Comments - Stand out in our monthly competition! What did you eat? Unique aspects? Parking/transport tips?: 

My fiance and I had just moved back to Edinburgh after a year abroad. My fiance's offices are conveniently located right across from Nandos on Lothian Road. He'd told me that it had just installed a new patio area for eating! Obviously being very excited about this, we decided to go for lunch on a sunny weekday!

When I arrived at Nandos to meet him, I noticed the patio area had gone! Had it ever existed in the first place? I'm not sure.... anyway it'd be a delightful addition as we do get sunny days in Edinburgh (I promise!).
So we went to get a seat inside, we were first seated in a little corner surrounded by lots of other guests, so we asked if we could move and the lovely lady said "Of course!" and we were moved to a quieter and more private area.

This Nandos is huge. It stretches back quite far. The staff are very friendly, especially at the till! And there's this neat thing at the till where you can leave your business card and might win a free meal!

I ordered the Chicken Pita, medium, with peri peri fries. This is my "go-to" meal at Nandos. I'm convinced nothing can beat it!
My fiance ordered the Chicken Burger, hot, with peri peri fries. We felt the portions were a lot bigger than we remembered, which was a very welcome discovery! The food arrived promptly, and we'd probably only been chatting for about 5-10 minutes.

Overall, wonderful food, friendly and quick service, and a great location for a Nandos. Perfect for a working or business lunch.
We dragged ourselves out to head back to work, full of chicken yumminess (that's a word, right?) and amazing free refills on our drinks!
Thanks Nandos!
