Not amazing.

Apparently this establishment has recently had a change of ownership. It wasn't bad, but I expected a pizza restaurant and instead it seemed to have switched to Indian food - reminded me of Eastern Food Bazaar in Cape Town. It wasn't terrible, but I don't know if I'd go back any time soon. It just... read more

Great Italian pizza made in a stone oven. They also serve very good tapas style meals. Highly recommended!

Went to Charlie Superstar for a pizza as my sister was raving about their pizzas. Went just before 6pm on a Saturday evening and the place was dead quiet - not a sole in the restaurant. Asked the chap inside if they still did pizza as the place seems to have undergone an identity crisis due to a few buddhas... More

Just wanted to let you know that I think your service is really shocking. I went to Charlie Superstar ( stanley street) last night with a group of friends, firstly when we got pur menus there was a piece of food stuck in a menu then the waiter messed up the drinks order, then he did not put the order...

The new ownership is sorely felt. There is quite clearly no understanding of the food or the market they're serving. The first sign was the menu we were presented with.. 80's steakhouse-esque complete with curly font. But the real problems began with its content. Charging almost R70 for a margherita pizza is extortion! Even under prevoous ownership the restaurant had... More

Nice spot on Stanley Street. Very accommodating to my vegan diet. The pear salad was amazing and the pizza was quite good too. The pizza smelled amazing and did not disappoint. I was there on a Tuesday night and was lucky enough to catch live music by local artist Michelle. She is currently performing on Tues & Sun nights. Acoustic... More

Given this was only restaurant open on Sunday in area it has real chance to form good reputation. Instead appears to take advantage of the fact is only place open. Next time I will cook. Service began by being told short of wines by glass. Pizza was overcooked actually base was burnt. The tastes overwhelm each other though sounded lovely... More

We stopped by for coffee's and dessert after dinner around the corner at Sticky Fingers..and what a MASSIVE disappointment. I had last eaten here about 18 months ago and it was memorable! Sadly, it is no longer! Cake was old, tea was cold and coffee's were burnt. Reading the reviews on this site, I now understand that it is under... More

We used to love Charlies. The pizzas were awesome and the staff were great, lots of fun and energy. We would inevitably find ourselves there every few weeks. It changed ownership last year and it's unbelievable how it's deteriorated. If there was ever a study in the difference good management makes, this is it. Our last effort in January to... More

We used to LOVE this restaurant, but since new owners have taken over it's horrid. The waitress was clueless and when our pizzas arrived they were virtually inedible. I had to send mine back as it was missing one of the key ingredients and then had to fetch it myself from kitchen as the two waitresses on duty were chatting... More
