Visited this restaurant with 9 work colleges today. The service and food we received was outstanding. The staff were very friendly and helpful and attended to all out needs. The food was piping hot and delicious.

This review is as a result to an upsetting visit to Nando’s in Blackpool. As a birthday tradition we have always visited Nando’s and as I celebrated this year in Blackpool we was excited to carry on tradition in this store. Me, my sister and 2 nephews arrived at the restaurant around 12:30 on Saturday 16th of June to be asked to wait for a table (we are used to this so wasn’t bothered).

As far as Nando's go, I'd say this is a pretty good branch. Always clean, full of friendly staff and the food never disappoints. I shared a whole extra hot chicken, peri chips, rice, peas, sweet potato mash, an avocado salad and halloumi with some friends and everything was perfectly cooked, full of spice and tasted delicious. The mains did take a while to come after our starter of houmous and pitta (about 15 minutes) but our waitress did apologise when she brought the food over.

My boyfriend took me to nandos for the first time today. I have heard from many people about how amazing the food is but after trying the food i fail to see what is so amazing about it. I ordered a plain char grilled chicken wrap with no tomatoes but when i received my food i found there was chilli peppers in the tortilla wraps itself and a chilli sauce when specifically asked for a wrap with no spice or heat of any sort.

I went to collect my takeaway Nando's, which I had to have during my break as I worked around the corner in Blackpool town centre. I had an extra hot butterfly chicken breast, with velvety mash and macho peas and a side of halloumi. The chicken was juicy and cooked to perfection, and really spicy, which was great. The mash was buttery too, which was the perfect side to my chicken. The staff were so friendly, from when they took my order over the phone to when I went to pick it up.

This Nandos is in Blackpool the party town of the north-west where kiss me quick hats, pubs and sticks of rock prevail. Going to this Nandos is certainly not a Party however! Based in the town centre just off the pedestrianised zone where the shopping area meets the pub area.

Great service as usual. However the leatherette on the bench seat was badly ripped and looked dreadful seat should not be used and the lampshade above our table was filthy. We mentioned the seat and just got a shrug of the shoulders!

It was on a cold, foggy evening up in Blackpool seeing friends where the decision to go to Nando's after a trip to the Coral Island Arcade was formed. Me and my other Nandistadors had been here when I was last up in the city back in April and the chance to go again together was not to be missed.

Very nice fresh nando's, although being near the door didn't help with a slight draft and the toilets are on the 3rd floor... should've used the disabled card.

I arrived at Nando's exhausted after being on the pleasure beach for 11 hours. There was a short wait to be seated. The staff were the friendliest bunch you could ever encounter, they couldn't do enough for us. The downstairs area was on the small side compared to a lot of Nando's I have visited, however it did have a larger area upstairs. Food was very tasty, I asked for my chips to be well done and they were (I can't stand undercooked chips!).

Ahh - what a glorious sunny Bank Holiday Monday in Blackpool. After a few rides in the Pleasure Beach it was time to get some lunch. Loads on offer - but just a couple miles stroll along the promenade to Blackpool Central and to the newly opened Nando's! :-)
