“They have moved across the street”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2011

This restaurant has moved from the beachfront location, about 500 meters north on the ring road, across the street. The new location is spacious, and the food is still quite good. Recommended.

“Best seafood in the world!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2011

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at the Impiana Resort in Koh Samui and Charming restaurant is just a short stroll along the beach.

We ate here 5 times in 5 days. The best seafood ever!!

We picked our fresh seafood from a boat filled with ice, sat on beach chairs with our feet in the water watching the sun go down, eating all the seafood you can think of. Crab, lobster, calamari, prawns (giant!) etc.

We asked them to choose how our food was cooked, and they suggested to have crab in the black pepper sauce. OMG! Best taste we have ever tried! We have tried cooking it many times since coming home, but can't match it! We would go back to Koh Samui just to eat here!

“Charming all round”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2011

Due to the fantastic reviews on trip advisor we made sure we paid this little treasure a visit as we remembered it when it was originally based on Chaweng Noi beach before it moved. We were not disappointed.
1. Food is excellent.
Like a few other reviews I recommend the massaman curry !
2. Service is perfect and very attentive and helpful.
3. Prices are very reasonable.

Hope you enjoy your visit as much as we did.

“Great food, Great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2011

We went looking for this restaurant, which is no longer on the beach, after reading the previous reviews and it was as most people stated: very hospitable staff, good choice of dishes and not expensive either. Well worth a visit
