Good

The food is good. We went early for lunch so the service was good/quick as it was not too busy but half an hour later it was packed. Good choice of food at a reasonable price.

Called in to feed a grumpy one year old as it was a Wednesday lunchtime it wasn't overly busy. Sat and ordered quickly, food arrived in good time (a chicken burger and a couple of side dishes) chicken was dry, chewy and very overcooked, chips and sides cold. I asked a member of staff if it could be redone as... More

Simple cooked, peri-peri chicken. A little over average pricing for what it is but hardly expensive. Always busy as it serves the curren craze for chicken amongst kids. Service always okay. Not much else to say about it. If you need chicken then by all means go, but don't rush there expecting anything special.

The food and pricing is very good. Sometimes the service can be a smidge slow. But on balance, Nando's is a go-to favorite of mine.

A Nando's is a Nandos right? Not so much food and drink wise this was as good as any. Well cooked, well flavourd chicken, nice spicy rice and a beer. All good. However, the restaurant was busy and loud. The order point had a big queue and what varied between 2 and 4 people taking orders. One of them took... More

Ordering is a bit different but the food is good. To us what is really special is the selection of hot sauces, with the hottest having some real heat to it.

I really can't be very subjective. I went on a neutral hour (of peak) and the service was good. I don't care for the food though although my husband does. I prefer more quality food and this is not. The quality of the chicken is more like a fast food chicken. I took a chicken burger and I ate only... More

Normally every Nando's that I have visited has been pretty standard in format, service and food quality, except Reading! There were 11 of us, which granted is a large amount, but when it takes nearly 15 minutes to place the actual order with the server, you know it's going to be one of those days! Our food all came with... More

Visited here recently and was really disappointed by the experience. The service was terrible, we were shown to a table and that was it! as it was a first time visit to Nandos we didn't know we had to order at the 'Mcdonalds style checkout' and your food is brought to you.. It seems there was at least two other... More

£20 for a platter of cheap frozen chips, bulk bought coleslaw, one whole corn on the cob on 2 person share board, tasteless doughy garlic bread and a few bits of chicken! Felt completely riped off! No wonder they make you pay when you order - no need to check back! Needless to say my first visit to Nando's will... More
