Being in Glasgow - I had to take advantage and after having had Nando's for lunch, also went for dinner at Springfield Quay. As I'd caught the train, I had a medium walk across the Clyde into the complex, but as the complex has a cinema, bowling alley and a host of other restaurants, there's hundreds of free parking spaces right outside.

Got here about 7pm on a Friday and it was almost full, so no wait for a table and no wait to order either, with the food coming in just under 15 minutes. Staff were friendly enough, but just the bear minimum going on.

The branch is pretty big with maybe 35+ tables - of which 10 or so are large circular booths which start near the entrance and sprawl across the middle of the branch. Around the outside and in the windows are a mixture of other booths, bench/settee seating and tables and chairs. There are several circular holes in the ceiling with plenty of lighting hanging down from them - with different shapes and sizes of wicker lampshades. With all the walls being full length windows, there's not much that can be done, so the blinds have a sort of tiger striping on them. This together with plenty of pots/plants and other bits of tree (!) makes for a nicely decorated branch. The toilets were in the corner past the tills and were spotless too.

The food was delicious too. Another generous portion size and very well cooked. Smothered in marinade and hot and moist right to the bone. Also went for the ratatouille to try and act a little healthier and the vegetables were very well cooked too. Near perfection again.
