This restaurant always seems empty whenever we go, but we have been 3 times now and each time the food has been very nice. We eat in and you get free prawn crackers with your menu. We had beef in black bean & green pepper as one of the main dishes and it was one of the best we have had!

Always greeted on arrival by the friendly staff. Happy to assist and make changes to dishes to suit. Quick service, good seating area and upstairs. Also a plus, are the toilets upstairs. Some small take-aways don't have these.

We were staying in Ambleside and decided on a takeaway one night. Good food and quick service. Not the best food Iv had but certainly not the worst!! Give it a go cheap and cheerful!

Had to get takeaway for a bunch of people, so decided to go for Chinese. Usually it means nice tasty food and big quantity. Not at Chinese Cottage.. I'm sorry to say but for £61 we did get only 2 bagful of food (including prawn crackers) which was just not enough! In Keswick I got similar amount for £25... Food wasn't extremely nice or bad, it was OK, but I'm not going back. Waitress was kind and helpful though.

We visit Ambleside every year and always pay a visit to the China Cottage, the food and service are always consistently good but we are generally the only ones in the restaurant ! To be fair, we tend to go on a Sunday so, maybe it is much busier at the weekend. Our only complaint..the lighting is way too bright and needs to be toned down a but - other than that - great !
