Decided to go to Arjee Bhajee for a takeaway dinner; I'm afraid there wasn't much to it. As a huge fan of Indian food I was left underwhelmed. My lamb saag was good but my partner's kashmiri chicken was very bland. It is described as "subtle yet sophisticated" but is not sophisticated at all, where is the flavour?

This was our second visit to this restaurant and our first for dinner. It was good choice. Menu is limited but that is not a bad thing as dishes were a mixture of traditional and innovative. Food was well cooked and very well presented. We had asked for somewhere between medium and hot but ended up with what we regard... More

Delicious food, with a great selection. Not usually too busy. I wouldn't bring kids here though. Lots of parking.

This is a really good Indian restaurant. The decor is a bit stark but don't let that put you off. The food is simple but excellent - and caters quite happily for those who want different heat levels in their curries, and for vegetarians. They don't have a big wine list but there's wines that go well with hot food,... More

We were looking for good indian food after 2 weeks of travel all across new zealand. The name of the eatery was very catchy and therefore our decision to try our luck. The food was very average and we ended up just filling our stomach. This was our last dinner in New zealand and as against our experience of excellent... More

Hi Anshumana I apologise for your experience at Arjee Bhajee. The food style is not of your usual Indian restaurant with food colours or preservatives. We prepare meals in there most basic form, without any sugar or any food colours so they don't look bright red or green or yellow. At Arjee Bhajee we give customers options for DAIRY FREE... More

Will never visit again. We were a group of 8 Indians and we came here one rainy night guided by TripAdvisor reviews. We had not eaten Indian for a while and were craving for some. The food was quite disappointing and tasteless. Even the breads were quite dry and the starter crisps were quite bland. Overall very disappointing experience. Not... More

My wife and I stayed practically next door at the Parkview on Hagley and walked to this little place which had been recommended by our taxi driver. We had the Chicken Tika and the vegetarian Paneer Makhani. Both great. Place was a bit noisy, but there was a very large group of college kids next to us. Their menu is... More
