“The food was fantastic, highly reccomend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

We've done quite a bit of Thai and this was fantastic. Had a pineapple type curry and my wife had Phad Thai. Both were out of this world. Service was good and the place was very busy on a Tuesday night. Would definitely return. Prices were reasonable. For Americans all prices in NZ are a little high.

“Great food, great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

Highly recommended. Pleasant atmosphere, excellent service, great food (duck red curry was excellent!) and reasonably priced as well.

We had a five year old with us and it was still relaxing.

“Great Thai Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

Have been to Chokdee many times and it is always good. I have been once to the new premises and agree with the other reviewer that some blinds would be good as the sun is very intense. The food is still the same good quality.

“Really amazing Thai food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

This is some of the best Thai food I have ever eaten outside of Thailand. The spring roll entree is to die for! Charming waitresses and great service make this a very special night out. Maybe some blinds to block the evening sun would be good as it is very glary looking towards the windows.

“Always excellent soups and Thai dishes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

We visit this charming Thai restaurant regularly when we are in Nelson each year and have NEVER been disappointed. The wait staff are lovely and the excellent food is very reasonably priced and arrives perfectly spiced, within minutes of ordering. We go at LEAST once per week for luncheon and always enjoy the experience. They have recently expanded and the space is somewhat less intimate but nonetheless, charming.
