You only need to see the number of local Thai people who eat here to know it's the place to go. Great food, great service, lovely friendly hosts...we go there often.

we arrived at the Golden Bell in horrible weather, and was welcomed by the friendly and considerate waitress. The chef tailor made lunch at mum's request. We were all very happy with our food. The decoration of the place is beautiful and calming. Best Thai restaurant I've been to in NZ! if we are back in Nelson again, we'd definitely dine here again!
The tables next to us were having birthday celebration. The staff has arranged special birthday decoration for them. The food service appeared to be very fast for the birthday crowd.

The menu is extensive and the food testes great but the decor is pretty scruffy and needs updating. The staff are very pleasant.

We have been to Thailand and love Thai food. This was better than a lot of the stuff we had in the country, or ever. We had the cashew and vegetable chicken and Penang curry. I dont know which one I'd recommend more. Both were outstanding.

The restaurant itself is quite dated and could use some updating. So I wouldn't take anyone here that you're trying to impress, but the food is well worth the visit, and if we were here longer we'd come back again and again.
