As far as I know it was the usual busy Nandos experience. We ate there on a Monday night and even then we had to que for 15 - 20 minutes to get a table as we had not booked. We do not usually bother to que as there are always alternatives to eat in cities but as said there... More

Stopped shopping to have lunch. Once again Nandos is a great choice. Staff are welcoming, attentive and informative. We had the 2 to share with 4 sides and whole chicken, cut into quarters. So much on plate we couldn't move!

I went the other day with my friends (I didn't know the restaurant or the chain) and I was deeply satisfied with my visit! I was surprised by the variety of healthy but tasty options! Plus, everybody was really smiley and helpful. Especially a guy (I think his name was Vincente and seemed Portuguese or Spanish) who was extremely nice... More

Had a very enjoyable visit, had the chicken thighs mild with lemon and herb, crispy, moist and full of flavour, very nice. Very quick service and very good staff, checking you have everything you need, everything is all good.

Been in for a cheeky nandos a few times here, love it. I don't think I've ever had a bad nandos. Warning, can get busy on weekends, so don't go moaning if you have to wait for a seat or your food takes longer... That's life. Really bloody cheeky.

Had been before and took my partner as I thought it was a reasonable meal and experience but sadly on this occasion I saw a different side. After ordering food we waited only a few minutes for our starters, Wings Roulette (to say the least...very boring,greasy and utterly tasteless). We had taken our first wing each when our main courses... More

Having eaten at nandos in the past I have been wary of there Chicken meals in exeter, but having heard locally, and read nationally of their MOULDY Chickens I/we shall NEVER eat there again. This is absolutely disgusting. Again the problem is young staff not checking the food and under cooking. In future I/we shall be eating in proper restaurants.... More

Domingos (front of house/host) is an absolute asset to Nando's Exeter, his custom service is the best I've encountered anywhere! Foods always great 5 Stars!
