“Brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

We visited here in March and were not disappointed. The service was exceptional, very diligent and friendly, even enquired to what we were celebrated and congratualted me on finishing my degree. We were served complimentary popadoms, and dinner was delicious. Highly recommend the Lamb rogan josh, and butter chicken.

The restaurant is situated in a converted house and has been well renovated. Fixtures and fittings modern and chic.

“Excellent Quality and Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

Ate here twice on our 2 stays in Christchurch. The place has a nice relaxed ambience and can get pretty busy - we ate on an outside table the 2nd time as inside was full.
The food is excellent quality and cooked to your preferred heat. When I asked for mine hot I was given the choice of 'Kiwi hot' or 'Indian hot'. I chose the latter on both occasions - despite some trepidation on the waiter's part the 2nd time and it was about right for me - about the same as 'Leicester hot' that is!
The beer range was also very interesting and pretty good value by NZ standards. We were told by one of the other patrons that tjis was 'the best Indian in Christchurch' and I can well believe it.

“The best.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

Indian Curry is my favourite food and this is my favourite Indian restaurant. Great decor, great food and great value. I am so glad they are back from their earthquake nightmare. But back, better than ever.
