We had a busy day and wanted to get take-out to eat in our rental house. I found Pedro's on TA and it didn't disappoint. If you go to Pedro's site online you can order the food and just show up at the appointed time...More

Fresh bread, a fine red, and a massive helping of Pedro's delectable roast lamb and potatoes. This is so much more than comfort food. If that's what you want it's up there. If you want top shelf roast. It's covered. Add your favourite roast veges...More

A great find. Delicious lamb, very tender and juicy, with a very generous portion. We ordered 2 for our family of 5 and it was perfect. Not cheap, 45 per order, but definitely worth it for a one time treat.

Wow, fantastic lamb from Pedro’s last night. Excellent quality shoulder of lamb, meat just fell off the bones with finger and thumb. Soft and juicy, very tasty! Scalloped potatoes the perfect accompaniment, as were the bread rolls. Will definitely be back again soon !!

Ordered 2 shoulders for 5 adults. I nearly asked for a third one when I went to collect! My friend said 2 would be plenty and he was right. Lamb just breaks away from the bone - no carving, just pull away with a fork!...More

$45 for a lamb shoulder is a bit expensive, it was not long ago it was $35 for exactly the same thing. Tastes great but not worth the $

The lamb was one of the best we've ever eaten. Cooked to perfection. The package that was intended to be for 2-3 was enough for 4 of us with the rolls and salad on the side.

Hi Jason, Our lamb it's dairy free. We do cook the potatoes with a little bit of butter, those can be served separate from the lamb if needed. Also we can arrange to cook the potatoes without any butter (we will use extra... More

A tender whole lamb shoulder cooked slowly over 4-5 hours, with garlic and rosemary to bring out the delicious flavour. Served with scalloped potatoes. TAKEAWAY
