If you are a chicken lover, you will get one of the good Chicken with peri peri sauce in this place. The is quite crowded in evening but it is a value for money.

Had lunch there today, chicken was quite nice but the medium sauce resembled gluttonous jam and the chips were cold,

We have ordered Chicken Livers and Crispy Portuguese Roll, PERi-PERi Chicken, and Chicken Butterfly which has awesome taste !! Atmosphere was really hot & sitting arrangements have been... More

This is by far the worst Nando's I've been too!! The service is always bad, the chicken is inedible! If in Reading and I fancy a Nando's, I will ALWAYS go to the one in Friar Street.

Diabolical attitude from the staff towards us and other customers, rude and impatient. Food was nice as expected, atmosphere poor.
