Pretty good food and the waitress and staff were very friendly. Food was average to good. And the price was decent! Visit usually once while on vacation to Nelson.

We had 22 people so it took a bit longer with such a big crowd but the restaurant was packed and there was a line up out the door for take out. Very tasty. Parking is a bit lacking. If they weren't so tasty that wouldn't... More

Love this place! Every single time it is fantastic. The best Chow mien noodles ever, wonderful deep fried prawns and great almond Chicken. Big menu, super nice staff and great food. What more could you ask for?

Stopped here with my Mom, for lunch, as we were on a day trip. Mom and I both had sweet & sour chicken, and it was delicious. Service was fast and friendly, atmosphere was comfortable, and we could see that many locals made it a regular stop. I'll definitely return next time I'm in the area. We received generous portions...

Amanda's is probably in my opinion the best restaurant in Nelson. We have been coming here for awhile & I will recommend this restaurant & items on the menu anytime. The staff is very friendly & knowledgable. The service is superb! A definite place to stop & eat while visiting or living in Nelson.

I don't usually get bad reviews but this was the worst food I've ever had. The pork was so hard you couldn't even cut it with a knife. They did replace it with the chicken which was not much better. It was close to our hotel and had great reviews but I don't understand how they could be good when... More
