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.
