We've tried Chokdee a couple of times now on the basis of the generally good reviews, but don't think we're going to bother any longer. Meats have been overcooked, salads clumsy. Besides the so so quality, prices seem high for the portion sizes. The service has been OK but overall as far as value for money goes the noodle canteen... More

As frequent diners of chokdee nelson we always love the food but the service can be hit and miss. However recently there seems to be an entire new team of staff that really did have no idea. Hope they can sort it out as it is still a really good cheap and cheerful option for Nelson with byo at $6... More

Didn't have to book on a week night for 9 people , food was tasty, with yummy flavours and nicely presented. Restaurant was clean and tidy. wait staff all polite and well presented. One of our party had mixed up order and was offered a free drink and apology for the wait , the apology was genuine. Value for money

First night on a recent trip friends invited us to dinner, not disappointed, great choice on a cold winters night. We ordered a seafood, chicken, beef, duck dishes, all different spice levels. Mine was a hot seafood red curry, fresh vegetables and very little seafood however the flavor made up for this. I wouldn't order this dish again. The rest... More

This café ticks all the boxes. The food is consistently good, the staff are gracious and helpful, whether it is for a cheap yummy lunch or a warm inviting dinner you will leave this restaurant with your taste buds singing. I always go for mild and my husband chooses medium. Remember hot means Thai HOT!!! The cost of the food... More
