You can't go by the Name..For Dim Sum. This is it

Being born and raised in San Francisco's new Chinatown, my taste for Dim Sum is pretty discerning. Every time I come here, I do stop for my fix. The decor is basic strip mall modern, taste is Hong Kong Style. A fusion Dim Sum and French Bakery... What can I say. Dim Sum reminds of .. ..,Home and a... read more

Don't let the name fool you. Yes, it's a great bakery with pastries and cakes; HOWEVER, they also have a dim sum and entree menu. I usually get #1 Sticky Rice and #24 Wonton soup with shrimp dumplings. Order at the counter and get your own drink -- they will bring the food to your table. Casual cafe with great... More

If you enjoy Dim Sum, y'all gotta check out Charlie's. You make your selection from a menu board. A server will bring it to your table. Oh, the beef noodle soup is incredibly yummy!!

Charlie's Bakery offers yummy cakes, breads, and sweet/savory baked goods -- and is also the best, most authentic Chinese restaurant in Alaska (hands down). What makes this eatery so special is their Dim Sum -- all of the classic offerings are available here (har gow, she mai, sticky rice in lotus leaves, steamed buns... along with a number of hard...

For the only place in Anchorage that does Dim Sum this place is great!!! Their entrees are very tasty and the Dim Sum is even better but the true highlight of Charlie's are the baked goods!! Cakes to die for and the most amazing buns with stuff baked inside like chicken and veggies or BBQ pork. Charlie's is a little... More

After visiting the lower 48 and having great Chinese food we had a craving for good Chinese food. So we did some research and read that Charlie's had some of the best Chinese food in Anchorage. Next time I want Chinese I'll I go to the lower 48.

This restaurant came highly recommended by friends. Haven't had "great" Chinese food in 10 years in Anchorage so we were curious. Very clean inside - the kitchen looked very clean from where we could see and the bathrooms were exceptionally clean. The menu wasn't the most descriptive nor was it necessarily accurate as one of our dishes arrived with pork... More

Went there once, was recommended by one of my friend. However, I was very disappointed. The bread didn't seem very fresh to me, and there are very few selections. The Chinese food that I chose was not hot, and it taste like nothing=(

The thai curry pastry puff (best fresh rather than as to-go item) and sticky rice wrapped in lotus leaves (item #1) are family favorites but everything is great. We have been going to lunch here on Saturdays for years. It never disappoints. The cakes are top notch and very traditional (bread is fresh as well) but I'm a bigger fan... More

My wife and I love dim sum and we love the selection and value we find when we leave Alaska. You want dim sum in Anchorage? Better head for Charlie's Bakery 'cause you won't find this elsewhere around here. It's good and it's fairly priced. We can recommend better places in Seattle and beyond, but Charlie's is the place to... More
