Flying Burrito Bros is one of our favourite local restaurants, especially since they relocated to a building just outside of Northlands Mall in Papanui, Christchurch. They have a delicious Mexican-style menu with some classics - try their sizzling fajitas or sweet, sweet chirros. It includes both carnivore, herbivore and gluten-free options. They offer an excellent range of mexican beers, margaritas and other cocktails - they regularly change their daily margarita special. They recently added an outdoor area, which is sheltered and great place to met for drinks. It can be a noisy, busy place to dine on weekend evenings, but its a great option for groups. Note: bookings for weekend nights and/or more than 6 people are essential, otherwise they are happy to take walk-ins for lunch and early evening dining.

Had a great time here...fantastic service, waitress explained the menu in it's entirety and was only too happy to answer questions. It was average cost at $118 for four of us. Kids meals were ok...corn chips to start then nachos, drink and ice cream sundae for dessert. Fajitas were so good and my mojito was huge and possibly the best I've had. But the star of the night was the churros for dessert...omg they are heaven here. Will be back for sure.

A friend had come back from Tauranga and had visited the restaurant up here and raved on about it so over queens birthday weekend we thought we would go and try it. We arrived just before 5PM without a reservation (and luckily we arrived when we did). The restaurant quickly filled up with nearly all the tables full. The staff knew what the specials were without having to look at a menu or board. We started with the nachos and cheese dip for an entree, chicken fajitas for our main which came out pipping hot on a skillet (tasted amazing, would highly recommend) and churros for desert. Between 3 of us who all ordered the same things it worked out around $50 with a pitcher of margarias (much cheaper then buying by the glass) so was a cheap night for a really filling dinner. The only let down would be the walls, there was some decorations but mostly candles which had stained all the walls where you can see it has melted down. Good indoor and outdoor areas, would highly recommend
