We stumbled upon this 'charming' little restaurant 5 years ago when it was located next to the Sarann hotel directly on Chawing Noi beach, easily Samui's cleanest and most beautiful waterfronts, and what a gem we found! We kept going back in latter trips to Samui literally daily during each stay for some delicious authentic Thai food cooked to perfection... More

Whithout hesitation reception recommended Charming which was only 150 metres from The Sheraton .The first night we went mad ordering 4 starters and a main each with noodles and rice... More

The spring roll was just ok. Thai papaya salad was not that great, too much MSG. Spicy seafood salad was just average. I found only shrimp and squid in my seafood salad. The service was good. One waitress who took the orders spoke English pretty good. Grill red snapper fillets was good. Beware there were a lot of mosquitoes.

Dined here twice and sure to come back. So far tried red snapper garlic/pepper sauce, blue crab curry, steak and various fried rices, curries and soups. Not sure why would anyone order a pizza and then complain about it, it's not an Italian joint. Not sure I'd drive here for a special night out (not much of an ambience), but... More

We ate a dinner at this place when we stayed in Chaweng Noi. Atmosphere was good, nice decor and a laid back style. Food was good too, service was better than average place. The main person knew English (and one two other languages) well, so getting vegetarian food was not an issue. We definitely recommend!

During my stay in Chaweng Beach I’ve ate several times in this restaurant and I highly recommend it. In my opinion if you try a restaurant and, from the service to the food, all is great, you should repeat. That’s what we did. In the night we arrived we went to this restaurant and the sympathy of the staff as... More

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. All the Thai food was delicious and inexpensive. Around $5 US per a dish. We asked for all our food "no spicy" and... More

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.
