Nando's is a good choice when watching calories as you can order fillets. This time around I had the barbecue fillets and garden salad. My husband had a half chicken and the yummy Portuguese rolls. Order the large portion of rolls and take the rest home. The chicken is always flavoursome and the service friendly. The Colombo Street restaurant is... More

We had only been to a Nandos once before at an airport so thought we would give the local one a try. We ordered when there was barely anyone in the restaurant but we had to wait nearly half an hour for our food. We weren't offered water even while we waited. When it arrived the Mediterranean chicken salad had... More

I went today for a quick meal and chose the tenderloins (lemon & herb). Really good tasting and tender. The Portuguese rolls are my favourite and I chose the large option in order to take some home. Friendly staff and spacious seating area.

I am a big fan in England, but here not so much. They did not serve Chicken Butterfly or even garlic bread as a side. In England, these are highly popular items, and I was slightly disappointed as a result. They did however have a nice selection of burgers, which were tasty particularly the limited edition.

We ate the chicken set here, it was good and most important is its Halal for muslim. The staffs are nice & helpful too. The sauce they use is different from the one in Malaysia but I still love it.

We went for a latish dinner. The chicken was great (I had tenderloins and my husband a quarter chicken). I ordered Portuguese rolls and you have to wait a little but they are absolutely delicious. Great for take-out or dine in. Friendly staff.

We went here for lunch, I thought the chicken was average and quite expensive for what you got. Staff were friendly enough but I wouldn't be in a hurry to go back.

My parents, my wife, her friend and I took my son here on the spur of the moment for a meal to celebrate his success in a regional theatre competition. It was a horribly cold night so we asked to sit at the back of the room. The space was a little cramped but our waiter was very obliging (in... More

Nice clean restaurant, friendly staff, up to Nandos usual standard. Options for people who don't eat chicken.

My partner and I have been to Nandos on several different occasions and the new owner has transformed it into a spectacular experience! We are greeted like old friends as we arrive, the service is prompt and attentive. My favourite is always without a doubt the supremo chicken burger with caramelised onion and cheese, accompanied by the peri peri chips... More
