Additional Comments - This will make you stand out in the competition! Unique aspects? Student discounts? Parking tips?: 

After three very average Nando's meals in Singapore, it was time to hop over to Malaysia to find out if they do Nando's any better. Short answer: not really. My guess is the same master franchiser runs the two countries, since the design, decoration, and menu were almost identical. That said, Nando's is clearly doing very well here since every time I check they have opened up new restaurants, and this one we visited today on our way from the airport to the city centre wasn't even on the website yet.

As seems to be the pattern in this part of the world, the restaurant was deep inside an indoor shopping mall. We were seated quickly but on a table right by the grill, which was far too hot and we asked to be moved to a table further away to which the waiter quickly obliged. Ordering was identical to Singapore by using the QR code on the table, but luckily this time the sweet potato fries on the menu could actually be ordered!

The food came quickly and was a fairly mixed bag. Sweet potato fries were good though felt more American diner than Nando's, chicken wrap was decent, and chicken burger was very disappointing due to a past-its-best untoasted bun. I'm learning that it might be best to stick to the core chicken items rather than the burgers, wraps, and pittas which have all been disappointing so far.

Tomorrow we will find another branch and try something else off the menu!
