On a Friday night, I walked in and there was only Asian people eating and about 4 tables occupied around 8:30pm. Is this a sign for good Chinese food? I placed a take out order and waited less than 5 minutes. I ordered the Three Spice Chicken and it was spicy and had good flavor. The portion was large. I... More

Owners are very friendly and the food is fresh made without all the msg other places have. Love all the dishes I've had there.

The most authentic Chinese food in the area. If you're used to the chains or "Number 1 Chinese" restaurants, you may not like some of the food here. I find the food quite good and worth the visit.

Ordered from the back page of the menu - the 'authentic' section, and got Kung Pao chicken, garlic string beans, and a beef with scallops that was absolutely yummy. Every bite was like 'oh wow…' And the egg rolls were nice too. Also the jasmine tea. I agree that the place needs a serious remodeling, and better lighting, but the... More

We decided to try Charlie's, despite bad reviews, since it's close to our house and delivers. BIG MISTAKE! Worst Chinese food I've ever had. The worst part is that the rice tasted very strongly of chemicals! I wouldn't call myself a picky eater but this wasn't even edible and went in the trash. What a waste of money...just praying I...

We came from Northern Virginia and our son is studying at Virginia Tech. We did a good research and found Charlie's Chinese Restaurant is the best one in Blacksburg/Christiansburg area. The owner couple came from Shanghai many years ago and the dishes they made were so authenticate and delicious. We drove to this restaurant everything we went to Virginia Tech... More

We recently moved to the area and were in the mood for Chinese. We found this place not too far from our home and decided to try it. It was pretty quiet with only a few other people in there (this should've been a clue). The decor looked like it was complete from the Dollar Tree circa 1980. The menus... More

I went once, and never again. The service was decent, but that is about all that can be said. The atmosphere is mediocre at best and the food was awful.

Not sure what some of these review are talking about. My wife and I love the place. In fact there is no other place in the area that offers real Chinese food. If you visit Hunan House your getting Americanized food. Try the three pepper chicken, dragon and phoenix, or the twice cooked pork, all great choices. I've had Chinese... More

Used to have very good Chinese but it has been steadily declining for a number of years. Do not go here.
