Nando's 31 was in Cheshire Oaks retail outlet park, once the largest retail outlet park in Europe, and situated in the area of England with the highest robbery rate.

The Nando's itself is situated nearby a bowling alley, closed-sown daycare nursery, and several other chain restaurants.

Inside it's not massive, but decorated impressively in places, with a nice skylight, and barrel alcove table.

We arrived here soon after they'd opened on a Sunday, so all the food was freshly cooked, and very hot (I actually burnt my tongue on one the HUGE portion of peri peri chips).

Despite this, chicken was a tad on the dry side, but I hadn't actually thought about it until the others pointed it out.

I found the staff rather cheery, and the service pretty quick, though people entering after us were being made to wait in the doorway to be seated when there were several vacant tables available, and a few more that were being left untidy long after they'd been vacated by previous diners.

Overall it was an above average Nando's trip for me, let down by slightly sub-quality chicken.
