“Lives up to its name!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

We were lazy to go out for dinner on our last day of stay in New Zealand and decided to go for Pedro's Lamb after seeing it on a newspaper feature. With high expectations, we ordered the lamb shoulder to share for 2 - the only option to order in the menu! And yes, the meat is just so succulent and soft, the smell so addictively appetizing. Highly recommended

“lamb of my dreams”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

Pedro's house of lamb is not a fancy restaurant but a humble takeaway truck.
$35 for a lamb shoulder with potatoes gratin (serves 2), or $50 for a whole leg (serves 4).
But what lamb! What potatoes! A meal that will be remembered for years!
My father in law used to cook such lamb, and the whole family eagerly gathered to savour it. Pedro's lamb is succulent, savoury, comforting, and memorable. And Pedro's, even in this little truck, deservedly ranks No1 on Trip Advisor!

“MUY BUENO, hombre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Pedro is one of those wonderful Christchurch Spaniards (Madrilleno) who never fails to please. I loved it when he decided to open his HOUSE of LAMB in a Caravan off Papanui Road. We have eaten his lamb dishes on several occasions and it is a meal for 4 at least. What about Roast Sucking P{ig, Senor Pedro, Muchas Gracias, Pedro T

“Great take away "fast food"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

Four and a half star. Worth the try and deserve its top ranking. Tried the lamb shoulder for the first time, $35 and good for two. Would love to try the 1.8kg lamb leg with a price tag of $50 if we have bigger group next time!

Have had takeaways from Pedro's several times and they never disappoint. Lamb is always cooked beautifully and the creamy potatoes are great
