In my opinion Nando's in Chambers Street is the best one in Edinburgh. It's not too big, but also spacious. The staff are always attentive and friendly. Wide range of chicken dishes and sauces on the menu. Vegetarian options available also. They do a great Caesar salad. They also offer unlimited soft drinks for students.

We visited this restaurant last week for a work party - there were around 50 of us and we had the whole upstairs to ourselves which was brilliant, I hadn't realised they could accommodate such large bookings! The staff were all fantastic, really friendly and helpful with those of us who hadn't been before. The food came out really quickly... More

Visited for lunch in early April. No staff to greet us when we arrived, there were a few empty tables dotted around so we just showed ourselves to a table. The lady who served us was friendly and took the order well but would not accept my English Nando's Loyalty Card, I had to sign up for a new one... More

V disappointing- especially for the psrices they charge. THe restaurant is cold and dirty, sticky tales, decor shabby. Slow service although the staff seem to work hard, Chips were cold and dry, Don't waste your money.

The whole place feels cold and unwelcoming although to be fair this appears not to be the fault of the staff but that of a company that has lived off the hype of times gone bye Simply put Nandos is a South African version of KFC

Having never been in nandos, I thought I would give it a try and really wish I hadn't , the food was awfull and overpriced for what you got, no table service and collect your own cutlery and go back to till to order, I have had better meals in supermarket cafes at less than half the price we paid...

Big fan of Nandos, used to go there for lunch every Saturday with work friends but hadn't been in a while. Decided to test out the one on Chambers Street. Arrived to find the place half full so plenty of seats. On going up to order, we were told food would be about 25 minutes as they were "so busy".... More
