Dining options: Delivery
Description: Diego's Peri Peri opened its first store in 2010 in Southampton. From the beginning it was known as the place who sells the REAL Portuguese Peri Peri Chicken . This store was one of the first restaurants in the UK to offer Real Grilled Food.The Diego's Peri Peri concept is based on "Portuguese Flame Grilled Chicken" combined with a specialised Grilled Foods menu as well as the famous Portuguese Pastries and Coffee. The motivating factor for this choice was the demand for consumers for "exotic" yet healthy dining. Care has been taken to ensure that the cooking process is as healthy as possible by using dry herbs and spices. ​As important as the Diego's Legend is, so is the marinade recipe used for Diego's Chicken, which is so old its origins cannot be traced. Using the finest and fresh quality chickens, Diego's Chickens are marinated for 24 hours and then 100% flame grilled to absolute perfection. Diego's is famous for bigger portions that are spicy or not (you choose your flavour).We have the tastiest chicken, chicken burgers and Grills in town and we are certified Halal by Winterton Brothers.​Home / Office deliveries can be done either Lunch or Dinner time subject to distance and minimum order charges.Come once...You will like us FOREVER...

“Good peri peri chicken”
Reviewed 7 August 2013 via mobile

I wouldn't take it as far and say Iit's the best but I enjoyed it. The price was okay and the service was standard. Can't expect too much from the environment since its a small place. I would recommend this place to anyone. 4/5.

“My favourite place for peri peri chicken”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

I have dined at Diego's several times over the past year, so this is more of a review of my collective experience.

On the whole I love the peri peri chicken which is full of flavour. I also really liked their burgers as well.

Waiting time is comparatively longer than other restaurant, but that is understandable since the food is cooked to order (rather than pre-cooked like other places). I am more than happy to wait longer for my food knowing that it is being freshly cooked.

Something else that caught me by surprise was how good their pastries are (especially their "nata" pastry). The nata pastry is a Portuguese style egg custard pastry, and it is by far the best egg custard pastry I have ever had.

Finally, the Diego's website has been recently updated so that you can now order online. The Diegos website makes it amazing quick and simple to order online, using their intuitive ordering system.

Would definitely this place if you want the best peri peri chicken in Southampton!!!
