“Simply brilliant all round”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2010

Being avid Thai lovers that have nearly tried every Thai Restaurant in sydney we were very sceptical of this place. But what a find it was.

The food had good flavour and made good use of the great local produce. Service was probably the highlight with waiters being prompt and friendly.

Value was excellent and was very welcome after the wallet was hit hard with nearby restaurants in previous nights.

For some great Thai you wont be dissapointed.

“excellent Thai food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2010

We had the best Laksa( I know it's malaysian not Thai food) ever at this resturant last night. The red beef curry was also amazing. Ckicken satay for starters was also good but it was the Laksa that blew us away. We are going again tonight to try some of the othere dishes on the menu. We have struggled to find really good Thai food since a trip to Thailand spoiled us a few yeas ago. This place is very cl;ose to the amazing food we had in Thailand. Ask for a table at the front because the view is awesome even at night with the moon hitting the water. Truly romantic.

“not recommended”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2010

Was looking forward to a lovely thai meal in a lovely setting but was disappointed. Should've stopped at the entree. Main meals were ok but ingredients especially the meat (chicken and duck) didn't seem very fresh. Service was average, seemed to have a lot of young, inexperienced staff members - our wine (order during entree) still hadn't appeared when we were half way through the main meals so we cancelled it. Little overpriced for basic thai food.

“Consistently good over the past 6 years...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 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 bubbles 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!
