Wakefield - Elliott Review
This Nando's is currently Number 5 in the UK, and I can certainly see why.
Arrived, and was greeted by a friendly Nandoca who asked where we wished to sit. They hadn't been open long, and the outlet was empty, so we had a pick over the entire outlet. After a quick look over the menu, I headed off to place my order. Again, I was served by another friendly and helpful Nandoca, who took my order. I ended up redeeming my red reward so my entire meal was free! After this, I returned to my table.
This outlet is in four distinctive parts. As you enter, you are greeted by the main seating area, which mainly contains normal tables and chairs with a few booths set back in to the left hand wall. The second area is the till and grill, which is on the rear right wall. The third is a small seating area with 5 tables, and is next to the window and door (although separated by a screen). The fourth area is a slightly raised section at the back of the outlet. Toilets are also at the rear, and were very clean. There is a lot of Nando's art on the walls, including a Barci imprint on one of the walls. Staff were also great, with one checking if I was OK as I ended up being a little unwell on arrival!
The food arrived after 8 minutes, and it was very very good. I ordered chicken wrap mango and lime with peri-chips and salad. The wrap was toasty warm, with plenty of peri-sauce and just enough peri-jam to not be overpowering. The chips were smothered in so much peri-salt there was plenty left at the end. The chips were also nice and fluffy. The salad was equally enjoyable, crispy and fresh.
This outlet is located in the Westgate leisure park in Wakefield. Next to this outlet is Cineworld Cinemas, and Frankie and Bennys along with a Pizza Hut and Subway drive-through. There is plenty of free parking outside the outlet, however for those arriving by public transport, it is a 15 minute walk from the railway station and there are a number of buses passing close by.
Overall this is an excellent little outlet tucked in a corner of the Westgate leisure park. Most definitely worth the trip!
