Definitely genuine tasting food. Goat supreme was very tasty and something I would not cook at home, so husband thoroughly enjoyed it. The Vanta was also very tasty, but felt it was a bit soft in texture, but no complaints and would order again. Great value. Thank you for excellent service.

Went with a mate and enjoyed the Bhajee, venison and chicken curries. Great naan bread too, which is always a good sign. Next time I'm in Christchurch I'll be back 😀

We had the Venison with Portobello Mushroom and the Goat Curry at the Riccarton restaurant. The rice is included the price of the meal, which makes it really good value. Both dishes were delicious. We actually looked at the Cranford location and were turned off - it is basically uninviting as a dine-in location. Fortunately we were driving along Riccarton... More

My husband and I stopped by arjee bhajee on a recent visit to Christchurch. The place was full but service was quick and excellent. We had lamb vindaloo, which was solid, and the goat curry, which was excellent. Prices were reasonable and it was great to enjoy our wine with the $5 corkage fee.

This was a wonderful little place at Christchurch serving great Indian food. Perhaps one of the better Indian food restaurants we had come across on our trip to NZ

Visited with my g adventures tour group. Great food and menu choice. Service very slow. Starters and mains came out together, drinks too ages. Nice decor and atmosphere. Location good.
