Wow, the decor is amazing at Charming, lots of carved wooden panels, interesting statues and old photos. we were greeted with cold towels and a welcome fruit drink. We were given a little chair for our handbags and the best baby highchair we have had in Bali.
The food was well presented and tasty, and the staff warned us about the spicy vegie curry. I had the caesar salad, excellent and my companions had spring rolls excellant, the spicy soup excellent and tomato and mozarella stack.
a pleasant surprize was the complementary bread and dips which were flavoursome.
we were also given a complimentary lemonchello at the end of our meal.
I thought the prices were a bit high, but overall I was very impressed.

Went here twice on a recent trip to Bali. Food was great, cocktails were also very good. I recommend the Balinese prawns. Band was very entertaining and the ambience and decor is so warm and beautiful Thank you.

4 stars for trying. A well thought out menu but just didn't deliver the quality we were expecting at the price. Service is good, the decor and atmosphere are impressive, the food just lacks the "oomph" we were hoping for. Having said that, my partner had the best spring roll, lots of flavour and a lovely crisp shell. Canadian scallops with lobster broth, were cold and flabby by the time they got to the table. A forgettable meal in a memorable room.

Visited this establishment last night for the third time over the past 5-6 years & always enjoyed the experience until last night.
We chose the Escargots which we have tried here on previous visits. The flavour was ok but snails were not served in their shells which is half the dining experience.

Cocktails were awful, gin base was definitely Arak & not gin.

2 out of 4 main courses were just ok & the John Dory fish meal was rubbish.

Staff were disinterested & hard to communicate with.
On previous bookings at Char Ming, we were offered pick up & drop off service which was not offered.
We will not be returning to Char Ming.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary with 1 year old in tow last night. We had a fabulous evening and were very well looked after.

I loved the small details, such as the welcome drink, cold towel and bread and dip to start with. The food was also fabulous and so very cheap for a fancy restaurant by Australian standards! I had very delicious lobster - 700g of it for around $40.

We will definitely return!
