This is the best takeaway food there is! Consistently delicious, just add a salad of some greens for a great easy dinner.

Pedro has been a name in Christchurch for many a year and his reputation is of the highest order. You can be sure that Pedro's food will be much better that average, well presented and very tasty. Highly recommended!

Brilliant idea and excellent for days when you cant be bothered cooking. We had a meal for 2 and there was enough lamb left over to make a ragu... all for NZ$40. Three visits in 3 mths!

Used to go the restaurant many years ago but now we still get to enjoy it but just at home. Sydenham branch is a good location & we've had the lamb many times as its so consistent. Well priced and makes a heathly take away.

A tender whole lamb shoulder cooked slowly over 4-5 hours, with garlic and rosemary to bring out the delicious flavour. Served with scalloped potatoes.
