Family and fun time. Great eaterie

Great food. A table was found for 4 immediately and we were made comfortable. Food was the best we've had in a Nandos yet beating Ipswich and Birmingham.

While I was attending a first aid course in the area, i decided to grab something out for lunch. A friend told me Nando's did a take out option so I went here. The service was friendly and fast and the food was hot. My order was small but considering the style of food I was very impressed. Would most... More

The food is typical Nando's - good chicken and good sauces. I would have rated as very good but the sides were cold.

We were quickly seated when we visited on a Saturday evening. Despite being told there was about a 20 minute wait, we had a table significantly quicker than that. Food was ordered and arrived very quickly and tasted good. The staff were friendly and attentive, with one of them checking how the food was a few minutes after it arrived.

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
