03 545 9388

Serving authentic Thai food prepared in the traditional manner, using only the freshest ingredients from the Nelson region.

It's a chilled and colourful kind of establishment. Playful orange and yellow walls sit nicely along with rustic furniture and oriental statues, giving the place an open-hearted feel. Relax in those cafe vibes while you casually take a trip around the whole of Asia.

Over at Golden Bell, the classics are done right. You won't have tasted a green curry like it, nor will you try a forest or jungle curry with such intense flavours. Another world-famous addition is the pad thai, but if you fancy going off the beaten track, how about the street noodles or wok section that's full of sizzling (sometimes literally) dishes.

For something really authentic, their special dishes include deep-fried scallops, a steamed whole tarakihi and a massaman lamb rack. What's more, all noodle and rice dishes can be customised for vegans and vegetarians! Cheers to that!
