Queues are absolutely dreadful.
I was waiting for a solid 30 minutes whilst a young fellow was on the phone. My chicken got a abused with a meat hammer, beaten to a pulp, which resulted in 2 flat chicken breast. Breast I tell you! I’d rather have two normal sized chicken breasts than chicken frizbies. Chips were nice though so well done!

We ordered the veg burger with sweetcorn and peri chips - he loves the sweetcorn. And the chicken wrap with chips and coleslaw, Did receive the burger but wasn't worth complaining about. All food seemed tidy and cooked well on the plate.

Waiting was about average so wasn't too concerned about this.

He ordered extra hot but found it pretty weak this time - normally very spicy for him and mine was medium and fine.

Having spent the night working as a football interpreter in Liverpool, I fancied a lunch trip to a Nando's which I had never previously visited and given the train takes only 20 minutes from Liverpool Lime Street to St Helens Centre, it was an easy decision to make. The restaurant is around a 10-minute walk from the station and immediately catches the eye as it stands alone on a roundabout with particularly eye-catching décor.

Stopped in on this Nando's on my way back to Birmingham and had a delightful experience from start to finish.

It's located on St Helens Leisure Park, which is also around other retail parks, so large shops like The Range, Asda and Tescos are here, as well as Queens Park Health and Fitness - and also a Cineworld. The Citadel Arts Centre is right by it too.

I rang up and ordered my Nando's to pick up, the lady told me it would be 30 mins so I arrived exactly 30 mins later. They had me standing there for over an hour, people where coming in and ordering food and they got theirs before me! Not happy!

This store is close to the heart of town attached to a Cineworld cinema, Weatherspoons pub and Pizza Hut, its also near the Citadel arts centre, St Helens college and the Range shop. Parking is quite easy as there is a small car park behind the cinema for the use of the 4 conjoined businesses, but further to this is the large St Helens college car park which is free and open for use between 6pm and 3am on school days and between 10am and 3am during school holidays.
