The third Nando's in Edinburgh for me to visit, this one is a little away from the city centre, and as such isn't permanently busy so you can enjoy a nice meal in comfort.

I was shown to a table, number 20, which is close to the door and does get a little draught when the door is open. After a short ponder of the menu, I went to place my order. I was served by a very helpful and friendly Nandoca, who was very good and most certainly deserved to be graduated from a trainee!

After less than five minutes, the meal arrived, and looked very impressive. I ordered a Churrasco Thigh Burger Mango and Lime, with chips, spicy rice, and a glass of Irn Bru to wash it down. The burger was piping hot, with plenty of Peri-sauce. The burger was stuffed with Fino-slaw, which was delicious. The chips were good, helped with some Yellow Pepper dip, and the spicy rice nice and hot. The Irn Bru was truly divine and helped wash this meal down a treat.

The outlet is a reasonable size, and can accommodate a good number of diners. To the right hand wall there are a number of booths, normal seats in the middle and front, with the till and grill to the left. Toilets are at the rear. There are two large chandeliers suspended from the ceiling, and plenty of noticeable artwork on the walls.

This outlet is located on the Fountain Park leisure area, along with other outlets such as Pizza Hut, Cineworld, and Virgin Active. It is a short walk from Haymarket rail station, and there is also plenty of free parking outside the outlet.

Overall a great little outlet, and in my experience, the best out of the three I have visited in Edinburgh!
