A visit to Chatham Dockside, meant a trip to Nando's - my first for over a month. The outlet is located on the Dovkside leisure park, which includes a cinema, shopping precinct, Creams Ice Cream Parlour (yum!) and The Charles Dickens experience amongst other eating establishments.

The Chatham Nandos is a dream to get to with plenty of parking and a array of entertainment values at your fingertips. Me and my workmates came during lunch for a leaving meal. We were seated really quickly which was great considering there was 8 of us. Food was served virtually as we sat down and the longest we probably waited was 5 minutes. Whilst we all ordered different things we all tucked in, some more happy to devour the heat of Peri Peri then others!

This store is below the Dickens story as part of a mixed leisure, shopping, housing centre. The housing was very high end and round the back, the shopping was very cheap and reduced outlets. There was a slight tacky feel to the area in large caused by the big screen bill board and speakers blaring out twaddle. I didn't go into the Dickens story but I assume from the advertising that it visualises the story's from Charles Dickens' books.

This Nando's is located on the same retail park as Dicken's World down on the quayside. It is a reasonable sized retail park with the Dockside Outlet Centre with other eateries and usual suspects, as well as an Odeon cinema. Parking is free in one of hundreds of spaces.

I doubt if i will be returning here , this is not my first experience of poor service at this nandos. Firstly you are expected to wait for at least 30 minutes but the staff expect you to wait in the doorway like cattle and refuse to call your mobile /come upto the bar upstairs when your table is ready.

As a Medway resident I ruddy love that we have a Nandos, Chatham Nandos is the only 1 in the towns of nearly 250k people. The next nearest is the Maidstone branch. This would explain why you very rarely see this branch empty.
