Decided to try the new Cranford St restaurant as it is very local for us. Really impressed with the meal and the service. Garlic naan was the best I have ever had. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Will definitely go back and try some of the other dishes on the menu!

Walking past this place after the movies at Riccarton we called in for dinner. We were greeted at the door and shown a table very promptly, offered a menu and our drinks taken.

The manager at the restaurant was very friendly. The food tasted fresh and good, with no or limited preservatives. They even had plenty of gluten-free options for the person in our group who was allergic to gluten.

$10 curry in a box takeaway, what an awesome idea and very convenient. I really liked this as often we order Indian and there's far too much to eat in one go. This was the perfect amount of food, deliciously good and very well priced. This concept should spread!!

My wife and I visited this restaurant as we looked up for the top 25 restaurants in CHC at the time in October 2014 and were eager to visit as this restaurant was in top 25 at the time. But as you can see they have allowed themselves to slip from that spot. We visited for lunch and had an... More

Hi Jainik Thank you for your feedback and do accept my apology in regards to your experience at Arjee Bhajee. The stone in your Bhajee was quite concerning and there was a report filed in October which has been reviewed as the process of making the Onion fritters is very systematic and tedious. We take utmost care to ensure the... More

Tried the new restaurant just opened in Cranford St, started well, service was quick and attentive for the entree & main courses but declined rapidly after that, the restaurant had emptied during our meals so when we had finished and thought about dessert there were only us (table of 7 people) in the restaurant. We sat and waited for a... More

By down to earth I do not want to denegrate the place; the service is excellent and quick, almost too attentive, and the decor is modern with no hint that it actually is an Indian place to eat..The menu is a short one; no more than about twenty mains, and half a dozen starters. All though is cooked very well,... More
