Description: We do deliver to your hotel room, just call us, we speak English. The best mozambican food in Lisbon and probably in Portugal, we have been open for 30 years and we do unique food. Came and try the best chamoussas in Lisbon, the Makoufe a dish that the chef recommends and the Piri-Piri Chicken without doubt the best chicken in Lisbon for sure.Wi-Fi available inside for customers

Thanks to sites like these it's possible to find these kinds of small restaurants tucked away in an alley. It felt like a neighbourhood kitchen in a good way with simple yet delicious food (can heartily recommend the lamb). Cheap as well, so there's no excuse not to go if you happen to be nearby!

Frustrated with Portuguese interpretations of piri piri sauce, I sought out a Mozambican restaurant at Cantinho do Aziz in Lisbon's Moraria neighborhood. Mohamed prepared our food - samosas, large tiger prawns and roasted chicken -all packed with flavor I have yet to experience at a traditional Portuguese seafood restaurant. The rice was also marvelously fluffy with a delicate hint of coconut. The service was excellent and the environment simple but extremely pleasant. The chicken was very inexpensive (5 Euros), and the prawns (16 Euros for 4 large). I have to say that I thought Aziz's was far better for seafood than the much celebrated Cervecería Ramiro.

We usually luche every Saturday at Aziz. Presently we miss the mother, she cooks better but it is a pleasant place, at good price. Suggestion: order Zambian chicken and beans with coconut. Also the shrimp curry is a god choice. Visit and confirm.
