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.

We were on our way to Hanmer Springs and decided to try Kaiapoi for lunch. Didn't really know what we wanted so we're just going to go and get something from the Night and Day store. But just next door was a Morrocan restaurant. We weren't disappointed. I had the chicken tagine with cos cos and roast veg salad . The wife had the grilled fish salad. Both were excellent and very tasty. They had lots on the menu that we would have liked to try also. 2 drinks and two mains with a flat bread to mop up the tagine juices only $47. Well priced for such a great lu.ch out.

Had lunch there today. First noticed how clean and sharp the restaurant appearance was, just magic. The menu offered up two different cuisines. Moroccan and Indian. I took my Aunty as she wanted her favourite Indian, so tick there and for me and the wife to have Moroccan on the menu was perfect. The restaurant was empty, why I don't know. Being a visitor from up north I was certainly surprised by the low patronage given the the appearance and the great attention to good customer service. We will return again food 10 out of 10 service 100%.

It is not often you find a restaurant/takeaway specialising in predominately/specifically "Moroccan" cuisine. This is why we chose to get our takeaway meal here. The flavors and aromas of the targine lamb dish were amazing. Very, very well worth a visit when in Kaiapoi.

Booked same day. Greeting OK , nothing special. Taken to reserved table and service was impeccable. Order taken swiftly and wine delivered immediately. Food arrived promptly and the chicken korma was superb. Best I have had anywhere in the world and I have spent 30 years travelling round the world This is a gem of a restaurant and I will definitely return

We ordered takeaways comprising chicken vindaloo and naan breads. One pair was required to be hot and the other, mild. From the time I walked in where I met the super friendly and helpful staff and observed the lovely ambience, until we sat down later to enjoy our meal, the experience was amazing. Unequivocally a 5 star rating by us. The spices and method of slow cooking to perfection was evident. We travelled from out of town to try this resaurant. Both my wife and I can honestly recommend. We will certainly be back. kind regards and best wishes, Barry and Kristin

We come here so often, they worry about us if we miss a week! Always start with the Bhajis! But totally recommend the chicken and salads, the curries are better then the curry houses and they do little things to make you feel special.. nothing is ever a problem!

The food was excellent, the venue was fresh and modern. The venue is quite small. A great healthy option in Kaiapoi.

I live two minutes away from this establishment (to call it a restaurant would be an over estimation) I ordered a Lamb Souvlaki and when I got home again I would reiterate only two minutes away the meal was cold. I phoned to complain and was told that they would give me a free meal on my next visit, but I would not want to revisit, or have any other food on their menu, definitely not recommended.

It was a pleasure to see how clean and fresh this place looked inside and out. The menu was great and they use a tandoor! Our food was good, fresh salads, sauces and tender meat. Service was speedy and food well presented. We will be back.

Spent 5 weeks in NZ and tried food from all over the country and this place takes the cake. Very clean and bright , comfortable seating, excellent service and the food and flavors was absolutely amazing. The portions were big, and the pricing was cheap considering the flavors, the atmosphere and staff. The food had an authentic homemade taste with flavors in every bite.
