The food was absolutely delicious, the service was excellent and We love the all the decor and atmosphere. Those fake train noises were just “fantastic” I could picture myself in Mumbai.

Mumbaiwala was great!! The service was excellent, attentive but not over the top and professional. The food options were so exciting and we loved the corn and broccoli to start followed by a curry and a naan with onion and coriander. Such great flavour combinations. Yummy cocktails too! Thanks guys - a unique taste experience.

Definitely unique indian food but pleasently surprised! We had Cauliflower Manchurian (soy cauliflower) which was a highlight! Also paneek tikka chicken was our favourite!! From the pot we got the Lamb dish which was nice but tasted like a casserole for us. We still ate it all! Nice, would come again to try different dishes!

A wonderful evening with very attentive, yet not intrusive, staff and a relaxing atmosphere filled with music of just the right volume, so as to be able to talk with my company without having to raise our voices. The meals (I would recommend the Sali Boti for those who enjoy lamb) were full with flavour and large in portion. My partner particularly enjoyed the Makhani Broccoli entrée. Thanks to the staff for the fantastic meals and service. We will definitely be returning soon

We enjoyed the food. Great flavor. The coconut prawn is very nice. We also ordered MURGH MAKHANI, Goan fish and prawn, Briyani. Love them. The naan bread and naan garlic are soft and has a nice chewy texture . We will dine there soon. This time we will like to try the other dishes. But coconut prawn is definitely on the list.

Our first time here at Mumbaiwala and we will definitely be back. We decided to try lots of the smaller dishes to make the most of such a varied menu. All the dishes were amazingly flavoursome; some standouts were the cauliflower Manchurian, the Mumbai chicken, the lamb chops. We also got a curry - Murgh Makhani (butter chicken) - with some garlic naan. This was beautifully rich and aromatic and was a hit with the whole family. The staff were very friendly and attentive. We'll definitely be back to try out some new dishes and to revisit some of those favorites.

Service was great, food was absolutely delicious! The curries were very flavoursome and came in generous portion sizes. Our only complaint was that the street food side of the menu was quite expensive for the amount you get, and it would be more helpful if you were told how many servings each item comes with, for the sake of sharing (eg. the Dahi Puri was five little puffs that we had to split between four).

What an awesome evening. The restaurant had a great vibe and the meal was so delicious. Everything was light and packed with flavour, we couldn’t decide what our favourite dish was - the paneer skewer from the tandoor, the puri puffs, the butter chicken (of which we could have drunk the sauce as a smoothie it was so good). Till next time Mumbaiwala... save us a seat!

Nice food. Lively atmosphere. We took young kids there and even the mildest was a little too spicy for them. But we enjoyed it. A little pricier than other Indian dining experiences.

Absolutely delicious. The spices are such a compliment to every dish, even when you walk in the smell is unique. The Indian drinks such as the falooda was like having dessert as an entree. Can’t wait to go back and try more.

We really enjoyed our dinner, all the food that we ordered impressed us with its taste, texture and presentation. Mumbaiwala offers refreshingly different dishes to most Indian restaurants in Christchurch and the serving size is generous. We had 2 starters ( sev puri and lamb kofta) 2 mains (sali boti which is a lamb curry and chicken biryani) with some naans. The service was fast, efficient and friendly. Look forward to returning and trying out other interesting dishes.
