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

About half an hour after leaving Fallowfield, we were in this branch for what I can describe as breakfast if Fallowfield was brunch.. Were lucky we got there when we did as the students from either Met Uni or Manchester Uni started filling the place up and blocking all exits.

We got there and they maitre'd who may or may not have recognised Elliott gave us a nice booth near the middle of the restaurant. This was lucky as the draft was closed and lucky because I wanted table two as soon as you enter the branch.

A cute young man named Jao took my order, this time a quarter chicken mango and lime with peri chips and garlic bread. The food arrived in fifteen minutes again and was really hot. Generous portion of peri chips and another breast piece, maybe I should have requested a leg. Garlic bread is normally only got with sweet mash so I didn't know why I picked it but it was cooked well, though one size was really small but together they provided a decent package. For a halal Nando's the chicken was really big, a bit too big maybe.

Thiso restaurant is split into three sections, the middle section booths for groups and the back section, I Dunno, but I accidentally gave a chair a backhand as I walked past and now my hand is bruised...

Clean toilets, though there was a group of girls in there having a chat. Clean and tidy drinks section in the middle section, friendly staff, lovely light decorations and an Indian like lantern thing above our table, it gives a nice atmosphere here, apart from bitchy students at the door not moving out the way...
