I've been ordering takeout from Chelsea Cottage for 20 years. Good food, great value. When I have friends over, I often bet them how long the wait for the takeout will be. I bet 7 minutes from hanging up my phone to the door buzzing with the delivery. I almost always win my bet. I only live a block away but 7 minutes! How do they do it? One word of caution: the service in the restaurant on a weekday lunch is nasty. The owners, on the other hand, are wonderful.

I ordered an hour and a half ago and still no food. I asked the man on the phone where my food was and he told me to be patient. I literally live 4 blocks away and have ordered from here a million times. Not any more! Slow service!

The food here is fresh and good. It is old style chinese food. They have very good fried tofu, I usually order the make your own dish with four items, and ask for extra ginger. The people here work really hard day after day and the food is tasty and a good value. Not trendy, just good, local food. They good improve the vegetables they put in dishes but after 20 years of coming here I guess you could say I like the food!

I woke up this a.m.hankering for Dim-Sum. I thought I would try out a rest. in my new neighb. I was born in NYC and have recently moved to Chelsea. I have always boasted about NYC food @ reasonable prices. However, I have been so dissappointed w/ the Chelsea area. It is bad food /bad prices. I work in Chinatown area so I am somewhat familiar w/ "real"/flavorful Chinese. Well unfortunately,I didn't find it at CC's. Pro: Prompt, & an added surprise was two black tea tea bags. Good size jumbo shrimp Cons: Shrimp w/ Brocolli dish had a fishy smell /too little sauce and bland flavor. Brocolli w/ shrimp sauce was...lets just say I finally decided to eat it like a soup; specifically egg drop soup w/shrimp. There was no lobster sauce and bland tast. General Tso's chicken - looked like it was made with whatever ingredients where at hand (like pieces of cabbage?green peppers?)There where no red chili peppers; none, nada, zip. This was actually my fav cause the chicke pieces where well seasoned. The wong tong soup was blah with two tiney dumpling(not won tong) The eggplant/ stuffing was not too bad but I've had much better. Lets just say I shoulda gotten my butt out the door and gone downtown ...

I really don't want to write about something bad, but I got very disappointed by this.... I really like dim sum, and I was very happy when I found this page. But my most favorite dim sum dish shrimp dumpling of this place was very mushy, too soft, weird flavor, and couldn't find any shrimp!! So sad....

I think I ordered General Tso Tofu 7 days straight one time during Christmas. Simply the best in the neighbourhood; prompt friendly service; and a great value. They're basically always open too for those late nights in the office. Super.
