Was in the area and saw the reviews and decided to stop. Agree with the previous review about the decor, but the food is very good. Ordered the steak and snow peas with mushrooms and a spring roll. Very pleased with both! Would return again.

Traveling back from Boston through snow, we needed a break from the long 12 hour drive, and decided to stop in Christiansburg for dinner. Found Charlie's open, with one other cozy couple and a table of young Asian men eating enthusiastically as they shared dishes on the lazy susan they enjoyed spinning with beautiful displays of the menu's dishes. Our order was quickly taken and we were brought Chinese chips and sauce, and continued to enjoy watching the untamed young men as they gobbled the delicacies and spoke excitedly in their native tongue. I felt as if it were a sign to come of the order we had placed... Whoever Charlie is, he was working hard to cook our orders and what a surprise we got! The egg drop soup was superb followed by bowls of steamed white rice bowls and our heavenly dishes. I ordered a shrimp dish with assorted vegetables in a tasty sauce. My husband had the sesame chicken which he raved about. My children ordered the brocoli and chicken dishes which they loved. The portions are huge, that you will need to get a box for a late night snack! We reluctantly left the wonderful aromas that infused the air and were warmly thanked by the owner's wife! Charlie, whoever he is, is like a magician with his cooking, and can be heard working feverishly in the kitchen to make our wish come true! Would have liked to have seen and thanked him...JWatching out 4U!

Wasn't sure if Christiansburg would have a good Chinese place and was pleasantly surprised to come across Charlie's. Located in the old downtown section of town it's a non-descript building and the interior is nothing to write home about...lots of plastic flowers and not much on design. However if you're looking for excellent food then you've found the right place. The food tates fresh and the portions are good. Egg rolls had whole shrimp in them and not greasy at all. The Triple Delight was delicious, good cuts of meat and very fresh vegetables. Don't judge by appearances...this is a great find in Christiansburg.

This little place on main street in Christiansburg is really a find. Service is excellent and food is very good. Portions are more than generous. Price is average for this type of restaurant. I would recommend this restaurant.

It was where we all went to eat...and eat... and eat. When they saw us coming, they knew that the profit that day would take a hit.
