Soft drink
£10.50

PLACE: Table 6. Right by the disabled toilet. It felt good to visit the toilet when it was so close. It was like a personal cubicle just for us. But as soon as another person used it, the cubicle felt a little bit TOO personal for my liking, no airblade, just paper towels- bit odd. As far as the 'straunt goes- nice 'dos. Greasy tables and stiff front door though. Unique tiling on the floor and also (what must be a first for me) the sauces and cutlery were SEPARATE to the soft drinks and yoghurt machine, haven't made my mind up about that design- 6/10

HOST: Barbara. WOUCH, a petite, mediterranean looking fox- what a flirt. She gave me 2 stamps "just this once" and winked at me. If I wasn't doing the Nando's challenge, I would definitely return just to see her. But, unless she gets a transfer to another Nando's that I have not visited, I will never see her again- 9/10

FOOD: Beanie pitta arrived after 15 minutes. WRONG. I ordered the beanie WRAP so I sent it back. Luckily I had half a chicken to vanquish as I waited. It was a stunner, a real 10/10 chicken supermodel. Loads of sauce and boiling hot. Stayed hot even until the last bite. Then my pathetic looking beanie wrap arrived. It looked sad and deflated and the ends hadn't even been tucked in. The pineapple was cold, the wrap was cold, there was no spice, there was no chilli jam. The flavour of the bean burger would have *bean* nice if they had put any sort of love and care into the preparation. A terrible, terrible sandwich, especially for SEVEN POUNDS AND FIVE PEE. I would give it 0/10 and I guess it serves me right for going vegetarian. So averaging it out we get a mean of 5/10
