We went here for lunch. The price was excellent $12 for a large serve which was more than enough. We asked for Thai style and it tasted great. It is value for money. Clean, great staff, fast and yum

Not a bad Thai restaurant pretty much in the centre of Nelson, The food came pretty fast and they had a good wine selection at reasonable price. Not strictly authentic Thai but pretty good for the price, Needed a little more spice.

Would of rated lower if I could. Waited 1 hour before we got our food, then got our entree another 15 minutes later. We weren't given water or cutlery till after our food had been served. Food was average for price, but not great. The woman who served us was rude. We also had a booking and didn't get seated... More

We've had a number of good meals here in the past and so were very disappointed when this latest meal was far short of our expectations. Glad to see that others have had better experiences, so hopefully this was a one-off but we had two starters and two mains and shared them. We both felt that they were all below... More

You might walk right by this restaurant but don't! Five of us had a terrific meal here. The bill was roughly $50. Great food, hot, beautifully and promptly presented. Highly recommend this establishment.

We can thoroughly recommend Golden Bell. We decided to get one of the grab one vouchers and head out for a date night. The entree was delightful and the satay kebabs would have to be the nicest satay we have ever had. The meals were served to us quickly, were very good value and tasted delicious. The chef accidentally put... More

My friends and I came to Golden Bell for a BYO and it was probably the best service I've had for a long time. Delicious food, friendly staff, and tidy premises. Highly recommend!
