As soon as I step through the doors of this establishment I am transported to a unique dining environment, of which some restaurants desperately try to replicate but fail. While waiting to be seated, I can instantly see that everyone is happy and united under one roof for their love of Nandos' chicken. I was made to feel incredibly welcome and was even treated as an old friend, a rarity and forgotten trait in some eateries. Once seated I immediately decided on a whole chicken with two sides of rice and a side of chips.

I was expecting the food to take a while, as it was a bank holiday and busy, but I was pleasantly surprised when no sooner a conversation had started my food was placed in front of me. The conversation was promptly replaced by silence, save the occasional 'this is lovely', while I ate my meal. The chicken was cooked perfectly and I had a very satisfying experience, of which is a primary factor when I decide where to eat in the future. From the great atmosphere through to the fantastic staff and of course the food, Nandos Poole is a recommended experience for all.

With regards to the surrounding peri-meter (couldn't resist a pun) you have the cinema, which is a short waddle away, an indoor water park, bowling alley and arcade. I have been to several branches of Nandos, including Southampton, Eastleigh and London, but this is by far the best in my opinion. As I write this review, I am enjoying some homecooked chicken with Nandos' seasoning. Keep up the great work Nandos Poole!
