The staff were among the friendliest we experienced while in New York - very happy and very friendly. The food was absolutely stunning. We shared 4 dishes between the 4 of us which was easily enough, and not too expensive overall. Some of the other...More

Very tasty meals here, it's not like the old days in NYC where a take out meal was enough for two or three, it's very interestingly spiced but not basic. Not inexpensive at all.

Enjoyed our meal. Good variety to choose from. Pleasant service. We are still exploring and working out the NYC Asian cuisines... deep fried large spring rolls seem to be very popular as are dry fried greens

This was a chance find while walking down 42nd Street. The country-style tofu and baby eggplant (or aubergine to we Brits) in garlic sauce were amazing. Service was fast and pleasant. My friend was equally pleased with his meal.

Ollie's serves very good food at reasonable prices. The place is clean and bright with ample seating. This is my go to place when I want Chinese instead of Italian. Never disappoints.

In midttown / Hells Kitchen, there are several good Japanese restaurants and many Thai restaurants, but few Chinese. Ollie's is consistently good. The service is efficient. The menu will satisfy most taste. My vegan friends are very happy with what they find on the menu.

We have tried a few versions of Ollie’s in NYC, and this was our first time at this location. Lunch was fine, but we had expected more dumplings available. And not sure if they were not frozen before, so it was good, but not special.

We were walking by Ollie's and the aromas wafting out were so irresistible that instead of going for Portuguese like we had planned, we ended up having Sichuan. The meal took some time to appear but when it did, we finished it off post haste....More

Decent pre or post theater spot with average food. Ordered egg rolls, dumplings and shrimp with black bean sauce. Egg rolls were okay, dumplings were good and the shrimp in the black bean were small and over cooked. Other dishes might be better but nothing...More
