“Great little place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

Came here on a recommendation, and what a recommendation!
First off the waiter/owner could not have been any more helpful or friendly. There's a great choice on the menu and most importantly of all the food is superb!
If you're in north London pay this place a vist.

“Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Worth the detour off Holloway Rd, this place is a great find. Delicious food and great prices. We had the Caribbean chicken which was great, and we'll definitely be going back to try the other marinades!

“Hidden secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

I would like to call this place a "hidden secret". It is lovely to know a place like this in the busy city of London. Great food, great staff, great atmosphere. Having this restaurant close to home really makes you skip cooking some more..

“One of Holloway's hidden gems”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

Chicks on Fire is down a slightly uninviting side street off Holloway Rd (also home to a decent pub in the form of The Swimmer). It is like a Nandos for grown ups we had a very good lunch, the chicken is as you would expect excellent as were all the sides. Food was very well presented on slates and the chef took the time to come and explain the dishes.

We visited to the back to a very positive mention by Grace Dent in The Evening Standard - can't argue with what she said well worth a visit.

“This place is amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

There are precious few decent places to eat on Holloway Rd but Chicks on Fire changes all that. Delicious chicken, very generous portions, beautiful presentation on really elegant slate platters, incredible salads and a chicken burger which was the best one I have ever had. The owners are very friendly and I can see this place becoming a bit of a cult destination for anyone who lives in North London.
