A friend recommended that I try the Goat Curry and he was right! Very very good and very friendly staff! I would definitely go back!

I visit Christchurch often for business and stay two doors down, they make single size curries for $10. Great value, great food, great people. Can have a beer while you wait for your take always. Normally have a couple of meals there every visit to ChCh!

A business colleague and I were looking for dinner in a town neither of us are familiar with when we stumbled across this restaurant. The food was great. Not just your typical Indian fare of butter chicken & samosa. We shared the Pork Kumera & Spinach and the Goat Supreme. Both delicious & full of meat. Servings were very generous... More

My first Indian restaurant experience. I was invited by my officemates over lunch. I have ordered buttered chicken and garlic nan. My meal was ok. But, looking into their menu, they cater a friendly menu for gluten free, vegan meal which is really good as some of my friend have this meal requirements. :-) will be coming back and whenever...

This is a great place to go with friends, work or on your own. It's not your typical Indian in that the bright colours are not there; but that doesn't mean it's lacking in flavour. I've been here a number of times and would recommend it to anyone that enjoys tasty food.

We really enjoyed the food at this restaurant. My husband was recently diagnosed coeliac and so a bit nervous of dining out, but most of the curries were gluten free. Tasty without being too hot.

Went for dinner with my daughter in law and two young granddaughters.. The service was great and the food delicious. The garlic Naans were slightly crispy, not doughy like many I have had. The girls had the Kashmiri chicken, that was mild and very tasty. I had a Goat supreme, the meat was tender and the heat perfect for me.... More

We stayed in a motel two doors down from this restaurant. We decided to take food back to our warm room. The service was prompt. The food very tasty. The regular container came with another full container of rice. We found one regular order feed two of us ( we are not big eaters). Definitely recommend trying this place

This was our 4th visit in the last 18 months to the Riccaton Rd establishment. I am pleased to report not much has changed... still the best food, authentic Indian food at it's best. Very clean dining area. Top notch service by friendly and accommodating staff. Great to see top Trip Advisor awards proudly on display. Pricing remains very reasonable... More
