Best chicken, way better than Nandos. It's marinade is awesome. I have it with tomato rice and salad and their secret green sauce is a must! Get there at 12 or else the queue can get very long.

No frills place with a queue stretching out of the door. The chicken is incredible and seasoned rice and the amazing green sauce the perfect accompaniments. The portions are big so great value for money.

Usually treat myself here during lunch. Food is great value - huge portions. Chicken is great. Wasn't a fan of the beef last time. Staff could be friendlier - sort of lets the place down. But food is fab!

Big portions, nicely cooked with a lovely green sauce. You can opt for Tabasco on top to make it spicier which I highly recommend.
