Brighton - Duke Street - Elliott Review
Having visited once before, I was really looking forward to coming back to this outlet, as previously the experience was simply wonderful. So first Nando's of the day, Brighton - Duke Street. Arrived and were seated immediately, being taken to a table downstairs. On my previous visit, I was seated upstairs, and now I have had the chance to sit in both and compare, I certainly prefer to sit on the ground floor. The problem with the basement is that you are constantly going up and down the stairs to do anything. Plus, the toilets are downstairs so you have a constant stream of people heading past you which did become a little irritating. However, the decoration and cleanliness of the outlet was as previous - very very good. The outlet is showing some signs of it's age now, but the staff do an excellent job in keeping it clean.
I went to order, and was served immediately. I ordered a quarter chicken mango and lime with peri-chips, redeeming a green reward and the remainder paid for by a gift card. All easy stuff for this Nandoca who was well versed with the till. A few moments later I headed back downstairs with cutlery in hand, ready for my meal to arrive.
I waited a total of 8 minutes, which is pretty good, and the food was very good quality. The chicken was piping hot, and smothered in sauce. It was absolutely delicious. It fell apart beautifully, and was very very enjoyable. The chips had a good sprinkling of peri-salt on them, and the portion size filled the entire plate. These were also hot and fluffy on the inside, which is a sign that they have been cooked to perfection!
After an enjoyable meal, the plates were cleared and the Nandoca was in very good spirits, and really did deliver a service with a smile. Top marks to Brighton.
This Nando's is located in the heart of Brighton, just down from Churchill Square. It is very easy to get too by bus or train, and there is also a large car park near the seafront that you can take advantage of. The outlet is surrounded by other stores and eateries, on a charming pedestrianised street which winds it's way down to the seafront.
Overall, a good visit. Certainly wasn't as good as my previous visit due to the location of the seating, but enjoyable nonetheless.
