Me and my fiancé dined in this restaurant last night, as we always do when heading to watch a film at the cinema. We were seated at around 7pm, and a couple next to us were seated 5 minutes after, and they received their food before us. This restaurant was severely understaffed, the kitchen staff had to help the floor... More

Not often would I give a Nando's 5/5 but I have found the service here to be top notch on every visit. This time there were around 15 of us ordering in the standard Nando's fashion and the food on a busy night was quick hot and tasty. But as always the staff at this particular Nando's are the shining... More

Was fairly empty but waited a few minutes for the hostess to seat up. About tens minutes later it started to fill up. Haven't been to a British for some years and was keen to see how it compares to the states. Menu is practically the same but more expensive. You pick what you want and order at the bar... More

Was OK but nothing really special would not rush to go again bit like eating in a large ballroom and noisy because it seems to have a busy turn over . Its a chain so maybe others are better staff seemed a little tired nothing really sparkled

This was our first meal at Nando's. A whole new eating experience for my husband and I. On entering the restaurant, we were greeted by a waitress who enquired if we had been to Nando's before and, as we had not, enlightened us to how the system works. After being shown to the table and then choosing a meal, this... More

Eaten at a number of Nandos and always like the quick service and tasty food. The girl behind the till was friendly as where the staff attending tables. Happy to seat us in a booth which was for a larger group but as not too busy not an issue. Will definitely eat at Nandos again.

I have been to nandos in Braintree a few times in the past ! But this was the most disappointing ! Mouldy bread on the burger!! And all they offered was a fresh roll when the mould had been placed over the chicken ! DISGUSTING!

My first Nando's meal for over 5 years! Not much has changed on the menu in all that time, the experience has not changed and yet it continues to be a successful chain. Service was quick, no fault with the food, chicken cooked well and the salad very good. The pomegranate dressing was the highlight for me, bottomless soft drinks... More
