“Good shops in very attractive 'containers'!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

Some wonderful small boutique type shops and eaterys, all working out of beautifully decorated containers. Well worth a visit and the wood fired pizzas are just delicious as well as the coffee shop close by. Different for sure but it shows the sprit of the city - well done ChCh.

“Hummingbird Coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

The cafe is in the ReStart mall, part of the regeneration of Christchurch's project. The mall itself is largely built from utilising containers to house business following the earth quakes three years ago. There were many businesses, shops, banks and restaurants all doing their best to keep Christchurch alive. I single out the Hummingbird Cafe since we chose to have a light snack there during our visit, I'm sure the others are great as well, but these people were working so hard in a limited space to produce great food and service.

“A great, positive development”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2014

It is great to see how positive the restoration of the centre of Christchurch is. It is a brilliant idea with lots of designer shops, cafes, souvenir shops. It is great to see all the different companies who are involved. It is really colourful and modern. I can't wait to go back in a few years and see how it will change.
