Additional Comments - This will make you stand out in the competition! Unique aspects? Student discounts? Parking tips?: 

Our second Nando's of the day, just 2 hours after our first! The reason for this is we found ourselves in a city with 5 Nando's, which we definitely won't be returning to for a while. We therefore might as well make the most of it...

This Nando's was in a nice Eastern suburb of Windhoek, and like the previous Nando's in Olympia, had parking right outside. It was however a lot busier than the previous one, and we took the last table on the rather sunny outside terrace. The weather had heated up slightly, so the table being half in the sun wasn't ideal.

Staff score quite low for this visit unfortunately due to a couple of things. One is that a Nandoca wanted to serve us at the table, but I had already gone to order at the till; apparently she was then quite rude to my wife and walked off in a huff. The second was that the woman on the till couldn't find the option to give me a chicken wrap without a side. The manager came over and tried to find it, couldn't, and then wandered off again. The Nandoca then looked rather lost and told me I should just buy a side to solve the situation. I insisted I didn't want one! After a few minutes the manager came back and they tried another till and got it working.

As for the food, it was very nice and an improvement over the rather small quarter chicken I had had two hours prior. I went for a chicken strips and rice meal, with extra feta cheese on top. I'm not sure it was real feta, but it was tossed nicely in the sauce and went perfectly with the chicken and rice. The sauce itself was a new flavour they recently introduced in Southern Africa called Mozam Paprika; a medium spiced sauce with delicious smokey paprika - something they should introduce in the UK!
