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

Enjoyed the meal. Service was great. Nothing negative to say about this restaurant. But, for a cheaper option, try Sea Hag

“Great food, fantastic service and am unbelievably excellent ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is located in a very beautiful place and the choice of Thai food is excellent. You look over the very beautiful swimming pool in the buzakorn wing of the holiday inn patong. I enjoy the experience every time I go there.

“Best Food in Phuket”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

I did not stay at the Holiday Inn but I found out about this restaurant from Tripadvisor. Every dish that we ordered was amazing. This is not a restaurant to be missed. If I had more nights in Phuket, I would have eaten here again. This is a must in Patong!
