Aspen, Colorado's local dining guide.
Outstanding Food - Service even when the restaurant was busy: As an eating "institution" Little Ollie's is one of our favorites. This winter visit Jan/Feb, ate here several times: hot plates and very fresh food made exactly as we ordered (Fried Duplings and the Hot-Spicy Soup can be rated as high as the L.O.'s of olden times; Country Veggie/Tofu was the best that we have ever had; two chicken dishes were excellent;
Great Chef in the kitchen, good service in front room...just what you want when you eat out in Aspen. Try it yourself!
Great food & wonderful service! Very family friendly.
Went there for the second time and was absolutely great both times. Great resturant and great food!
Gave them another chance after ording over phone and was called a liar about what I recieved the last time before that.Back to my recent order. Get the food and it was dried out not even close to fresh. Didnt get a fortune cookie after paying the super high price. Overall not good at all. Will not go back
Simply terrible. Not only was the food un-edible, but the owner made me return it to get a refund.
Not the first bad experience at Little Ollies, but definitely the last. This place seems to be hit and miss. I have received the wrong order multiple times for delivery and take out. Skimpy portions for the price and service within the restaurant is slow. Have been disappointed one too many times to return. Not worth the little headache!
I have eaten here many times. It's one of those places that really grow on you because of the service. The staff is friendly and direct like family. The food is delicious and more than satisfies any craving for an Asian dish... well, except maybe Indian. Delivery is fast. All in all, I'd say it's a gem of a place for Aspen that I hope would stay in business a long time.
Disgusting. No flavor, over priced, barely get any meat in order all veggies, my Panang dish had no taste what so ever.
Don't even bother. Both "Chinese" restaurants in Aspen suck. Go to Ho Palace in Basalt.
Oh and while the delivery driver called to find out where we were, he was chomping on food in my ear. Not even trying to hide it, I thought he was gonna choke. It was disgusting.
Little Ollies is my "go to" take out meal when I dont have time to make dinner! The price can't be beat, and the food is fresh and consistent. I am a bit of a health nut, so I usually go for the Bamboo Steamed Vegetables with Chicken. However, when I decided to splurge,it is a toss up between the Pad Thai and the Lo Mein. The Soups are excellent too!
Awful. The delivery couldn't find my house and I had to drive out to meet him. The potstickers were OK, but the Volcano shrimp was inedible. (Content removed)

Another favorite, especially at lunch is Little Ollies/Tang, a place chef'd by Chinese masters but offering all sorts of Asian food, from noodle dishes to wok plates. This year Colette had a tender chicken with spicy basil sauce and I the pho with an excellent grade of beef (so often, pho places serve up the lowest grade beef, thinking you won't notice) and terrific fresh and tasty herbs, etc., (scallions, cilantro, parsley, basil, bean sprouts and fresh hot green chilies). With a bottle of wine our bill was $51.17 before tip.

I can't keep up with the name changes, Little Ollies, China Thai, Tang and back to LIttle Ollies. During the last name change the menu has changed. (Prices are cheaper! yippee! Also Little Ollie's serves noodle bowls. I tried the Korean spicy noodle bowl with shrimp. I enjoyed the noodles and the broth but the shrimp were a little overcooked. The bowl for dinner cost around $11, but there are also cheaper noodle bowls ($7.95).
The service was quick and friendly. I might have to try another noodle bowl.
