Great food and location

We ate here numerous times during our stay as it was just down the road from our hotel. Its right on the main highway in Chaweng Noi. The staff were very friendly and the food arrived quickly.

At first we thought the taxi driver had dropped us off at the wrong location because this wasn't the beachside resturant we had read about on tripadvisor. The owner told us they moved about 3 years ago. We had come for the lobster but the price was a bit steep at $AU40 per 100g so I ordered the blue swimmer... More

Charming was one of the first restaurants we tried in Chaweng. We are there 3 times trying new dishes in our 6 night stay. Food was quick, fast and amazing. The man who appeared to run the restaurant had amazing customer service and great English. The boy he was training was good too :) there are so many Thai dishes... More

I've been here twice. Cordon bleu was ok, good pineapple fried rice and sweet and sour chicken. Terrible pizza, very small maybe 7" diameter, overpriced and not good. Had a great pizza a few doors down at la lanterna but they were closed Monday.

Nice prices, very polite service and very very tasty food. We will come again! Bad thing was that we were sitting close to the road and it was a little loud there.

Throughout our stay at the New Star Beach Resort (Chaweng noi) we have been dining at Charmings for 3 times. Everytime the Thai food tasted superb and was spicy as we ordered it. We liked the friendly staff and price perfomance ratio of the restaurant. We can absolutely recommend it!

The restaurant is located directly across the Vana Belle resort. Nice decor, very good fresh food, reasonable pricing and attentive service. My wife and I went there yesterday and returned tonight. While seated the cash I was carrying in my short's pocket fell on the floor and I did not notice. The waitress came, picked it up and handed it... More

Well I have seen a really nice reviews on TA and I got really excited about the place as I love Thai food and sea food. First of all, the restaurant is not where the map shows... And secondly it's not that great either. We ordered fried squid as a starter. Unfortunately, all the squid was gone so we were... More

The resraurant is now placed at the main street in chaweng noi. We eat there three times during our stay. The food was excellent and original. The prices were ok. Our favourit was the red curry. Special thanks to the chef, he and his crew were always very friendly.
