This is a good KFC with prompt service. But it's in Tahunanui and there is no KFC closer to Nelson proper. This KFC opened back in the late 1970's I believe and they still can't manage to iopen another in Nelson itself? C'mon Restaurant Brands.

This would have to be the best KFC we have ever had. The chicken was cooked to perfection and the staff were friendly.

The food is not good and the sauces are over done. The tables are not cleaned regularly and the drive trough is slow.

no in between, k-fry nelson is renowned for it's ridiculous wait times and uncleanly facilities. The staff are either super friendly or super NOT friendly, it is either tasty or awful and 9 times out of 10 the order won't be correct. real mixed basket.
