There's parking in the biggest two car parks: Podium Car Park £3/up to 2hrs, £4/3hrs, £5/4hrs and £10/4+hrs and £2 evening (after 5pm) or Multi-storey Car Park £2.50/2hrs, £3.50/3hrs, £4.20/4hrs and £5/4+hrs with a £1 evening charge (after 5pm). Otherwise if you want to spend something in IKEA, you get free parking in there or head for the short stay which (if you can get space) is free/30mins, £1/1hr, £2/2hrs and up from there and is just a very short walk to the new Nando's.

Visited late afternoon for bite to eat before going to the cinema. Staff were very friendly and helpful. As I have Coeliac disease and am strictly Gluten Free I have to be careful in what I choose. Very pleased that I could actually have chips with my butterfly chicken, along with slaw (most eateries are unable to provide safe gluten free chips). Good to see that the staff were very aware and informed about this condition. Will certainly recommend to other Coeliac's.

The new Nando's in town is beautifully decorated, the staff are ON IT! None of the staff are just stood chatting like most places. Toilets were very clean and vibrantly decorated just like the main floor of the restaurant.
Sonia, who served me at the till was very friendly and smiley and genuinely cared about the service she provided. Very polite and kind to others.

The floor supervisor treated every customer with the same respect from toddler to adult. Amazing to see.

Stopped into this Nando's late afternoon... and got up to the Food Court inside the West Quay Shopping Centre before I realised I'd been there before and was in the wrong Nando's... The new Nando's is outside of the West quay Shopping Centre in a new extension - just go to the big M&S and the entrance to get into the new Nando's is there. Use the post code SO15 1QF as the new one isn't recognised by Google yet.

This new store in Southampton is in the leisure extension of West Quay shopping centre where there is already a Nandos in the food court. Reminiscent of Metro centre in Gateshead where 2 Nandos are so close, and this is in addition to the quite close Guildhall Quarter Store which opened last year. This store is far better than the other West Quay store in every way.
