Nearby: 
This Nando's is located in the Cornerhouse complex (by the Royal Theatre) and is also just a couple minutes walk from the other City Centre branch in the Market Square/Place. This means it's very easy to get to by train (Nottingham train station is half a mile walk away) and tram - and also within a 10 minute (max) walk from most car parks. The Castle and the caves are also a few minutes walk away. A Cineworld is located inside the Cornerhouse complex also.
Parking: 
Parking by the Castle (in one of many parking bays I.e. on Castle Boulevard) is cheaper than most multi-storey car parks. For example, here parking on Sunday is only £1 for the first two hours and then 25p for every half hour afterwards. An weekday evening charge from 8pm-8am Monday-Saturday is a flat £1. All of these bays are pay and display and allow payment by phone. Multi-storey car parks within the city include Broadmarsh, Trinity Square and St James Street. The evening rate and hourly charges vary so check before you go - but can be quite expensive (I.e. St James is £4/2hrs, £6/4hrs charged 24/7).

It was a cold Saturday night in Nottingham and Cornerhouse Nando's was just a 15-minute walk from our hotel, so the third Nando's in the city was about to be ticked off. We were seated on a small table near the entrance straight away, while other groups of 3 or more were told anything from 10 up to 25 minutes.

Our family of 4 comes here at least 2-3 times a week and this restaraunt is outstanding. I've visited many nandos across the country bug none are better than this. I eat extra hot grilled chicken pitta with peri chips, spicy rice and coke. This is excellent and is my standard order , but sometimes I try some new menu items and they were great too.

I had chicken wraps which we mainly just lettuce, I paid £11 for two pieces of chicken and lettuce! Had someone come to me and asked if my meal was okay I would have complained then but they were all busy, can honestly say I'll never eat there again

great place to eat, especially (and surprisingly) for people with allergies, though unfortunately my dairy intollerance has been hard hit recently due to Nandos, as I tend to watch my food being prepared I didnt see a separate area for cooking the no-dairy options and no separate utensils, this seems to be the same with all nandos I've been to (quite a few in the east midlands at least) and it's very worrying, my Mother and sister also have dairy intollerances and it makes me wary to recommen

Nandos is one of the only restaurants I have visited and NEVER had a bad experience with the food (touch wood). It has always been delicious and hot, and my husband and I visit Nandos when we can. We generally consider other restaurants, but end up at Nandos, because it really is great. I don't even have the chicken the majority of the time, I have the portebello mushroom wrap or burger. It is my favourite thing on the menu, other than the halloumi of course!

First time I have been since refurbishment, I did like the old layout but this seems nice and cosy and Im sure ill get used to it the more I go :) I ordered the holumi cheese for the first time which was very nice, though I did wait a while for it.

After a half-marathon in Derbyshire - what better way to round the weekend off than a Nando's in the only Midlands branch I hadn't yet been to!

Situated in the town centre, near a cinema and other food businesses. Parking is close but not the cheapest with it being the town centre everywhere is around the same price. I was impressed by the portion size but found my food got cold very quickly. From my seat i could see the kitchen and found my food was sat on the side for a good 5 minutes before it was brought over.

Extremeley ideal as there is a cinema next door and the city centre a short couple of minutes away.
Got on the nando's hype after hearing a song by example and ed sheeran called "nando's skank"

Nottingham Cornerhouse Nando's was the 32nd Nando's to open in the UK, and Leicester's very first.

Situated along the side of the pretty central Cornerhouse cinema complex, it's in a good location for shoppers, or possiblt pre-clubbing.

We arrived pretty hungry on a Sunday afternoon, and were shown a table right away, albeit with a lack of chicken on a stick.

Cinema and casino right there. In the centre of town. Free parking (at night) about 10min away. Taxi rank right outside.
