Cranford Street AB is our closest and we always get takeaways from here. We had a lovely meal again tonight. I can highly recommend the Goat Supreme and Venison & Portobello Mushroom curries. We also had a garlic naan and onion bhajees with the portions all being very generous. I certainly wouldn't hesitate recommending this place, it's always yum!

Average tasting Indian, was enjoyable but have had better and kitchen seemed slow for the half full venue. Indian food is usually a bit more special, seemed toned down. Still felt full and staff were attentive.

We came here as a small group of three. The service was very good (very friendly waiter) and the food delicious. It was too much for most of us to finish, you get a good sized portion well worth the money. Definitely a good, authentic Indian dining place

We dined here on Saturday night before going to a movie and were glad we'd made a booking, it was packed! This made it a bit noisy as there was a large group but it was still fine. We had the shared platter (samosa, bhajee, lamb mince stick and chicken tikka) for entree and then shared the pork, kumara and... More

After getting to Christchurch an hour and half later then we had wanted to, we ended up at Arjee Bhajee at around 8.45pm for something to eat. It had been a long day and bed was beconning, but the staff were lovely and although we only ordered a platter of starters for 2, were friendly too. There were 4 different... More

I had a very enjoyable meal here after choosing the restaurant solely on the basis of its contemporary appearance from the street. The service and food lived up to this first impression. The staff were consistently nice, attentive and available. The food was delicious, fresh and nicely spicy. I had the chicken butter cream with garlic naan and could not... More

There are a lot of Indian restaurants in Christchurch now days and most are much of a muchness. Arjee Bhajee stands out from the rest with their brilliant customer service, great food and value for money. We have become regulars of Arjee Bhajee on Cranford Street because of this and can't recommend them enough! The store has a great modern... More

We eat curry regularly at home and were pleased to find this restaurant close to our hotel. We both enjoyed our curries very much.

We were touring NZ for four weeks so this review is from Feb 14th. It was Valentines Day and we had a shortlist of restaurants that we found to be booked. We found a pub and a restaurant or two near our hotel that didn't inspire us and ended up ringing Arjee's from our hotel and got booked in. We... More
