Although the location of this restaurant in Yaletown makes it unsurprising that the interior design is ultra cool, everything goes even one step further here. Keeping things classy, the stylish resto-lounge opted to drape the room with deep reds and dark wood. Sleek lines and dim lighting add to the chic atmosphere. Diners can choose from high backed booths, intimate tables for two or congregate around the bar. Also of note are the large gold gilded mirrors that make the room look twice as big.
Also known as Charm Modern Thai, the folks here really want you to be charmed. Aside from the name of the restaurant, it’s easy to see the appeal: authentic modern cuisine from Thailand, aromas to match the dishes, flavours with pizzazz, and hospitality to write home about. What also doesn’t hurt is the presentation of dishes, which is sure to win over even picky diners. Whether you decide to have a full sit down meal in the richly decorated ambiance or sample the signature cocktails and martinis at the bar and lounge area, it’s likely that you’ll be charmed into coming back for more.
It’s easy to see from the menu that the Chef is a well-travelled sort who picks up the best ideas from all over the world. Although the menu is distinctly Thai, there is a hint of Western influence, as well as tidbits of global inspiration. Appies cover chicken satay, Thai goong and por pia tod, but also features barbecued short ribs and a version of ahi tuna. Entrées consist of favourites pad Thai and pad phed lamb, while also including lobster and baby back ribs.
