Amazingly cooked food, lovely ambience, and most inportantly the friendliest and accomodating waiters. My favourite dish that i always eat; Butterfly Chicken and they do it right everytime. The staff are just the sweetest yet professional. Eveything is always on point. Great experience overall.

First time at one of these. I had a salad with double chicken added. This was one of the best chicken salads I’ve ever had. The peas tasted fresh and minty. Food was delivered rapidly for a Saturday dinner time.

Stopped in for a bite to eat. Never had Portuguese before! I had a peri peri bowl that was wonderful! Portuguese rice, arugula salad with grilled corn, hummus and chicken strips with the best sauce! Mango lime? Definitely a good stop!

Nice menu with a choice of sauces. The chicken is very tender and juicy. It's a little pricey but they have a large variety of sauces.

I really enjoyed the food. Keep in mind that you order the food at the counter and they bring the food to you. Food seemed a bit over priced, but that could just be DC!
