My family and I arrived in Christchurch late in the evening for a one night stay. Tired from traveling, we spotted Indian Sumner CBD next to our hotel. We decided to try it, and are so happy we did. This restaurant is a must! The food was authentic and extremely flavorful. We each had a different dish, and I am... More

Although not very busy yet this restaurant is a gem. The decor is very cool and the service is friendly and welcoming. It's really good to see such a quality restaurant open up in this developing part of the city.

4 in our party and after the previous night at having to wait for a table down the road we decided to try this place. Very few people were in there but the service and food could not be faulted. I will be back for seconds on my next visit to Christchurch. The hosts were attentive and you know it... More

Wow. Great service, with fresh and tasty food. Best Garlic Naan I have ever tasted! Two company lunches per month in a row, it was such a hit.

Wow what a great little restaurant, the food was interesting and different from the standard choices you usually get at Indian Cafes. The food was fresh and fragrant accompanied by the the wonderful attention from the wait staff made our visit to this venue special and memorable. Totally recommend this place to all visitors to Christchurch.

A lot of choice on the menu... with delightful comments to go with each dish. The curries were great, a lot of meat and not drowning in sauce as we have experienced in other places, a good size serving. We went with a group of friends, my only complaint is there was not enough rice. ~ I didn't finish mine,... More

My dad and I found the CBD outlet through a review from a newspaper on Twitter. The ambience was very pleasant and homely, and the food was very tasty, good quality, and home style Indian food. Unlike some restaurant food which can be greasy and too rich, the Aloo Gobi, Lamb Rogan Josh and Chicken Curry were all very simply... More
