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

Entering the outlet, you walk down a short corridor, which makes up the waiting area. Unfortunately it's not very well segregated, so being seated near this area is not great. I was greeted after a short interlude, and shown to a table next to the Nando's Christmas tree.

After a short deliberation over the menu, I went to order my meal. I waited a short while whilst the staff member finished their conversation, and placed my order. The Nandoca wasn't very confident, and seemed confused by my order. After putting it right, I returned to my table via the sauce and cutlery point.

Meal arrived after a brief 10 minute wait, and looked a little dry. I ordered chicken burger mango and lime with chips. The lettuce in the burger looked like it had seen better days, the tomato was alright, but the chicken quite tough. The burger bun was crispy but cold. The chips were fresh and very soft.

The outlet is split in to three sections. The front is quite open with plenty of single tables, and a long table in the centre. The middle of the outlet contains the till and grill, cutlery point, and stairs to upper level toilets. The rear consists of even more tables. Decor looks quite clean and fresh, with some quite nice Nando's artwork.

The outlet is located in the centre of Canterbury, down from the Westgate Tower. The branch is best reached by foot, as car parking is available quite far away from the outlet. The bus station and rail stations are also a reasonable walk away from the outlet. There are a number of other outlets near this Nando's, mainly pubs and takeaways.

Overall an OK visit. The outlet is quite nice, just let down by the food and some of the staff.
