Stopped off in glorious Glasgow on my way back to Brum and visited this Nando's late afternoon. This Nando's is just off the A82 near to the Botanic Gardens and just under a mile walk from Kelvingrove Art Gallery/Museum and Park. The nearest train station is probably Partick or Hyndland - both about a mile walk away. While there is lots of street parking, expect it to be full throughout the day. There are car parks near to the Nando's (such as the small Ashton Road priced at 20p/15 mins, 80p/1hr, £2.40/2hrs, £4/3hrs and £7/4hrs - and the larger Lilybank priced at £1.80/hr) - but if you are okay with a mile walk then you can get 2 hours free parking at Morrisons by Partick train station).

This Nando's is in an old garage and the building from the outside is spectacular. Inside, this Nando's is quite large. From the front, the restaurant curves towards the back, with the ceiling having coloured wicker lampshades for lighting - and at the back is where most of the booths are. Toilets are way downstairs through a lattice effect door and were clean and tiled in lime green/grey.

Staff were friendly and open to a bit of a chat. It was pretty quiet inside though. There was no wait at all and the food came in less than five minutes.

I went for a sunset burger and chips and it was delicious. The chip portion was very large and were all crispy and hot. The thigh fillets were quite large and piping hot and juicy. The bun was sweet and chewy.
