Big chunk of delicious, flavorful meat, with potatoes on the side. Basic but delicious! We were so full (my partner and I) and still have leftovers for lunch the following day! Great value and yummy!

YOU MUST EAT THIS! House of lamb is take away only but it is definitely worth checking out. They said one serves 2-3 people but my brother and I demolished one each =] Best lamb I've had

We quite enjoyed this takeaway lamb dish. Our family of 4 barely managed to finish it such was the portion. The lamb shoulder was cooked to perfection. Tender and tasty. Together with the scallop potatoes it was a brilliant meal.

Our family purchased two trays of lamb and potatoes. Some greens and a salad at home made this a delicious dinner. The meat was tender and fell off the bone. The potatoes full of flavour and scrumptious

Our overseas visitors agree their lamb is the best. In fact one always insists on Pedro's when he visits.

If you are looking for a quick dinner, but don't want fast food this is the place to go. Take-away only, easy to order online or call in. Only one meal choice but the lamb is excellent and the potatoes are a very nice side....More

Heaps of food! And delicious too. The guy even stayed open a bit late so we could pick up after our social sports teams game on Tuesday night. Would recommend adding your own greens to the plate though!

This is an amazing takeaway, a little more expensive than some options but extremely yummy and we usually get 2 meals from it for 3 of us, especially if someone is at home cooking some vegetables to go with it. It is so delicious, the...More

Very tasty, succulent, well cooked lamb shoulder. The potatoes were a bit fatty as they are cooked in the same tray, although that does make them extra delicious not just that healthy!

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
