“Good food - good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2010

Have eaten here on and off for 10 years or more and the food is consistently good. Service may be a little slow if there on a busy night.

“Best Thai in Katoomba”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2010

We reviewed the whole restaurant scene of Katoomba before having dinner here. Katoomba has many restaurants, however many of them are cafe type of establishments rather than restaurants.

Chork Dee also is a very informal place. Unlike in many Thai restaurants, you do not see an overwhelming Thai decoration. The decor is actually quite plain, which I did not mind at all.

The menu is a typical Thai treat. Prices are quite affordable and dishes good sized. Everyhting we ate was delicious and very carefully prepared, so you don't come across overcooked veggies or prawns here (at least I firmly believe so).

Service was very friendly, not always top attentive, but the restaurant was packed when we visited. Nothing to complain here, however if you are looking for Thai decor to pimp your meal, go somewhere else. But, you probably need to compromise in the quality of food!

Definitely warmly recommended, and I also advise you to join the queu. This is a BYO place and a store is conveniently located just around the corner.
