In a previous review, I noted that all foreign-owned restaurants in Bangkok had (in less words) the least authentic food quality in comparison to their native countries or simply utter garbage. That observation was meant to only apply to the Sukhumvit area (with exception to the fast food chains). Which with places like The Terminal (varies, but definitely more of a hit & miss), The Black Swan, Viva Via, 99% percent of the restaurants in & around the Redlight areas, etc.., are insulting and/or nauseous for eating. Tonight on Soi 19, I stand corrected.

Walked by this place several times, thought it to be just a small bakery/cafe from a distance, but tonight took a closer look & saw a menu just outside. Been here 3 days & my stomach was in complete revolt from trying out different places that fooled the customers with false pictures & ingredient descriptions. This place, Chez Charlie was elegant in presentation, service was good & I was able to speak normal English (compared to simple English) without issue. I have a food allergy, so I let it known & it was understood immediately...the food was made to my liking. Being wary due to past experiences with the restaurants around Asoke/Sukhumvit area, I chose something simple - beef bolognese pasta, smoked salmon organic salad, glass of white wine & a double expresso after. All superb & very satisfying, returning my energy levels to normal. The house wine was distinct with real flavor (rather than what I got elsewhere...which was colored vinegar)....

....truly a delight. Highly recommend.

As an official tour guide here in Bangkok, I thought I knew of all the important eateries in the city, so I was very pleasantly surprised when I discovered Chez Charlie's, a French bistro a few steps west of Sukhumvit on Soi 19. This cozy little spot features the most delicious dishes including a variety of authentic French crepes, fresh baked croissants, organic sorbets, and some outstanding stews all at quite reasonable prices. The owner, khun Narumol, a graduate of the famous French culinary academy, Gordon Bleu, has created an unusual atmosphere and ambience that is truly addictive for those souls who demand only the very best. In the week since my discovery I have sampled most every dish offered and am delightfully surprised on each occasion. This is definitely a place not to be missed.

One could easily miss Chez Charlie because of its unassuming exterior. When you walk in though, you'll feel like you're in another city altogether. The food wasn't anything to rave about, but it was a good place for a break from all the shopping.

Good onion soup and very fresh juices. Crepes are above average. Close to T21 so pretty conveniently located.
