We decided to eat here because of the good reviews on Trip Advisor. We won't be back. The food wasn't bad, but it wasn't memorable. The flavors were muted, the fried rice was soggy and the service was slow.

The service was outstanding, language difficulties aside. Most of the family enjoyed their dinners, I ordered the General Tsao's Chicken which was so salty that I threw away the leftovers. It is clean except for the men's room which was disgusting. The owners are on premise and are very nice. A bit pricey.

5-20-16 two others and I had lunch at China Cottage on I-10. It was OK, a little over priced for what we got. They started cleaning our table before we were finished. Had to ask them to bring back some items. Not very professional.

Absolute best chinese in the area. I have eaten at most of the chinese restaurants in Katy and am bummed out that I just found this one. I will not go to any other after finding this.

Flavors drowned out by thickeners. Soups and entrees were flat flavored due to use of some kind of starch. I ordered a "spicy" dish and was warned by the server that it was spicy. I confirmed I liked spicy food. Once again the flavor was non existent and was as spicy as milk. As an aside the restaurant also has... More

There food is consistently good. The service is superb and it's an easy in and out. This is the one place I've found that serves Sizzling Rice Soup. They have the usual offerings, but you will be pleased with the quality every time.

China Cottage is the BEST!! LOVE their Kung Pao Chicken and Pork Fried Rice! Kids love their Egg Rolls and Crab Rangoon. We have been eating here for years, and everything we have ordered has been excellent. We have tried several other Chinese restaurants in Katy, and we've always been disappointed... they don't come close to China Cottage.

We had the family menu where you get egg roll, soup, and rice with the entree. It was delicious. Reasonable price and the egg roll was one of the best I have had from a restaurant.
