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

I walked up to this outlet, and noticed one thing straight away. The external sign is black, rather than the standard red, and doesn't illuminate. It is on a dark blue background, which makes it quite difficult to see.

We entered, and the Nandoca gave us free reign of the not very busy outlet, so we chose to sit at Table 2, which is on the left hand side near the door. Again a short ponder of the menu existed, before going to place my order. I decided to use my orange reward, and this was easily negotiated by the Nandoca. I also purchased a Rubro drink.

The meal arrived after over 10 minutes, and looked a little tired. I ordered a chicken wrap Mango and Lime, and the tortilla wrap was quite broken up, with lots of crumbs on the plate. The chicken was also a little dry, but the lettuce was moist. Unfortunately, the smothering of chilli jam was rather overpowering, and towards the end, this is all I could taste. Not a great experience with my first wrap! The Rubro drink was interesting, and not what I was expecting. It's certinally an aquired taste.

The outlet is a long and relatively thin arrangement, with the till and grill on the right hand side, taking up half of this wall, with seats against the other half of the right hand wall. There are tables against the left hand wall, and some running along the centre next to the grill, separated by a wood partition. The cutlery and sauce point is located on the left, towards the entrance. The toilets are located at the rear.

The 3 for decoration and cleanliness is mainly in relation to the male toilets. There was tissue all over the floor, and the toilet was out of use, with a black bag pulled over it. I wasn't impressed with this aspect at all. The main outket appeared clean, and the decoration was quite good, with plenty of art work around the walls.

This outlet is located on the Parrs Wood entertainment strip. It is inbetween lots of other resturaunts, which lead towards a bowling alley and Cineworld. I didn't see any parking on the front, however there is a big Tesco over the road. It can also be easily reached by tram, train, or bus from Manchester, as the three stations are all within walking distance.
