This place is small but if you're looking for really well cooked lamb this is your spot! Tender and delicious and a lot of it.

Pedro’s Christchurch is small, operating out of a van but is big on taste. We had lamb shoulder, potato and coleslaw which was enough to feed 3 adults. Would happily buy again if in town.

Have been a few times. The lamb and potatoes are delicious. There are only 2 of us but we get 2 meals.

Best lamb shank ever! Meat just fell off the bone, moist and delicious. It was beautifully cooked with a hint of spice. Highly recommended for anyone who loves lamb.

Got the lamb shoulder takeaway for a few mates and I. Had a 15 minute drive home and still was nice and hot when I got there. Meat was so tender it fell off the bone and the potatoes were also very nice.

I think so. I only go to the one in Sydenham and they seem to have a few seats. Mainly takeaways though.
