went here today for a business lunch. I had the house salad with chicken and it was more than enough for lunch. At dinner they have a larger salad with chicken for a few extra dollars. Salad was great, all different lettuces and the chicken...More

I like this place. It's boisterous, fun, great chicken, outstandingly good matzoh ball soup (soft) but.....it needs more sides. Salad and potatoes do not a whole meal make. The chicken is consistently excellent -- fast grilled, and fast to arrive. However, my expectation of sides...More

We chose this place when we saw Portuguese food. Once inside we weren’t sure we chose right as most, if not almost all, of the menu is “chicken.” We both like Piri-Piri chicken, so we decided to stay and have supper. We are glad we...More

Not a very big menu but everything is made so well, my favorite poutine in the city, Great service always friendly and fast, even after they expanded it hasn't slowed them down at all or lowered the standards

I ate here after reading reading such high reviews. The chicken is very good, however, I do feel that it tasted similar to many other rotisserie chickens that I've eaten. I did like the piri sauce a lot.

Loved it! We ordered a little too much food. Everything was delicious. Our favorite was the poutine- fried with gravy and cheese curds. Yum!

Great tasting chicken and piri piri. The charred sandwich is amazing, highly recommended. Caesar salad had too much dressing on it. Poutine, roasted potatoes and fries were tasty. $7 for 16oz draft is pricey. Overall value was just OK, in my opinion it's a little...More
