Comments - Stand out in our monthly competition! What did you eat? Unique aspects? Parking/transport tips?: 

There was nothing inherently wrong with the food (when it eventually came out), but the whole experience was just terrible.
Firstly, the (obviously racist) manager intervened when Lap tried to claim a free whole chicken (with a 100% legitimately stamped card), and told him that one of the stamps (the one ON the half chicken) wasn't complete.
I went down instead, and was served.

Other than that, the place was absolutely freezing, we were seated next to a dirty broken window, we weren't shown to a table, or checked up on, there was no water machine upstairs, and the Coke tasted like melted ice lollies.
Worst Nando's I've been to so far.

If I rated Nando's, this'd get a 1G (I think Gloucester Road has set an unmatchable precedent for Nando's direness).
