We used to avoid this Nando's because the chicken wasn't as succulent as the Riccarton Nandos, not anymore though! We went there last night and met the new owner Craig, he's a great guy and knows what good service means, it makes a huge difference to the dining experience. We had three whole chickens for a group of 8 people,... More

I love nandos and i keep going back but i have yet to have it without something being wrong with the order! The burger buns are always stale, you ask to remove tomato and they dont do it, or its the wrong burger, the chips are the wrong size even though thats what you paid for! so frustrating. Went in...

When we want some comic relief, we go to this Nando's…. We've visited several times over the years and have been happy. But over the last couple of months, service has become abysmal. Over the course of several weeks, we ordered chips-nothing more-just chips. Once walking in and ordering and twice calling in for takeaway. Our orders took 20, 25,... More

Dined here recently having read a few reviews saying how good the food was. We were very disappointed, the chicken we ordered was bland and, had hardly any flavour at all, the chips were just average with a sprinkling of seasoning on them, The service was awful and chaotic and there were no cutlery or glasses available, and lots of...

Let me start by saying that I am no stranger to Nandos. I have eaten at a large number of their restaurants all over the world and have a fair idea of what to expect. Me and a colleague turned up after work and was surprised to see it absolutely dead. No customers at all. Not a good sign but... More

Eaten there 2x in last 10 days. Overall reasonable value. If you want tasty then " hot" is minimum you should order. Found double breast burger just superb .... So tasty and plenty. Old fashioned chips are great. Paella tasty but a bit short on the chicken bits. Overall I thought the cafe was ok and provided some difference from... More

Although they do takeaways, this more of a sit-down restaurant due to the time it takes them to prepare the food. Burgers have real whole chicken breasts, pre-marinaded and cooked to order. It takes more time (and is more expensive), but the results are worthwhile in my opinion.

Looking for a quick meal before going to a concert. Chicken tenderloins very tasty but found the chips very over salted. Partner had Portugese Chicken Skewer - tasty but not enough chicken for the price that was paid. Not sure that we would go back

For the price you pay, you would expect something edible. Tastes like microwaved crap that you go with out. The coleslaw at the super market seems fresher then what they serve here
