We ordered food in our hotel, delivery was quick. Food was awesome, one of the best Indian food we had in NZ. This is all we needed after a long flight from India.

Really liked that they were hospitable, and happy to give us two curries without rice. Would have liked the possibility of either slightly larger dish, or discount for not getting rice. Would also appreciate not being interrupted on phone, to find out how food was - ie pick better time to come ask. All in all, a lovely clean restaurant... More

I am always apprehensive about Indian food, but to my surprise my meal was absolutely delightful as was my husbands. I had vegetarian and my husband had the dish with goat. The service was excellent as were the staff. The meals didn't take too long, lovely cool bottle of water and nothing was a bother and one was made to... More

Arjee Bhajee is a lovely indian restaurant on Riccarton Rd near Hagley Park. The food is beautiful. I go there every time I visit Christchuch. My personal favourite is the lamb saag. The staff are friendly and efficient. They do take away too.

The restaurant is warm and modern and the back ground music is just at the right level. We went on a Saturday and had not booked but they managed to get us a table even though they were busy. It did take a while to get served but the starters arrived quickly and were really tasty. But that is pretty... More

Was looking forward to a good Indian meal, but the menue is limited and it was just ok.. Not a problem if that's what you wanted.. But not a good menu overall.

Bought 3 vouchers off Grab one, rang and was able to book for 6, 1/2 hour before dining. Service was very good, always checking if everything was ok? Had 4 children with us, food didn't take long at all, was very happy with the service, the food and the restuarant, definitely be going back.

Went with a group of friends mid week, the booking we made wasn't recorded. Not many people in the restaurant but still took a long time for service. Took until our mains arrived before we got any water after asking numerous times. Ordered the banquet, reasonably priced. Curries were ok, nothing that stood out as amazing. The garlic naan wasn't...

Dear Customer Thank you for the feedback and letting us know where we are lacking. I understand your point in regards to your booking not being recorded, it has happened before where sometimes customers ring our other location in Christchurch and arrive and find that they have booked at wrong venue. We still try our best to accommodate them even... More
