The food here was either incredibly salty or full of sugars. Chinese cooking is not like this. The salty dishes help push beverage sales, and it is evident from the waitstaff pushing drinks. There were four of us visiting, and none of us ordered an appetizer or enter which was any better than the above description. The only reason this... More

Food was great. We had an early dinner here - so crowds were light. Only complaint was that our waitress spent a lot of time at tables of folks who were obviously regulars. We had a hard time just getting drinks refilled. Other than that dinner was great.

This was our first visit and we were very happy with the food. We ordered steamed chicken gyoza for appetizer (one of the happy hour specials), it was delicious. The Singapore noodles with chicken and the Mongolian beef were equally good. What we loved the most was a beef and melted cheese appetizer wrapped in a scallion pancake (can't remember... More

I have been going to Charlie Chiang's in Shirlington for years. At some point in the past several years things have gone downhill. For years the atmosphere (which is excellent) was second only to the phenomenal food. Now it is just, simply, not good.

We can't speak to the dine-in experience but can say with confidence to avoid the delivery experience. Simply put...not tasty food. Delivery was timely, correct, and relatively warm but just "not good". Too many choices out there that offer this cuisine to settle for Charlie Chiang's.

I was happy to find a parking spot after 15 minutes. This area is so packed. But I got seated right away outside. Thought that was a good spot except the massive dog behind me dipped his tail in the water bowl that apparently all the restaurants provide. Then he got excited by another dog and I got a shower....

Well located on the shirlington strip. Visited on a saturday night before the movie. The food was delicious. Service was as prompt as it could be. The calamari was done in an Asian style and was served on a bed of crispy rice noodles with sweet and hot.sauce. My friend thought it was great. The sangria can be ordered by... More

I have gone to this restaruant a few times. It just keeps getting better. Go for happy hour the appetizers are less and just fantastic. The bartenders are very nice and talkative. I enjoy the layout of the restaruant. The shrimp summer roll is very good. The rice roll ups are all great.

The atmosphere is romantic and yet comfortable for watching sports at the bar. The cuisine is excellent and the service is fast. There is no bad seat in the establishment.
