Absolutely love this place! Every restaurant they have in Canterbury/Hanmer, I have been to and their standards are high every time. They have a wide selection of curries and starters that are all amazing. Personally love the medium mango chicken and a choice of Naan breads that are delicious. Definitely a longtime customer.

No problems with the restaurant. It was quiet, service was fine but there was nothing to distinguish it from any other Indian restaurant.

I was extremely disappointed in this Indian Restaurant. As I have Celiacs I am always very clear to explain the food I consume must not contain Gluten. After being assured this wouldn't be a problem we ordered a take away chicken and a curry fish dish. I will spare you the details but enough to say I missed my much... More

Read about this Indian restaurant on trip advisor and decided to try it and was not disappointed. Tandoori chicken and lamb was delicious. Service was efficient and all the other diners seemed happy with the food and servic if their smiles when they paid were an indication.

Surprisingly good food for a chain, take away was fast (under 20 minutes), with a discount. Vegetarian/vegan friendly.

Had dinner for my mum's birthday. Hubby was very worried as we had our 3.5 year old with us. Staff were very friendly despite being busy. Especially one whose name started with an A and the other female server.Entertained my little one's curiosity and friendliness without getting distracted with the work. Lots of vegetarian options. Not heaps of vegan options... More

We had a takeaway from Coriander's and we're very disappointed. Working in hospitality, I rarely give a one star review. This is no reflect on staff or ambiance which are both perfectly acceptable. The food however was absolutely atrocious. Looking at other recent reviews I wonder what could possibly have gone so wrong. A new chef perhaps? The lamb madras... More

Busy Indian Restaurant in Hanmer nice dinning area with takeaways at the entrance. Good staff who explained the menu well along with helpful serving staff, took a good 40 mins from ordering to receiving meals slow really for Indian.

A quiet Thursday night meant that we were the only ones in the restaurant. Chosen as it seemed cheaper than the other Indian restaurants in town. Service was great, got free papadums as an entrée.

We ate tandoori prawns, chicken tikka masala and mango chicken. All three dishes were tasty and hit the spot. Service was attentive although the time for the meals to come out was slow given the lack of people in the restaurant at the time. While there are better Coriander restaurants in the franchise, we would definitely return to this one... More
