Another trip to the local Nandos, and it did not disappoint. I took a work colleague who had yet to sample the Nandos delights, and what a good choice this restaurant was!

Walked in, and were greeted with a warm welcome, and quickly shown to a table, again getting a choice of where we wished to sit. This time I wasn't offered a booth, so they managed to escape a repeat of last time, offering a table which wasn't available. The usual "have you been to Nandos before" was greeted with a "I have, but he hasn't", and the server explained the menu and how Nandos works in great Nandostic detail. We hadn't had time to browse the menu, and the server was back, with a plate of chicken wings to each different spice. A fantastic touch that I had never seen in a Nandos before, and really appreciated by my Nandos virgin workmate.

After much chewing we ordered our mains, and collected the cutlery, returning to our table (which wasn't a booth). We were both served fairly quickly, negotiating the ordering process with much ease and creating a good impression for my workmate. The food arrived within 10 minutes of ordering, and it did not dissappoint. My burger was covered in spice, making it juicy as ever. The bread was warm and soft, with cold and crisp salad, and spicy spicy rice. A very good meal which was enjoyed much more than most other Nandos that have been consumed here.

Upon finishing the meal, the server came back, and was very excited to hear that my work colleague had really enjoyed his first ever Nandos expire next, and had that cherry popped. We were offered cakes for after, however these were declined as we had to get back to the grind, and too much enjoyment would be a protential nightmare for those we work with.

The resturaunt was clean and tidy, and did not dissappoint. The decor added to the atmosphere, and the music was clucking. Located nearby is Oxford Road, full of buses and a car park next door, so very easy to reach this outlet.

Overall, a good trip to this Nandos. Would highly reccomend for any Nandos virgins who need walking through the Nandos experience, or just fancy a good Nandos, this is the Manchester place to be.
