Make up a Greek salad and let Pedro’s do the rest. Great lamb feeds 2 comfortably and the potatoes are great as well.

Read the reviews. Ignore anything not 100% raving about the food. Order half of what you think you need (yes, orders are THAT BIG!). Drive home (or take a taxi back to you hotel). Eat yourself silly. Eat leftovers for two days. Amazing!

Lamb cooked to perfection! Delicious potato too! Handy if you want a delicious home cooked style meal for dinner and don’t have time

Everything you expect from a place called this. Lamb tick, potatoes tick, bread tick, juices tick. Bought the lamb for 2 and comfortably fed us both, probably could have fed 3-4! Very very tasty.

For a quick, easy and tasty evening meal, I would recommend this place. The lamb and potatoes are always cooked perfectly, occasionally a little fatty but nothing too bad. A great alternative when you can't be bothered cooking a roast at home.

In the pre earthquake days Pedro's was a Christchurch institution and his lamb shoulder was his signature dish. Though you no longer get to eat it in the restaurant, now you can take it home with you and it has lost nothing of its value...More

Every family should try this slow cooked succulent lamb. It’s delicious and very flavoursome, In fact I suggest you buy two just in case your family or guests can’t stop eating.

Fresh bread, a fine red, and a massive helping of Pedro's delectable roast lamb and potatoes. This is so much more than comfort food. If that's what you want it's up there. If you want top shelf roast. It's covered. Add your favourite roast veges...More

The lamb is great, well cooked and I thought, well seasoned. I just wish they had plain old really good roast potatoes rather than scalloped. Apart from that, if you get this then add your own vegetables you can easily feed 5 or 6 people.

Hi Jason, Our lamb it's dairy free. We do cook the potatoes with a little bit of butter, those can be served separate from the lamb if needed. Also we can arrange to cook the potatoes without any butter (we will use extra... More

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. TAKEAWAY
