Very good food. We got two regular hot meals and a side of falafel. Was all very tasty but way too much food for two people. Was easy to order takeaway but they had plenty of seating at the restaurant.

Souvlaki seems to be the go to Christchurch takeaway. Delicious, fast and relatively healthy. Beats pizza or fish and chips most times hands down.

This was recommended by our hosts at a nearby B&B. It was so good we went back a second evening; the only restaurant in NZ where we went back (because we had good meals everywhere). It's in a strip shopping center, so the decor is modest, but the food is very flavorful! Oh, and the prices are very reasonable.
