This place has been churning out great food at reasonable prices for years now. The staff are friendly, and it's easy to get a table. I sincerely hope it sticks around!

“Excellent food in an intimate venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

Cosmic Charlie's has everything to like in a small, intimate, casual and open concept dining experience. The entrees are prepared in an open kitchen behind the scene by a team that wastes little time in getting your meal ready; most importantly they do not spend a lot of time making a production about their work (eg: banging pots, calling out to one another etc); they focus on preparing high quality-good value meals delivered hot and fresh to your table. The dishes, Thai themed, are delicious and quite filling. As this is a small venue there is little room for a large team of servers but the staff who work there are very attentive and courteous; our meals, on a busy night when we had time constraints, were delivered within 15 minutes of ordering. It is highly recommended that you get a reservation for Friday and Saturday nights as it is a small venue; we watched at least 5 or 6 drop-in groups turned away due to the house being full. We will visit here many times. It is also a great place for lunch.

Great Thai food and packs a punch of flavor! The place itself if very small but not without its charms. If you haven't tried it I suggest you go. you'll love it. and make sure you have the spring rolls!

Excellent food and presentation, great beer, dark pub-like feel... Location was excellent, too: downtown on a great shopping street.
