Charlie Chan is something of a Cambridge institution. For over 30 years this family-run restaurant in the city centre has continued to maintain high standards, offering great food and efficient service, much to the delight of a very loyal local following.

Spread over two floors, Charlie Chan provides fresh, homemade dim sum, which the local Chinese community flock to enjoy. Although the menu is perhaps shorter than those often found in London’s Chinatown, the quality of the dim sum is second to none. The atmosphere in the casual ground-floor dining room seems to come straight from Hong Kong, with lots of chatting between adjacent tables and banter between diners and staff giving the place a real buzz.

By contrast, the plush upstairs dining room provides a slightly more formal ambience – with a capacity of 90, it’s perfect for special celebrations. Once a month a live pianist provides elegant background music (call the venue for dates) as diners peruse a menu combining familiar favourites with the more exotic dishes favoured by Chinese guests – including students yearning for the familiarity of home-cooked food. To accompany these options, there is also an extensive list of world wines sourced from Charlie Chan’s award-winning supplier.

Whatever your preference, there is a great selection for everyone, including vegetarians and those with gluten-free requirements. For real homemade Chinese food in Cambridge, it has to be Charlie Chan.
