Timing is crucial when it comes to this Nando's. As it's next door to a Cineworld, expect long queues just before and after a big film is on at peak times. Luckily our arrival at 9pm on a Saturday was late enough to miss the pre-cinema rush, although restaurant manager Francesco thinks his staff do a better job when the restaurant is at capacity.

This is a fairly new Nando's with an array of interesting decor points. A huge wooden structure greets you as you enter on the left with gaps in which African art artefacts are placed. Several multi-coloured plates line the tall walls towards the back of the restaurant and there are plenty of impressive paintings on the walls too.

The staff all seemed to be in a good mood and very happy to help. Food arrived within 10 minutes and mine was delicious. I had a free quarter chicken and ordered a second one, but didn't specify I'd like it come out as a standard half. Having said that, I was happy with my two large breast pieces which were spicy, delicious and wholesome. My peri chips did the job, as did my garlic bread and halloumi. I can't give the food a 5 overall, however, as my girlfriend wasn't happy with the size of the chicken in her pitta. That was soon rectified with a more generous helping in a new one along with a free side of peri chips so full marks for addressing it, Nando's!

I was happy with both Nando's in Cambridge. This one is about a 20-minute walk from the city centre making it ideal for the cinema, bowling and arcade next door rather than the glorious sights of this beautiful city.
