Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Delicious kai, good vibe and lots of options. The cues for several stalls were a bit out of control but overall thoroughly enjoyed and would visit again

It wasn’t there, which is such a shame - we planned our evening around having dinner at the Friday night market

We went at 5pm

Went there around late noon, and food stalls take up most of the market. Wouldn't make my way down especially but would drop by if in the area for a snack. It is locared right infront of the Cathedral.

We had just landed in Christchurch at 2.30pm and checked into a nearby hotel. We wandered down to the night market, a family group of 9, aged 9 to 68.
We weren't looking for action (this is not the place) but rather somewhere to chill after our travel and grab something to eat. There was a great variety of street food on offer and the whole place had a great friendly ambiance. At some point a big band set up and played some great music for about 2 hours, so a really enjoyable and very affordable evening.

Load of unique little vans which were interesting but it lacked a little atmosphere the day I was there. I understand events at that time may have distracted a large number of visitors. Hopefully things will be better on the next visit.

Went there on our Lime scooters a week after they hit the streets, good place to park up grab a quick bite and carry on. There was a good variety of food, similar to many like food truck stops which suits us, prices were reasonable and no great queues.

Would recommend if visiting Christchurch.

Excellent food options from different countries reflective of the culture of the people who have helped with the rebuild of the city. I was on a day's business trip from Auckland and was recommended to try the food stalls. Lots of flavours and colours of the food. I tried the vegetarian empanada from the little Mexican truck... Quantity,quality and price were perfect. This market is just in front of the ruins of the Cathedral and the rebuilt tramway- another sign of the resilience of the people of mighty Christchurch. If you are there on a Friday, I highly recommend this market as a Must-visit.

OK...I'm a sucker for a good Night Market...and even though this is open on Friday's from 11 a,m, to 9 p.m. - I visited at night..so that makes it a Night Market.

Honestly, though...this great event is meant to bring folks together in the ruins of downtown Christchurch - food trucks and folks who either want a great lunch, or those who seek an interesting place to eat (because frankly, so many places close after working hours in downtown Christchurch).

This a a fun gathering of a very diverse group of food trucks, Halal Mexican, Malaysian, Eastern European, African...something literally for everyone. And the prices are great, and the food...well, yum!

If you are in Cathedral Square on a Friday...GO! We heard by word of mouth, and we shared the news with fellow travelers (from England) who we saw there too...

This is a great place to visit, with good food to be had. Help revitalize downtown Christchurch and have a great time!
