This Nando's is located on the enormous Bluewater retail park which has a plethora of other shops, entertainment items and shops/eateries - including thousands and thousands of free car park spaces. This is next to The Glow Event Venue inside the centre itself, so head for that yellow sign on you'll be fine.

Arrived here approx 7:30pm and the branch was about 60% full, so no time to wait for a table or to order and the food came in just under 25 minutes, with the staff doing everything as expected.

The decor of this branch is the real standout feature. It's a very spacious, open-plan setting with lots of decoration. Bright red lampshades on free standing lights on each of the booths on the "outside" of the branch. There a wall just to the left of the entrance that's brightly decorated with different colours. The curved wall to the back-right has numerous large bright canvas paintings on it - but the best part is (what is presumably meant to represent) the bird's nest right in the middle of the restaurant, covering probably a third of the ceiling space. There are then several sculpted red light shades hanging from this. Everything, including the toilets, was very clean too - so full marks for the decor.

The food was also delicious. Two very good size pieces of well marinated chicken, a big portion of hot crispy chips and a nice portion of rice.
