Hands down - The best Indian in Christchurch! A small quaint Indian Restaurant located in the middle of a small block of shops (conveniently with a carpark). From the moment we walked in until the moment we left, customer service was made a priority. Despite being small the restaurant was fairly full and had constant customers collecting Takeaways. Every person was greeted with a smile. The two staff members were extremely efficient, capable and friendly. Warm plates were presented moments before entrees and meals were delivered. The food - my hubby is from the UK and is usually unimpressed by curries here - not today. All of the meals were beautiful. The homemade spring rolls were amazing! Hot also means Hot (if this is the heat you choose) - which is great as somebody that loves spicy! Prices and quality here are great - I am pleased we stumbled across this find on First Table. It will now be go to venue for Indian.

Party of four dining. Greeted by friendly smiles. Very attentive staff. Food was delivered to the table hot and in a timely manner.
Onion bhajis were crisp and delicious. Nan breads fluffy and tasty. Chicken Korma was creamy but with a good kick. Butter chicken ordered mild and my teenage son enjoyed. The chicken jalfrezi was beautifully spiced with lots of chicken and the lamb Rogan Josh was very tasty.. highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for good food and friendly staff.

Our dinning experience at Curry Time was delightful to say the least! The simple restaurant, while possibly not winning any awards for cutting edge design, was clean, friendly and comfortable. The staff were incredibly professional and the service was fast, efficient, helpful and practiced.

Despite the above positives, they were not the highlight of the evening. That was hands down the delicious food. The menu had a great selection, but was not overwhelming. We ordered the Tandoor Mushrooms to start and while the menu said 8 mushrooms, the waitress must have passed on that we were a group of 3 and they brought 9 mushrooms instead. They have got to be one of the tastiest things I have eaten in my life. Highly recommended! We ordered 2 curries between us. The palak paneer and the anarri. The palak paneer was tasty and fresh but the star of the show was absolutely the anarri! You MUST try it if you go to this restaurant! Our naans were delicious and obviously made freshly in house. We completed the meal with the gulub jamuns which were tasty, novel and decedent.

If you're looking for delicious authentic Indian food at a good price then you will get more than you bargained for at Curry Time. For the extremely reasonable price, fantastic service and incredibly satisfying food, they really can't be beat! I will return!

Enjoyed our meal, thank you. I’ve never seen the two year old eat so much. All the kids declared your naan the best they’ve had.

A lovely meal out. My family thoroughly enjoyed it. It wasn’t too spicy which was their main concern. Very tasty and very clean plates at the end. Pleasant service and pleasant surrounds. Nice to hear Indian music

We found the staff really friendly with a nice manner. We had a two year old with us and they couldn’t have been more helpful. The chicken tikka masala was one of the best I’ve had and would go back anytime!

Between four adults we selected 8 dishes, once being a vegetarian option which our friend thought was average, the rest were delicious. The waiter was very helpful with our selections, normally I wish I had choosen another option almost everytime we go out for a meal but this time thanks to his opinion my chooses were actually the nicest of all the meals. Service was very friendly and efficient. If First Table wasn't an option we would not have looked at Indian as an option and now we will go back to Curry Time, lovely evening out.

If the rating went up to 10, we would give it an 11. The food and service were excellent. The wait staff went above and beyond to make sure our experience was perfect. Plus, the front of house was neat, tidy and felt welcoming.

Would definitely reccomend this restaurant to everyone. Thank you Curry Time for making our night so fantastic.
