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).

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.

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)

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!
