Today I had cause to visit this restaurant in order to meet an old friend. Firstly I was pleasantly surprised with the warm welcome. I’ve been to many Nando’s and none have been so pleasurable as this one. So once seated, food was ordered and arrived prompt and hot. My friend and I then decided to have a wee dessert and coffee. Whilst waiting to pay I was approached by ‘Danny’ whom I can only presume is the manager due to the different coloured shirt.

Manager Danny fisher wasn’t helpful, we waited for 4 meals and only received 2, the other 2 was 20 minutes after. After which we was told they had lack of communication, unexceptable. The staff working Leanne smith and Ebony Aldred didn’t seem to help and seemed to be part of the lack of communication. However, Luke Evans was extremely helpful and very polite. He provided us with a solution, offered us free drinks and deserts.

Surprise Nandos lunch with my wife. Things didn't start promisingly with a wobbly table but otherwise it was a lovely Nandos lunch.

Surprise Nandos to catch up with a colleague who, last we heard from him, had been deported. Good to catch up, good chicken to catch up over.
I swear that Middlebrook Nandos is the fastest around! Easily got sitting, queuing, ordering, cooking and eating into our 45 minute lunch break.

As I felt unwell, I wished to order take out. We weren't hungry when we ordered so gave an hours notice.

We turned up on time and were told there was a 5-10 minute wait. As I was unwell, I wasn't happy but the restaurant was busy so I didn't say anything. We waited 20 minutes for our order, despite ordering online and being told our food would be ready at 1830.

I ordered Butterfly Chicken, Chips, Garlic Bread and peri peri salt I had been told the wait on my meal would be about 20 minutes as they had run out which I didnt mind waiting for. My friend ordered his also which was half a chicken, chips, garlic Bread and peri peri salt so we would expect them to come at the same time. After several drinks we had waited about 30-40 minutes after being told it would be here in 20 minutes so I decided to go up and ask what was going on.

This was my first and last time in nandos. What a complete waste of my money. I ordered 1/4 peri peri chicken with rice and garlic bread. There was no rice available, the garlic break was burnt and the chicken was so thin a barely had enough to fit on my fork, I am now still that hungry I will have to get sonething to eat from somewhere else and I still havent lesft the restauraunt. The table I was sat at was under a fan which would have been fine if it wasnt freezing cold and raining.

In the middle of a retail park with a great cinema so loads to do, this also means that parking is great and free and it has a train station 5 minutes away!

This Nando's is on the same massive complex as the Reebok stadium, so thousands of free parking spaces. I've only been twice to this branch and each time was quite a while ago. Both times I was there for lunch, so went for one of the pitta and wrap options. Very dry both times and so extra sauce on to make it more moist. I do think I was the first customer in on both occasions, so I can forgive this! Very helpful staff and no wait at all for the food.
