This was, I imagine, a busy little precinct. However, now that stores have their own premises back and usable, it is very quiet. Some of the container shops were empty. Quite sad really as I'm sure it could have remained as a great tourist attraction

Cashel Street has nothing much to offer visitors, a few shops, Container Mall is nearly empty of shops. Just before you get to Bridge of Remembrance you have SPARK BIKE were you can hire bikes.

Most of the shops (containers) are gone now as the ANZ and BNZ centre have opened with a variety of shops. There are still a few food places such as Dimitris. But asides from that, not many shops as you'd be better off going down...More

Beautiful area, even with the obvious devastation that occurred in 2011. The shops were cute, friendly staff and a good array of items. Was so lovely and colourful, which really brought a lot of life to the area. We spent hours just walking around the...More

This street has an abundance of places to visit, not least of which is the Bridge of Remembrance, Container Mall and City Mall. There are still empty lots from the earthquake, which decimated the city.

We were impressed by the cafe in the mall. Service was prompt and friendly and tables cleaned quickly. Range of shops was interesting, not as many as we thought. Still worth a look and interesting to see how they can be set up.

I really enjoyed visiting the Restart Mall on Cashel Street. It is quirky and interesting and a visual treat. Well worth a visit.

The restart mall that popped up in shipping containers is mostly gone by now. There are a few shops left but not great variety. A pro for the are however is that food trucks seem to gather here.

Cashel Street is well worth a visit. It is a quirky mix of traditional shops alongside a labyrinth of shipping containers converted into retail outlets and coffee shops/cafes. For me it summed up the energy and positive 'can do' attitudes of the Christchurch people following...More
