We took our teenage daughter who is a fussy eater. The food was very good, and the service was lovely. It was very reasonably priced too.m would definitely recommend to others and would definitely go back again.

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

The menu for lunch was lacking compared to other Thai restaurants in the area. We ordered the spring roll entree which was lovely, a satay chicken as a main which was nice but again small in portion compared to other places and the pad thai lunch main which was very bland and had WAY too many bean sprouts and not...

To start, let me say the food was delicious. However, we had a waitress on her first night. That in itself shouldn't be a problem but it was. She didn't understand when I chose a seafood option, my wife detected that so we both repeated, seafood. Blank look, and I got a vegetarian. That was sent back, but what did... More

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
