“DELICIOUS!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

The food is so delicious and affordable! Lemon and mango chicken are my favorites with rice and grapefruit soda. Service is not that great as does get very crowded and the cashiers move slow.

“Great peri peri chicken, fun for families.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

My family first heard about this restaurant because of my daughter's obsession with one direction. However, it really is a great place to eat. The chicken is flavorful, juicy, and portions are large. Some of the sides are really unique, like the peas with mint and the butternut squash salad. The soda machine was cool if you haven't seen one like it before. It offers pretty much any variation available on coke products. The service was a little unusual: you place your order at a counter, and food was brought to the table. Drinks, silverware, and kids' frozen yogurt is self-serve. Overall, a good choice if you are in the area, and there are a few locations nearby, such as in Old Town Alexandria.

“Good & tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

I'd eaten at this chain in London and was happy to find it now in DC area. Overall, it's a tasty chicken meal that's enjoyable and good on your budget.
BTW - If you like spicy go for the hottest available and see if you can take the heat.

“Good food - but need to streamline the ordering process”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Nice food and good service even when they are very busy. The ordering process could be streamlined quite a bit. The chicken and sauces were as good as Nandos everywhere else.

I liked the fancy coke machine with endless permutations
