Surprising little place!

Been passed this place many times on Moorhouse Ave and decided to call in saturday night for a bite to eat. It was smaller than I expected but the ambience was good, the staff helpful and all in all it was a surprise. Music was good too.The food was very good and well presented. Will go again.

Went here with a friend after getting a Grabone voucher. I'd heard how good it was and loved the presentation on the website, thankfully was not disappointed. The menu has several different options, from small bites, to tapas, and great desserts. The presentation of each dish was beautiful and very appealing, taste was beyond any Japanese I've ever had and... More

Great place for drinks. I'd head back - friendly staff and nice atmosphere. Steep prices for cocktails though - $18 for an expresso martini... The Monday Room was quiet on Sunday at about 8:30, but we were warned that it becomes the 'go–to' place for hospo staff in Christchurch, given that it's their only night off... So be warned!

That's go with the good: the service was friendly and warm, the decor was above average. And that's all I can really say about the place. I took my wife there after buying its coupon from GrabOne, and the description left me thinking it's a fusion restaurant of a certain level of class and quality. The expectation I had was... More

Everything about The Monday Room is fabulous - the decor, the food and the staff! Called in to enquire about having a function here and the owner and staff could not do enough to help us. Nothing was a problem that they could not overcome. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was yummy and I will most certainly... More

Went for lunch, had a great selection of food Service was attentive, but not over the top. Food came out fast, and as appropriate for tapas style, as it came (ie one by one) rather than all together. Made for a very enjoyable dining experience. Didn't try the wine list - but looked comprehensive. Cool building, with unique look inside... More

The flavours were good but expensive for the size of plates. You need to order a few which adds up the price.
