I took my family here late one evening to celebrate a birhtday. The service was the only thing I can say is worth a positive, as the waiter was polite. As for the food - never again...anything fried seemed like it was refried and nothing special or interesting about the food generally. There are plenty of alternatives within the same... More

We went as a large group. Service was good and we were there for a long time and didn't feel pressured to leave. The food was good with the exception of the fusion menu options. Best to avoid those! The restaurant actually feels more spacious than nandos and actually get some elbow space.

Tried to copy nandoos but still far behind. The location of the restaurant is not very convenient. But hope fully they will improve.

The food is average, but i dont like the fact that you have to get up and order over the counter and pay first. The price is on the high side considering the restaurant and the food. The price for Chicken strips is very high considering the amount you get, my 4 year old son has a portion on his... More

When I first came accross Pandoos peri peri about 10 years ago it was a spectacular find. I couldnt get enough of it. But at some point a few years ago the flavours changed, and food became ordinary tasting. Can we have the original recipe back please ?

The food is quite decent but not spectacular by any standards. The menu is quite varied though. Worth a visit.

The prices are too high in this place,and the staff are not courteous here.This place is trying to copy Nandos and has a similar sort of menu.There is no music or ambiance to the place and I would say that parking is very difficult during the day.They would do better if they had reasonable prices .
