This place is like take aways used to be back in the 70's. Great atmosphere with no fuss food. The menu is a bit small but all the dishes are great. I went here to have an early dinner with friends. It serves alcohol so you can enjoy a few drinks. Mainly chicken dishes with some salads.

Average charcoal chicken. Was a bit tough. Sides were ok. A bit on the bland side. Chilli sauce was awesome but in general this place is nothing to write home about.

What is it about this place? It isn't too crash hot to look at but that's OK; I'm there for the food not the decor. The service is fast but rude - don't ask for extra sauce as they charge extra. Don't question how long it might take because they don't like it. In fact, just read from the menu,... More

I can't deny that this place makes great portuguese chicken, but its just like a factory - with all the noise of a factory to boot. The staff have to work very hard to keep up, but they could actually acknowledge your existence occasionally - you'd get better service in a soup kitchen. I go somewhere else now - there's... More
