    • Editor's Description
      Cotton's chilled-out villa atmosphere is also the place to go if you're not used to Chinese food and don't plan on becoming acclimated. They've done a good job of creating a pretty spot where foreigners can feel like they are in any city. The old outdoor dining area is now a covered patio, but there's still space to eat outside. Sunday brunch available.

    • Out for an evening bike ride along Anting Lu we stumbled upon Cotton’s. The restaurant is set in a refurbished colonial style villa, with an outdoor dining area lined with lush bamboo trees and strings of fairy lights. It’s a charming space ideal for either a quiet dinner or casual drinks with a bigger group.

      The menu is pretty basic. Perhaps one step above the complexity of a pub menu. One menu is mix of largely Italian inspired dishes and the other is straight seafood. They seem to cover a lot, so you’re bound to find something that tickles your fancy. If you feel like classic Italian? They’ve got a good selection of pizzas and pastas. Healthy? Nice selection of hearty, grainy salads. Wine n platter kind of night? Lots of options to create an antipasto spread.

      Dishes of mention:

      There weren’t any stand out dishes and yet I still walked out of there feeling satisfied . I guess you could say no dud dishes is a win?

      One of the things that did stand out though was the service. Staff were attentive without being overbearing and the meals were timed well.

      Overall the food wasn’t anything overly inspiring but hey there is always a time and place for these kind of restaurants. Like those weeks when you’ve maybe overdone the chilli oil and your stomach is begging you to chill the f out but you’ve still got to turn up to that dinner with friends? This is a good option with a nice atmosphere and great service.
