Just the usual nothing bad and nothing outstanding, bread with salad sauce and meat, what more do you want?

Absolutely love Dimitris, hands down my best takeaway greek food in Chch. Have been using them for years since living in the city and would highly recommend a lamb souvalaki. Their meats is actually chunks of meat not shavings of rolled unknown meat like what you get at kebab shops and cooked perfect every time.

This is a local must do, the food is made from really fresh ingredients and tasty. In my opinion easily the best Souvlaki in Christchurch. The caravan is always super busy(the sign of a popular venue) and the Riccarton shop is also great and would recommend this place with same high quality service and food.Try the meat/salad box and bread,...

For large and very tasty Greek souvlaki, Demitris is the place to get it. Difficult to eat, but so worth it. A couple of warnings though, if you add olives they will still have their pits in them, and they're so good you'll probably have to wait in line.

Excellent souvlaki! Don't really need to say much more. My personal favourite is the lamb, but they are all good. Generous portions served with fresh pita, copious salad and excellent garlic and chilli sauces. Both the Riccarton and ReStart locations have delightful, friendly staff. The best fast food in Christchurch!

We live here so have known this place in its various forms pre and post earthquakes. It's always been dependable for an affordable bite to eat especially if you love Greek food!

Don't bother going to other stores - Dimitris is fantastic and has been for many years. This is one of my favourite places to visit for good food.
