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.

First time dining here and we will definitely be back! We were well looked after the second we walked through the doors. Our waiter was amazing and so attentive - I’m sorry we didn’t get his name. The food was incredible, the best Indian food in Christchurch easily.

One word A-MAZ-ING
The food at this restaurant is spectacular. There was so much to choose from we decided to go for 5 of the smaller dishes. Everyone of them were epic. The surroundings were done to a very high standard which added the the entire experience. From start to finish nothing could be faulted.

It was a very good experience, would like to recommend First table & Mumbaiwala to others.
Only thing can be improved is quantity of the items is very small.

It was quite a unique experience trying Indian street food. We were welcomed from the door and directed to our table. The restaurant had a modern vibe and food was nicely presented. Would recommend it to anyone who is keen to try different taste of Inidia (other than your normal butter chicken :-))

Delicious! I have been to many Indian restaurants over the years, both in NZ and the UK, but have never before seen Squid Bajees or a Lamb shank ‘curry’ on the menu - I tried them both and repeat myself in saying they were delicious! Highly recommended & I will be visiting again

Great food, waiter was excellent. Family with two teenagers one with a milder palate but she was keen on trying everything and enjoyed. No room for dessert but shared a chocolate naan - so good.

Tried a few of the starters namely the Coconut Prawns, Squid Bhajee and Mumbai chicken. These were ok but wouldn't necessarily have again. However the Murgh Makhani was gorgeous. I asked for it medium/hot which was perfect. 10 year old also had this but had it mild - he said it was ok (he's never had curry before). Other son had Kersari Kebab which was very nice. Husband had Lamb Dhansak which he enjoyed. Ordered 2 garlic naans (more like roti's but very nice) and an onion and coriander kulcha between us but ended up asking for another garlic naan. Both of these were very nice - small but nice. As we were on First Table we tried a few things we haven't tried before. We also took the kids (which we won't do again). Recommend it. Portion for adults was just right. Curry came with small bowl of rice.

Couldn’t fault Mumbaiwala, food was divine, quite different from other Indian restaurants. For two people we shared 2 starters, highly recommend the cauliflower, 1 main and naan which was plenty. Service is very friendly, will be going back for sure.

A bit different to the typical Indian food in Christchurch. We tried two dishes from the street menu, the dahi were yum but quite a mouthful to eat and the squid bahji weren't quite what we expected but still enjoyable. Had the lamb curry which was nice but could have had a little more flavour. Wait staff were very friendly and attentive, would return to try some more of the street dishes.

We love Mumbaiwala! What more can I say? The menu is spot on, portion sizes just right and we love ordering a selection to share. Wonderful selection of tastes. The decor and theming is bang on point too which all adds to the experience. And the staff are polite, friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend for any occasion. We mentioned it was my partners birthday and the kitchen sent out a delicious dessert which was totally unexpected and a lovely end to our already fab dinner. Thanks team!

We loved our meals, especially as we had expected "standard" Indian fare, but this was definitely in the more gourmet category. A cauliflower entree was the highlight, absolutely beautiful. Staff were lovely too. Would definitely recommend.
