Golden Bell Restaurant

Cuisine: Thai
Price Point: Mains from $20 - $35+

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!

We found the service excellent and the food superb, definitely the best Thai restaurant in Nelson. We had the baked Terakihi and the crispy duck for our mains and they were delicious and very filling, sadly no room left for dessert. Thank you for a lovely meal.

Amazing curries! Kind waitress who checked up on us a few times throughout to make sure we were happy. Only complaint is that they got my beer wrong, but no biggie.

Friendly service & delicious food. Even without First Table discount, the meals here are great value for money, our mains were huge, tasty & very well presented. I would definitely dine there again.

Overall first impression is appears dated and dull. We did eat the food we ordered but I would have to say it was not restaurant quality. I feel I could have got just the same quality at a cheaper price at a takeaway. Sorry will not be back.

Tough to rate as waitresses were welcoming but waited 45 min for entree and after 75 mins in restaurant asked about mains and were told another 15-20 mins. We declined as had prior engagement and had to leave. Restaurant was not busy and kids left hungry.

The only problem was the Time we had to wait for our plates. The waiter explained they had that evening only one Cook. I think if they would have a shortter menĂº it would.br easier to cook AND faster service. The menĂº was too long AND it took us a long time to decide. Less Is better!

While the staff were super friendly and polite the service was slow and lots of having to get others to assist. We ended up choosing options that we perceived would result in the least error.
The food was very tasty.

Delicious food with some unusual and interesting dishes on the menu enjoyed by all four of us.

We always enjoy dining here as the food is lovely. We enjoyed the spring roll entree with plenty to share. I had duck main, which although some of the meat was a bit dry, it had a lovely crispy tasty batter on it and it was a huge plateful. The two other meals were enjoyed as well, although both looked at my duck and wished they had that.

Great food at a great price

Nothing special but nothing terrible either. Just an average asian style restaurant. We were the only people in the place. It was the first night on the job for our german waitress so she lacked experience and confidence but you have to start somewhere. Her welcome and smile and professional maner more than made up for that. She should do well. There were four of us andthe meals arive one at a time over an eight minute space of time. Not great but the food was of a quality that this could be overlooked. We would go back again.
