“Taste Sensation!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

The pizza here is amazing! I would even go to say the best in CHCH. The layout of the container itself really brings back the old Christchurch with the 'red bricks'. I go there weekly the staff are so friendly I would recommend this place to anyone! You haven't lived until you have tried BASE woodfired pizza
BRILLIANT!!!!

“You won't find better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

This IS the best pizza you will eat. I have taken my family here a number of times on a recent trip and these guys are exceptional. Besides the food being out of this world, the staff are friendly and fun and give you a great kiwi conversation.

The RE:Start mall is brilliant these guys are the icing on the cake. If in Christchurch get to the RE:start mall then order a pizza from BASE, I recommend Sir George!!

“The tastiest pizza place, ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

Was visiting Christchurch on a backpacking tour of NZ and stopped by City Mall around 7pm. While other retailers and hospitality outlets were closed, Base remained open and was absolutely pumping with other tourists and locals. We soon discovered why the place was so popular - without a doubt, the best pizza we have eaten in years!! Hilarious staff, too - made the atmosphere really friendly and relaxed. Would recommend Base to others without hesitation.

“Great night out!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2012

This place was funky, friendly and fantastic food. A great atmosphere for the whole family and arcade games and pool table to keep the kids occupied while the drinks kept flowing for the adults. Good music playing too!
