Busy little restaurant on the night (may have been many people using their Grab One Vouchers) but the service was still very good and the portions were more than generous. Food is typical Thai and full of flavor so we were not disappointed. Really enjoyed the entree of satay chicken kebabs. Just a note if you ask for a double... More

Four of us visited the Golden Bell. We all thought the food was excellent. The dishes had lots of fresh ingredients, and were cooked so they were still a little crisp and firm. They used just a nice amount of spice to make the dishes piquant or tangy but not so you had to reach for the water jug. The... More

Came here to get takeaways, massive menu with a lot of selection and the portions served are equally as huge! I made the mistake of ordering the Deep fried spring rolls, expecting 4 or 5, got 10, and Chicken Satay on rice for main which was enough for two meals! Staff were friendly, even offered me a set of glasses... More

I had satay sticks to start followed by a pineapple curry with pork. I love Thai food at any time but this was the best I have ever had. To finish we enjoyed deep fried banana in pastry. Others in our group had green chicken curry and traditional pad Thai. All meals were delicious.

After a movie we popped in for a curry and were pleasantly surprised to find good service - as soon as we walked in we were greeted and seated. Waitress popped back with menu and drinks list giving us just the right amount of time to decide on our choice of satay chicken dish. Our meals arrived soon after and... More

We had a family meal after doing the Able Tasman coast track. It was the place we choose for a celebratory meal. Lovely meal and good service. Was pleased we went there.

Visited using a $39 (2 course for 2 people voucher). Food was great. The quantity was such the our doggy bag gave us enough food for dinner in our motel on the following night. Also BYO with a minimal corkage charge. Well worth a visit especially if you can get some sort of discount deal.

We went here for lunch. The price was excellent $12 for a large serve which was more than enough. We asked for Thai style and it tasted great. It is value for money. Clean, great staff, fast and yum
