The service was exceptional, the supervisor Pal was so friendly and made our family feel very welcome and happy. Thanks to her and the other staff again.

Our server was Anjali. Although our food was late Anjali apologised for the delay. The service she provided was excellent and made sure to check on our food few times. The food was hot and we enjoyed our visit.

Reading Gateway Nando's is easily accessible and has free parking right outside in the retail park. There are four or five tables outside and our timing was good for a pleasant meal outside with the sun peeping in and out of the clouds throughout.

I had a fantastic nap on the way to this Nando's, so by the time I woke up, Daddy had already ordered the food and a Nando's fix was on the way!

I enjoyed the high chair, which was of a good quality and had an excellent space for me to put all my food within easy reach. I went for the garlic BBQ chicken with corn and chips from the Nandino menu, but my plain wrap and Mummy's rice were actually my favourites!

This Nando's is on the newer part of The Gate retail park. The main retail park is in the shadow of the Madejski Stadium (where the B&Q is) - but this Nando's is on Imperial Way, down the A33 a little more towards the M4. With the Madejski very close, there is a restriction on parking on match days - where customers can only park, for free, for 90 minutes. The rest of the time there is 2 hours free parking.
