Ok But Not As Good As Was Told

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... read 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.

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

I'm not sure how I could have lived in Anchorage so long and not known about Charlie's. Today I had lunch there and had an excellent Thai Curry Chicken with a sticky bun. The curry was very nice ... probably not one of the best ever, but still a very substantial good! and plenty of food. Other in my party... More

Don't be fooled by the name -- Charlie's Bakery offers the best and most authentic Chinese food in Anchorage (and Alaska, for that matter). Be sure to visit this place on a Saturday, when their full Dim Sum menu is available. Har gow, shu mai, sticky rice steamed in lotus leaves, fried taro balls, ginger chicken, steamed baby bok choy...

You walk in and you think it is a bakery, which it is. Then you look on the wall and there is a Chinese food menu. Food was good, ambiance was a table and chairs, but since I was eating alone, who cares. I would go back again, for the food and to try some of the bakery items.

We stopped here after a long drive from Valdez and just wanted something quick and tasty. The service was fast and you have to try the egg tart. Yum!

I had heard from the locals that to get good Chinese food, we needed to go to Charlie's bakery. It is both a bakery and Chinese food. It sounded very odd, but we were very impressed. The food was very good. Our favorite Chinese dish was the pork buns. Our favorite bakery item was the custard bun. Yum! This is... More
