Decent biryani to go!

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

What a great Indian restuarant with imaginative well prepared dishes and attentive staff. The goat dish is one of the best I have tasted for some time and everything was perfect. Ten out of ten!

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,...
