It's chicken

Not enough variety on the menu, prefer KFC. Cheerful young staff aimed at teens to thirties. More flavour sauces would be nice

Not greeted just starred at by cooks and off duty staff. Sat ourselves. Eventually given menu and ordered. Watch cooks - I can't call them chefs warm up my meal and serve. Did have a check back and food was ok. Then left with plates in front of us and watched off duty staff roll a cigarette on the edge... More

This was my first visit to a Nando's so this review is based on my experience specifically at Freeport, Braintree. Firstly, I didn't realise that it is essentially a fast food restaurant (it doesn't give this impression from the outside) but at least the environment seemed generally clean and the tables were not too cramped. The order of business is... More

Big queue in door but got seated with 10 minutes. It's chicken and chips. Can't really go wrong but a little expensive clean and tidy and a good atmosphere !

First time to this one, and it started well, the guy planning the seating and taking names was friendly and very good at working out the seating. We were seated within 15mins on a Sat Night, but then it went wrong, we ordered food, and waited and waited as the food piled up on the counter, a few of the... More

I suppose it is what it is but why people would want to pay good money for it baffles me. Maybe i ordered the wrong thing, but the place is busy? I think that the reason the place does so well is not the the food is any good or even that's its a nice place to eat, which its... More

I have teenage kids who love Nandos and so am persuaded by them to visit fairly often. It is usually easy to get seated at this particular branch and if you can stay away from the doors you are saved from a cold blast every so often. Service is always prompt which is fab if you're visiting the cinema. However... More

Our swimming club were competing in a gala at the leisure centre opposite. To celebrate the end of the gala, we decided to go over to Nando's for something to eat. We had been in June and the swimmers all wanted to go again. I have to say, the service we received along the way was just amazing. Absolutely nothing... More

Went to Nando's again at the weekend before going to the Cineworld next door. Yet again the service was fast friendly and efficient and the food was good, I eat here quite a bit because my son is a teenager so this is his favourite place to eat before the Cinema and I can honestly say I have never had...
