Funky Thai restaurant. Absolutely gorgeous food and nice venue. Cocktails were great too. Worth checking out the specials on the board. Would definitely return and recommend.
great food chill vibes easy going staff. I enjoyed the green chili and would recommend Chalawan to friends. I will also come back again! Thanks
Delicious fresh Thai food and great service and atmosphere. The wine list is a bit overpriced but still worth a visit - get the pork belly with Chinese broccoli!
Great food , lovely service. We will definitely be back for more. The oysters alone was worth coming in for. The lime sorbet mixes so well with the house made chillies.
We had a very pleasant dinner for four at Chalawan. The staff were friendly and helpful and service was fairly prompt on a busy Friday night. To me, the cooking, especially in the curries, is a little bit heavy on the palm sugar, but that didn't stop the food being good. The bill was about $50 per head including drinks.
I used to love this restaurant for its inspiring, unique food and good cocktails. However, this time around they completely changed the menu to be similar to the other typical Thai restaurant. The food is nothing to remember of though the cocktails are still nice. The place must have changed the chef or something. In any case, it is such a shame that the menu has changed and there is no unique thing about its food anymore. I probably won't go back there again as I can find the same or better food like this somewhere else at a better price. It has almost no reason for me to go back and pay such a premium to such a normal Thai food. Also, in between our meal, the restaurant decided to turn off the aircon and leave the door opened instead. It was such a hot night and we sat inside the restaurant sweating making the night much less enjoyable :(
I Facebook messaged Chalawan prior to going to ask if they did a banquet menu and I was told that they did. On arrival we were told that this was only available if prebooked and paid for online. Service was haphazard, food was good and the wine was half price so that was a nice bonus.
Chalawan had absolutely yummy food and we can't wait to go back again. Betel leaf crunchy bites, crisp fried calamari, juicy pork. Loved the mohito.
The only reason Chalawan doesn't get a full score from me is that they ran out of oysters during happy hours. Other than that... GREAT!
Went with party of 4, service was quick and friendly. We were there mostly for the oysters. They were fabulous! The chilli lime oysters were fresh and super tasty. Everything else was good as well, with a special mention for the Sam Grob. Will certainly be returning.
