We've given this place many chances, but after this last time, we're just done with it. This is NOT good Chinese food. Since I saw many reviews rave about the sesame chicken being freshly made, we got that. Well, yeah, it was freshly made, but bland, and not crispy/not cooked long enough or hot enough in the fryer. It was... More

Ate here with 4 adults and three kids under 13. Great casual Asian food variety (great pics of food on wall by menu). Ordered at counter, received a table number, then they delivered to table. Housed in a strip mall but don't let that turn you away! Would recommend! The only way it could be better is to take orders... More

Grand kids wanted to try it, they thought it was okay not great as did I. Soup of the day was not my liking.

I found this through my trusty friend 'Siri' when I asked for the highest rated restaurants in the area. I was not disappointed. I had the dumplings. They were hand made and delicious. This is also a bakery with beautiful pastries and cakes. This is a must go to every time I visit Anchorage.

A birthday party we were invited to offered slices of chocolate strawberry and vanilla coconut from Charlie's Bakery. Both were springy angel food. I liked the coconut best. Lightly sweetened, perfect consistency. The fruit toppings on the chocolate cake were excellent. Very pleasant surprise to usual cakes weighed down with heavy buttercream or nasty fake whipped topping.

We had fun eating Dim Sum here on a Saturday. Food was excellent. You order from a counter instead of the usual carts you find in a Dim Sum restaurant. The price was high but as an occasional treat it is okay.

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...

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 good... More
