“Have to go!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

This is great! Little quirky reflection of CHCH's culture and dynamics coming through as the city is rebuilt. The little shopping area is a great time filler if you're visiting... It's also a great opportunity to check out the 'how the city is being reconstructed" through the pop up community info containers..... Shopping, food, art.... Education - great stuff!!

“Interesting Mall, great coffee shops & boutique shopping”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2014

We wandered down to check out the re-start mall as we had heard so much about it. Its worth a look and we enjoyed a nice breakfast there. There were street markets set up on the Saturday with some nice souvenirs, the shops were boutique style & quite expensive.

“A very nice mall indeed...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

I managed to go for a quick stop at Restart Mall. Figured it's a must stop to see how Christchurch is rebuilding their life after the earthquake. It's a very nice mall...I really enjoyed it. Atmosphere and vibe was really good. There were many good shops around for shopping, dining and entertainment. I stopped to have a coffee at Crafted Coffee Company...very yummy coffee even though service was a bit cold.

There are many construction works going on around so hopefully that would finish soon, but it's very nice to see that Christchurch is getting back on its feet.

I stopped by the Quake City too for stories and displays of the earthquake. Quite an insight.

“A lovely atmosphere , i love it !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014 via mobile

The Re:start mall brings a great atmosphere to Christchurch after the earthquake. There are great shops in colourful containers. There is often music being played there or some other sort of entertainment. It is a great and creative idea.
