This is one of the oldest restaurants in Cambridge. We had a booked dinner, and were not impressed by the standard of service. The food however was very fresh and well cooked. Price for two was £60.00.

This is not a bad place to go to for asian food in Cambridge. Menu selection and prices are okay. Service was good.

Does what it says on the tin - we've been going to Charlie Chan for years and whilst not cheap the food is good and service excellent in a slightly '70's (upstairs) setting. Start with the dumplings. Delicious.
