“YUM YUM YUMMMMMMM”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

The food here is amazing! Really tasty and fresh. I love it!

The only thing that holds it back from 5 stars is the length of time to wait for delivery.

“Happy Mondays - Better than nandos?”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

Been wanting to try this for a while.
Waited for half price chicken on Mondays £6.99 for whole chicken n chips.
Little wait, interesting chat with staff.
When i got home (30min after leaving) the chips were useless and soggy but the chicken was perfect! Only thing i asked for HOT and it really could of done with a bit more spice.
We made our own spicy rice and chips but mmm the chicken was still so tasty and a lot better than Nandos imo.
Happy will be back but most likely only on a Monday! Not at full menu price.

“Frango? Fo sho!”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

Now, I would assume you are are here looking for the story, yes?

Good. Let me tell you the tale of Mr Frango and his epic chicken.

Picture this, you have been been out drinking long into the night. The kind of drinking that shouldn't really be allowed. The kind of drinking that leads you to making terrible life decisions involving black tequila and sweaty night clubs. You eventually find your bed and gracefully pass out half dressed.

Hours go by and your heavy libation induced slumber is shattered by the crowing siren of your uncharged phone on the floor next to you. You have to work. You have to work hung over. In the hazy flurry of the last of last nights euphoria wearing off you manage to throw your clothes on and run to catch the bus and make your way to the dreaded 8 hour shift that you are in no fit state to be engaging in.

You sink a black coffee and come to terms with the fact that you are not going to be able to leave this paid prison until at least the early evening.

As the day drags on and your body groans with regret, your thoughts turn to food. Particularly, what food will be able to remedy this miasmic plague that has befallen you. It strikes you like a delicious thunderbolt - Chicken. Grilled chicken. Grilled chicken and wholesome rice and crispy golden fries.

The end of the day comes and you skip to the bus, knowing that when you arrive home, you are going to indulge in some fine Portuguese cooking. But from where? You rack your brain for places that would send out some little packages of edible glory. Nothing seems right. Like a flash, you whip out your phone and after a quick google you read about the fabled 'Mr Frangos'.

You dispel the niggling thoughts in the back of your mind and you disregard the negative reviews of terrible the food snobs. You order a mountain of delectable chickeney goodness. It arrives in less time than it takes for you to watch a cat play a piano on youtube. You thank the messenger profusely and take your bag of wonder inside.

Upon opening, all of the scents of savoury scrumptiousness fill the air. You can hardly wait to tear into the offering. Almost without taking breath you begin. The rice, perfectly cooked and spiced with skilful balance. The fries, crispy, soft in the middle and salted to a sharpshooter's level of accuracy. And the chicken... by god... the chicken. It is tender, golden, filling and mouth watering. It feels like your hard day and your hang over have been lifted by some divine poultry sorcery.

With a full belly and a happy face you fall into a deep slumber. Dreaming of how fabulous the meal you were lucky enough to just eat was.

So there you have it. That is the tale of Mr Frangos. The next time you choose to order chicken, heed this tale and choose correctly.

“Worst chicken I've tasted”
Reviewed 2 July 2013 via mobile

We decided to try this one night as a takeaway and it's safe to say we will not be trying it again, the lettuce in the burger was brown and off, the chops were cold and the coleslaw was sour to taste, also like it was off. The portion sizes were poor. Unfortunately for the money we spent I would not spend my money again or recommend this to anyone else

“Great food, Great service.”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

Been a few times to Frangos. The chicken is great, service is great, great value for money, and I will be going back! One thing though, I found the rice (side dish) pretty bland.
