What is it about this place? It isn't too crash hot to look at but that's OK; I'm there for the food not the decor. The service is fast but rude - don't ask for extra sauce as they charge extra. Don't question how long it might take because they don't like it. In fact, just read from the menu,... More

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.

This place is always very busy and not much space between the tables, but the food is always amazing. We come from adelaide each year for the very typical food they serve here. The Charchoal roast chicken, chips and salad, sounds very simple, but is amazing. The the bacalhau dishes are very good too, as are the pasteis de bacalhau.
