About JABA

Our focus at Jaba is on fresh New Zealand produce sourcing from local suppliers and farmers as well as serving fine New Zealand wine and beer and superb cocktails. We pride ourselves on sourcing our wine from local wineries.

Our main love however is serving the best Canterbury beef steaks and ribs in town. Cooked in our unique and state of the art Kopa charcoal grill for an authentic charcoal flavour. 

We pride ourselves in producing excellent dishes all prepared by our talented team with care.

Come and try out our exciting menu and experience the authentic flavours of our steaks and ribs with a distinctive charcoal flavour.

We opened the Christchurch Central Lichfield Street restaurant in 2018 and it has successfully risen to become the number one steakhouse in Christchurch on Google and Trip Advisor, rating top 5 overall in Christchurch in less than 2 years.

Check out our reviews for yourself.

Within 2 years we have managed to successfully open a second venue at The Palms Shopping Centre in Shirley, offering a new lunch menu and our hugely popular dinner menu.
