"The chicken is boiled, then roasted on spits. It’s very good: tasty, dribbly and served with an insipid butt plug of corn and some handmade chips." READ REVIEW

"It's delicious chicken, though, which is a blessed relief – restaurants have been built before around one ingredient which they've then failed to deliver in taste or quality." READ REVIEW

 
Critics' score: 8.5 Giles Coren Times
Reviewed on September 22, 2012
"What you have down here is a Nando’s-style menu, at Nando’s prices, but with free range chicken from a single Norfolk farm in a madly cool environment based on a Fifties American diner/dive bar, with lovely, kind, sexy staff." READ REVIEW

 
Critics' score: 6 Guy Dimond Time Out
Reviewed on September 20, 2012
"It's like a little bit of Brooklyn, or a Shoreditch speakeasy bar, in Kentish Town. The service is cheery, and fast - but you might have to queue, and you can expect to be in and out in under an hour." READ REVIEW

"Good people never tire of eating roast chicken, though. Nick Jones says of this place: “Chicken would be my last meal and so I wanted to get it exactly right.” He has." READ REVIEW
