Came here for Mother’s Day, service was fast, food was yummy, can’t really complain. Only minor critique was they needed to bring water once we sat down not after we asked for it

Only Loan Star in Christchurch I go to! I have been here about 10+ times and every time the meals have been consistent and delicious - and I'm a fussy eater. I highly recommend the Running Bear Salmon. The staff are lovely and are always...More

Went there tonight for dinner, ordered nachos and they ended up being stone cold. I already had waited about 25 minutes for them to be cooked and served so was disappointed with the result. Sent them back to be reheated.

Awkward to get to at the moment if you don't know where the enterance is. Nice layout - seems like a lot of smaller spaces rather than one big area. The food was well cooked and presented. Good value for the portion size and quality....More

I had lamb shoulder and hubby had venison, both delicious and reasonably priced. We had a coupon for a free loaf of bread (which they actually put on the bill but we just left the coupon with the bill). Watch out for that bread, it...More

Enjoyed eating in this place after a long day of flying into Christchurch from Sydney and when the food came out the portions were really big and satisfying. Only dropped two stars because although there was staff aplenty when we were there none of them...More
