good food and service

Seated quickly, food was good although when serving did ask that was everything which is was not. Server went straight back to the kitchen and resolved missing items.

I've been to many a Nando and must say this was very average compared to the others I have been. The chicken didnt have as much meat as other restaurants I have been and the chips tasted a little stale. It was quite late I went and thought to myself this might be the leftover food they're trying to get... More

Nandos chicken as great as ever but the recent make over of this restaurant has killed its appeal, badly thought out, unpleasant to sit in and now twice as noisy. Sack the designer and go back to how it was before. No longer an enjoyable place to go with the family

I eat a lot of Nando's - At least 4 a week; however, Reading always seems too busy and cramped, and it takes ages for food to come out. Also, the chicken is always overcooked. Still tastes good, but there are better ones out there!

It what you would expect from a Nando's. Foods good service is good. It quick and easy unless you have to wait a while to get seated but worth the wait. They got my order incorrect once and sorted it out quickly and I had a new meal in front of me within 5-10 minutes.

This time I had the lemon and herb marinade. It was a nice change from the spicy. You could really enjoy the flavour. Good service and and a nice atmosphere

Good for families and if you like chicken. Went in a group with various ages. Everyone found something they liked.

has been refurbished, not for the better, whilst the food is of a good standard for what you pay be prepared to be sitting too close to other people, having your coat knocked off your chair several times as people squeeze past, and the noise!! if you wear a hearing aid turn it off. May go back in a while... More

What is there to say, it never lets you down and without it my teenagers would be lost? At least you know they are having fresh grilled chicken. And for me, medium chicken or chicken livers with a side of spicy beans or peas and a salad, what is there not to like about it?
