Had dinner here last night, was a bit taken back by other reviews but go and try it. No problems here, fish cakes and mussels are terrific, Thai beef salad even better, my wife had laksa and said it was okay. Be warned if you don't like it too hot take it back a notch by talking to the waiters.... More

Can't say we enjoyed our meal here! We were asked how spicy we wanted our food, we chose hot but not Thai hot. They got that right but there was no flavour from the ingredients other than the chilli. This wouldn't have been quite so bad if it hadn't been really expensive. I can say the waitress was lovely, the... More

We were not disappointed with Choc Dee! Very nice and clean Thai food! Green chicken curry was very tasty (we got medium and it was pretty spicy!) And chicken satay was yum!!

We tried this restaurant because we love Thai food and although not all reviews were good we thought we would give it a go. This was the worst Thai food we have EVER had. We ordered a Penang curry and a yellow curry both at medium spice (we can handle spice) what came out was two dishes that tasted EXACTLY... More

Hi Sir, Thank you for your comment and we do apologise on our behalf. Our "medium" is Thai level, as stated in the menu, and it suits most of our customers' preference; unfortunately not yours but we are taking your comment into account and will recommend customer next time about the heat. Our waitresses have tried their best every night,... More

I am glad we chose to dine here as the food is sensational, staff very attentive and the ambience is really nice. Comfortable seating and the sound of the crashing waves just add to the experience- Roti was flaky and delicious 😋 we will definitely be back!

We were hesitant to try this restaraunt based on some of the reviews on Trip Advisor however it was convenient as we were staying at Peppers. The food was fresh and large serves we had leftovers for the next day. The waiters were very friendly and our food came out in good time, we would definitely return.

This restaurant has an ideal location which is let down by the quality of the food. We ordered three dishes and asked that they be on the mild side as this was the preference of three of the four diners. To cover my needs I asked for the option of chilli on the side. Unfortunately 'mild' translated to tasteless and... More

Choc Dee Thai Restaurant is located in the Peppers Beach Club in Palm Cove. We were recommend by our friends to try the Thai. Very beautiful and romantic place to eat with the view of beach and open doors. We were served very quickly and had three dishes of Thai food with steam rice. We could have had two dishes... More

Casual beachfront dining, central location with seating of approximately 84 pax, authentic Thai cooking by Thai Nationals. Very reasonable costings from approximately $10 to $32.00 for dine in patrons, also available the same menu for takeaway with costings from approximately $9 to $23.00. Very reasonable drink prices with a wide selection of beers and wines. BYO wine charge at $6.00/bottle. Choc Dee's specialities include Sunee's world famous Tamarind Duck, or my favourite the Seafood Pineapple Curry, all dishes may be ordered from Extra Mild, Mild, Medium, Hot or Thai Hot, but beware our spice levels are high.
