Awesome value for money meal. Nice and succulent lamb with tender patatoes. We were visiting Christchurch just for the weekend and heard of Pedros. We tried it and we were very pleased. It puts the lamb meal we ordered at another Restaurant to shame! Will be back for sure when next we visit Christchurch.

What can I say. I have been a convert to Pedro's for over 30 years and this lamb dish is simply one of the culinary highlights of NZ and must have if you visit Christchurch or Queenstown. Book it in advance 'cause chances are you will miss out otherwise as they are still regularly selling out before service starts. Devoted... More

So good. Had family down from Wellington and after a busy day none of us wanting to cook Pedro's was the perfect answer. Succulent lamb and layered potatoes. We added salad. Sorted xx

Like all the other reviews....a juicy tasty delight. Great friendly counter service. We got the $40 pack which did Mum Dad and daughter nicely. The lamb is succulent with a nice bark crust and the potatoes are a delight to accompany- nice one Pedro!

Superb ... serve the lamb as a roast dinner and don't worry about the hot oven in summer. My guests were impressed.

We first tried the lamb dish a couple of years ago and it has been a staple every few months when we get tired of cooking. It always melts in the mouth and with a pot of baby peas its the perfect meal.

We order the lamb takeaway regularly. I also send my airbnb guests there as well. They tend to take a wine and eat in the Botanical gardens in Christchurch.

The lamb shoulder from Pedro's is absolutely beautiful! Every one comes with yummy scalloped potatoes that just melts in your mouth. Pair their signature dish with a Greek salad - perfect!

You have to call and order it early usually 6 hours before you pick up. Generous portion and good price. The lamb come with potatoes.
