While the food is generally good, I am tired of seeing their menus pushed under the door and littering the hallways of my building. I have asked them numerous times to stop.

I have to say that guy who wrote in a review about the delivery guy making a face about the $3.00 tip is really a cheapskate. Who in their right mind would give a delivery guy a $3.00 tip? In Manhattan?? C'mon, these guys are not rolling in it and alot of them depend on tips for income. You couldn't cough up a $5.00 tip? You try riding your bike all nite in city traffic and deliver food.

Ordered food tonight 8PM, delivery gets to my place pretty quick, by 8:15. Total is $30.27. We pay the delivery guy $35 and ask for $2 back, and he grimaces at me. Was it because he didn't have change? No, he has change he says, and stares at me. I ask him if something is wrong, and he shakes his head angrily and tells me the total is $30.27. What's the problem? Is something wrong? The guy shakes his head and grudgingly takes out his money, complaining that it was $30.27. WTF? You rode your bike 3 blocks (literally, 3 blocks) from Ollie's to here, on a nice night, and you're going to give me a hard time, and be nasty about it, because I gave you about a $3 tip? That delivery guy has some cojones. Seriously. Thanks Ollie's. but get your bike guys in order.

I am amazed when I hear people write that the "hot and sour soup tastes funny" here because Ollie's is the ONLY PLACE IN TOWN where "hot and sour soup" (suanla tang) is made RIGHT folks! Why is it so different? It's CHINA CHINESE FOOD--not the Americanized swill you Americans are used to being fed! This food is EXACTLY what you find in BEIJING, SHANGHAI, and other major Chinese cities--and VERY HARD to get in the United States! Do they make some dishes for the American palette...sure! But there are plenty of dishes like suanla tang and scallion pancakes that are perfect for those from China or just know their REAL CHINESE food. If you ever wonder why this place is so packed, it's because so many people from China insist on coming to OLLIES for their meals. Only OLLIES will do! This is the REAL STUFF! True to any truly authentic restaurant, if you really know your China Chinese cuisine, you can ask for things off menu and get it! Unlike Americanized places, this one easily gives you HEALTHY BROWN RICE--just ask! They are happy to adjust your order for food allergies and your taste and give you fast service. And of course...the bottomless pot of tea! QING HE CHA! If you love the REAL STUFF--this is the ONLY PLACE IN TOWN! I spent many years in a Chinese family and learned to love the real stuff and hate American-Chinese. Ollies is my favorite restaurant in New York. Once you learn the difference, you will never go back to "fast food" American swill again! Ollies will be your favorite Chinese place too!

Food was waaay too salty, service was poor and when I left a small tip I was blocked from leaving by the servers who admonished me that tip was not included in the bill.
