So glad we stop at Dimitri's for a quick Greek lunch of lamb and chicken souvlaki! Vegetarian falafel is also on offer. Very fast service and cheap eats in the heart of the Christchurch ReStart Market area.

Had read the brilliant reviews and was missing Costas Souvlaki in Armagh St so thought I would give it a go. Souvlaki was tasty enough and service was great.
