When I first moved to Charlestown over 10 years ago, the first pickup order I made was to Chow Thai. Charlestown had relatively few dining choices and going into the city is often a chore. It's great to have Dan and Chow Thai in the...More

I was walking thru Charlestown and stopped in for lunch. I tried the chicken satay, which was tender and perfectly marinated. I also had the chicken hot basil. I love Thai food but most of the time the chicken has been over cooked and is...More

I got the crispy Pad Thai, would not recommend. The service was horrible. We got forgotten in the front corner. Poor service and mediocre food equals an experience I won't have twice.

Pad Thai was pretty inedible. Prosecco was served in a half pint beer glass. Overcharged on bill and took an age to rectify. Need I say more? Really needs to up it's game.

Charlestown
Charlestown’s hilly roads, narrow streets and gaslight
lamps, make it an enticing neighborhood to visit.
Follow the Freedom Trail over the Washington St bridge
from the North End or take the scenic water locks to
Paul Revere Park. Walk through City Square and stroll
down cute Main street, wandering up the windy
residential streets to Monument Square, where you can
learn about the city’s history along with a great view
