Description: Charm Thai is a real gem in the Holiday Inn Resort Phuket, Patong. It sits separate to the other restaurants, overlooking the beautiful fountains and swimming pool of our Busakorn wing and can be easily accessed more or less directly from the street without having to pass through the main body of the hotel. The key word with Charm Thai is definitely “authentic” – from the décor and gentle background music, through the staff, the uniforms and of course the menu, Charm Thai remains really focused on delivering a true Thai experience. Of course the standards of service are as consistently high as in all of our restaurants, but the real magic of Charm Thai comes from our Chef Wisuth and his team in the production of beautifully composed and perfectly cooked authentic Thai food. The perennial favorites include ‘Som Tam’ served with soft-shell crab, fish fillet in red coconut curry with kaffir lime and stir fried shrimp with tamarind sauce. Of course it goes without saying that all of the more traditional Thai dishes are among the best you will find on the island – whether rice or noodles, fresh Phuket lobster, the eponymous green curry or my personal favorite Tom Yam Goong, you can taste the passion and the pride of the Thai people in every dish we serve

“Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

We found this place by accident as we were not staying at the Holiday Inn , and was so glad we did we ate there 3 times and every meal was totally delicious and ridiculously cheap , we had a set menu on one occasion and it worked out to about £13 including two beers and was fabulous , we intend to return to Phuket and will be returning to the Charm Thai for sure .

“Delicious food, beautifully presented by attentive staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

Ate here for several meals while staying at the hotel. The chef and staff do a great job - each dish is practically a work of art. We enjoyed every dish. The setting overlooks the pool in the busakorn wing at the rear of the hotel property so the location is very close to Ratutit Songroypi Rd.
Bravo Charm Thai!

“Peaceful, good food, good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

The atmosphere here is one of quiet serenity. The decor is both modern and classic, depending on where one is seated; there are options for indoor, terrace and outdoor dining areas. The staff are friendly and not pushy. The food is excellent and the prices slightly less than you expect from a resort hotel in the middle of the holiday area.

“Good food & service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

Stayed at the Holiday Inn in January and visited Charm Thai twice, found the service and food to be great. Pricier than local places nearby but if you want a relaxing setting without the hustle and bustle of the street it is worth it. Advise you to book if you want a seat on the terrace as it fills up quickly in the evenings, great view overlooking the swimming pool. I had the red duck curry and my husband has a crab curry, both were good and the staff check how spicy you want your food which is helpful. Overall a nice experience.
