Visited this Nando's late afternoon and there were just a few people inside. It's located on the Crownpoint Shopping Park, which is directly off the M67 by car. There are hundreds of free parking spaces for up to four hours free parking. It's a big shopping park, but no leisure activities. Denton train station is less than one mile walk away.

From the outside, it looks like this Nando's was going to be spread across two floors, but inside it's quite a large single storey layout anyway. Inside as you enter, there's a nice big circular booth in the window and then towards the back more booths - quite a few two-seater booths too. The lights in the back are in a style of tree branches hanging from the ceiling. All of the booths at the back have some odd blue/purple wallpaper. The toilets at the back were tiled in bright red.

I went for half chicken, chips, rice and I fancied some garlic bread as well. The chicken was a bit disappointing and was rather dry - really not very succulent, and a bit on the small side. I think the new serving dishes make the side portions slightly smaller as well... The chips and rice portion were an average size for servings nowadays - with the rice being slightly warm and the chips were actually nuclear hot. It's the first time I've ordered the garlic bread for a few years... and my word I won't order it for another few years for sure! I don't remember it being so dry and flavourless. It was like eating cardboard, with just the tiniest of brushings of garlic butter on. When you can get 9 frozen slices for £1 from any supermarket that taste far better than this, Nando's should be offering something truly delicious for the price.

Staff were pleasant enough - and the food came in just under 10 minutes.
