On Sunday after church found restaurant with few patrons. Ordered lemonade--disappointed, it was a bottle of Minute Maid. I chose the sampler of appetizers--really enjoyed them. They came out with a warming pot with beef sticks, shrimp rolls, crab Rangoon , seaweed chicken rolls, and spring rolls--all crisp and delicious. For main course had triple ingredients seafood--shrimp, scallops, chicken with... More

I normally don't really care for Chinese restaurants, but this was different. We came in for lunch and were seated. A few minutes later, we placed our orders and the food came out really fast. For the price, the food was absolutely DELICIOUS! Our waitress was really cool too, she was super friendly and we had a conversation with her,... More

Never will you be disappointed at China Cottage , at either location. Consistently good food and super service. Creamy Chicken Soup is the BEST but only at lunch.

China Cottage has been the absolute best Chinese restaurant in Dayton for as long as I can remember. They have three locations and we have frequented them all. We always start with Crab Rangoon but have been known to get the Pao Pao Combination which is an assortment of appetizers. My favorite dish is the Orange Beef which I aways... More

For American Chinese, this is as best as it can be. The food is fresh, delicious, and tasty. We love to go here whenever we feel like Chinese food.

This is "our" Chinese place. We don't go anywhere else unless we're out of town. Everything is good. Egg rolls come to the table the temperature of molten lava. Sesame beef is crispy and amazing, lemon chicken isn't always on the menu but they'll make it anyway, sweet and sour entrees are wonderful. Take out is Super fast. The restaurant... More

Authentic Chinese good, some even like home cooked dishes. Lunch specials are good and reasonably priced, we add a large bowl of soup noodle with pickled cabbage roots and finely cut pork (good for two people sharing). There are many other choices, with "American" and "Chinese" menus.

food tasted off, like the chicken had gone bad and the place looked like it could use some sanitizing and some fresh staff.

This meal was a delight. The appetizer, Crab (made from fish) Rangoon, was a crispy Won ton filled with mostly cream cheese. The slightly sweet red sauce is perfect to enhance the flavor. The dry braised eggplant was the tastiest dish. We got it with #1 spice level. That was spicy enough to have a kick, but no burning tastebuds.... More

We had Sunday lunch here with a group of eight. They took a reservation for us, which was helpful. Everyone enjoyed their meals except one; he thought the chicken in his dish was overlooked/dry. They are willing to adjust spice level or swap sauces to customize dishes to your taste.
