Freshly made spring rolls and spicy Tom Yum soup with prawnsbto start with set the tone for an excellent meal.
Finished with Garlic prawns and a delicious Thai green chicken curry.
All authentic flavours
Staying in Marahau there are only two eating out options and one of those is closed on Monday’s and Tuesday’s, luckily Motueka is only a short drive away.
We’d been in Motueka on Monday and picked up the Chokdee takeaway menu as we’d walked past,...it looked pretty good and other reviews on Trip Advisor were promising.
Tuesday night we arrived about 6.30pm and asked for a table for two, we received a friendly greeting and were directed over to a table. A few moments later a different staff member came over with menus. We were left to peruse the menu which is quite large, we were already somewhat familiar with it having studied the takeaway menu. After a short time we were approached and our orders taken. I had the P4 Stir Fry Fresh Ginger with chicken and my partner had the C6 Pineapple Red Curry with pork and he always orders his Thai Hot.
When the meals came out they were both a decent size, we hadn’t eaten much that day so we easily finished them. Both dishes had lots of yummy vegetables and mine had plenty of chicken whilst my partners had plenty of pork and pineapple and it was Thai Hot without losing the flavours of the dish.
There was a small dessert menu and for my partner it was a toss up between the deep fried banana and the black sticky rice pudding. He opted for the black sticky rice pudding as not many places do it. He said it was really nice, it was certainly a good size dessert.
A few other people came in after us so the restaurant was about half full. The front of house staff although very young were very attentive and were checking to make sure people were ok and happy with their meals. We were quite impressed as they were consistent with their friendly efficient service to everyone throughout the evening.
We really enjoyed our meals and the service and would highly recommend you visit Chokdee.More
We went for a family birthday meal for 6 people. It was a bit last minute booking and they managed to squeeze us all in comfortably.
We had the starter combo and even ordered extra prawn toast, which was amazing :).
The main meals were...equally tasty and the drinks were reasonably priced.
Overall a great evening out.More
Nice to see you can find an authentic Thai restaurant in Motueka. The restaurant is spacious and clean, the server was as you would expect friendly and efficient. I ordered the beef fried rice and my wife the chicken satay which were delivered promptly. Both...were generous servings and tasty and we walked away happy.More
Lovely property, superb garden. Jenny & Ray live on the front & the stay is at the back in a long, quite narrow building, spotlessy clean. It has all that’s needed for a stay with some extra’s, perc coffee, leafed tea, sauce, peanut butter etc....great bathroom, very light & airey, fab shower. Garden is lovely to sit out in, very tranquil. Location is a little out of town, too far to walk to town centre so we ate in the garden. Sea is at the bottom of the garden! Bed nice & comfy. A very enjoyable stay.More
Staff and food were both excellent. Lots of things on the menu could be made gluten free. I had the red curry which was so good we went back again. My partner really liked his curry too. Will definitely go back if we are in...the area again.More
Exceptional authentic Thai dishes.
Seafood was fresh, generous and great servings.
All the dishes were great serving sizes - not too big and not too small.
Highly recommend the Tom Kha soup.
They’re very busy all week days so I’d recommend booking, arriving early and...anticipating a possible wait.
Funky colourful interior.More
