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

This is our first visit to Christchurch, and we had not heard of Re-Start initiative. This is a City fighting back after a major earthquake. The "Shipping Container" shops looked a bit temporary and third world till you realised why it was there. The traders...More

Very fond memories of many student haunts along this street, now it is all glass, modern and very chic.

Great food, great shopping. We loved roaming around Cashel Street. Inspired and impressed by how this area was developed and wish it could remain beyond its expiration date - when big buildings go back in. Loved, loved, loved.

Not the best idea for creating a shopping centre but the open air market stalls just next door were excellent
