Guests at our hotel recommended Char Ming and we were so pleased we followed their advice. Yes, it was a quiet night as in most places in Sanur, but the service was attentive and welcoming and we had such a good meal. My husband had escargots which he said were delicious and I had the baked salmon. Could not fault... More

Really disappointed with our visit given the rating this place has on TripAdvisor. Restaurant was about 10% full but service was slow and the waiter was really grumpy when we asked to move outside to get some breeze. The Escargot were delicious, but otherwise food and pricing was average, could have got the same meal for a lot less in... More

Great food. Don't let the apparently higher prices put you off, they include all taxes, so nothing more to add. The wild mushroom soup was really good. Wife had Fish which she enjoyed, I had ribs which were well cooked. The service was top notch, so much so that we visited twice

We ordered 4 dishes. Escargot and foie gras are our favourite. The two that is disappointing are shrimp avacado and fresh mozzarella. The thousand island drown the natural flavor of shrimp and avacado. We suspect the tomato is hydroponic hence lack of flavor. We enjoy our evening, especially the music.

Offers variety of food, western style. The food itself is good, but I considered it a bit overpriced. Overall, it's a good experience, but not sure to be back again. Might as well try others who offers more or less similar ambiance and foods.

We were a bit disappointed by our meal. The restaurant is beautiful with lovely pieces from Mr. Ming's private collection. Another table was celebrating a birthday and the staff did a fantastic, entertaining, loud, Balinese birthday celebration. This could be a great place for a celebration - if you don't eat! Food was a little pricey and not up to... More

The wonderful team at Pondok Ayu where we were staying recommended Charming for our anniversary dinner. The band were fantastic, the food was great, the service was five star and the atmosphere was wonderful. We ordered the Indonesian sampler for 36000 ($36 AUS) and there was SO MUCH FOOD! We also had a lovely bottle of red wine and we... More

We have only positive things to say about the Charming restaurant - from the complementary pickup (and return) @ our hotel to the service-minded and friendly staff to the brillant band playing as well as the charming decor. Go spoil yourself!

Astonishing food, astonishing service and a five star band. Perfect atmosphere to bring your partner to a romantic dinner. Price is a little high but I promise you it is worth it.

Thank Patrick S
