Yet another cold meal with poor service and a very long wait at the Glasgow Fort, come on Nandos, what a great size of restaurant freshly refurbished and inviting but the marketing doesnt support the product. Cold food again and the order wrong again !
You seem to be making a habit of this at the Glasgow Fort.

Ordered a takeaway and the food we got was very disappointing. Regularly eat at Nando’s and so was shocked at the portion size as well as the food being burnt and rock solid.

Never been so disappointed. Went for dinner at around 8pm with my mum. I ordered a burger and Piri salted chips and sweet corn, my mum ordered a salad without chicken. We waited around 40 minutes for our food. I noticed my food sitting on the hot plate for over 25minutes. When my mums salad was ready we were passed out plates from over my mums head from the boy behind the booth. I tried my chips to start which were hot on the top and cold on the bottom!

253 visits on our Chilli count and I have never experienced such ignorance and arrogance in all my years of eating in Nandos. Unfortunately my Peri Chips were freezing cold, not normally a problem but unfortunately I had the displeasure of encountering Erin, most certainly Nandos most cheeky arogant and Ignorant staff member and would be better served drowning puppies to give her pleasure.

After enjoying our food my wife and Iwere sitting talking when I looked at the wooden wall decorative panels and the rough timber decoration running right to the ceiling and noticed months of dirt and dust on them.We highlife do this to a staff member who said he would inform management of our concerns. We won't be back.

On my way up to Angus for a second week meant I could stop in to another couple of Nando's on the way and this time I went for The Fort at Glasgow. There are a couple thousand free car parking spaces on the retail park, which is home to a host of other eateries and shops, as well as a DW Fitness gym and a Vue Cinema. Easterhouse train station is the nearest and about a two-mile walk away...

This store is at the Fort shopping and leisure complex nearish to a Vue cinema and benefits from a large free car park which confusingly faces the back of the store and the front is on the footpath that circulates the store. An area at the front was cordoned off by planters and I assume they have tables and chairs here during the summer.

Always have to wait for a table because they are so busy. That's not a bad thing as we usually leave our name and number then do a little shopping till they call us.

Always had good service at this Nandos, the food has always been delicious and perfectly cooked. The staff can sometimes be a bit rude though and although there was no wait at my last visit, there usually seems to be a long wait for a table and last time the staff didn't bother to phone us back when there was a table free.
