We were contemplating between handmade burger and Nando's and finally decided to go to the latter. It certainly felt like a wrong move. We felt that the chicken was slightly undercooked with red streaks in the leg piece. We called the staff to make them aware of this. We were promptly offered a replacement, which never turned up for the... More

Nothing to get excited about but passable food and service. When we visited it was obviously a busy period and service was slow. The chicken was good but the sides disappointing.

The expectation was good till we entered. We have eaten in several Nando Restaurants, from London to..... and that is why we chose to eat here. The Take Away overtook the diners so expect a wait of at least 45 minutes - for students!! We waited for 20 minutes for a table then after deliberating over the menu for 15... More

We have ordered a collection for an office lunch however when the food was collected and brought back to the office, it was discovered that the rolls that were meant to come with livers were missing, also cutlery was missing. The mashed potato was literally burnt to the cardboard box that it normally comes in.

Nando's is a chain restaurant that does exactly what it says on the tin. I dont get the massive popularity of the restaurant, but I do like the concept so maybe thats why it appeals to the mass market. I do like how you can specify your own level of spice. Its good for something quick to eat. If you... More

Only been to a Nando's three times before and this was definitely below par. Both my daughter and I had the same thing and both were disappointed, and she's the regular eater of this spicy chicken. The chicken was dry, the sauce lacked bite. Will not be hurrying back again.

We visited on Sunday afternoon after going the cinema across the way. We were quickly shown to a table , the place was busy. After ordering our food was brought to the table quickly . We both enjoyed beautifully cooked butterflied chicken with sides of corn , mash , coldslaw and grains - all good. I like the Nando's concept... More

Have been to this Nando's a few times, always very good. Service faultless, as you do the ordering yourself! Prices for City Centre in general reasonable, although I found a price of £2:95 for a small tub of ice cream a bit excessive. I can appreciate profit margins on prepared food, but this price for something you could buy in... More

We quite often go to Nando's and it is always worth a visit. On occasions the service can be a little slow but that's usually when the restaurant is fairly busy.
