Nandos is our go-to for a casual lunch. $30 for a whole chicken and two sides is what we order. Not expensive and it's just right for portion sizes for 2-2.5 people. The mango and lime seasoning is yum. A change from lemon and herb. Add staff who care, you'll have a great food option to fall back on

As always, excellent fare in Nandos. Good service, good food........a pleasant surprise here was that we got a discount upon showing our room key-card from the nearby Brady hotel.

Got a chicken for two with two large sides for around $30. Was huge! Great value. Sat upstairs, was quiet and we enjoyed having a beer with our meal. Quick, efficient service. Will definitely come again when I am in Melbourne again :)

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Nando's after a long day walking around Melbourne on a cool spring day. The extra hot chicken was very good, we also enjoyed the spicy rice and fries.

What special about the taste here is the chilli. They give some choices of chilli. The barbeque chicken itself just ok. Nothing so special. Side dishes vary as usual like corn, mashed potato, beans, rice. Worth a try as they are everywhere in Melbourne ☺

Good food at great prices. All chicken, but they have different preparations. I could eat their wraps everyday. The beauty is that you can have it cooked in different ways: with lemon or just hot and so on. If you are looking or a quick, good and healthy meal, then try this.

The woman, Debbie was very nice. The nandos taste was it's usual best but I would go here just because of her. Listened and just really cared.

I used to frequent this place till now for the last 4 years after my unidays. They still maintain the food quality... ASk for spicy dip sauce with a mild chicken grilled thats the best combo. Please avoid the chips and go for the salads Cheers mates...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
