“Gotta Love Nando's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Not as good as Basingstoke, as the wait for your food can be very long and the wings sometimes come out burnt.

However, this is another great nando's at the right times (when it's not busy)

Generaly friendly staff and always willing to make sure your meal is good.

“Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Always reliable, always tasty, staff are always friendly - and good value! It is a simple, no-nonsense menu, of course a chain with a big franchise. But the formula works - reliable and liked by all my family and friends.

“The kids love it and so do I”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Always enjoy Nandos as it is one of the few places I can eat at and not feel stupid for not really eating chips! I love their spicy rice.

So I must admit I am a bit of a Nandos junky and the kids get it as well. sometime service is slow,. but when you have people overflowing from the waiting area and queuing into the street you know it is popular - and for good reason.

I always go for the hot sauce on the chicken and it never disappoints. Bottomless drinks are great too.

Be clear this is a fun fast food, sit down and pay the premium but ENJOY! As trhey say on teh napkins "Wipe that smile off your face!"

I steer clear of the desert menu - the ice cream/frozen yogurt machine always seems broken (go get a McFlurry across the road - miles cheaper and just better!)

“Good food and fast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

We had a nice meal at Nandos before the cinema. It was a fast turnaround and not too expensive for five of us. They have a good loyalty scheme too.

“Its Nando's :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Anytime I come to the UK I try to go to Nando's at least once. This is a nice small cozy Nando's , and food is as always great.
