“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

Visiting Christchurch I was of course devastated by the condition of the downtown area and I was so happy to find this gem of inspiration. The containers are colorful, the food was good(the fire-roasted pizza place is great!), and the people were cheerful. It was a beautiful day too, which helps of course.

“The new Restart Mall is great - go visit and give them some support”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

We thought this mall was great - it embodied the spirit of regeneration in Christchurch, and there was a great atmosphere on the day we visited.

“Fun Shopping Out of Containers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

Not the most affordable shopping in Christchurch, but a very fun place to spend the day. The containers are used in such a charming and innovative way that that alone is worth going to see. The small dining courtyard has a lot to offer. The ice cream with fresh fruit swirled in is delicious.
There are clean bathrooms, several ATM options, and a plethora of shady spots to rest in. And there is an import food shop (I can't recall it's name) that is fun to go into and see all the super expensive American food that we buy in gas stations:)

Great container into the newly designed colourful shopping street. Many uptown shopping shops and eating options. The cafe is great place to enjoy a real good coffee. It is the new heart of Christchurch city. Must visit!!!

“Very humbling experience, Restart is a great initiative”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

I was humbled and moved by the resilience and and attitude of the people of Christchurch in the face of such devastation. Restart is a wonderful precinct on the edge of what was the CBD. It is a a great shopping precinct anchored by Ballantynes and staffed by the most wonderful people. It has a number of great shops, cafes and restaurants and is a great way to see how Christchurch is beginning its journey back from the quake of 2 years ago.

I implore people who read this, spread the word, get on a plane and visit Christchurch, the city is alive and well, the people are friendly and welcoming and they need your support. People of the world get to it, book your flights and head over. We spent a week on holidays from Melbourne, loved every minute of our time there and we will be back soon.
