The $10 lunch special is amazing. Often Indian dining at lunch have smaller portions but arjee bhajee is an exception. Huge portions and fantastically fast service. The curry was amazing and very hot. Garlic naan at this restaurant is the best I've ever had in Christchurch. Would highly recommend this place at both lunch and dinner as it does not... More

We came here just for a light snack, but found ourselves pretty full. The portions are large and very good.

Enjoyed our meal which included bhajees, and the Kashmiri chicken and venison mushroom curries. We ordered medium heat which was not as spicy as expected however they were both very flavoursome and the venison in particular quite complex. Service was efficient and friendly.

Discovering this restaurant dethroned my long term Indian restaurant to become my most frequented eatery. All the dishes are amazing, prices are extremely reasonable (even more so when ordering take away). The Chicken Makhani, Chicken Tikka (starter) and Bahjees (starter)are strongly recommended.

Have lived 3 years in chch this is the best Indian restaurant for my taste. Rice is fantastic. Garlic Naan very fresh and tasty! Is adapted to kiwi taste, so it might not be very spicy if you are used to indian food. If you like spicy advise the friendly staff. Definitely worth a visit!

We came across the restaurant by chance and we're lucky. Had the lamb vindaloo which was excellent with just the right amount of spice and my wife had goat curry,a first for her and very good. We ate around 8 pm in an empty restaurant so the atmosphere was lacking but service was excellent. Good value for money too.

February 17, it is enclosed by road works so we just parked in the nogo area. hah to ChCh traffic. Perfect fluffy rice, melting on mouth lamb and chicken that was just gone to rooster heaven.....appropriate for the Chinese New Year. We were very impressed with the decor, the service and the meal. 'Nuff said

Decided to go to Arjee Bhajee for a takeaway dinner; I'm afraid there wasn't much to it. As a huge fan of Indian food I was left underwhelmed. My lamb saag was good but my partner's kashmiri chicken was very bland. It is described as "subtle yet sophisticated" but is not sophisticated at all, where is the flavour?

This was our second visit to this restaurant and our first for dinner. It was good choice. Menu is limited but that is not a bad thing as dishes were a mixture of traditional and innovative. Food was well cooked and very well presented. We had asked for somewhere between medium and hot but ended up with what we regard... More
