Food
My friends and I were absolutely famished so the fact that the food came so quickly was a huge plus. I had a quarter chicken and fries (used my little chicken card thing to buy the quarter chicken, thank you nandos people!!). The chips were hot and crispy, really enjoyed them, got another portion. The chicken piece I got was a wing. I think it'd be nice if you could specify what part you want because I found the wing quite bitter and would have preferred a drumstick. However the breast bit was succulent and enjoyable. I LOVED the fact that I could use my hands without being embarrassed :D.

Staff
They did their job alright. They were polite and showed me to the toilet. Quick response from staff, but not extremely noticeable effort

Decor
Nice comfy seating, I liked the music :). The menus were pretty, and I liked the "feel" of the place

Location
Frequent buses and easy to get to. Very central and visited the small arcade afterwards (: .

Price
I must admit, being a student, it's a bit expensive, but it's worth the treat once in a while (:

Overall
Very happy about the visit, had a swell time!
