Thought we would test out the Piri Piri chicken & it compared well with what you can eat in Portugal. Good portions, tasty baked potatoes & chicken had a nice zip & Portuguese beer. Friendly staff & good service.

This was our first visit to Piri Piri. It's both surprisingly large and surprisingly cozy at the same time. The service was excellent and the menu was flexible. The tomato and cucumber salad was simple and delicious. We had it without onions or dressing and our friends had both and we all enjoyed it. The fish special was a bit... More

Building needs update and a thorough cleaning. Visited for the first time with friends after reviewing the ratings and comments on Trip Advisor. Food was blend and not as traditional it claims to be. Not going back.

They have a lot of options that sound the same but are delicious. Like all the fish is seasoned the same way, it's just the fish type that differs. The waiter (who was super awkward) recommended the halibut so I had that. It was great and a huge portion. I tried the grilled squid as well that was great and... More

The waiter Tiago was lovely and very friendly. I took my parents there, we love Portuguese food and this place is it! The steak was divine, the fries too and the rice perfect. We had fried calamari that was crunchy and cooked to the right point, not rubbery at all! The cod fish was also great and so was the... More

Supposedly a Portugese restaurant . To me it was a regular average over rated Dinner place. The Piri Piri (chilli) Sauce they serve with bread and cook quite a few dishes in it, carries a great additictive taste. Service by over confident waiters could be better. Food is good but not exceptional, as I was told. Honestly, I came in... More

If you are looking for an inexpensive place to dine in this is the place. However, service could be funny sometimes especially if you are not Portuguese. Chicken, rice and potatoes are good though and portion is good for two people.

I love this restaurant - it had been a while since I'd been there and it felt so good to go back even to order take-out! We ordered 2 chickens with both hot and sweet sauce as well as a large order of potatoes to go. And those potatoes did NOT disappoint. They were amazing. I always find the service... More

Did take out so can't comment on service. But the chicken was dry, the potatoes (chemically rinsed ball-shaped) were pale and bland, the sardines were overly strong in flavour - inedible. Their hot-sauce had no flavour other than hot, waste of money. the rice was the only that even passed for reasonable. Overall bad experience and as professional chef I... More

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
The go-to area for new business start-ups, the spry and creative persona of the West End thrives along its streets. Its independent boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and shops offer brands that can't be found elsewhere. Buildings with ground floor consumer spaces sport up-top artist's lofts, and the West End attracts artists, designers, and fashion industry professionals to its living quarters. It is in the cross-hairs of gentrification, but still resisting it with ironic relish. Hot deals can still be found here on furniture and knick-knacks,. Its call to culinary glory is in its well-priced homemade Polish food, hosting Toronto's go-to spots for hot pierogis and cold borscht. High Park, the largest green space in the city, is a place for dreamers and poets to wander and rest, not to mention a number of energetic actors staging outdoor plays in the summertime.
