I've been coming here for over 12yrs. Never again! Standing in line & I get pushed aside by a very rude customer. When I voiced my complaint the woman serving 'us' said he had placed an order over the phone. So what!!!!! I was there first, he can wait his turn. Not only that the woman was rude & belligerent....

We love coming here for our monthly chicken fix and as other reviews stated service can be unfriendly but we don't care because the chicken and chili sauce is divine and being abused dose not bother me as I am married and are very used to it.:-)

I used to come to this place many years ago for about 10 years. The chicken (when hot) is lovely with unique flavours from Angola (despite the name, this type of charcoal chicken is not from Portugal, rather Angola), the famous peri-peri sauce is hot, hot, hot. Now the service. As I said previously, I've frequented this place a lot... More

Great BBQ'd chicken i have had in ages. The meat skewer was also fabulous. Make sure you also go for the flat potatoes and not the chips (which also looked great). Still dreaming about it today:) You can also BYO which i do not think they charged us for, even though there was a corkage charge on the menu.

A regular favourite the chicken is a amazing, simple but very tasty you can't go wrong when you add the chill is sauce. You should book but we have turned up early on a number of occasions. Only very slight neg - cash only
