We chanced on the Mumbaiwala while just walking around looking for a place to eat. Glad we did. This is a fun, informal restaurant. Eclectic decor. Friendly, informative staff. The food is very good. We stuck to the From The Streets and From The Tandoor Grill sections of the menu. Sev Puri, Mumbai Chicken and Lamb Chops. All were good.... More

Awesome Indian food that you can't fault. Great service and atmosphere. We have been to loads of Indian restaurants in Christchurch but this would be my favourite. A must visit.

Cool restaurant right across from the hotel. Menu selections a little smaller than what I had hoped. Asked the waiter for his recommendation between the Chicken Biryani and Murgh Makhani and he suggested the Biryani. Also ordered the garlic naan and masala chai. The chai was a little on the small side, but it was good on a cool night.... More

Came across Mumbaiwala by accident while in Christchurch quite late looking for a restaurant. The restaurant is styled in the Mumbai street/railway theme which adds to the atmosphere. It was pretty busy when we visited but we still got quick service. We are vegetarian and Indian so chose the vegetarian options. Very good food with some nice touches. Very friendly... More

The most authentic Indian food in Christchurch. None of the usual creamy over sweetened flavours. Tasty spicy dishes. Thoroughly recommend dining here

We get to mumbaiwala for dinner every few weeks. I have found it to be the most authentic curry house in Christchurch. Real flavour and some unusual ( for NZ) dishes.

Ate here tonight and no complaints. Lovely welcome, interesting decor and tasty menu at reasonable price. Food was delicious and service friendly and attentive. Handy for where we are staying and already contemplating a second visit before leaving Christchurch which is high praise from us.

What a menu! It took a good 15 min to negotiate with one another one which starter, two main dishes and naans we were going to order because the menu was just so darn goood! The real thing didn't disappoint - authentic flavours and modern presentation. The atmosphere is spot on, making you feel as if you've stepped in off... More
