First of four Nando's of the day, we rocked up literally as the restaurant opened at eleven thirty. Therefore they had no reason to delay the food as there was no queue, unless they hadn't fired up all the cookers yet. One quid bus ride from Piccadilly, with many options of buses to get there, it's a pleasant ride and much cheaper to get to than any London branch.

Entered the outlet, and was seated immediately at the back, in a booth. I arrived at 1130 exactly, which was unplanned, but is the opening time for this outlet. After a short while pondering the menu, wondering what chicken combination to have, I went to the till to place my order. The Nandoca navigated the order with ease, which included redeeming some illusive Peri-Peri rewards which had started racking up on my card.

This store in Fallowfield close to the Sainsburys and with it's own small free parking space in front of the store, large front windows and a number of tables and chairs out the front on the pavement. There are flats immediately above the store and I don't know how they appreciate the punters smoking out front, I didn't enjoy having to walk through them.

Food took 35 minutes to come which was disappointing but at least it was above average when it did! Swings and roundabouts!

A nice restaurant in the heart of Fallowfield. Popular with students the Chicken Caesar Salad came with a generous amount of chicken. Service was nice.

Parking; The front car park has three/ four parking spaces which is sometimes stretched to 5/6 if people get really cosy. Generally thrres only a maximum of one space regardless of the time of day. The besg parking is at The adjacent Sainsburys, so you park there, walk through Sainsburys and into Nandos

Seating: In the day they are always very accomodating, I even have a seat they give me at lunch every week. Even at night they try their best to accomodate.

Tired of seeing the non-stop exhibition football played at St. Andrews, I happened to go to Old Trafford on Boxing Day and watch a very average game of football - only 5 goals... Give me a dull 0-0 any day... :-/

Problem with parking
Right outside but only four spaces
You can easily get blocked in because it's very tight
Park at Sainsbury's next door myself

Very near a pub for good footy watching, also not too far from the uni which is v appealing to all the students. Very happy with my nandos experience there, and have always enjoyed it there. Would go back. Nice staff too.

In a good location. Convenient for University of Manchester students who are in halls nearby.
Service on this day was poor as food for the 4 members of the group arrived in stages. For big groups, it is understandable but there were only 4 of us!
