Upon a number of visits to the place decided to review, since i think it deserves the proper rating. The place brings about closure, with an accommodation of different feels at the same time, passed by for dinner and the number of times i had been their dishes were most of the time on point, its a good place for...

What a great restaurant! The food was fantastic and the hospitality of the staff made it a worthwhile experience. We had the "green room" all to ourselves and we could also have a good bottle of wine from their selection. I will definitely go back. I can recommend the prawns.

Food - Good though spicy. Been an Indian, I should not complain about spicy food. Ambience - dim litted. Service - staff is courteous. Food was... More

The place is beautiful but the food is never the same cooked: sometimes fresh other times not, sometimes chicken is tough sometimes tender... First time I had lunch there was in September 2014 and we liked it a lot, then October 2014 was a disaster. We did not repeat up until mid 2015 and was just ok. Last time beginning... More

Although I don't know much about the portugese cuisines but this restaurant was good. I liked it mainly because they hosted an event for miss lesotho contest at that time when I was there

I visited Piri Piri twice. The first time it was for a late lunch when there were hardly any customers. The special on that day was a chicken schnitzel and it was very good. I got a big portion very reasonably priced and the food was good and the service friendly. Well, I decided to go there again, this time... More

The restaurant is in Old Europe or government and NGO buildings area uphill. It is a Portuguese style restaurant and piri-piri stands for hot supplements, which you may chose separately of course. I had a steak ,fries on the side and my favorite Heineken beer. I enjoyed it very much and the restaurant itself is quite refreshing. Recommended.

Piri piri has a wonderful selection of delicious Portuguese food. Definitely a good place to take friends and family, though it tends to be cramped so maybe not great for large groups. I've had the piri piri chicken (get the half chicken by the way, trust me), the cod cakes, and a steak there, and every time it was very... More
