We ordered the chicken & cashews, as well as rib fillet. The food was cooked to perfection. The best Thai food, I have eaten in Australia. Definitely worth a visit, when staying at Palm Cove. We will definitely be back 👍👍👍👍👍

Came here for dinner one evening. Very helpful and charming waitress who explained that the food was spicy. Good advice indeed. We like spicy food so we ordered the medium. It was great but we would not have wanted it any spicier. Great food and...portion sizes. Recommended.More

My husband and I shared the whole barramundi and red curry chicken, both were very flavoursome and tasty, the service was excellent and the atmosphere was really calm and peaceful, we could see the water from our table and that was a bonus too. Overall...we had a great meal and enjoyed our night at this restaurant and would visit again if I’m in Palm Cove .More

Had a great meal, lovely food - perhaps on the spicier side with lovely service from the waitresses - shame the owner was not interested in my experience there - just wanted the $$. Guess he was having a bad day :( then I read...a previous review and saw the management response as a customer felt the food was too spicy and I can understand why the reviewer thought management was arrogant. NOTE customer is always right, being rude won't get customers returningMore

Food was way to spicy for us even though we did order mild. As such we could not eat most of the meals. Our waitress was lovely and offered to recook, but we declined as we had eaten enough. Went to pay and the owner...put the bill in front of me and said please check. I asked if he wanted to know how our meals were and he stated he knows the food and not interested in our experience. You would think when you spend $100 on a meal they would at least show some interest. We will not return because of this person's arrogance. We will eat elsewhere from now on. Low star rating given purely because of the ownerMore

Talk about arrogance, our menu states that mild has a kick, if you could read English as most of our customers can, as well as my staff continually telling our customers that we are spicy.... proper Thai spice level. i did not say i was...More

Having spent some time in Thailand over the years, we really enjoyed the authentic Thai food at Choc Dee Thai. With an extensive menu, the food was fantastic and the staff were very clear on what level of spice to order for shared dishes. A...really great night out in Palm Cove.More

The service was outstanding and the food was orgasmic. The welcoming smile you get just for turning up at the restaurant deserves a cover charge The drinks were cold (they need to be if you order extra spicy) Don’t worry about the spice though as...there are five different spice levels to suit everyone The meals are served quickly and if you sit down at the front of the restaurant the view is outstanding Just remember my first sentence and go thereMore

Have previously given a bad review here, but this experience was great on two recent occasions. Staff were friendly and accommodating and food was very good, but with a catch. I like spicy food, especially the beef basil dish. When I ordered Thai hot, I...was warned and downgraded to hot with some fresh chilli on the side. Cue meals and a mouthful of food, with my extra chilli proceeded to teach me a lesson on how hot I can really handle. At this point my wife is less than impressed with my selection, something about me ruining our meal and showing off. The next day, mid morning, I was reminded once again how hot I’d ordered as things took a nasty turn and now I’m really starting to feel the error of my ways, if you know what I mean. Well, next night we went back because I had to make it right. Ordered mild/medium which was actually hot enough and very enjoyable. The whole Barra was superb, as good as the fish at Beach Almond or Spirit House. They did run out in the night so maybe good to preorder, it’s sensational. Anyway, a good night, great service and food.More
