We have eaten in this restaurant for 15 years and had food delivered over the same period.It has gone downhill. We had to throw our last deliveryinto the garbage after only a few bites. What a disgrace!

In general, I rarely debate matters of taste, but simply put, the few I can see who gave this place a bad review have to be either competitors, disgruntled former employees or they have no palate but are unaware of that fact. I have lived in the Bronx and Queens and I have become an unwilling expert in what bad Chinese food really tastes like. You can see it coming when they cannot make chicken with cashew nuts without breading and frying the chicken first (not at Charlie Mom's!) or they load everything down with celery like it's the only vegetable they can afford. Charlie Mom's dishes always have varied ingredients and lovely colors. Every now and then I have to go to Charlie Mom's to wash the taste and memory of the stuff I had around here off my tongue and out of my brain. Thank God CM's exists. They should go around to every Chinese place in the outer boroughs and teach these people how to cook. I'm serious. I can't even recommend one dish to you because I've never had anything bad there, I've only had a dish or two I've never tried that was not to my liking simply because it wasn't something I would have liked no matter who made it.

This really is the perfect place for a lunch take out. Other than most Chinese places the staff is very friendly - they even waved at me when I said goodbye. The chicken broccoli had lots of broccoli, nicely sauteed and the chicken was allright. A little too much sauce but I just poured some of it away. The best deal: for 6.50 it comes with a spring roll and a really cute additional bag that has different sauces, a fortune cookie and a Oolong Tea Bag. Nice experience. Go there twice a week now

I've been looking for this egg roll all over the city! Not too greasy, not too dry. Crispy and easy to bite into without it falling apart. ...And of course, delicious! My dumplings were a bit greasy but SOOO GOOD. Will always order form here from now on!

We read the amazing reviews with my boyfriend and ordered from this restaurant. Scallion pancakes were very thick and uncooked, sweet and sour chicken had a very thick batter on it, it was like wet bread with a sweet ketchup tasting sauce. I am not exaggerating, also the fried rice basically boiled white rice with raw vegetables in it. It is in front of me, 3 raw bamboo shoots, 6 raw sugar snap peas and 10 green peas. My mom cant cook but i think hers would taste better than Charlie's mom

After Mama Buddha shut its doors, I was forced to seek another go to restaurant for my chinese fix. By far, this exceeds all the others. While it may be a little pricier, it is entirely worth it. The ingredients are fresher and tastier. The portion sizes and the quality make it worth it. My regular dishes are eggroll and shrimp with broccoli. Consistent and reliable food/service every time.
