You can dine in or takeaway. Reasonable prices for super fresh food! I was honestly blown away by how good this food is! I can easily say that it's the best roast chicken I've had in a lonngggg time (this is my third continent in a year too so that's saying something!)

Took a Portuguese chicken and slaw home for dinner. Delicious with the garlic and chili sauces. Two of us also enjoyed the vegetarian padthai. Reasonable price total less than 40Australian $ fed 4 adults.Very helpful service.

Nice fresh char grilled chicken (plain or portugese) with about 20 options for sides. All looked fresh and ours was pretty yummy and large portions. 1/4 chicken + 2 sides for about $13. Worth a visit if you're in the area and want a good honest feed.

I used to live in Sydney and char was one of my favourites, I'm back visiting and had to pop in and was so glad I did! Chicken is beautiful cooked, the gravy is delicious and char definitely sells Sydneys best chips! Amazing! I will be back next time I'm here!

I actually go to the shop at Bronte. I buy cooked chicken and different salads. The service is prompt and the staff is always very pleasant. you can take the food away (which I do) or you can eat there. Never had to complain about food or staff.

We ordered take away for 4 people. 2 burgers with chips and 2 salads. Whilst the salads look pretty decent, they are actually pretty misleading as they provide most the cheap stuff from the bottom despite paying $10 for a salad (the Greek salad consisted largely of lettuce and some of the lettuce was brown). Burgers took around 6m to... More

We visited this place for takeway dinner food a couple of times. The first takeaway choice of three salads and freshly cooked chicken was incredible. The chicken fell off the bone and the meat and stuffing were beautifully savoury and the accompanying salad choices made for a fresh and tasty evening meal. The second occasion included more salads but this... More
