Reviewed 19 August 2014

Have passed by Pedros on a number of occasions but never have tried the lamb. Decided to on my birthday and was certainly not disappointed! We ordered the $35 lamb shoulder. It comes in a aluminium tray together with scolloped potatoes and it was devine. You don't need a knife to cut it - with 2 forks you just simply pull it off the bone. Juicy and succulent! The shoulder would feed 2-3 people and we did some veges to add to the meal. They also have a lamb leg which apparently will feed 4 - can't wait to try that either! The lamb shoulder is a great way to get a great meal without having to spend time preparing etc. Suggest that you phone ahead early to order on the busy days - near the end of the week.

We were lazy to go out for dinner on our last day of stay in New Zealand and decided to go for Pedro's Lamb after seeing it on a newspaper feature. With high expectations, we ordered the lamb shoulder to share for 2 - the only option to order in the menu! And yes, the meat is just so succulent and soft, the smell so addictively appetizing. Highly recommended

Pedro's house of lamb is not a fancy restaurant but a humble takeaway truck.
$35 for a lamb shoulder with potatoes gratin (serves 2), or $50 for a whole leg (serves 4).
But what lamb! What potatoes! A meal that will be remembered for years!
My father in law used to cook such lamb, and the whole family eagerly gathered to savour it. Pedro's lamb is succulent, savoury, comforting, and memorable. And Pedro's, even in this little truck, deservedly ranks No1 on Trip Advisor!

Pedro is one of those wonderful Christchurch Spaniards (Madrilleno) who never fails to please. I loved it when he decided to open his HOUSE of LAMB in a Caravan off Papanui Road. We have eaten his lamb dishes on several occasions and it is a meal for 4 at least. What about Roast Sucking P{ig, Senor Pedro, Muchas Gracias, Pedro T

Four and a half star. Worth the try and deserve its top ranking. Tried the lamb shoulder for the first time, $35 and good for two. Would love to try the 1.8kg lamb leg with a price tag of $50 if we have bigger group next time!
