Good food if you have the time

Great place for lunch with an interesting menu. In peak times it gets quite busy though and the wait for food from their tiny kitchen is too long. I think some of their food is too sloppy with too many sauces (like the burgers) but the quality is good nevertheless.

Been a few times and every visit has been a pleasure. Friendly service, food brought out promptly and always very tasty. The portions are huge especially the cheesy chips! Price is very reasonable, recommend highly for breakfast and lunch.

We had breakfast at Django's and I was not impressed with the quality. Mostly the amount of fat was daunting. The bacon had a large fat larder and the toast was drenched in melted butter. It could have been better if it was made leaner and with more love of cooking. The price was OK though.

dear rotterdan hans thank you for your review with reference to your breakfast i would like to apologise if you were not 100% happy with your meal but i do have to say that if your butter was melted then this would imply that the toast was hot regards dean butcher More

We regularly visit Djangos because it cannot be beaten! Sometimes there can be a bit of a wait and they only take cash, but that pales into insignificance when the food arrives... Well presented, ample portions and delicious flavour. I recommend the Chilli and garlic bread or the burger with a choice of cheeses. They also always accommodate children's requests

Went for a late lunch on a Monday with my children and friends. As a group of 5 people we were allocated a large table. Thankfully our waitress knew about the large portions they serve!! Our waitress was great from taking our order and checking everything throughout our meal. The food was fantastic from the bean bowl, gammon steak, club... More

Djangos is always a great place to grab lunch, it does get very busy but the wait is never long to get food. There is a lovely atmosphere and the staff are always very friendly. Recommendations would be the Chilli Beef and bean bowl or the garlic mushrooms.

Really like it here. Always come on the weekend and despite it being so busy everyone the girls out front always make you feel welcome and have a smile on their face. The food is amazing and I love their portion sizes, you've got to have an appetite for a place like this

Popped in to. Django's in Folkestone (only because I didn't have the strength to get back up the hill!! ) We were pleasantly surprised by the food we ordered.An Advocado and Brie salad and a Salmon and Prawn salad. Both came in reasonable time and was well presented. The best bit for us was the generous portion size and the... More

Went there for lunch yesterday. It was my first visit. The food was good at a OK price and would go again. The service was mixed that's why not 5 stars. One of the ladies that served us was very good and the other one felt a little rushed but still both very polite and nice.
