when i read the position of this place as a top pick in chch i thought "realy?' a fast food takeout joint? BUT if you accept it for what it is, a fast food outlet, cheap prices and quick service, the food is as good as i have had from such a place, the lamb is tender, chicken crispy and... More

Best souvlaki in town by a long way. Do yourself a favour and join the queue. Being vegetarian I always go for the falafel. It's always a bit crunchy, the pita is large and soft. They are served with a huge mound of salad and chili sauce. Enjoy.

We tried the souvlaki and the salad and both are good sized portions. If you don't mind the taste of garlic and onion, which if you're eating Greek, what else do you expect? Is amazingly delicious. We passed by the one in Christchurch mall. We had to wait a good 20 mins for our order but it was well worth... More

We just passed by. But the smell of Dimitris Greek Food was so amazing. So we had to stop for a lunch break. Souvlaki was so good. My family and I really recommend this place.

Had a friend put me onto Dimitis souvlakis many years ago. After a bit of a break (us, not them) we have been going back solidly for the past 9 months. We reckon their souvlakis are the best in town. Highly recommend if you are in the area and want a good feed - try this!! Can't rate highly enough.... More

I have been visiting Dimitris since before the earthquakes when they were located by the Arts Centre. Always great food and very busy - which is a sign of good food anywhere? Always ask for extra chilly sauce and wash it down with a cold can of L&P - you will not be disappointed!

Quick, fresh, delicious. My son and I visit every week and are never disappointed. This is fast food at its best, run by a very well organised family who are always friendly and welcoming. Can't understand how this establishment hasn't been franchised around the country, more people deserve to enjoy this Christchurch institution.

Thank Martin C
