I went along to Nandos with my little sister. It was Friday and my mood was off so we went along to have our favourite food and have a rant session. We got served by a lovely kind gentleman. I requested for a grilled chicken wrap and he confirmed there was no chicken left for the wraps. That wasn’t a great start for me. It put me off and I only ended up ordering humus starters and peri peri chips.

What a cracking Nando's! Although we were initially worried by the fact that it said 'Coming soon' next to Nando's on the shopping centre mal, we knew it did exist and found it upstairs after a brief panic!

The lighting is funky and varied with a good range of seating, plenty of which offers great views of the bay! My chicken was as spicy as it's been in a long time and a good portion size which made dinner a struggle later that day. It arrived quickly and the staff were great.

This Nando's is located in the new additional food court within Ocean Terminal - home to Royal Yacht Britannia, on Leith Waterfront. There are thousands of free parking spaces spread across three multi-storey car parks. I parked in the red zone and this brought you right by the restaurants. There is also a Vue cinema within the complex.
