We really liked Charlie Hong Kong. The food was fresh, warm and plentiful. Service was good. It is a small place but popular. Parking is limited, to the side and behind the building. We did take out on our way to a concert at the...More

First off-do not come out of the way to try this place. It isn't awful but it isn't amazing either. The concept is good but the execution kinda failed. I like the idea of healthier versions of Asian cuisines but it doesn't fully deliver. The...More

Big rice bowls filled with fresh, healthy combinations of meat, seafood, vegetables and flavours. At first look the sign might suggest Chinese you want to avoid, but what you find inside makes this a very good, inexpensive meal choice in Santa Cruz.

For the price, food quality, and overall healthy choices this is a home run. The portions are generous and the vegetables very fresh. It's hard to beat the combination of great healthy food at a fair price! I really love this little restaurant.

Charlie's is THE place to go for a real taste of Santa Cruz! It's friendly Delicious Healthy and Affordable! Great for kids -even small ones. The dining is super casual - picnic tables in an enclosed area- and very very friendly. This is a great...More
