    Rude, yes, but quick and not bad food

    Agree with other reviewer: rudeservice (on phone and in person). I order from them regularly, and the rudeness is pretty consistent. On the phone, I'm often asked to hold, hung up on, yelled at for trying to vary an order. Delivery people pound loudly on my (single) office door (they've come many times and know it's a single office). They scowl and grumble at 20% tips. However, they are relatively fast (in the Chinese delivery world) and, most important to me, they can actually find my office without a problem. Food is decent: not great, but much better than a lot of the Chinese places. I order moo shu vegetables often, and it's quite good. Regular dishes with vegetables and jumbo shrimp or chicken always look very good: quite fresh. Meat is fatty and low quality (but I find that almost everywhere). Vegetable dishes (i.e. without meat or fish) are nice and crunchy (i.e. not overcooked), but tend to be too sweet (they use a lot of heavy sweet sauces). If you ask for anything that you design yourself (or sesame noodles), they'll give it to you steamed with sauce on the side, and the result is pretty bad. If you want much better food and nicer service, try Pearl's (but they're slow and won't be able to find difficult delivery locations).

    Improved in the past few years

    After it was renovated, the food became better as well. also, they deliver quickly and are fairly cheap. for diet food -- get the grasp at good luck.

    Reliable, Fast and Always Fresh

    We look forward to ordering from Ollies at Columbia. The food is always good and the portions allow us to have some for lunch the next day. The atmosphere is nothing great, so we usually stay home. We love the one in the theatre district, but this is close to home.

    Don't order take out

    The food is much better as eat in, than take out. Delivery is too long. We ordered the beef in orange flavor and the general tso's chicken. The beef had too much breading on and so you couldn't taste the meat. The general tso's chicken was a bit soggy and didn;t have enough broccoli in it. We were not happy, needless to say.

    Always a standby

    Ollie's will never fail you on their steamed vegetable dumplings (I could, and sometimes, do, live off them) and anything in their garlic sauce (I usually get the tofu with broccoli and peanuts in garlic sauce, and I ask for little oil, and it is still drenched). My only hesistance whenever I order Ollie's is that somehow a o piece (or two) of meat will make it into my otherwise vegetarian dishes, so beware of that. Like most Chinese places, delivery is quick. For me and many other undergrads in the Columbia area, Ollie's is our "comfort " food.

    Pretty Good

    The quality of food is consistently higher here than at most other Asian food places around here, and the people who answer the phone are slightly (not much, but slightly) nicer. So I'd still try Ollie's. The lemon chicken is nice -- thin strips and a tart, tasty sauce, and the bean curd usually has a nice, smokey grilled flavor.
