Just dined here with my best girl. We have been here in the past but I wasn't using TripAdvisor back then. The spinach tofu soup was superb as were the dumpling appetizers. I had the spicy shrimp and scallop dish which was very good. My wife had a seafood angel hair dish with ginger which was really good. She actually... More

Went with good friends for dinner on a Friday evening a couple of weeks ago. Hadn't been there in years since moving from Glastonbury. We remembered it 20 plus years ago as being a 'very' special place and very good....even exceptional food but not any more. Food is average Asian fare. Place is dated. Bathroom needs updating. If u want... More

This is a hidden gem. For someone looking for wonderful food and great ambience. A very small place but great feel. And you get to be in the company of the fish who have been there for 25yrs!!!!! Who knew fish could live that long in an aquarium, none of my fish have!!!!

Char Koon has been here for many years and I know people who frequent it but I had never tried until recently. I am very glad I finally did! The decor is light, clean and relaxing. The restaurant is very easy to find in South Glastonbury and there is ample parking. The service was excellent - very attentive yet not... More

We got Char Koon for take out last night. We had the beef on a stick, the cashew chicken with veggies and the dumplings . The food was great....the kids really love the beef or chicken on a stick and it's the first time I've have the cashew chicken. I didn't find any cashew nuts in there but it was... More

This is my "go to" place for Thai food. There is a good choice on the menu. The service is fast and the food is always good. The place is on the small side. They seem to do a good take out business as well. They have beer and wine. A favorite place, one of my top 5 places to... More

Char Koon advertises as serving Pacific Rim Cuisine and that it is. The offerings run from Thai to Chinese to Malaysian. The food is a pleasant departure from the typical Chinese takeout. The servings are ample and very tasty with a wide variety to meet most tastes. Service is top-shelf. While the restaurant is not large, I have never seen... More

We usually get a pick up and the food is usually good. But the next day I usually get a head ache because they use that aweful stuff MSG.

We really used to love this place when it was new, the first restaurant in the area to offer Malaysian dishes. We had dinner there this week for the first time in a long time, and we were reminded of why we stopped going here. The beef satay was one of the better items. Of the four skewers of beef,... More

Stopped here after crossing the historic ferry across the Connecticut River from Rocky Hill. Cozy restaurant, clean and friendly service but really nothing special. A mish mash of several eastern cuisines with a preponderance of Chinese dishes. Have eaten better in many ethnic places. But maybe this was just a one time experience. Will try it one more on my...
