If you are staying in a motle on Riccarton raod - especially the City end, try out Trevinos restaurant (its in City Park Motel Complex and fronts onto the main road).
It is very reasonably priced and has a great selection.
It will pay to book if you want to sit in a restaurant surroundings (we did the 2nd time around) however, you can have your meal served in the Bar area too.
Nice friendly staff & very welcoming.
