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

2nd Nando's of the day and I had planned to have something small to make way for the third which is to follow after this review...

Managed to drag along three of the guys from the reviewer dinner, Elliott, Pompey and Eduardo who it was really nice to meet, although Pompey was already heading this way we made it a group thing. Got there quarter to three and were seated straight away but the restaurant was very busy, people also being seated upstairs.

Went to order, less than five minute wait but the girl used my green reward without asking me which screwed up my ordering. She felt really bad afterwards and I told her it's okay but inside I was angry!

Again a fifteen minute wait for the food, quarter chicken mango and lime with sweet mash, the mash was warm and very chunky. The chicken was cooked well, again warm and not a lot of sauce but it wasn't dry which was great. I also had the caramel cheesecake to make up to get my chilli and I had to ask for that two times to be brought over. Luckily we were given a table right next to the sauces and cutlery which is at the centre of the restaurant so that was really convenient. What is odd is that the drinks machine is separate and a little further inside the restaurant so refilling drinks is a little more tedious.

Some annoying kids at the table next to us nearly ruined the meal but the company was great and the food was okay. The toilets are all the way upstairs which is slightly annoying but at least it is not the shared mall toilets in the Arndale centre.
