“Just an average Nandos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

We went here whilst staying a few days in York.
The resturant was busy and we waited for a while before they opened the first floor of the resturant.
The tables were a little dirty, but service was quick, food was ok and speedy.

Overall I would recommend this resturant for an easy quick eat in York city centre.

“Terrible!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

i am gobsmacked and amazed how Nandos is so popular. I had chicken fillet burger which was a dried up bit of chicken in a dry bun and few really awful chips. When it was put in front of me I was shocked at how basic it is. I think they get better food in prison. I was then told i need to go to a sauce bar and choose the sauce which is a processed, fake tasting nothingness reminiscent of cheap kebab shops. Its like they can give you a rotten plate of food but it will all be ok cos you can smother it in this processed fake sauce. It was a complete rip off and disappointment and I think the only people who like Nandos are people who can't cook themselves and know no different. The staff were friendly though.

“Good surroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

God service but not the best value for money in porion size. Food tasty though the pricing structure is reasonable but not great for a city centre location.

“Great food, good price and friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

Went with my student son. Sat upstairs which was really relaxing as you can order up there and it's a pleasant room. Food was good and he wanted ice cream afterwards. After ordering they had run out of chocolate ice cream so he was offered another choice. Chose chocolate fudge pudding at no extra cost which he enjoyed, having been on a student ration! We will be back again.
