Recommended by a friend we went to Pau Brazil looking to get real homemade Portuguese/Brazilian food. And we found it! Delicious natural juices, tasty starters and a delicious "feijoada". To finish we ordered a "pudim de leite" and a real expressio, Portuguese style. Besides the restaurant you can get typical products including Muralhas green wine. We will definitely come back...

For us is a very good, because of the low value food in Reading area. It is small but authentic place,it is like a cafe more than a restaurant, but our lunch was tasty and different. Big portions. We had the filloada and the cod. We don't like the deserts very much, flan and pastel de nata was average. You... More

I went there last week and absolutely loved the food; it's very tasty; and I was very well looked after by the waitress. Place is small and cozy, with a small shop downstairs and restaurant/cafe upstairs. I will definitely be eating there very often as I have just moved to Reading and miss having some Brazilian food from time to... More

I went here today with a friend. The restaurant was very busy so the service felt a bit slow. However, as we were not in a rush, this was actually perfect for us. The food was delicious and we will definitely come back

I visit Pau Brasil at least 2x a month. It a simple place, no frills place, but probably thats why I like it so much. Food is great, service is great. I highly recommend.

Authentic Brazilian food with a friendly vibe, Ivie has made a cosy and inviting place to get away from high street sameness. Whether you're here for a full on meal (try the feijoada), coffee and cake (custard tarts - yum!) you can't fail to be charmed by this place.

For a while we have been to visit this place, so much we heard about it and indeed worths everything told. This is not a big restaurant or business, but an independent business lead by a great lady. A home feel restaurant and grocery with typical food and goods and the food has a very nice home-made taste. Great food... More
