Char Koon Restaurant Review

: Char Koon has always been proud to say of its Asian food: We are different. Indeed, this pocket-size restaurant has endured because of its culinary range. Although some familiar Cantonese and Szechuan staples appear on the menu, to order them would defeat the purpose of embracing the kitchen’s versatility in the form of exotic and seductive Malaysian, Thai, Indian and Vietnamese dishes. Their flavors are as bright and vivid as they are varied. Noodle preparations are among the kitchen's best and most unusual offerings; we like the angel hair noodles stir-fried with shrimp and scallops in Malay blue ginger sauce as well as spicy volcano flank steak.
