Stirling Nando's has to go down as one of my favourite branches. It has been a while since I visited so some of the details are lost to me, but I'll try and mention everything I can remember.

Firstly the branch is situated by a big cinema and a few other restaurants, with a huge car park (which I think was free). The exterior is fairly nice compared with other branches on high streets and in town centres, I think there was outdoor seating and it was quite a clean, friendly area.

The inside of the branch was well designed, clean and interesting - there was a variety of seating and decorations, with semi-circular booths for groups of cinema-going friends. The atmosphere was friendly, and the staff especially were helpful and accommodating. Be sure to ask them if they do a student discount, I can't remember if they do but it's always worth a try!

The food was top class, I had a half chicken medium with peri chips and it was cooked expertly, with lots of sauce and plenty of peri on the chips. I'm not sure if there was anything that could really have improved the food, it was certainly one of the best Nando's I've had.

All in all an exceptional branch, made particularly good by the quality of staff and food. The wait for food was quite a while as I remember, but could certainly be forgiven for such a delicious meal.
