We had an outstanding meal here last night after a tiring drive in heavy 3-day weekend traffic. Charlie Hong Kong's is located in an old hamburger drive-in stand and is very casual. Food is ordered at one window and picked up at another. Staff was very helpful and our food arrived promptly. And OMG, was it delicious! Of particular mention... More

I was so excited to place my order, having passed this place and read all their claims of green and organic dedication. But the food just didn't measure up to its aspect. I overbought, wanting to experience a bit of everything...Yet each dish had a universal ingredient that overlayed a could be otherwise taste treat.

Rice noodles, extra sauce, mushroom topper plus veggie topper, and that's enough for TWO people and you can get it vegan and gluten free if that's what you want ... or NOT if that's not what you want as other options are available as well. If you go at dinner time you'll see a lot of people taking people home,... More

This place has been almost a landmark for the Santa Cruz locals. Always dependable great food - especially the toppings. I like the Spicy Dan with Salmon topping.

I ordered a green curry chicken on brown rice. It came without any curry sauce. When I asked they said they drain the sauce if the dish is served on rice. Idiotic. What's a dish without the sauce, just dry chicken on dry rice.

Fresh and Flavorful. It is an Iconic place in the heart of Santa Cruz. Parking may be tough but its worth the hassle.

Local friends suggested that I try this restaurant because they know I like heathy, well prepared food and that I had a time constraint to work with. I really appreciate their recommendation as the food was really excellent (teriyaki salmon veggie bowl) and it was fairly quick. This is a great local restaurant.

We came here hoping to find some pho in the capitola area and were directed here. There's not too much diversity in the menu, but the food is decent for a very Americanized Asian-style food. It's definitely kinda a healthy/yuppy attempt at pho/noodles/etc. I ordered the green curry noodles, which was much more vegetable than noodles. The flavors were underwhelming... More
