No stock of food.
It's not like you have a huge menu to deal with.
No rice
No mashed potato
No chicken wings
No coleslaw.
The other shop in the town is closed for refurbishment, sure the sensible decision is take in more stock to cope with the possible higher demand.
Poor management.
Sort it out it's not rocket science.

Nando’s 106 opened in central Derby’s Market Place in 2005. A couple of years before that, I briefly worked in the city. A lot has changed and been demolished/rebuilt since then, so it was quite difficult for me to get my bearings. It also means I’ve never seen either of Derby’s Nando’s! We visited on a Wednesday afternoon between Christmas and New Year, parking up in a pretty grotty but dirt cheap multistorey, about 5 minutes walk away.

I have visited this resteraunt twice in the past few weeks. Once for a meal and once to pick up a take away. One member of staff (Joe Seale) stuck out... he was so quick to come over each time I walked in to assist me and was very helpful/informative. Other staff were very friendly and smiley also. The food was great, especially the wine cocktail!! Thanks nandos team on the market place!!! Sarah A, Belper :)

An evening at Derby Guildhall to see Festival of the Spoken Nerd meant an afternoon in Derby which inevitably included a Nando's visit to the remaining establishment that I was yet to visit. Conveniently, this Nando's is located right opposite Guildhall right at the heart of the city centre.

On my visit to Derby I spent a lot of time looking for parking and eventually parked in the Cathedral car park on St Michaels Lane and walked in through Irongate. The store is on the edge of Market Place in the Cathedral quarter, though I'm not sure if Markets still occur in the square. There is however the Guildhall theatre and also the Quad cinema.

My partner and I had the full platter and a red pepper dip to start, the food was (and always is) exceptional. Very tasty and hot and it felt like we had loads to eat, I left feeling very full indeed. The staff at this nandos in particular are always amazing, so friendly and attentive, they make it feel like you are their best friend and can't do enough to help you out. I come here all the time and can't recommend it enough, wouldn't dream of going to a different nandos.

One of two Nandos in Derby, this resturaunt is located in a prominent position on the Market Square in central Derby. It is surrounded by banks, nightclubs, and closed up shops, so unless you are specifically aiming to visit this Nandos, you wouldn't really stumble across it on a day out. Non-the-less, this doesn't spoil the restaurant itself, which as you walk in I was greeted with a friendly smile, and whisked straight to one of the many tables.

Derby Market place Nando's has got to be the best one we have experienced, and let me tell you we have visited a few with my family or dining as a couple. Liverpool, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Sheffield, York to name but a few and nothing comes close to Derby. Derby is not our closest Nando's' but defiantly worth the travel.

We visited Nandos Derby as its our favourite place, this was also the day of our engagement. Even though it was torrential rain outside and there was a power cut halfway through our meal. The staff could not have done anything more to make us feel welcome and at ease and it made a special day different but equally romantic sat with little light in the room.. Thanks derby for looking after us and see you again soon because customer service like that is why we will return again and again..

I've been travelling to this Nandos 4 times a week for the last 2 years. All of my student loans went into that place! My friends who know me all bought me a fully topped up Nandos gift card as a birthday present!

I've been to Nando's many many times (just filled up my second loyalty card and am yet to use my free chicken!) and this visit was to celebrate a friend visiting from Spain. Bit of a squash fitting 7 people in one of those booths but we just about managed it. Staff were friendly and I am an awkward customer (no mayo, no tomato) and that was all taken care of well.

The best service i have ever had out of my many visits to nandos! 1/4 chicken with barely any bone, thick and tender chicken and lots of hot peri sauce. Lots of peri salt and piping hot chips. Very pleased. 10/10

Visited this one only a couple of hours after the Westfield as I still had a craving for more peri-peri!
As I'd parked at the ParkSafe, the walk back to the car park from here was only a few leisurely minutes - and the walk from the Westfield was short anyway - just through the old Market itself and into the (what seems to be) modern Market Square... just past the Ladyboys of Bangkok tent and just past the Jesus bus... :-)
