Comments - Stand out in our monthly competition! What did you eat? Unique aspects? Parking/transport tips?: 

This is located in the White Rose Shopping centre - about a mile off the motorway. Hundreds (if not thousands) of free parking spaces. Nice shopping centre too - with plenty of big name shops (M&S, Debenhams, Sainsbury's) and plenty of other eateries too.

Arrived at about 7pm and there was no wait to be seated. Of the 30 tables or so, maybe 25 were occupied. With it being inside a shopping centre... there's technically no oustide seating, but about a dozen of these tables were outside of Nando's which almost spilled into the communal seating for the other food joints. Get inside if you can!

Even with it being pretty full, there was no wait to order and about a 12 minute wait for the food... which was delicious!! It really was!! I was using my Full Platter voucher courtesy of the Rate YOUR Nando's team - and I received two sets of big, succulent, moist, well cooked breasts covered in sauce - and equally good legs. A huge portion of rice and chips too which were as good as any I've ever had!!

The reastaurant itself was nicely decorated. Pretty small (and one wall completely vacant as it looked out into the shopping centre), but Nando's have made the most of the space they have. Nice artwork on the right wall as you enter (all different shapes and sizes), with two large three tier chandelier style lights dominating the ceiling/centre making it very bright. There's also five or so wooden booths at the back of the restaurant (that seat four people) with large lampshades that hang right down to the tables. Great sauce and wine displays - and plenty more wood panelling and plants, pots and other decorations around... the toilets were spotless and had Dyson handdryers too!

The staff were also very, very friendly. There seemed to be an abundance of people on duty and they all made sure everyone was happy, laughing and joking with each set of people that came in. Properly showing the Yorkshire banter!
