We expected a wait but the issue was, we ordered a takeaway wrap and when we opened it there was a hair in it. Really disappointed. Not had a bad visit to Nandos but tonight I felt the staff couldn’t really cope.

This store at the entrance to Salford Quays Outlet shopping is down below the shopping precinct out on the plaza it shares with the Lowry museum and auditorium over looked from across the dock by the towering BBC northern hub filled with the numerous bbc luvies disposed from their former London home a banished to the north. No doubt they console themselves with this Nandos.

After watching the film Dad's Army, and had a good laugh at the Vue Cinema, 4 of us decided to have something to eat. Nando at Salford Quays was our choice. It was only walking distance from the cinema. The restaurant is right next to the river over look the bright light of the Media City. Parking was free for 3 hours at the Salford Quay.

This relatively new Nando's is the closest one to Old Trafford and was understandably packed ahead of the FA Cup quarter-final. Our group of 5 had to wait around 20 minutes before being seated and ordering some peri-peri goodness.

This Nando's looks great. There is plenty of natural light and the walls are nicely done. A large red heart greets you as you walk into the toilets too.

I feel bad putting a negative review on the site for this restaurant as they were very very polite... it was a Christmas lunch trip, and it was at Media City so absolutely rammed...
They'd warned us there would be delays and I put my order in just before the big group arrived, however the big issue came when the fire alarm went off - NOT THEIR FAULT... the building above...

After deciding it was too far to travel from Piccadilly to MediaCity in a lunch hour for a trip to this Nandos, a weekend visit was pencilled in to give the other of Manchesters new Nandos a whirl.

After spending the day watching Shrewsbury get smashed by Preston a little detour via Salford to cheer me mate up was in order... I'm not sure it worked though...

Being in Salford Quays, this Nando's is just a minute or two walk from the BBC/ITV buildings, The Lowry and the Imperial War Museum North. Old Trafford is just a few extra minutes walk away too.

MediaCityUK also has its own tram stop (which is just a few paces from The Lowry), so it's very accessible..

Wow! We went here for the 'practice day' - and what can I say! This is defiantly one of the best looking Nandos around!
The staff were amazing, and it was nice to see the managers coming over to tables and welcoming their customers...Food took a little while to come out- but the staff were still practicing - so its understandable.

All in all, a great experience and we will be visiting again now it is open!
