Awesome food

Great atmosphere and delicious food. Not very gluten free friendly so I splurged and cheated.

Had the cane sugar drumsticks, the mango chicken and the curry chicken.

I didn't really like the drumsticks but the curry was very good and the mango was excellent.

Loved the service here.

The food is amazing

The food is great, but the whole menu isn’t entirely vegan. The bubble tea has dairy.

Pros: Lunch Specials are great., The virgin pina colada is amazing., Lo mein is delicious.

Cons: Bubble tea is not vegan.

I called the restaurant knowing it's not too far from me and the fact that they kept cancelling my order could not have been personal.

I asked if they deliver to my neighborhood. I gave them my zip code and the woman in the phone says "sure, we deliver there." And I said GREAT! Because I was told it was too far before but I'm not that far away and this restaurant comes up as the CLOSEST one when I go to GrubHub and DoorDash.

She told me to hold on, and then she hung up on me.
When I called back she said we don't deliver to you because you complained about not getting the curry sauce with the curry roll.

She FLAT OUT said that this restaurant is DENYING my service because I wrote in ONE GrubHub review that I didn't get sauce.

This is discrimination. And for what?


I don't know why a restaurant would feel some kind of way because I said they forgot something in my order. So now I'm banned? I wish I could have recorded the conversations because it wasn't nice at all. She was literally screaming at me on the phone. I didn't raise my voice at all. But she was screaming. At the top of her lungs.

This is the worst service ever! These people should not be running a restaurant if this is their mindset.

Do you do this to ALL of your customers? Or only the black ones in certain neighborhoods hmmm.

Make it make sense.


I used to order from them all the time. One time they forgot the curry sauce with my curry rolls. I told GrubHub and they gave me a refund.

Ever since, I tried to order and they cancelled my order. Twice. I called the restaurant and they said my location is "too far". But on every delivery app, they are the first ones that comes up because they're the closest. Plus someone in my neighborhood ordered from them and had no problem ordering. So for some reason this is a personal issue. They have been instructed to cancel my order every time they see my name and address. I don't know what I supposedly did to deserve this, but this is really bad business and I don't recommend them to anyone.

Fresh Pond Dream

The crown jewel of Ridgewood. Family operated with great care. Customers stay loyal and the food speaks for itself. If you find yourself stoned and starving walk on in and order as much as you can off the menu. Q58 stops right out front.

The General Tso’s Chick’n is amazing!

Order was placed on their website. I liked the option of selecting the desired time for pick-up. Arrived five minutes to 2:00 pm and my order was hot and ready. There are so many options to choose from on their menu. This place is a must try. You will not be disappointed. I will be back soon!

Pros: Excellent Food, Great Portion, Fast Service

Cons: None

Good Chinese food alternative

Visited CoCo Lin for the first time today. Been living 20mins or so from this place for nine years but since I’m never in Ridgewood, I’ve never heard of it. The options seem to be general Chinese food fare, and sometimes that’s exactly what you’re craving. I had the Massaman curry and my the wife had the mei fun and veggie dumplings. We both had the same reaction: m’eh. I’m really not trying to crap on this place. It was good food, in a nice busy neighborhood, and very friendly service (eg. the lady at the register didn’t recognize me, so when I began to order, she reminded me the entire menu was 100% vegan) I simply feel like although we all crave Chinese food sometimes, nobody thinks it’s the most delicious food around 🤷🏻‍♂️ all that being said, I’ll definitely be going back

Pros: 100% vegan, Good prices, Very friendly service

Cons: None

My absolute favorite restaurant in Ridgewood! I’ve been ordering from them for 6 years and I’ll never get tired of anything on the menu! Nuggets, wings, hot & sour soup are the best I’ve tried anywhere.

Pros: Lots of vegan options

Cons: Some entrees are pricey

Perfect Vegan Establishment

My first ever visit to CoCo Lin was beyond my expectations. It's a warm friendly unhurried restaurant with a down home feel. My guests and I enjoyed three different scrumptious appetizers and we each had a delicious and very reasonable lunch menu meal. The piping hot gratis jasmine green tea was amazing and satisfying. I only wish I had tried this amazing vegan restaurant sooner. I know I will be back very soon.

Incredibly Delicious Chinese Food

I live way out on the island but am sure to stop here whenever I am in the queens area. This Chinese food is incredible and I always get extra to take home with me. I’ve never had something I didn’t love. I wish this was closer to me!

I love this place❤️❤️❤️

Ridgewood and surrounding areas have nothing like cocolin, so that alone makes me thankful for them. But otherwise the food is very good, chicken nuggets are bomb, my favs are the sugarcane drumsticks, nuggets, summer rolls, noodle dishes, veggie dishes etc. So good. Coco is the sweetest. She is even delivering to me far away from the restaurant and I really appreciate it because they're my favorite delivery place. All vegan, relaxed, fair prices, good portions. Love this place!

Same as it ever was!

Been going here since it opened. I love it best eating in the restaurant. If you’re getting the General Tso’s delivered, please once just sit inside and eat it. It’s so much better right out of the fryer — A totally different experience! The owner is always there and will grow on you when you become a regular. My most frequently ordered are:
Gen Tso
Salt & pepper chicken appetizer
Wonton soup
Tofu in garlic sauce (yum!)
Veggie fried rice
Roast pork lo mein
Fried wonton appetizer


Pros: Huge menu , Something for everyone , 100% vegan

Cons: Expensive , Skimps on dipping sauces majorly, Long wait for delivery.

Chinese home cooking!!

As many of the reviews report this is an authentic Chinese Food experience with a strong healthy spin. The spring rolls are a must! Robust and full of veggies. The entrees reminded us of vegan Chinese in Hong Kong. Nice size portions. Fresh juice bar.

Authentic chinese food experience

A great surprise & my new go-to Chinese place. Ordered two lunch specials for $16 including tax — General Tso’s chicken and beef with broccoli. Both came with hot and sour soup. All of it tasted pretty much like the real thing...for a lot of it you could almost not tell someone it’s vegan and they wouldn’t know

Pros: SO many options, Full menu of every chinese option, Tasty food

My friend and I ordered delivery from this restaurant and had an amazing experience. We ordered the vegetable dumplings, wonton soup, tofu curry, and pad thai. The food was very delicious and warm, especially on a cold winter night. I definitely recommend ordering from this restaurant for its reasonable prices, tasty food, and free delivery if you spend $15. The delivery took a while, but the food was still warm and good. I'm coming back for that tofu curry!!

Amazing vegan food

We ordered delivery and had such a positive experience! We got the red curry with vegetables and tofu, vegetable pad thai, wonton soup, and the vegetable dumplings. This was so much food for 2 people, so we had left overs, but after taxes, delivery, and tip we only spent $32! Our favorite was the curry by far! I would recommend Coco Lin to anyone traveling to Brooklyn. Delivery was free on orders over $15

Great asian food

I really liked what I have at this restaurant. The mango "chicken" is really good, same as the vegetable dumplings and rolls.
