Date of Visit: 3rd April
A new place in Leyton! Today I went to Five Lads in Leyton, which has been only open for 2 or 3 weeks and is a peri peri grill restaurant . It was very busy after the jummah rush and they had a long wait for the chicken 25mins, so I ordered Gourmet Lamb burger meal, which cost an amazing £4.95, burger, with any side and can drink. Burger patty was fresh and thick but just lacked that special secret element, i think the burger needed some type of sauce inside, other than mayo. I got one side of chips and coleslaw, the chips where steak cut but slightly undercooked for my liking.
Before the burger I got some chicken wings for starters, at £2.99. These were brilliant. Possibly better than nandos? After finished the burger I had room for some a proper bit of chicken. I got a 1/4 chicken meal, an amazing £3.49.
This restaurant is a cross between a kebabish and nandos, space for around 25 people. I was very impressed with the food and value. The service and logistics are still being worked on, but it’s only been open for a few weeks.
— Update — Since writing this review, I have been back for take away 3 times. Yep, I think I have a new favourite place in town. I have tried the Chicken Burger which was good and also more chicken. The Chicken is on the small size if I am being honest, but for me, food and value are fantastic.
Will be going back again.

Move over Nandos.
The Food and Value are just hands brilliant. Service speed and organisation has room for improvement.
