We ate here on the 1st stop and were blown away by the quality of the Indian food on offer. The range of dishes is excellent with unusual meat ingredients used, such as goat and... read more

The food served is more authentic than many other Asian countries, not to mention it is in New Zealand. Staffs are very polite and helpful, giving enough warning if one ordered spicy dish. Dining area, while not fantastic, but is comfortable. Overall an awesome experience! Good stuffs!

We recently went to Arjee Bhajee Riccarton Road for a meal as part of our South Island NZ holiday. The Service was exceptionally friendly and fast,, but we did not feel rushed. The sauce and meat in the Pork Kumara & Spinach were great. We got seconds of the Garlic Naan !! Locals that I met after the visit confirmed... More

Although we didn't actually have any bhajis.... But a good find on a cool and darkening Autumn evening, comfortable seating with enough space to swing a naan, plus quick and attentive staff. Also they seem to have a restricted menu, as in restricted in the number of items, but in reality this isn't a bad thing as it means there... More

We wanted to pack some food for our flight back home so thought Arjee biryani would be a good option.. a little over priced for the food quality but portions were enormous

I eat here often, the service is reasonably fast and friendly. Food is great - be sure to request how spicy you would like your curry or it will just be standard. Good value for money.

We had a flight early next morning back to India so decided to pack a biryani. Decent biryani, good portion size but little on the expensive side. The place always seemed packed with indians and others alike

We're so happy our motel host recommended this establishment on Riccarton Road. One of the best Indian restaurants we've visited. The Chicken Makhani and the Garlic Naan were just great! Service was friendly and efficient and prices reasonable. Many of the menu items are available for take away as well. The interior is plain but clean. If we had spent... More
