Went today for lunch with my family and service was bad, forgot some of our order...it can happen to everyone so no big problem there...but the so called "manager" came to our table arguing that we hadn't paid for our drinks when we clearly ordered bottomless drinks and got glasses!

I was served by Josh and I'd give him 10 chilli's. Always gives service with a smile and a bit of friendly banter. Employee of the month for sure! :)

Time for the Northernmost Nando's in the country! I think this is the first time I've ever said 'Empty' for 'How Busy?', since there was literally only one other table occupied. I was therefore sat immediately and ordered right away.

A night in Aberdeen always meant I was going to visit both Nando's and since this one closed at 10pm, I visited this first! This one on Belmont Street is just a five minute walk from the other one in Union Square, which means it's also a five minute walk from the train station and where cheap parking is (at Union Square).

This store is down a pedestrianised street in a city which whilst built and dependant on the oil industry seems to have a very car hating council. We spent a long time driving around trying to get a parking space before eventually going down Harriet street into the multi storey car park which cost £2.30 for 2 hours, 3 hours for £3.30.

This Nando's is very handy for me as I live nearby. It is also convenient as it is close to numerous shopping centres in Aberdeen.
