This is the best place to go for this fusion-ish asian noodle bowl food. The prices are very reasonable and the food is tastee and fairly wholesome. They can get jammed, but usually things move quick. Something for gluten free people and vegetarians.
I wouldn't get the rice bowls to go though - The packaging is too small. It's better to eat there.

Bonnnie.. I was sorry to hear about your lousy experience at Charlie Hong Kong. I don't particularly like hearing a negative public review of our restaurant but then it is through comments like yours, that much information can be gleaned. Sincerely! I know that it has been a few months since your visit but was still curious as to what you had that would qualify your experience as the "worst food ever"?
Thanks,
Darryl

I always like the spicy Dan with the green curry topping. It has fresh organic vegetables. Although the dishes have a definite Asian influence, their interpretation has their spin. For example, when you think of green curry you would expect it to be hot... In this case it is spicy but not even mild. In general, I find the flavors delightful.

Our week night go-to dinner spot for healthy and delicious food. My fave: Spicy Dan's Peanut with green chicken. Yum!

Read about it in newspaper organic veggies, so we went, ordered ginger beef, bowl of fragment jasmine rice, little sauce no ginger taste, beef was mainly grisly and fat, the veggies were julien carrots all six of them and green onions about the same. Very pricey for a bowl of rice. Would not recommend this place.
