This is a very small Nando's restaurant and unfortunately you can see right into the kitchen from most tables - we were sat right by the kitchen and were able to count at least 3 microwaves that were constantly being used to heat up corn, veg, peas - most of the side dishes that Nando's offer. Such a shame that... More

Good Nandos. Great,quick service. Tasty as always. Music TOO loud and speakers distorting :-( great location near the station in Friar street. Decor not as good as the Riverside Nandos but still enjoyable.

Always dependable with tasty food and has a good atmosphere. Near the Oracle and Cinemas. We have visited other Nando's and tried most items on the menu over serval visits and this one is particularly good.

Met up with family after travelling in by rail. Not to far from the station. Food was nice, but portions are not big, so make sure you order your side dishes to bulk them up. Seemed to be understaffed and they all looked tired and fed up.

We ordered no-spicy liver as our daughter is little and doesn't like spicy food yet. It took three rounds to get something not really spicy but you could still sense it. They don't seem to listen to you properly.

This place is good for some grilled chicken and famous peri peri chicken. Order a glass of red wine with it and your long tiring shopping journey will have a perfect day end.

I visited here last Saturday with my elderly mother. Yes, the restaurant is a chain, but the service was excellent and the food was ample. It was also well-cooked and presented. I also enjoyed the atmosphere. We waited 10 minutes for a table, but in many ways that was a vouch for sincerity as a busy restaurant equates to a... More
