Great spot to grab takeaways hailing from the Med. Friendly staff, fresh and tasty food that may be a little adventurous for some...definitely worth it.

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.

Love stopping in for a meal. The meat is really good, as is the salads. Great idea if you want something healthy and filling

Souvlaki seems to be the go to Christchurch takeaway. Delicious, fast and relatively healthy. Beats pizza or fish and chips most times hands down. However casbah I feel are lagging behind some of the competition. Having used to live relatively close by I have had casbah many times before, but it has been over a year since moving to the...
