Good Indian food. Liked the tandoori chicken. It was great. They brought out the dishes pretty fast. Would recommend this place to others.

Christchurch is our favorite city to visit because of our wonderful friends. As well as that the city is doing amazingly well in rebuilding the earthquake devastation. Still a worthwhile city to visit to see first hand the rebuild and progress and gateway to South Island.

This is for Blenheim road Christchurch restaurant, same people run woolston and Auckland ones. Went with Indian colleague who was very pleased and felt it was very good. Not usual simple few sauces made with paste! Both our curries were great, rice was lovely, breads superb. They made a special naan bread he asked for which was not on menu... More

Very poor in every way. Meal started with stale poppadums which should have been a warning. The curry was ordered hot, but clearly that was chilli powder added and not cooked in. Serving sizes were small and very expensive for the quality of the food. Sad because I wanted to support a local business. I advise anyone to not waste... More

Had a worst experience here. Both the food and service were really bad. Very expensive for the little quantity of soup/staters.

This little Indian restaurant is tucked away off the main road. The food and service were both excellent. Each course we had was delicious and so was the Nann bread. I would definitely return here again.

This Punjabi Dhaba is one of five branches of a small chain. It is located in an off-road cluster of shops in an area that suffered quite a bit of earthquake damage. We ate with vegetarian Indian friends who made several requests for modifications of the food, and the restaurant satisifed our friends in every way.

Thank Bill S
