This is the second NZ Indian restaurant we have visited on our three week tour of New Zealand. Very impressed. The service was fast. The place was spotless. The staff were super-courteous. Most important the food was excellent. The lamb dishes we tried were fabulous. The only this I did not love was the Naan. Too chewy and too thick.... More

My family and I had dinner there and I have to say that it was one of the most delicious Indian meals that I' ve had in Christchurch. In my opinion the food tasted like a lot of care went into the preparation. I had the lamb madras and it was savory, creamy and yummy. The service was also good... More

We've never been disappointed at Curry Time. The staff are knowledgeable. The young waitress is delightful! The food is very tasty and affordable. As usual, like with many Indian restaurants, the helpings are huge. Try the Chole Bhatura (Google it). It's so authentic (comparing it to having it in India many times). Thanks Guys!!

Had lunch today at this resturant. Have been touring around south island for last 10 days and have visited lots of resturants, found this to be true value for money and real good food. It is a family enterprise run by Joshis from Uttarakhand, India. For $7.50 they offer a vegetarian dish and $9.50 for a non veg dish accompanied... More

I've never complained at a restaurant before but I just had to. Starters were great but that's where it ended. Naan bread was so bad it was sent back instantly (tasted like dough) but the second time was no better. It wasn't naan. It was undercooked bread with no taste. The meals? Worst meal I've ever had. No taste whatsoever... More

I have passed this restaurant for many years but never gone in until we bought a Grab one voucher. We dined early as we had somewhere to go so we were the only customers there at the time. Service was friendly and efficient and it seemed only 10 minutes between ordering and our food arriving. Hubby ordered the Vegetable Jalfrezi... More

The staff were very welcoming and were quick to bring water and papadoms while we looked at the menu. We ordered samosas, achicken dish and tandoori prawns for entrees and ordered butter chicken vindaloo and fish for mains. All the food was as spicy as ordered and very tasty. Well worth a visit.
