After 30+ hours traveling we wanted some hearty, filling, and quintessentially Kiwi. This really hit the spot. Generous portion and we enjoyed every bite!

We only just finished the lamb and spuds. What a delight and I wish I could have eaten it all! Definitely worth the trip. Thank you Pedro!

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

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
