We had an absolutely fabulous night at Clink. The food is amazing, and the staff are just so friendly & attentive. It wasn't my first visit to Clink, and it most definitely won't be my last. One of my favourite restaurants in Chch.

Clink Restaurant and Bar in Sumner was the perfect restaurant for my honey and me to dine with our New Zealand friends. Originally, the building was a prison and the menu carries out the theme. I enjoyed the “convict” pizza with lamb, feta cheese, onions,...More
