We were very impressed with our family meal the other night. Covid precautions were in place so we had take out. Service was quick and friendly. Chicken, potatoes and rice were all amazing - we also got some extra hot sauce for dipping! Teen son...keeps mentioning getting dinner from here again soon.More

The pork loin sandwich was a bit cheeky but very tasty with just the right about of spice. The ribs with potatoes were very well seasoned and wonderfully. The potatoes and were a lovely bonus. Dessert was the classic Portuguese tart which though made off...sight were good. I recommend going. Just warm good food.More

Was in the same plaza so decided to try it. Got a whole Grilled chicken to take home. It cost $14.99+tax. Once home, we could barely eat the chicken as it was too dry. It seems like they chicken was not fresh and they just...poured some Piri Piri sauce on it. We ended up throwing out half of it. Will not be going back.More

We went to RR for lunch on a Friday and was treated to a delicious chicken, rice and potato dish that was as big in portion as it was in taste. Will come back for sure. Reasonably priced as well.

I would say I go to Red Rooster once a week! We love it there. We get the chicken breast sandwich combo with fries and hot sauce on the side. Always fresh, great portions for a great price.

We stopped by on a Saturday afternoon for lunch. Didn't expect much as there were only 2 people eating there. Just figured it was another fast food joint. Boy was I wrong. We each had the BBQ 1/2 chicken with a Caesar Salad and fries...or rice. The portions were huge and well presented. The food tasted as good as it looked!! The chicken was far superior to any of the chicken joints I have eaten in. Crispy on the outside,moist and tender on the inside The salad was crispy and delicious.. Great value for the money!!More

On our way from east of Peterborough to visit our 90 year old mother in Richmond Hill and wanted to treat ourselves to a Portuguese chicken dinner (we are portuguese). Ordered family dinner plus ½ chicken. The chicken was so dry we could only eat...the legs. The potatoes did not look or taste fresh, the rice was tasteless. We ate what we could because we were so hungry. We left my mother and restutned to the Red Rooster to tell them. Instead of being helpful they insisted that there was nothing wrong with the meal. Not helpful at all. Will never go back. What happened to customer service? Non existent in this place.More

I have visited twice before for lunch, once was good and once was meh (over cooked, dry, no taste. I stopped to get chicken soup to go, normally it is very good & consistent. This time not so much, the noodles were so over cooked...they were mush and falling apart, very little chicken. 2 orders of soup. Not edible. I won't be back.More

WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER. If I could give this zero stars I would. My family and I used to be regular customers, loved the food, however, after tonight WE WILL NEVER GO BACK. Normally I order the chicken with potatoes (I do not eat salad,...and have asked in the past to substitute the second side for a soup, which was a no, and I decided to stick to the double potatoes). However, tonight I noticed that with the vegetarian dishes they came with a side of vegetables. I asked the waitress what type of vegetables and they were types I liked (hard being a picky eater). So I asked if I could get the vegetables and potatoes with my chicken. The waitress said they could not do that, and when asked why she didn't have any other response other than she doesn't make the rules. We asked her to get the manager, she rolled her eyes, and the manager came. The manager told me that she could not accommodate me because "if I do this for you I have to do it for everyone", I'm sorry but a simple side exchange is not asking you to do a back flip, and who is going to find out? And what are they going to do? We were even willing to pay a surcharge for the exchange as I did not want a plate full of starch, but it still was a no and she walked away from our table refusing to give me the vegetables. Handled completely unprofessionally. We then decided we had enough of the horrible customer service we experienced each time we came, paid for the glass of wine, and left. The restaurant lost probably $60 over not budging on $2 of vegetables. TO ADD: NO WHERE ON THE MENU DOES IT SAY NO SUBSTITUTIONS!More

This is now my husbands favourite place for Portuguese chicken. The flavours are great and the portion size is huge. I always have enough for lunch the next day. This place will become a favourite for anyone who tries it.

I ordered the sliced chicken breast and fries. Not sure what to expect but I had a plate with TONNES of chicken breast coated with an amazing spices sauce. The extra side of sauce was used for dipping the fried nummy nit was really good....The serving was generous enough to bring quite a bit of chicken home for lunch bonus.More

Where do I start when describing this restaurant? ...... I visited Little Brew Hops and had their Portuguese chicken and loved it! That's how my craving started, so I was on the hunt for authentic Portuguese chicken online and came across this restaurant which is...close to me. I read the reviews and was turned off with a few customers bad experiences, but I decided to try to have my own opinions. My boyfriend really wanted to go so on a whim we put off our plans for the evening to have dinner at this location. Upon walking into the restaurant, it was really clean! First thing I noticed, that's A++ for me. There was only one server and 3 cooks in the kitchen, our server was the ONLY staff up front. We waited 7 minutes with two other customers to get service and be seated. After finally being seated at our table we waited another 10 minutes for menu's! We recognized quickly we had to get our order in all at once or wait to be served every 10-15 minutes. After getting our orders in we waited another 10 minutes to get our waters and a bottle of pop. We ordered the salted cod cakes and chicken soup as our starters, which was to die for! The cod was disgusting and cold, really cold and left a bad taste in my mouth. I ordered the fish with garden and ceaser salads, as you have 2 side with each order. My boyfriend had the 1/2 chicken with potatoes and rice. When our meals arrived the chicken was over cooked and the fish was tasteless and overcooked. The rice and potatoes were tasty, I looked down on my salad and noticed the ceaser was missing, as there was no dressing! Lol, we had a good lol out of it though. My cocktail arrived and it was pour alcohol, lol. I couldn't drink it so I got a can of coke and made myself a rum and coke,lol. What I couldn't understand was the ice in the martini glass, it's in the pictures below.....that was a first 😞. We didn't eat our meals as it was not up to our standards, $85 later we were still hungry!...What a waste! We decided it was our worst dining experience, as we have visited quite a number of restaurants in the area. And while we were there we overhead and argument about the sizes of the sauce container! That was not pleasant to witness, but I read someone's review about this same issue.More

Terrible nasty staff. Think they are doing you a favor. They do not realize that we are the customer and we can chose where we spend our money. Chicken was dry . Sauce is expensive and not very good. Small potatoes were under cooked and...hard. Not worth the money nor the effort to go there.More
