Restaurant Review: Thai Charm


If you want to indulge in a range of authentic Thai cuisine, true to its name, Charm Thai will take your dining experience to the next level. Located in the Crowne Plaza Dubai Marina, the restaurant is located on the ground floor of the hotel, overlooking the Marina Pier. Whether you fancy tom yum soup or traditional pad thai or chicken satay, this restaurant has it all.

When you enter, the interior decor is modern and vibrant, with brightly colored murals on the walls and an open kitchen with hanging Thai umbrellas. After being greeted by warm and friendly staff, we embarked on the varied and innovative menu.

For their entrée, diners will feast on aromatic yum ma-muang goong (green mango salad), the classic nam tok nua (Thai beef salad) followed by poached scallops with a tangy plah sauce, while sipping an elegant and well-balanced organic Sauvignon Blanc from renowned Italian winemaker Livio Felluga. Moving on to the hot starters, the second course features tender stuffed calamari finished with Thai seafood vinaigrette, succulent lamb chops Thaibbq sauce or chicken meatballs with homemade sweet and sour sauce.

With the richness of the dishes deliberately ramped up for the main course, the dishes include Thai red curry with melt-in-your-mouth roast duck, succulent lobster sautéed in homemade chili sauce and herb-scented lamb chops with wok-sautéed noodles and their exceptional cocktails or mocktails on the side.

As for the main courses, we savored some of their signatures like the khai jeaw pu (Thai omelet with giant crabmeat and sriracha sauce), the gai yang charm thai (Thai grilled chicken served with Jim Jeaw sauce ) and kra prao nua – fried ground beef with hot basil sauce). All dishes were cooked to perfection, bite-sized with a lovely blend of textures and flavors. Vegetarians are also spoiled for choice.

Some of their specialties include som tum jay (green papaya with long beans, tomatoes, peanuts and tamarind dressing) and pad phak (stir-fried mixed vegetables). The traditional green curry with eggplant, coconut tip and mushrooms or the red curry with tofu, mushrooms and pumpkin were as mouth-watering and decadent as their meaty counterparts.

A traditional dessert Thai Sweet sticky rice with fresh mango and coconut ice cream is even more delicious when enjoyed with a glass of fragrant and well-balanced pale rose and peach rose frescobaldi ammiraglia alie and will provide a fitting ending to a truly memorable evening.
