“Only place upstate for Chinese Food”
Reviewed 19 February 2014 via mobile

Have had 2 meals from this place. Both takeout. Great Hot and Sour soup. Dishes are excellent without being too heavy. I have lived in NYC and this is comes very close. I give it 5 stars because it is so much better than anything else in the area.

“Great variety, good food”
Reviewed 25 December 2013

Char Koon is a hole-in-the-wall restaurant behind a door on the main street of Saratoga.

They have a great variety of dishes, cooked in a fresh, healthy style. We had three vegetarian dishes, of which the yellow curry was the standout. It was delicious. We would get their food again on another visit.

We enjoyed sitting next to the fish tank.

“Thai and Chinese”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

There are two menus. We generally order off both of them. I like the rock shrimp appetizer with a tasty mayonnaise sauce. My husband usually gets a duck dish that he likes. It smells delicious. My daughter likes the sesame chicken.

We get take out, I have never eaten in the restaurant.

“A wonderful experience”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

This is a nice little family restaurant in the heart of the city of Saratoga Springs. The people are very friendly and give great service. The food is delicious and not over priced like many of the other restaurants around here. It's a very nice casual dining experience. Highly recommend stopping by!

“Average at best”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

When we arrived for dinner, we were the only diners. Should have been our cue to walk out. The food was served warmed versus hot and lacked any kind of flavor. We all left disappointed.
