Our party ordered the 1/4 chicken, the pulled chicken sandwich and the poutine. All were good. Lots of meat in the sandwich. The fries tasted a little too oily when they cooled down. It was a little pricy but the quantity and taste made it...More

Delicious charcoal rotisserie chicken. Simple menu with soup, salad, sandwich and chicken dinners. Piri piri dip is great. Sides include delicious fresh cut fries, roasted potatoes salad or rice. Local craft beers.

Went for lunch after hearing it was pretty good. That was no exaggeration. The fries were perfect and the chicken sandwich spectacular. Moist flavourful chicken and lots of if on the fresh pillow soft bun. Will be back here tonight for dinner guaranteed.

I went here for lunch and had the chicken sandwich, which comes with melted cheese, peppers, onions and the piri piri mayo. It was delicious. The side of fries was huge and the gravy was awesome. I like the decor of the place, it’s low-key...More

I've come here many times for lunch and dinner. I've always gotten friendly service and the best food! Usually order a whole chicken with fries and caesar salad for me and my partner. I love dinning in because of the quick service and cozy environment.

I have been here a few times with friends and the food never fails. Service is good and it can get very busy here, especially during the art crawls. The chicken is the star. We always get the family meal as it's a great deal...More
