There was a huge que out to the door and the service was very slow. I had to cross traffic in and out of carpark to get from main road to shop and back

We travel a lot and use McDonald's a lot because they are always consistent - we know what to expect, and what it will cost - they are a great asset to the traveller :-)

Dry, overcooked and stale. Hopefully just a bad day but should be consistent especially at dinner rush.

Very handy for a quick takeaway. Was very busy so chicken was cooked fresh. Service very good. We used twice and was not disappointed.

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.
