    $1 tip?

    In reference to the review directly below: How can you even think about tipping a deliveryman 5%, and then get annoyed that he wouldn't accept it! too would be insulted if you attempted to tip me $1! These people live off these tips. Stop embarrassing yourself.

    We at the job have decided to boycott

    I have never eaten in the restaurant. We used to order to deliver to the job because they are the only neighborhood chinese restaurant that make scallion pancakes that are delicious, but we've decided to boycott. It was one of those days when everyone was short on cash but ordering out was still cheaper than buying food from the cafeteria and cleaner that the cart on the corner. The order came to approximately $23, not a lot of money by any means but what we had at the time. We even came up with an extra $1 for the tip :) Well, when the delivery man showed up 1/2 hour later (usually takes Cafe Swish 15 minutes and they are right next door dot Ollie's) I went downstairs to give him the money. He wouldn't take it because it was only a $1 tip. I told him that was all we had...he called the restaurant and after speaking to them in Chinese for a bit handed me the phone. The lady on the phone told me that we couldn't tip him with $1. My first instinct was to tell him right then and there to forget him and the food but the lunch wasn't just for me so I decided to confer with my co-workers first and told him to wait. They decided it was too late to order lunch from somewhere else so they dug around and came up with another $1 to get get the lunch. We haven't ordered from them since. One of my co-workers said she had gone to the restaurant with her daughters and left a $1 tip on the table because that was all she had...the waitress followed her and told her to keep her money, rolled her eyes and walked away. I miss the scallion pancakes but their attitude is sickening and I refuse to give them my money for that oily food.

    Poor service

    I quite like the restaurant due to its food, atmosphere and proximity to Columbia. Nonetheless, the service is terrible. If you ever do something that delays their time, they will look at you differently, grunt or even give you a rude answer!!! I don't plan to go back to this restaurant. In addition, there are other good options close by that treat you muuuuuuuuch better!!!

    Yum

    It was fantastic food - the staff is a little "hurried" but they leave you alone so it doesn't really matter.

    Do they want customers?

    The food isn't spectacular at Ollies but I occasionally eat here b/c it is open late and across the street from Columbia. I have noticed the huge decline in ratings for this location. I believe the problem is a result of the way the customers are treated. While they've never been friendly, they have gotten so rude over the past few years. It's almost like they don't want customers. I don't understand how they would behave like they do and expect people to return or stay without walking out. I walked out the other night b/c i just couldn't take it any longer. i walked in at midnight (they close at 2AM) b/c i was up at columbia and it was open. the minute i walked in, they told me 'cash only'. when i asked them if this was a new rule or if the machines were broken, they wouldn't answer. perhaps they didn't understand but after i politely stood there (looking confused) for about a minute waiting for them to answer, they said it was ok. i'm guessing they like to close down the credit card machines 2 hrs before closing and just expect the customers to comply. it's kind of crappy but if they were nicer in general and didn't behave as others have described here, i might be able to forgive it. so, as they told me it was okay, i walked out. i don't need any favors from them. i have to tell you that not one table was taken in that restaurant. there was one person waiting for an outgoing order and that was it. this is very rare for ollie's to be empty at midnight during the semester. they are digging their own hole after they spent tons of money to renovate.

    okay

    They have great vegetarian dumplings and I highly recommend their Yung Yung deluxe. But I must caution you: They are rude on the phone. Sometimes I order from somewhere else because I don't feel like dealing with them. They get frustrated when you can't understand what they are saying, even though they speak too quickly and too poorly for any reasonable person to understand. I order from them when I am desperate (they deliver pretty late), but I would never set foot in there and deal with their obnoxious service. Some people complain about speed of delivery but I happen to think they are really fast. The delivery guys will sneer at even the most generous tip, even though I live right across the street.

    Get off my back

    Ollies is fast and fairly inexpensive. However, the servers stand over your table once you are finished eating and nearly push you out. It is very uncomfortable!
