....ravaged inner city. I love the ambience created by the colourful container project, and hope the city planners have the wisdom to build on that innovation

“Small But Unique”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

This was a great place, but there insist really a lot there. I was there about 40 minutes before I ran out of things to look at. But definitely worth a visit.

“Unique Shopping Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

Restart Mall along Cashel Street is definitely a unique shopping experience. Where else can you find a shopping area composed of merely containers- banks, restaurants, cafe's, souvenir shops, apparel stores. And they sell good quality food and clothes, at a clean and wholesome place, with manicured pocket gardens, etc. And the prices are very reasonable.
Make it a part of your walk of the city of Christchurch, from the Botanical Garden, to the Museums, to the damaged Cathedral, Arc of Remembrance (with bridge), etc. Its part of the city experience. We came as tourists and we were glad we shopped and ate here.
Bravo for the Kiwi innovativeness !

“Interesting experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

Been here to restart mall many times just the concept of walking into a shipping container mall is interesting the 2 storey coffee shop's are incredible the clothes and food shops and banks all in containers its incredible. On my first visit there staff in container shops told me they felt safer in container shops than there original shops as containers nothing can full on you if another earthquake. There is also food court with great array of food options. One of those places you should try just once

Brilliant to see the container mall, how business have been resilient and kept the centre of town alive after out shake up. Important that we support their businesses as they have supported Christchurch. Lots of interest
