Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a well organized storefront restaurant that is part of the Riverside Market. There are lots of covered picnic tables adjacent. The menu is simple with several choices of proteins. Portions are very generous and prices are very reasonable. The line was long but...it moved quickly. We enjoyed it so much that we almost came back the next day (and we should have).More

Located inside a corner of the Riverside Market. All they sell is souvlaki-- chicken and lamb seem to be the most popular. You can purchase a single, double or triple, each containing more of your chosen meat wrapped in a large pita accompanied by veggies...and Greek sauce. And they do it really well, with a constant lineup of hungry, eager customers. The owner told me "if I am not here working hard, the quality can go down". A double chicken souvlaki was more than enough for me. And the pricing is among the most reasonable in the market. A fantastic lunch.More

I had not had the pleasure of dining at Dimitri's for more than a decade, I had to learn where his new location was as the Quake of 2011 ruined his lovely shop near the corner opposite the Chch. Cathedral. Double Lamb Souvlaki was as...EXCELLENT as when I last had one. I took two friends along, one had never been there at all she LOVED IT.....but foolishly had chosen the Single Lamb Souvlaki....we will ALL be BACK for more of the same. What a shame that the upper North Island is mostly unblessed with Greek Cuisine (El Greco being our only salvation in those parts)More

Had the lamb souvlaki at the Riverside Market. It was simply delicious and very filling, and made very fast during the lunch rush hour. Can totally recommend!

Great food in a great setting in Christchurch’s Riverside area. So much choice here but we revisited this one more than once. It is difficult to eat cleanly and the portion size is fairly big but good, tasty food. Would recommend.

With my husband we have tried several places where they serve falafel, since he is Arab and the ones in this place are the best we have tried. The Souvlakis are huge, fresh and very tasty.

I've heard such good things about the souvlakis here but cant say I though mine was that great. I ordered a double but a single would have been fine. Loved the bread and that I was not asked what chilli I wanted, (It should be...tasty without chilli!). Plenty of lettuce and tomato but it was salty and when I got half way down it was dry, by the bottom I just pulled the meat out to take home to my dogs. First and last time for me.More

Very impressive Excellent value for money -$18 for three meats. Quick service. If anything, maybe too much salad if honest.

We needed to rush to the airport and that was why this one wasn't our first choice. I came across this one without much expectation at all. When I saw the Souvlaki I decided to give it a try. I ordered a combination with beef...and lamb for two of us to share. I thought there should be a real small size of meat, for $16. The portion of meats was really generous, the taste was good and the service was friendly. If I am going to Christchurch again, I will definitely be there againMore
