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

This Nando's was easy to find using satellite navigation even though it is in a shopping complex, something which has proved to be a problem in the past. The branch is visible from the road and parking is rather easy as there is free parking right outside the branch in the rather modern Castle Point Shopping Park. Other outlets in the immediate vicinity include Orange, Marks and Spencer, Asda and B & Q.
We were immediately seated on a Tuesday lunchtime and went straight to order as there was no queue. Although the manager (working at the time at least) was rather skeptical about the concept of Rate YOUR Nando's, there was no reason to complain about the service. The food arrived exactly 4 minutes after I ordered which just about gave me time to collect my cutlery, extra hot sauce and sit down.
The food itself was of a high standard but I definitely could have eaten more. The peri salt was particularly generous.
It is quite a spacious branch with some eye catching artwork and the dancing red chillies on the windows provide a nice touch.
Well worth a visit if you are near the New Forest!
