When back in NYC always eat atollie's! Always a good sign for the best Asian food is to eat where the Asians eat. They can chose from many Asian restaurants. Often I'll be the only "round eye'". If you like a broad selection this is the place.

Wow. I have never had General Tso's chicken that tasted like nothing. Until NOW. It had absolutely no flavor. Another person at the table had the same problem with their sesame beef. What a disappointing meal.

Without a doubt my favorite of all the Ollie's. The hot and sour soup was great and the shrimp dumplings were excellent and delicate (thought the sauce tasted terrible). The chow fun was very good and compleatly different from the Ollie's on 67th street which wasn't so great. I had a very attentive server though it was quite early and not very packed.

Vegetarians and Non-Vegetarians will enjoy this restaurant. Wonderful for a group or family. Food for all. Service can be rushed during timings just before theater performances. Close enough to Signature Theater and other spaces all the way on the westside and 42nd. Make a reservation. Food is spicy and flavorful. Make sure you stress NOT SPICY or MILD so that you don't get surprised with a too-spicy dish.

I learned after eating here that this ollie's has a menu different from the others w the same name. The menu offers a tremendous selection, w a Szichuan focus. Good quality and certainly seems authentic, as reflected by lots of Chinese-speaking clients the night I was there, but BEWARE: dishes that are supposed to be spicy are marked on the menu w one, two, or three peppers, depending on their spiciness level. I ordered Szichuan pickled vegetables as a side, which had NO pepper marking, but nonetheless comes coated in that orange chili oil. And the fried lamb w cumin? It had one out of the possible three peppers on the menu...and I couldn't even taste the cumin, because was one of the hottest dishes I'd ever eaten, and mind you, I LIKE it hot & spicy! It had literally dozens of dried red chili pods, which I carefully plucked out and set aside...but it still made my eyes water, and practically set fire to the lint in my navel! "Oh, that's MILD!" the waiter laughed. I shudder to think what the two- and three-pepper dishes are like!

The food quality post-move is definitely different. I used to order the same dishes, such as Taiwan mai fun noodles. It used to be delicious and authentic at the Times Square location. After the move, it was clear the recipe changed. The noodles were different and it tasted like cheap take out. Also other favorites were no longer on the menu. I wish they would go back to the old reliable delicious food! Maybe I'll give them another try and see if they've changed recently.
