We come here often, usually with kids. The food is consistently good, service always friendly. They are happy to serve our young son a side dish (fried rice) which makes an excellent meal for small kids. The lunch menu is great value and the dinner...More

Fish cake entree was outstanding. Ginger stir fry with fish good, salted caramel dessert delicious. Good range of wine and beer. Spacious, I estimate 70 seats for diners. Chairs are not very comfortable. Service went awol for a while despite small numbers of diners.

Had the Phad Thai for lunch here and it was good value and delicious. Also tried their Mango with sticky rice dessert which was also pretty good. Food came out pretty fast and there was good ambience.

Large restaurant with lots of tables. We had a new waitress who unfortunately was not familiar with the menu which caused a few problems. The food was lovely, large portions. Not a great atmosphere, could be better decorated but this does not affect the food.

A regular at Chokdee's. At least once a week. Always share the Roti duck with mardarin sauce starter - would recommend. In my opinion, this is certainly one of the best Thai in Nelson.
