“Consistently good over the past 6 years...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2010

We have been visiting Palm Cove every few months since 2004 & always try and book in one night at Choc Dee Thai Restaurant.

Tavit, the owner / chef (Thai) is friendly & food has been consistently good.

Last night, the four of us shared green chicken curry, pad satay, duck tamarind & prawn curry with roti, plain & coconut rice - all superb.

But, we simply enjoy the open-air atmosphere, good selection of beverages & just a great time - something we experience every time we go.

Enjoy Choc Dee....

“Food and service are amazing! Don't miss out on this gem.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2010

The service is perfect. The owner is so friendly, and came to talk to everyone in the restaurant. We felt very welcomed and appreciated.
The food and atmosphere is amazing. We ordered several dishes and shared them. We ate every last bit - and they were large servings - but they were so good we couldn't stop!
The decor is beautiful, you feel you're in Thailand by the beach.
Don't miss it!

“Basic Thai food, was ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2010

The ambiance of this restaurant was good. The staff was very pleasant and the food was ok. Nothing spectacular, just basic Thai currys and such. A bit pricey for what they offer, but they are in the norm with other restaurants in the area

“Scrumptious!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2010

We dined here two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our meal both times. The staff were friendly and the atmosphere was very charming. Like all places in Palm Cove the prices are quite high for both drinks and food but we didn't mind paying the money for great quality food and service, would highly recommend!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2010

Food is good, thai cooks out the back (I think the owners), the ambience and location of the restaurant are really nice.

Dishes are quite expensive comparing to other thai restaurants but I guess this has to be expected for palm cove.
