We ordered two chicken dishes. Butter and Korma. To be honest I'm not sure we got two different meals. The colour and the taste was so close that the difference was barely recognizable. Definitely not food chain material. The server seemed like he did not want to be there at all. If you want a table for two, there are... More

Corianders is actually a small chain so I was surprised at the quality of the food. The menu covered most parts of Indian cuisine. We both had dishes from northern India and both agreed they were amongst the best we had enjoyed outside of India. The cost was reasonable and the service was very good. This is possibly the best...

My husband and I felt like something a bit different from pub food so we tried Corianders and we were not disappointed. My husband doesn't usually like Indian food as he can't take anything that is a bit hot. However we ordered Murg Akbari and Lamb Balti. The waiter asked what level of heat we would like, so this meant... More

We have a tradition when we stay for a weekened in Hanmer and that is Corianders take-away on the Friday night we arrive. It always takes forever to decide on a curry because the menu is huge and it all sounds so yummy. This Friday we chose a lamb tikka masaala and a prawn jalfreezi and shared a garlic naan... More

My husband and I went out to Hanmer Springs for a couple's retreat. It is such a beautiful place to relax in quiet moment as we chose after school holiday has finished. We decided to have Indian food to celebrate the momento; as it's been quite awhile since last time we had it back in Australia. I asked my husband... More

Three adults and a four year old in our group all enjoyed a great meal. We each had a different main dish, and the sides platter of chutneys and raita which we shared. No shortage of rice to soak up what were very tasty, and generous portions. The variety of naan breads was a nice surprise and we got two... More

The heading says it all really. The food (we had Murg Akbari and Goan Fish Malabari) was good and quite different from that in many other Indian restaurants, especially those in the UK where we live. The prices though were a little high for what we got.

I chicken briyani that I ordered is pinkish, and a bit watery. Unlike the briyani that I used to have in Wellington, it lacks of spices. It seemed like it has been westernised to suit kiwis taste buds.

We had dinner there in a Monday evening spending a day trip in Hanmer from Christchurch. First of all, restaurant staff brought the starter and my partner's main at the same time, which was very unprofessional I first thought, then l later learned waiter messed up our order by not taking my order down. While we were having the tandoori... More
