i had the spiciest spice on my chicken burger with some chips and mash and it was exquisite. i enjoyed every second of it, there was free refills of drinks and the experience was just the best i would recommend this place to anyone.

Greeted and seated straight away.
Ordering was easy though the guy was a bit dippy.

Someone cocked up because when the girl brought the wrong food over, she asked me if I was sure it was incorrect. Saw her then take my food to another table which they rejected. Then took her an extra five minutes to work out which food was mine but that was 20 in total til it came to me.

This Nandos is close to the centre of Oxford and very near the coach station holding a corner place on a busy intersection.

Parking will be a problem in the centre as the misguided council of Oxford are very car hating and have deluded ideas of transport, I parked for free on a residential street on the outskirts and got the bus in.

Pretty quick service, chicken was lovely as usual. I had half a chicken, mash and chips. Very close to the centre of Oxford, with a car park across the road. Fairly small and usually quite busy but this time there were a lot of tables available!

The car park across the road is quite expensive 24-7. As Rhona has a blue badge, we parked on-street and trundled in using her wheelchair. The only level access doorway is up a cobbled street which is somewhat uncomfortable in a chair but worth it to get a Nando's.

We loved the main lighting which is formed out of (empty!) sauce bottles each of which has a light in it.

Good food as we'd expect and friendly staff who loved the roses...

I don't remember having to wait for a table in quite a while but this was no problem on what was a very enjoyable Saturday afternoon spent in Nando's. I introduced some foreign members of staff at the summer camp where I've been working to Nando's for the first time and the other Brits were of course well accustomed to the peri peri chili.

Amazing staff and service, served by a trainee too, very attentive but not invasive staff. One of my favourite branches.

First time to Oxford for a few years so had forgotten about the one-way system throughout the town and campusses... Still, if you just follow the parking signs for "Central Areas" you'll eventually pop out at Worcester Street car park and this Nando's is right next to it. I think the parking tarriffs apply from 8am-8pm. I got here at around 7:35pm so had to pay £3.10... but I think for three hours it's only £4 or so anyway.

Nandos in Oxford is the perfect balance between fine dining and cheap and cheerful! It is very popular yet I have never had to wait for more then 15 minutes for a table. The Staff greet you at the door were there are comfy sofas you can sit on if you do have to wait, It is perfect if your a student, especially for a quality inexpensive date, I have even taken my parents there and they also loved it!

Took a long time to queue but service was quick. parking lot outside but extremely expensive which is typical for Oxford. No free parking for weekend. Well located and easy to find.

The staff would not let our friends sit with us which was hugely distressing and severely damaged the overall Nando's experience.
There is a car park opposite but not sure how expensive it is.
