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.

Entered the resturaunt and was given a very warm welcome, and showed to a table next to the drinks dispenser, which was an excellent move! The resturaunt is large, and open, arranged in to a mixture of booths and single tables. There are some extravagant light fittings, and lovely Nandos decor.

Ordered food with a helpful till assistant, who navigated my order with much ease. A chicken breast burger with corn and rice was ordered, and I returned to my table.

Meal arrived within 10 minutes, and when tucking in to the Peri-Peri goodness, I was disappointed to find a shard of plastic inside the burger, resting on the lettuce. A quick word with the manager resolved the situation, and a new meal arrived. Much better, and the offer of free dessert was given. The replacement burger was nice and warm, and plastic free. Replacement corn and rice was also provided, which were also tasty. Rice had plenty of kick, and the corn was juicy and not too tough. The dessert was delicious, a wonderful caramel cheesecake. Even better because it was free. Happy customer!

This store is located in MediaCity, next to the Lowry theatre, shopping complex, and Imperial War Museum North. Parking was not seen, however there are plenty of bus and tram services serving the complex. It's surrounded by waterways, hence the name Salford Quays, and is a very short walk from the tram stop, which is how I arrived.
