“Nice enough food and good value vs DIY service and chaos at tills”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

I have to say that I did pick a very busy and wet Sunday to visit this particular Nandos. But I have to say that the staff did deal with taking orders politely and efficiently, the food was delivered timely and hot and the meal itself was good value.

Some people might be more used to the Trafford Centre experience with full table service. This is however not present at Nandos in Bolton. Instead they are proving an odd halfway house of a service, with deserts ordered at the table but appetisers and main courses ordered from a till.

You get your own drinks and as the glasses on some things are bottomless, that's suites many just fine.

All in all, quite a pleasant time.... and a lot better than getting wet outside :D

“Best Nandos we have been to for food quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

This was the first Nandos we had been to and make frequent trips. The food is always consistent unlike some of the other Nandos we have eaten in.
It is in an ideal spot as there it is on a shopping area.

“Standard.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Been to lots of Nandos and the food here was on par with the others I have visited. If you like Nandos you will not be disappointed. Other Nandos I have visited have had more friendly service and a better atmosphere.

“its good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

great food, staff are a bit hit and miss but once you have got your meal it is all forgotten about with them, atmosphere is calming, it is a bit pricey though.

“Not the best!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

I was seeing customers nearby & we popped in here for lunch. You pretty well know what you are getting when you visit a Nandos, tasty chicken & being grilled, it's not as unhealthy as some of their chain rivals.
Food was ok, but I thought the place needed a good clean. My table was sticky & needed wiping properly & there was quiet a lot of debris on the floor, which bearing in mind it was a quiet Monday lunchtime is got great.
