Nelson has sveral Thai restaurants and most are pretty good. Chockdee is one of the better ones, despite the garish decor outside. All the meals we have had there have been tasty and a good size.

Who would have thought that we would find such good Thai in Moteuka? Tom Yum soup to start was outstanding & then Penang curry & Crispy Pork Belly. Exceeded our expectations.
