I really enjoyed my fresh Vietnamese salad witj Kumara chips rice and a beer. At NZD30 seemed a bit costly for what it was, but enjoyable.

Buddha Stix has lovely food and a large selection of food on their menu. I have eaten here twice, the first time eating Lemon Chicken which was beautiful (although I thought quite small) and thr second time a Thai Sweet Chili Chicken Salad which was delicious and a great size. Service is lacking, the waitresses are not very attentive (except... More

This is a busy restaurant, booking a table in advance is a good idea. The tables are close together and a little cramped. The food is above average, freshly made, with good flavours and the portions are large. When we went on a Saturday night the place was packed, the young staff looked rushed and the service was a little... More

Popped on for a quick bite to eat before flying out of CHCH. Food was great and very fresh tasting. Service upon our request was very fast. Have been here several times and it is always consistent. Can be a little noisy when busy

This is our favourite restaurant, we come here all the time. The entrees and main meals are exceptional! The deserts are rubbish. Recently their service has dropped off a bit but it could be due to being so popular and busy

This was easily the worst food experience I have had in Christchurch. We ordered the Jungle curry for take-out on a Friday night, as there weren't any tables available inside (which I took as a good sign). The first thing we noticed when we got home was that it stunk of MSG. It also looked nothing like any Thai curry... More

Team dinner. We were seated at a large round table at the back of the restaurant. Really comfy seating and a great space for convivial conversation. I had the fresh Vietnamese rice parcels as an entrée. 4 arrived packed with prawns and the right amount of fresh coriander to give it some punch. I had the prawn lakhsa for a... More

I can't remember the exact name of what I got but it was a stirfry with HEAPS of cashews. It was delicious, my boyfriend got a vegetarian pad thai which was also excellent. My meat eating friend got a pork pad thai. It had a lot of pork but no vegetables to give it some variety which she was a... More
