Small family get together, everyone enjoyed their meals as usual. Nice beer selection. Big portions, with enough left to take home. We ordered pad thai, green curry, fish & chips, and butter chicken. Let me tell you about this butter chicken ... I can't not order this dish every time I go, it's that good. The chicken is so tender,... More

I took my friend here for dinner a few weeks back and returned again with my husband last weekend. I love this place, I have never been disappointed. Charlie's Spring rolls are amazing, I wish that there was more on the plate to share; they are so good. The mango salad is so fresh and tasty, absolutely delicious and a... More

We stumbled upon Cosmic Charlie's after seeing a performance at the Market Theatre. The atmosphere was enticing and so was the food. We sampled and shared the onion dish (I forget it's name) and the chicken satays. We really enjoyed the food and the prompt courteous service. This is a family run business and their commitment to their customers is... More

I have been going to Cosmic Charlie's for about 15 years. Always a great meal. Last couple of times I have been disappointed. Not sure what is happening, but I hope they get it sorted out. I ordered Beef Satay, which I have enjoyed many times in the past. Tonight the beef was over cooked and dry. Satay sauce was... More

Very nice lunch. Lots of tea choices and the staff is very friendly! Satay chick & Fish & chips were both good. Yummy spring rolls.

For the cheaper traveler, or for the regular PTBO explorer, desserts can be a hopeful wish when money is tight. Cosmic Charlie's doesn't help the wallet, but their mango cheesecake topped with raspberry sauce and mint leave is good enough to pay the $7.50 for it! Would definitely recommend!

Loved the atmosphere, waitress was very nice and conversational. Flavours were great and food presentation was some of the best I've seen for Thai in Peterborough. Though everything was so good, for this city, the price seemed high for a small restaurant on Charlotte street. Will go back again for a special occasion.

Finally made it here, can't believe what I'd been missing! Smaller place but nice atmosphere, has the roll up door at the front and opens the place right up. Great food that is spiced just right, this is the first restaurant I've ate at where there is no salt and pepper shakers on the table! You don't need them! The... More

We've been going to Charlie's for years. It's a family run restaurant and is consistently good reasonably priced and always delicious. If you're going you need to have Charlie's spring rolls and you want extra dipping sauce because it's just that good!!!
