Nearby: 
just a few minutes walk from Great Victoria Street train station and just round the corner from the National Trust pub - owned by Nicholsons (The Crown). A ten minute walk will also get you to most places in the City Centre - St Anne's Cathedral, City Hall, Titanic etc. This Nando's is up on the third floor of the Victoria Centre. It is well worth going right to the top of the centre for a 360 Belfast view from the atrium.
Parking: 
Parking is wildly different and many car parks have very different opening times. For example, if you don't mind the 10 minute walk, park over the river by Titanic/Odyssey for approx 90p/hr - but park in Victoria shopping centre for £3/hr!

I was served by a girl named Rosie in the Belfast Victoria Square store. I've never had nicer customer service wherever I've been, she even gave me suggestions on different sauces as I usually stick to the same one. She is a credit to the store and I will be returning a lot more due to her service.

I have always enjoyed coming to nandos wether I'm with friends or family and whatever the occasion. This time I was just having a nice cheeky nandos with the lads as my friends call it.

So... another 26.2 miles down and what better way to comfort eat than another Nando's??

Had an excellent customer service experience from your server, David! Extremely polite and went out of his way to suggest rearranging my order to a platter to make it a reduced price but the same food! He was very helpful, very knowledgeable of the menus and making me feel happy to eat here.

This was my first visit to the Victoria Square branch, my first visit to a Nando's in Ireland and made me the first of my friends to visit a Nando's in Ireland too. For those that don't know, it's located on the top floor of a rather large Shopping Centre called Victoria Square. Victoria Square has excellent parking facilities in the form of a huge underground car park, the parking itself can be expensive depending on how long you are there for though.

*parking tips- park after 6pm as its prohibitively expensive before - £8:40 for three hours

*I got a Nando's transfer/tattoo. My friends are soooo jealous. I posted it on facebook and everyone was dying to know where I got it.

*Outdoor seating - a very nice touch. Sadly too cold to sit at it on Sunday

*Friendly staff, fast service, lovely food.

They are fussy on redeeming stamps at this one and this cause some problems and ended up ordering my mums and my chicken to gether in order to use my card. The large chips arived aboutr 10 minutes before the chicken did :( didn't really enjoy this store much. was at top of large shopping centre and outside seating available, sweeping window. Mens and womens tolets very dirty with wet seats and loo roll all over floor of womens loo which seems strange? Close to cinema

Situated in Victoria Square shopping mall in heart of Belfast, this restaurant is ideally placed for shopping, going to the cinema (Odeon) or sightseeing etc.. For cheaper parking consider the Park & Ride at Queens Bridge, it's only a short stroll across the bridge to Victoria Square, and you'll get the chance as you walk to get up close and personal with one of Belfast's largest pieces of public art "The Ring of Thanksgiving" lovingly known locally as "Nuala with the Hula".
