This was my third visit. On this occasion I had a light lunch of fries and coffee. The music was interesting and not overwhelming. The decor was smart and modern. My lunch was well prepared, presented, hot and tasty. What I am so impressed with is the service. The staff are so friendly and helpful, and also efficient and professional. I really do feel welcome here. On my first visit I was with my wife and a friend - they liked it too.

I was surprised to see the reviews for Dover Nando's are not so great, so I thought I had better try it out myself to see if things have improved!

Went to this Nandos for Lunch as we both love Nandos and usually i go with my partner to the one in Ashford which is always really nice, the waitress with brown hair and glasses seemed okay at first until we started eating our food and i noticed that she kept looking towards our table, i ignored this for the majority of our meal until her boyfriend to which it seemed came in and occupied her on her lunch break, at this point i felt as if i was being stared at and to my surprise i was!

In Folkestone for the night so what better way to spend it than with a trip to Dover Nando's! It's located on the St James retail park, which is also home to a large Next, Travelodge, Cineworld and other eateries. There are hundreds of parking spaces at the retail park. They currently do not charge but this may well go to £1.10 per hour very soon. Dover Priory train station is half a mile walk away. Dover Castle is half a mile walk away too.
