Comments - Stand out in our monthly competition! What did you eat? Unique aspects? Parking/transport tips?: 

Located on Orbital Shopping Park, just north of the town centre. There over 1000 free car park spaces. Those nearest to Nando’s will be in the Asda car park section which has a 5 hour parking limit. The nearest train station is Swindon, a 3 mike walk away.

Stopped here late in the afternoon and was greeted with an almost empty restaurant. It’s definitely one of the best decorated Nando’s around - easily in the top ten.

Outside there is space for plenty of table sets. Inside there are three distinct sections: upstairs by the entrance, downstairs on the ground and then up on the mezzanine floor at the back. Each section has booths and table/chair sets - with the ground section having the best seating with circular booths surrounded by large wooden angled structures. There are large canvas paintings when you enter, lots of orange covering the till/serving hatch, the ceiling is completely covered in yellow and other patterned designs and many different lampshade designs. Toilets are also very orange and clean.

I went for the sunset burger and it was the tastiest meal I’ve had for a while. The thigh fillets were chunky and smothered in sauce, the cheese was melted just right and the chutney covered the burger and more. The chip portion was above average size and were all crispy and fluffy inside. It also came in only four minutes!

Staff were pleasant enough but doing as expected.

Called in for lunch today. Good nandos. Only issue was the froyo machine wasn't working! Booths with power for laptop awesome!
