Average charcoal chicken. Was a bit tough. Sides were ok. A bit on the bland side. Chilli sauce was awesome but in general this place is nothing to write home about.

I can't deny that this place makes great portuguese chicken, but its just like a factory - with all the noise of a factory to boot. The staff have to work very hard to keep up, but they could actually acknowledge your existence occasionally - you'd get better service in a soup kitchen. I go somewhere else now - there's... More

This place is so good that you have to queue for service. The chicken burgers is a must. They also have an authentic Portuguese restaurant with a very good menu.
