Group of 5 wanted a combination of Chinese and Korean dishes. Wait staff was wonderful in recommending dishes and modifications such as extra chili paste on the side OR extra vegetables added to a dish. Look forward to returning. Great dinner for the price!

Service was very slow. They didn't get my order right. Food was okay but nothing special. The sesame chicken,was over breaded. I have had tastier American style Chinese food at Panda Express.

I just go the Pad Thai to go order. Go to my work and realized they I got 4 pieces of small shrimp in the order. NOT worth the money! Will not order that again.

For East Lansing, this place is really good! I especially love that servers are able to recommend gluten-free friendly dishes, and there are plenty of choices. The stone bowl is really good, as is the chapjae. It's a hole in the wall place, but the...More

It's been the family favorite for 30 years. Great food - fresh, fast, reasonably priced. It's one of the top 3 restaurants in Lansing area.

After pouring over trip advisor for an hour ( maybe 2 I'm ashamed to say), I finally decided on Charlie Kane's for good American Chinese. I was overwhelmed by the huge number of Asian restaurants and quickly surmised some are very authentic. Charlie's had delicious...More
