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

Had the Gado Gado and Little Dan's Delight. Both were over the top! Everything that came out of that kitchen looked great.

Went in expecting greasy chinese food, instead was offered light and flavorful dishes spanning from vietnamese to korean. Staff was helpful, clientele was nice and food was excellent. Great restaurant in santa cruz.

The place has some good reviews and they were very busy. I had beef with rice and the meat was dry and the whole dish very bland. I probably would not eat there again. It just did not turn me on. I have had much better food.

Charlie Hong Kong is a regular stop for us anytime we are in Santa Cruz. The food is always very fresh and flavors are unique. It's a great value for those on a budget and though it's fast, it is NOT greasy, fatty, over salted food.

Place was packed on a weekend night, but service was still very fast. You order from the window and then sit in the small dining area. Weather was great when I went, I can see that it might be a problem in bad weather. Food had great flavor and healthy prep, this place is a winner for sure.

Really great that they have a vegan menu! The Spicy Dans was great, could have been spicier, but that's an easy fix with chili sauce on the table!
