20 of us visited this restaurant this month (February 2017) after our originally restaurant booking at De Luca's in Cambridge was ruined when the restaurant gave away our tables to a hen party. We doorstepped Charlie Chans and they managed to accommodate 20 of us, celebrating a 50th birthday. The staff were lovely, very conscientious. Service was spot on, never... More

The food is quite good but the service is Indifferent. But it was extremely busy so I suppose that they are under no pressure to improve. You'd be better of at the Yim Wah but it is closed on Tuesday!

Great food! - as it has been on previous visits. Four of us had an excellent meal here at the weekend, including 3 vegetarians, and were all delighted. We went for the spring rolls, seaweed and Vietnamese spring rolls (for the one meat-eater) as starters - all very tasty though the seaweed was surprisingly sweet (but good!). Then a big... More

Also hot and spicy soup with egg not chicken, this was amazing and hot and the bowl was filled to the top I could not finish but I tried my best. Debated over the mains and... More

The Dim Sum are amazing and to be honest all of the food is very good indeed....my particular favourite are the Paper Wrapped Prawns Been coming to Charlie Chan's for roughly 30 years now (since I was a young lad) and the food has always been "up there" with the best but it's only recently I've started going there again...

I absolutely love it here! Although it is quite pricey! The food is delicious. It was my partners birthday when we went, and all the staff and customers were singing happy birthday to him! Friendly staff and good customer service!

Very average food. Service was quick. My most memorable item of the evening was how expensive this place is for little reward. No wonder there were plenty of tables available.

I have been eating at Charlie Chans since I was a toddler in my high chair and still to this day the food is just as good! I regularly visit for lunch, as the service is fast, efficient and the food is always delicious and the portion sizes are great! I recently ate here for dinner with family on New... More
