“A tasty and cheap alternative to Nandos”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

The chicken is always equal to or even better than nandos and it's cheaper too. Great place! Prompt delivery with their takeaway too.

“An only slightly much worse version of Nandos.”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

I've only had the displeasure of ordering from here once, after what seemed like a great offer from a flyer it turned out to still be nearly as expensive and over priced as nandos is. Still, we ordered & was not happy with the quality, below average takeaway with a premium price.
Food was prompt & easy.

“A slightly healthier than usual takeout service which shamelessly models itself on Nandos”
Reviewed March 13, 2012

Have eaten from here 3 times now and it's not bad at all, as long as you don't expect everything to be the exactly the same as Nandos.
The chicken is well cooked and fairly tasty, although I've asked for it to be mind blowingly hot each time and it hasn't been yet, so have added my own hot sauce, which I always have plenty.
The pitta with peri peri drizzle houmous is a great starter, and easily enough for two.
The chips with seasoning are nicely cooked also and come recommended.
Things to avoid/take note of- the corn on the cob is awful- tried it twice now and is always quite dry in parts and rubbery in others- perhaps they should cook this to order in future.
The rice as mentioned by a previous reviewer is like Indian pilau rice and although not bad, doesn't really fit in with the Portugese theme they have blatantly pinched from Nandos.
Charco's seem keen for you to order online as opposed to phoning- one night I rang and rang and could not get through so had to go elsewhere.
Overall, a decent takeout that is a cheaper (and easier) alternative to Nandos.
