“Comfort food”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

I have such fond memories of this place. I used to live above the French Roast across the street, and Charlie Mom was the first and last place I ate at when living there. It's great to see that it is still open in a city where establishments open and close in a blink of an eye. It was never a trendy or absolute must dining establishment but it was always consistent, a true testament to its longevity. I didn't love all their dishes but had many favorites of large proportions - dumplings, all the dishes in the brown sauces, beef and chinese broccoli, chow mein, moo shoo...pretty much more than half the menu. They always remembered you and always took care of their regulars. They would also remember your customizations (e.g., little oil, more veggies, etc.).

It's not authentic Chinese necessarily but great Chinese-American cuisine. I actually prefer it sometimes over the authentic ones in Chinatown. I was recently back for a quick 3 day business trip and was bummed that I couldn't make time to stop by. Still one of my favorites for fast, consistent, good Chinese food.

“A good and clean chinese restaurant”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

The correct address of this restaurant is 464 6 th Ave, and not as stated above.

The restaurant is very tasty. We ordered a good chinese soup for a start, and a very good dish of poultry and cashew nuts. The portion was very large, enough for both my wife and myself.

Service was efficient, quick and smiling.

the restaurant is very clean. Toilets were spotless.The price- very reasonable. I highly recommend this place.

“Curried Noodle Soup”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Try the curried noodle soup with chicken -- a big bowl of al dente noodles tucked under crisp green snow peas, baby corn, tender bok choy, succulent slices of chicken swimming in sensuous fragrant curry and ginger broth. Served with Jasmine tea. Refined, surroundings.
