Love the charcoal BBQ chicken and the chips - some of the best chips you will ever find.. BUT, as others have said, avoid the Peri Peri chicken.. it's a shocker. Just a butterflied chicken covered in a quite disgusting Peri Peri sauce.. Nando's it is not. But stick with the normal chicken and chips and you will be fine!

I was having friends over for dinner, fish wrapped in alcohol ready to put in oven! Power goes out. OMG... hot foot it down to King Rooster. Friends raved over the chicken! Saved my night! Have been back twice since as my daughter says it is way better than mine!

Had the Piri piri chicken, was slathered in sauce, almost like it was swimming in it, it tasted really bad.

We usually love the chickens from King Rooster but tonight we went for something new, the peri peri chicken which was a huge disappointment. It was all covered in a sweet unpleasant sauce I couldn't eat it. I recommend the normal chicken, it's delicious but not the peri peri.

Have driven past this place for years. Decided to take the wife here for a late dinner. Interesting restaurant; has a drive-thru and ample parking and inside is very large and open. As a customer its great to be able to clearly see the cooking area so clean and well-attended. Its great to also see the charcoal firepit where the chickens are cooked. The restaurant is essentially devoid of detail with almost zero furniture inside. The menu is reasonably limited however very easy to read on screens. Prices are slightly above average. I odered the half chicken and the wife had the King wrap. Both were ample servings. Very tasty all round. Service is satisfactory / friendly. I intend on returning and trying other items on the menu. Recommended.
