A normal Nandos experience, service is fine, place is clean and always busy! A good location next to the river, never have any problems here - can't wait for our next visit.

After doing a bit of late night shopping in the oracle popped here after for dinner. Seated quick, despite it being busy and although a queue to order food was quick to come and was lovely!

Very noisy, busy, bad service and food not warm enough once served. Far too few staff which resulted in them being very offish.

The first thing we were faced with upon entering this restaurant was a poorly mannered middle-aged man with a blunt "take out or eat in?" The service got worse as the wait for food was around 40 mins and the waiters gave dirty looks throughout the entire meal. The burgers we ordered were dry, overpriced, simplified. The chips were also... More

As always I love a good "cheeky" nandos, the food was on point as expected, but the service from the trainee till lady was very disappointing - had to tell her things on my order more than once, very unfriendly when I tried making conversation and worse of all she got her phone out once giving me the payment machine...

Visited Nandos for the first time tonight after my son kept saying its a must! Had chicken in mango and lime sauce in a pitta bread with chips and coleslaw. My son had boneless chicken thighs with peri salt chips and spicy rice. Two soft drinks all came to £25 which I thought was great value. Food really nice, hot... More

If you're in for some quick service and don't want to eat junk like McDonald's, then Nando's is your friend. Their chicken is tender and juicy and comes with a bunch of sauces and sides. This is pretty much a nofrills place with a lot of self service, but the food is very good and staff helpful.

Last time I ate peri peri chicken was in 2012, so when I saw there was a Nando's in the Oracle I didn't think it twice. I ordered the 1/4 lemon chicken with chips and green salad. It was very tasty and flavorsome, though a bit mild for a medium spicy chicken. I went there on Sunday evening, so it... More

Known for chicken, but try the chicken livers, as they're a treat, we had them as a starter, before going in for bbq chicken. Good service, only downside is you have to order and pay for your meal, I guess if you know this before you go in that's ok... We did, bottomless soft drinks nice touch, and saves having... More
