Nandos lovers. My partner and I had our first date at a Nandos (Colchester) and love to pop in now again to enjoy the food. We both agree that the management is outstanding. We have experienced a very welcoming and professional service by Manager Gus in the town centre branch, and it is ever so good to find him at the newly stablished restaurant continously delivering such high standards.

The music can be very loud sometimes but other than that I love Nandos and would recommend it to anyone.
They have colouring for the kids which is perfect for the ones who run around.
I think that should have a better drinks machine one with a lot more other flavours like what subway has.

My wife and I came in, was greeted by a very rude teenage girl. She told us it was a 20 minute wait for a table and a 30 minute wait for food. We sat by the door waiting to be seated. I looked over into the seating area to see how many tables was unoccupied. There was 12 in total. 4 teenage girls stood by the counter talking for 15 minutes. Eventually someone came to take us to our seats. The seats they gave us was one of the seats that had noticed had not been unoccupied.
