Introducing Char: Your New Favorite Asian Fusion Spot

Located in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan, Char was founded by Grand Rapids' own local chef Adham Kader and his brother Ramzy Kader in collaboration with Abdul Qassem in early 2018.

Experience the Flavors of the East and West at Char

At Char, we introduce the world to unique twists on traditional Asian street foods, such as the Asian Taco, simple Vietnamese Pho soup, and freshly made salads. Our menu offers something for everyone, including vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and allergen-free options. As we grow, our menu will too, so be sure to check back often to see what new and exciting dishes we've added!

Char + Gita Pita: The Perfect Pair
