Charlie Chan's has a laid back, low key sort of vibe. The front has a fireplace which is rustic but then there's a television above the fireplace. The middle is a corridor of green cushioned seats and the back is where you order your thai food. The thai is reasonably priced and well cooked.
When I used to work in Haymarket, Charlie Chan's was a regular venue for your after work drinks. They have great cocktail specials but it's now changed. They have very reasonably price bottles of wine too.
They have what they call the 555 special which means there are $5 James Squires, $5 House Wine and Sparkling and $5 house spirits from 6pm to 9pm. You better get there on Thursday or Friday nights though for their half price cocktails from 6pm to 9pm.
My favourite cocktails were the Berry Chi or your classic cosmo. However I had to settle for my normal Vodka Cranberry as I was last here on a Wednesday evening.
Enjoy a quiet drink and a quick thai dinner in good company.
