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.

Was a pleasure to experience the same consistently high level of service again at South of India – there were no curry auctions, just the correct dishes delivered directly to those who ordered them demonstrating that a good memory is still a skill that is...honed and valued by a few top spots. The food was great, in particular the samosa was perfect, it’s not often you get one that’s got just the right amount of moisture as well as great flavour. The masala main was spot on, the only reason for not giving top marks was the Garlic and cheese somehow made 95% of the cheese magically disappear as the cheesy goodness was barely detectable, despite that one blip it was great and spice level was dead right for me as a medium man.More

Have been to this place many times over the last five years and after the last unsatisfactory meal i will not be returning. Its always a hit and miss situation here. Half the time the dishes that i got where only just passable and the...other times they were substandard. Often the place was in need of cleaning as well. There are other Indian outlets that are much better, cleaner and cheaper too. So that's where i go now. I really don't like handing over good money for such a bad return,its like food fraud.More

Have tried food several times from them and I go to pickup uber deliveries almost every day from them. Never had any bad experience and food was awesome. Not too spicey like we get them in india or Sri Lanka but spicey enough.

Rang up for take aways and they were ready when we arrived to pick them up. This restaurant was suggested to me by an Indian friend and he was not wrong. This is the best Indian food I have ever had and will definitely go...here again. Do not pass this by!More

Use to be my local and we visited with friends on a recent holiday down to Christchurch. Menu has got a lot bigger, which is a good thing I suppose. Still all my favourites on there. We had to vege and one meat dish. All...cook really well with tasty flavours. Breads were large and filling. Service was good; friendly as usual but could have done with another person on the floor on occasions as there was a lot of foot traffic through the restaurant due to take away orders. All in all a really nice night. Would not hesitate to go back.More

Had lunch there today. One of the best Indian restaurants we have been to for a long time. Great menu, great service and excellent food. Very clean as well. Looks brand new. While there was only 1 server, he did an excellent job and service...was quick. Congrats to the kitchen staff as well.More

Always a good curry from south of India and the staff are friendly and know what they are doing. They also aren't usually afraid to make a curry spicy if you ask for it.

My partner and I were nearby and decided to eat in new Brighton. We saw this restaurant and as we both like indian cuisine thought we'd try it. My Lamb Rogan Josh and Fiona's Butter Chicken were excellent as were the plain naan bread and...rice. In summary, excellent food and decor, pleasant service, we'll definitely return.More

One of the best 'Banquet Bros' experience. Good service, flexible on the banquet offerings, starters ok, curries fantastic. Lamb Nawabi (particularly!), Lamb Rogan Josh and Beef Madras were very well received. Hard to beat next door Pierside Cafe & Bar happy hour $10 jugs pre-drinks.

We got take away, definitely the best curry we've had in a whlie and great value pricing. Can totally recommend chicken tikka masala (medium), goat madras (hot) and lamb rogan josh (hot). Oh, and the Naan bread are excellent too!

We went here for dinner. We had fantastic food. And spicy as we like it. The interior does not seem fancy. But the food is great. Value for money on a scale from 0 to 10 scale is 9. Go there!

Its a bit of a way out of town but it was great to walk along the beach and grab a pint next door and then have a decent veggie curry. Not a flashy restaurant but good food also does street food during the day...which might be worth a visitMore
