Been here twice,first in 2014 than a year later. Both time the food and services was crappie. .. don't waste you're money. The food is horrible!! The chicken was bitter the rice and potatoes are nasty And the sald is a joke. I really wanted to like this place that's why I tried to give it a second chance.

Ive come here 3 or 4 times and Im finally getting around to reviewing it! They have a few $10 lunch options which are super great and really filling, despite my size I do eat a lot.

I get the quarter chicken white with rice and an extra side of rice, since I prefer the rice to the potatoes they serve. The rice is awesome seasoned perfectly and they give me loads of it. The chicken breast is... more

Like previous posters mentioned, this place is similar to Nando's. Except the food and the service is much better than Nando's.

It's hard not to like Portuguese style chicken and peri-peri goodness. The portions are big and the food is never dry or burnt (as it's often the case at Nando's). The service is good and pretty quick. There is plenty of tables available, if you'd like to eat in but... more

This is another one of those restaurants that I've passed by many times and finally decided to take a look at. Galito's is a small chain of Portuguese-style peri-peri chicken outlets similar to Nando's. I've tried peri-peri chicken a number of times from different places, so I thought I would see how good this place is.

Overall, it's a good place, especially if you're looking for a halal... more

Never coming here again. I was expecting Portuguese style chicken and was incredibly disappointed. Came with my husband and kids, we had the mixed grill for 3. The chicken was dry, the kebobs were dry and spicy, the rice tasted like minute rice. I think the highlight of the meal were the fries, the only edible thing. Don't bother coming here.

Love it. Been driving by for a year, decided to stop in and try. It's quality food for reasonable prices. Love the chicken! Very unique taste.

I would give this place a ~3.5 stars~

I have been ignoring this place as I always thought it was same as Nandos. After trying the food at a yelp Elite event, I thought to give it a try. The place is very good, they have good size seating area with many comfortable couch booths.

This has a similar concept as Nandos and Mesh which is self server. You will have to order at the front and get your... more

Everything from the service to the food was amazing! I've tried Nando's before and I'd have to say Galito's blows them out of the water.

We arrived on a Friday evening and was instantly greeted by the man at the cashier. He patiently waited for us to decide on what we were going to order. Afterwards, he answered any questions that we had and mentioned things that we wouldn't have known... more

There's supposed to be one opening up in Milton, but we couldn't wait for then, so we went to this Mississauga location.

I would compare this place to Nandos for sure, but the service was much better at Galitos. The two of us ordered a full chicken with two medium sides instead of 1 large side (same price). It was delicious, and I enjoyed it with the hot and garlic sauce mixed together. The... more

I could not agree with my fellow Yelper Toni, same story went there with my wife for dinner, ordered 2 chicken dinners, the chickens were super dry and no flavor, my side was rice and it was horrible, my wife's side order was baked potatoes supposed be served with sour cream, when asked the gave us watered down Raita (yogurt chutney )

we did not put our foot in there ever again, the only good... more

My family has always been fans of Nando's Chicken so we were excited to give Galito's a try to see how they measure up.

Service was very friendly going in and ordering and were helpful since it was our first time (thanks Anne!).

When we sat at our table though, we couldn't help comparing the decor and style to Nando's. The wait time for our food was much longer too and Galitos wasn't exactly... more

My wife and I went to Galitos for lunch, for the first time today. We were looking forward to trying their chicken since it was advertised to be - "The healthiest, tastiest flame grilled chicken in the World"

We were extremely disappointed. The chicken was so dry it was like eating sawdust. The flavour was ok but nothing special. The price was extremely expensive for what we ordered. Over $30... more

The first time we visited was about two years ago. The place just opened and I wasn't so impressed with the food. But every time I go to T & T, I could smell their chicken (both are in the same area) so I decided to give it another try. We did takeout and found the food is way better than on our first visit. We've been back there multiple times. I like the double leg, corn, rice, and peri-peri... more

Better than the nandos in missisauga. Much spicier. It's also a Portuguese chain. I would go again.

I tried Galito's today hoping to introduce piri piri chicken to my wife.

The ambience and service was nice (although we couldn't fit in our booths, they are way too small and we're not big people), but the food was subpar.

I ordered a double leg with roasted potatoes - the potatoes were undercooked and bland, and the piri sauce tasted of too much vinegar (like Tabasco).

My wife had a chicken... more

Went to Galito's today, in my opinion their Chicken is better than Nando's, coupled with nice bright, open & clean restaurant.
Service was spot on, our waitress was very attentive and made frequent visits to check on if we needed anything.
Wings were little dry however Whole chicken was really moist and delicious. Overall experience was 2 thumbs up.

The best grilled chicken! Go for the hot level and get their garlic sauce on the side. Service is okay, I usually get it to go. Peri peri fries are great too...definitely better than nandos.

There was nothing for me to distinguish my first experience at Galito's from any experience at Nando's. That's a good thing.

The chicken is flavourful at any of the spice levels and the Peri sauce will always make anything taste good, fries especially.

Great restaurant. There needs to be more of these.

Nothing wrong with galito's but to be honest.... I'm tired of these chicken places. They all taste the same. We need more rotisseries. That said. Galito's has awesome staff and great food. The peri fries are decent but I'd go with the potatoes or rice. The chicken is well cooked and not dry.

Put that garlic sauce doe and you're set. Seen

The flame grilled chicken is delicious! The peri-peri fries are hand-cut, perfectly golden brown and spicy. If you don't like it hot, try the lemon sauce, it's super tasty. Overall I was impressed with the quality and flavour. Service is a little slow but it's worth waiting for. If only they would open a location in downtown Toronto!

I really don't know what to say, but it's a good alternative to Nando's. Something I would have once in a while.

Way to pricy if you ask me. 1 chicken and couple small sides and your well over 20$. Chicken is ok and the Peri Peri sauce is good though i must say. wont be going back though.

I tried it because I had heard that it was a similar taste to Nando's but didn't think it would compare. However, I was mistaken cause it was great! I got the chicken burger & peri fries, like I usually do at Nandos. But I found the chicken burger patty to be a lot thicker and same with the bread and the fries were great as well. Would definitely come back again!

You're not Arby's! Craving some roast beefery one day I drove to what I thought would be my once-a-year Arby's indulgence. Roast beef sandwich, curly fries, Arby's sauce, I obviously don't need to go on.

Upon arrival I found that my precious middle-upper-middle class of an American fast food chain was seized! I guess the 4th Amendment doesn't apply up in these neck of the woods. Anyway, what I... more

This place is very pricey, similar to Nando's in that way. The chicken was good. It had a really good taste to it. I had an "ok" experience. Nothing too special. Nice to go there every once in a while. But it wasn't that exciting.

I love char-grilled chicken and I ordered extra hot. The counter girl double checked that I wanted it that way :)

I ordered the family dinner that included bread sticks and two sides. We ordered the piri fries and rice. I was a bit bummed out when our order came as I noticed a small promo sign on the counter for piri potatoes. I would have ordered those instead of fries as I love them. They... more

Just like Nando's chicken but the rice is much better and larger.
But priced the same.

I'm gonna use Nando's for comparison because of similar menus and this is a flame-grilled chicken franchise (although South African instead of Portuguese but similar food and use of peri-peri chicken).

It is a family fast food type restaurant but it looks really nice with quite a few servers and you can sit at and eat so it's not as crowded with small tables as Nando's. They play loud music... more
