Pretty Standard Quality for a Nando's

I am a big fan in England, but here not so much. They did not serve Chicken Butterfly or even garlic bread as a side. In England, these are highly popular items, and I was slightly disappointed as a result. They did however have a nice selection of burgers, which were tasty particularly the limited... read more

We ate the chicken set here, it was good and most important is its Halal for muslim. The staffs are nice & helpful too. The sauce they use is different from the one in Malaysia but I still love it.

We went for a latish dinner. The chicken was great (I had tenderloins and my husband a quarter chicken). I ordered Portuguese rolls and you have to wait a little but they are absolutely delicious. Great for take-out or dine in. Friendly staff.

We went here for lunch, I thought the chicken was average and quite expensive for what you got. Staff were friendly enough but I wouldn't be in a hurry to go back.

My parents, my wife, her friend and I took my son here on the spur of the moment for a meal to celebrate his success in a regional theatre competition. It was a horribly cold night so we asked to sit at the back of the room. The space was a little cramped but our waiter was very obliging (in... More

My partner and I have been to Nandos on several different occasions and the new owner has transformed it into a spectacular experience! We are greeted like old friends as we arrive, the service is prompt and attentive. My favourite is always without a doubt the supremo chicken burger with caramelised onion and cheese, accompanied by the peri peri chips... More

That was the second times we went there and had our lunch. I had new recommended menu Chicken Paella on delicious spicy rice for $13. Requesting for the hot flavor, my meal was absolutely unforgettable. The spice although it was hot, but it doesn't loose the proper flavor. I still enjoyed my meal & fulfilled! Undeniably will come back and... More

I went to Nandos a few years ago when it first opened at this location and found it overpriced and very average. I had heard recently that it had changed hands so we decided to try it again. We were pleasantly surprised. The dining area is very clean and tidy, the staff are friendly and the food came out quickly.... More
