Please note that, along with The Lotus-Heart restaurant, Gandharva Loka will be closed from 3 pm on Friday August 14. We will reopen and resume normal trading hours (see right) on Friday September 4.
However, as our manager will be around during this time, please feel free to email or call us to make an appointment to come to the store if you wish – he will be happy to accommodate you. The phone and email messages will be cleared daily and we will continue to service our out of town customers during this closure time also. We are sorry if this closure causes any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
Gandharva Loka has its roots in Europe with stores in Austria, Switzerland and Germany since 1989. Gandharva Loka Christchurch opened in 2008 and was the first outside of Europe until 2011 when a Gandharva Loka store opened on Granville Island in Vancouver, Canada.
