Food OK lassie perfect

The food was nice but nothing outstanding. Shame you were not asked for the level of spice in your individual meal. Waiters were a bit impolite. They do the best mango lassie I ever had.

Delicious curry that was fresh and the onion bahjees were to die for! We had the chicken mekahni (sp?). Highly recommended!

If I'm going to have a curry I want a curry! Not something that tastes of nothing with no kick to it at all. I don't often complain at restaurants but I had to tell them that my curry tasted of nothing. They told me that they cater for the Kiwi palette (i.e. not very hot) but most Indians over... More

Dear SJN71 Thank you for your feedback and appreciate your time to review our business. I understand your concern about the flavour of curry at our restaurant as not much spicy , I would like to say that a lot depends on what kind or flavour of CURRY you have ordered. At Arjee Bhajee the menu very clearly specifies every... More

Flew in to Christchurch and stayed near Hagley Park. Wanted something simple and searched for local restaurants - this came up - what a treat!! Fantastic food - starter chicken tikka - very tasty and a massive portion and the main of chicken gurkhali was top quality. Also a very busy take away place so loads of options. Great staff,...

$10 for a lunch meal! Food OK. Disappointed that the food was basically precooked from what appeared to be a bought in sauce, rather than cooking with fresh spices. But for $10 can't really complain!

We went for an early dinner and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The service was very good and the food devine. Very nice decor too. It would have to be the best indian food we have had in a long time. The naan bread was like no other, the bhajee's were delicious and our curries were just faultless. We will go... More

I don't know why, but in 3-1/2 weeks in New Zealand, our two favorite meals were Indian food. This was just two short blocks from our hotel and was really delicious. There was some kind of fried ball that was an appetizer--I've forgotten the name--but I loved it. Took the extra one to the hotel with us, and to this... More

Having already read good reviews of Arjee Bhajee on Trip Advisor, we decided to try this restaurant for ourselves as it was close to where we were staying. We were not disappointed. The service was courteous, friendly and efficient, and the food was very good – although not, to our palettes, as hot as was claimed, but then we are... More
