Handily placed directly opposite Ravenscourt Park, Charm serves up regionally accented Thai food in a lavish setting of chandeliers, artefacts and extravagant floral displays. The char-grill
delivers strips of sun-dried beef, Thai pork sausages and marinated chicken wings (all served with ‘jiaw’ chilli-powder sauce), and the specials list also includes various takes on laab salad with
toasted rice, plus some unusual one-plate dishes – say braised pork hock with boiled egg, pickled mustard greens, chilli vinegar and rice. Otherwise, stay with familiar satays, tom yum soups,
curries, stir-fries and pad thai noodles or venture out of Thailand altogether for squid fritters with wasabi mayo, beef with oyster sauce or grilled back cod with mirin, tamarind and miso. A lush,
leather-clad lounge bar is perfect for cocktails or choice selections from the extensive, thoughtfully assembled wine list.
