My family and I went to Charim for lunch and was not disappointed. The food was great and the service was great even though the place was packed. The price was reasonable. It was my second visit and will not be my last.

I ate here after reading the reviews. I had the marinated beef which i thought was tasty and well presented. The wait staff was pleasant. I will return.

The food was excellent. My first visit here. The waitress could not speak English very well but tried very hard to answer our questions about the food. Would definitely recommend.
