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

Parking was less than a one minute walk and free on a Saturday night although I have been reassured that we were lucky on this particular Saturday night!

Even though the branch was almost full, we were seated very quickly. One comment to make is that the queue to order was rather long but another member of staff soon opened up a second till and the problem was solved.

Surprisingly, the food arrived in the reverse order of when it was ordered which caused a slight problem as I had my peri chips around 5 minutes before my half chicken (which had been ordered separately). When all the food did arrive, however, it was of an excellent standard. Chicken dripping in sauce and very plentiful. I struggled to finish off my meal and felt overly satisfied when I finally managed it.

The branch is located on a corner and looks very impressive from the outside but the interior is rather standard.

All in all, a good Nando's to visit especially during peak hours!
