No
Nearby: 
Located next to an Odeon cinema on the same complex as Stadium MK. It is on the outskirts of the MK town centre and is nearer to Bletchley, which means the nearest train station is either Bletchley or Fenny Stratford (about 1.5 mile walk away). Milton Keynes Central train station is 3 miles away. Bletchley Park is 1.5 miles away too.
Parking: 
Hundreds of free spaces within the leisure complex.

Only came to review to thank the manager. My food was really late as I was not told that there was a delay on wings (even though my friends wings arrived straight away...). After waiting a long time asked where food was, had an apology from staff member. Later the manager came over and apologised and offered to do whatever necessary to rectify. The manager was very polite and deserves recognition for the hospitality so thanks to the manager (just please try to keep to wings on time)

I had a double pita. With a side of peri chips and perinase.

I enjoy being able to tick into a classic meal at nandos with my family and relax. It's very chilled happy enviroment. Allows you to feel comfortable and get stuffed in peace. I always enjoy my time at nandos, regardless of the service. The food is always wonderfull.

Maybe if I had read the information about this branch before I went there, I wouldn't have ended up walking the 3 miles to it out in Bletchley in the heat in the afternoon. An hour and twenty minutes later I arrived to the branch by way of the large Primark they have opposite the MK Dons stadium.

We have 3 children. this was a birthday treat for our 14 yr old daughter and the first time we had eaten out since our youngest was born almost 4 years ago. She has multiple allergies limiting us on what she can eat and avoiding allergic reactions is a daily struggle
We called ahead and the manager assured us we would have help.

This was going to be an evening of firsts for my Nandos experience, despite a different Nandos location (Milton Keynes - Xscape) being much closer to me I decided to head to a new Nandos which I had not visited before at stadium MK. This is a very new Nandos which opened about 6 months ago and I was looking forward to visiting for the first time and seeing what they had to offer. Before arriving at the restaurant I had also decided to try the new Quinoa Salad menu item for the first time.

phone order, was told it would be 25 minutes which was absolutely fine considering we were informed that there was a longer wait and can appreciate it being a weekend so pick up time was 7:03pm, however the food wasn't ready until 7:25pm.

This new leisure park is within the same complex as Stadium MK which means there are hundreds of free spaces within the leisure complex. There are a host of eateries and shops as well as an Odeon cinema. It is on the outskirts of the town centre nearer to Bletchley, which means the nearest train station is either Bletchley or Fenny Stratford (about 1.5 mile walk away) with Milton Keynes Central station being 3 miles away. The fantastic Bletchley Park is 1.5 miles away too.
