What our clients say

James Chamberlain

I’ve been everywhere man, and this chicken is the best in the state. I’ve travelled everywhere to try delicious chicken delights and this place tops my list! Better than your el jannah, frangoes, char grill Charlie’s, Nandoes, Henny Penny, chickos. If you have been thinking about trying this place, I hope this review sends you into action. My advice is to prepare yourself for the best tasting, best looking and thickest chicken that’s been discovered since 1497!

I am a local in Parramatta. This place popped up in the last couple of years and I have to say that I AM TRULY LOVING iT! The service is great the food is amazing and the overall experience is wonderful. My favourite is the charcoal chicken with the garlic sauce of course. A special shout out to Jack. He is always upbeat, enthusiastic, professional, genuinely kind and delivers service with a smile every time ? I have to say in the last decade I have seen businesses come and go but I certainly hope that this place is here to stay! GR8 JOB GUYZ!! I will see you soon ✌?? PS. The way that they have handled themselves during this covid crisis can only be described as responsible, beautiful and invaluable to the community!

Would highly recommend this place, one of the best charcoal chicken places our team have ever tasted. Great customer service and even better food. We thank the team at Vasco’s for taking care of us from the team at Parramatta Smash Repairs.

My partner and I eat at Vasco’s almost every week. The chicken is amazing; the right amount of caramelised skin and so tender n juicy… so better than the Auburn n Granville chicken shops. John knows both our quirky orders, down to which type of salt we both have, and he always has a big beaming smile and a warm n friendly greeting. It’s the default ‘GoTo’ place when we can’t make our minds up what to eat. Cheers John. Tam & Angie

Absolutely amazing chicken! Super juicy and tender without being fatty. The chicken is also free range which is really important to my family. The chips were cooked perfectly and we still hot when we got them home. The people were lovely and approachable which made the general atmosphere really nice. Thanks guys!
