It depends on if you want Palangi food or Ethnic food of some description. Best place for cheap nice Palangi food is Beat Street Cafe or the Astro Lounge. Most other Palangi restaurants are expensive or no good.

For a genuine Afghani experience try the Afghan restaurant. Last time I was there it was a bit spend at $18 but you don't have to order as he will just cook you a nice meal and it is very nice.

Also in Addington Simo's is very good for Moroccan food.
Also my wife reports that Morrell and Co specialise in meatballs and are good and cheap- (another Palangi restaurant).

There is a multitude of good asian resterants of various varietys in Church Corner and the Windmill centre in Riccarton. Korean is always good value with heaps of free side dishes that you get with your main.

So it really depends on what sort of food you feel like. There is a good variety so let me know what sort of food you want.

Buffet restaurants are no good- expensive and poor quality.

Sevantis on Kendal Ave - they quite often have deals on TreatMe or Grabone. Superb food, top notch service, only thing i could fault them on (and its been months since our last visit) wine list was small.

Nobanno in Ferrymead is a Bengali restaurant where the food is fresh and delicious

what area of town

Agree with all those comments. Never had a bad experience there. As for the wine, we don't drink, so that's not an issue for us.

Another place we always find excellent, is iZone out at at Rolleston

I've been meaning to go there some time. I'm only about a 5 minute walk away as well lol.

How is their beer selection?

paxie1, Jul 11, 3:41am
Food is good, but we've always had pretty slow service.
