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?

The food was tasty and hot. Not a fancy restaurant but the food was good and the service friendly. Just across the Big Orange Bridge.

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

Since good chinese food is nearly impossible to find in BC's interior we thought "lets try Amanda's " Filled with hope and haunted by mixed reviews we ordered and the pleasant and well informed server happily served us a very disappointing, tasteless and somewhat greasy excuse for chinese food it stopped just short of being returnable the menu is extensive...
