We really enjoyed our experience at Curry Time. The service was efficient and friendly and the food was delicious. I always ask for extra chillis on the side when I go to an Indian restaurant and often they cant provide any, but not here at Curry Time. I got cooked green chillis and a wonderful little dish of a hot curry sauce. Well done Curry Time - it made my meal

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!

Nice and quiet night out. Plenty of parking at the rear and is byo wine which is good. I recommend the mixed platter for entree and a mango lassi. I would go mild to medium spice for the curries if you are not a fan of hot stuff. Overall a good place to eat.

What a little hidden gem. The food was fantastic and the restaurant was busy too. Even though there was only one server on she did a fantastic job alone. Would love to come back next time I am in Christchurch

Had another great meal at our favourite local restaurant. Recommend the Curry Time platter, which gives you a selection of dishes to sample. Shivarni does a wonderful job of explaining the different flavours and dishes. This restaurant is hard to go past if you are looking for a delicious Indian meal. We will be back.

Each dish different but excellent! Very reasonable prices, great serving size and very friendly service. Madras dish is the best Madras that we have tried. Very nice Mushroom Dopyaza dish. Heat levels of medium and Hot were just right.

Great food and excellent service! Lovely calm atmosphere. Worth the trip out to Redwood. With our voucher, four of us ate four mains and two entrees, left feeling satisfied (with a doggie bag) for $20 each!! You can't beat that. And BYO wine is great.

The whole table enjoyed their food .Bit unsure why three of the mains are not included in First Table as two of our guests wanted those dishes to order

The food was absolute delicious. The onion bhajis were easily the best I've had in Christchurch as was the garlic naan and onion kulcha. The curries were good also. My toddler very much enjoyed the aloo gobi. Will definitely be back. Cannot fault the service either. Very friendly and accommodating.

Delicious food and Fantastic service. A busy little restaurant and we can certainly see why! Both servers were welcoming and attentive. The food was delivered in a timely manner, despite how busy it was getting. Parking was easy, in the rear of the small shopping centre. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

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.
