So, it was whilst we were in Oxford Road we decided that three Nando's would now become four and we added this one in as Elliott has not been here. Jumped on a tram outside the central library, which was amazing to say the least and for £4.00 return we went down to east didsbury. It was only a twenty minute journey but it was great to ride the tram.

Exit right, cross the road and you'll see a cinema complex, bowling and a few restaurants and bars, Nando's squished in between frankie and benny's and I don't remember what's on the other side tbh. Plenty of seats in the front so we picked table two as everyone else was sat in the back. Clever, I keep forgetting it's not summer time.

Claimed my red reward, chicken wrap mango and lime with creamy mash and garlic bread, and experienced the first few signs of me being full. Never say never but it might be a while before I do four Nando's in one day again. It all took about fifteen minutes to arrive. Half the wrap was dry whilst the other was saucy, this was without the yoghurt, chilli jam and lettuce and with a slice of halloumi. The wrap itself had peppers in it and was a darker colour than I've normally seen, is this branch using a different supplier?

The staff didn't come over to check whether the food was okay, and didn't come to collect the plates despite seeing that we were finished. The toilets were okay, they even had towels for hand drying which is very rare. It was a nice branch, a little out of the way compared to other branches in Manchester but worth the visit. We were lucky it was quiet but I guess on a weds or Friday night the service is probably not the same.
