I’ve been in search for the perfect souvlaki for a while now and nothing has quite tickled my fancy like Dimitris, and who knew it would be right down the road! Good price, good flavour and a nice healthy option! Good and friendly service! 10/10...More

One of the highest quality most authentic greek stands I've eaten at. One of my favorite foods. It is a bit difficult to eat without making a mess. There are some benches you can sit near the food trucks. Highly recommended.

I had my first Dimitris Souvlaki 36 years ago. Back then I thought they were the best in the world. Of course I hadn't travelled then I had absolutely no idea whether they were or not. Now, I'm happy to say, I have travelled the...More

The stall was busy but the staff were friendly and efficient. We each had a single portion of lamb souvlaki. There was Plenty of lean well cooked lamb to accompany the salad in the wrap. Delicious and good value for money.

Amazing food and a nice clean restaurant. Staff super friendly and helpful. Use to support these guys when they had the corner shop on Hereford street and the quality of the meals are still top rate

Dimitris has to be the best street food in the city. It is busy and popular but that's because of the care and quality of the well priced lamb and chicken dishes. A simple menu of honest food and certainly will fill you up for...More

Dear customers, Due to the closure of Re:Start Container Mall our caravan is no longer operating. Dimitris has a store in the Riccarton area which is still operating. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused, Dimitris will be back in the Central City at the end of the year when the new Riverside Farmers Market opens. Thank you for your patience and continued support especially since the Earthquakes, we really appreciate it.
