Finally got round to visiting a Nando's outside of England! While in Glasgow and mooching around Hamleys in the St Enoch Centre, I stopped into the St Enoch Nando's for lunch. Having caught the train in, I didn't pay attention to the parking, but a number of train stations (including Glasgow Central) are just a short walk away.

About 12:30pm on a Friday, it was already very busy and every table was occupied and three sets of people ahead of me - but I was still seated within 5 minutes and no wait at the till either.

The staff here were pretty friendly. Andrew was having a general chat with the people waiting and when bringing the food/taking the plates the staff were making conversation too.

The branch is nicely decorated. All the walls are white and I think the ceiling is meant to look like a big wicker basket. This sits over the main seating floor, with a few more table in the window. Interesting and different lighting all over the branch - and the stairs up to the toilets are decorated with circular discs which are paintings and also metalwork. Tables/chairs in the full length windows and bench/settee style seating in the main bit. There's also some high stools seating right at the back (near the drinks machines) and additional outside seating if required (and if it's not pelting it down). The toilets upstairs were also spotless and clean. This was a reasonably small Nando's but the most has been made of it.

The food took just under 20 minutes to come and was delicious. I had garlic bread and a chicken burger. The ciabatta buns were crisp on the oustide and soft inside, a huge slice of tomato and a huge piece of chicken slathered in marinade. The garlic bread was also baked ideally. Great stuff.
