“Good food at a cheap price”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

This little place has to be amongst the best in Lisbon for simple, tasty and cheap food.
Clean and welcoming, was busy with locals as well as tourists. No chicken on the menu, but the pork was very succulent and the wine was good. Large portions too with homemade fries, saffron rice and salads. The fish dishes looked good too.

“Best Restaurant in Lisbon”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Near to metro station Rossio (green line), this is the best place you can come across. The furnishment is not the best I must admit, but it's extremely clean. The two ladies that run the place are very kind and even though they don't speak any language but Portuguese, they do every effort to make you understand. The menu is translated in several languages. The food is a wide selection of fish and is very cheap. The fish comes with fried potatoes and rice, they're very generous with the portions and everything is DELICIOUS!

“THE KING OF CHICKEN does not have CHICKEN on the menu..???!”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

To be fair, we did not eat at the King of Chicken because we wanted chicken ... It just doesn't make any sense that we couldn't get chicken here. In the words of Jz / Kanye ... What's a King to a God ... We went to Bom Jardin instead. Was excellent.

“King of Chicken Piri Piri Chicken”
Reviewed March 22, 2012

If you are in Portugal and want hands down the best Piri Piri Chicken go to Rei Frango its fabulous and simple!! you sit at a little table with no menu they bring you a huge plate of piri piri chicken, a plate of fries and a plate of tomatoes onion and olive oil. Its simply perfect but a huge mess you end up not using your fork you use your fingers, lots of napkins but I promise you it is SO worth it. We would drive for an hour to get this chicken almost bi weekly during the summer. It was one of my favorite memories of Portugal!
