I remember when chok Dee from when they first came into town, the food is still consistent and very nice be warned if you ask for Thai hot be prepared for bloody hot. The Thai ladies are so polite and offer good service that it made this dining experience a real pleasure.thank you chok Dee

Have now become a regular at Chokdee for a great takeaway green curry. The rest of my family will also vouch for the great food at a great price. We have dined in here also and the service was great

There is no wow factor. You would not run around recommending the place. The device is average. Price is average. Not much choice in drink selection. Place looked clean and tidy. There are many better Thai places in Nelson.

Really nice meal tonight and great we could finally take the kids too (aged 6 and 10) since the chicken satay is a firm favourite. Delicious curry and stir fry chicken, friendly attentive service and all around a nice family treat out. Only disappointment is the poor goldfish they have in a tank near the bathrooms with no weed or... More

They have a branch in Motueka as well. This is one of those Thai places that tries to hard to please non-thais.

The atmosphere location and service are all very good for a low priced Thai restaurant. What was a bit harder to take was the very poor quality of the fried rice dish we ordered. It tasted just like plain rice and I should know as we eat rice at home most days. The other noodle dishes were just OK. I... More
