Nearby: 
It's located south of the city, just off the City Bypass. Straiton Retail Park is mainly a large retail park with large stores like IKEA, Dunelm, Argos, Halfords etc and is also home to a large Asda and Sainsbury's, with other eateries such as Frankie and Benny's and Subway. There's no train station nearby, so is one to get to by car or bus.
Parking: 
There are thousands of free parking spaces across the retail park.

I ate at Nando’s this evening and had a wonderful meal with my partner, all the food we ordered was perfect just how we always love our Nando’s. We also witnessed when we were in a very rude member of the public being very abrupt toward staff because her food wasn’t ready.

I visited that branch yesterday and the service was horrible. I was really excited when I got there but then my excitement went out the door soon after. The young lady at the tilt told me my wait would be only five minutes as I was taking my order to go. I sat waited fifteen minutes right Infront the tilt. The young lady noticed my facial expression and offered to go see how my order was going.

This nandos is below average, staff are not that nice, take ages to sit you down or give you food. They get your order wrong and then just SWAP your food - food is also cold as it was sitting out for ages. Dirty floors and also no forks or anything out at the front - worst nandos ive been too

I had order your chicken breast burger and piri chips. The chicken was undercooked, could not eat and I received regular chips instead of the piri ones, all in all, a terrible experience for somewhere that's normally really good. Doubt I'll be back now.

This stand alone store on the edge of a retail park with massive amounts of free parking is quite impressive with a tile mosiac on the outside of 2 hands making a heart. The inside is wooden, bright and airey. We had a bit of a discussion to get a table we wanted, when I say discussion, we turned down a table that wasn't suitable for my disabled brother and when we were told to stay with that table we went and chose an other empty table and stuck at it.

Second Nando's of the day and onto Edinburgh's Straiton Park. It's located south of the city, just off the City Bypass. Straiton Retail Park is mainly a large retail park with large stores like IKEA, Dunelm, Argos, Halfords etc and is also home to a large Asda and Sainsbury's, with other eateries such as Frankie and Benny's and Subway. There's no train station nearby, so is one to get to by car or bus. There are thousands of free parking spaces across the park.
