“Simple, but effective”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

I have been many time to this nando's and it has always been very fast and tasty. I do not review this on the same basis i would review other restaurants because the concept is different, but from what i expect from a nandos, this is one of the best. Friendly team and manager, like i said before, very quick

“Always faultless”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

I have been to this nandos several times now and the service is just so quick and that is exactly what you want for this type of dinner. Just to pop out and grab a bite to eat. The staff are also always friendly and smily. Just nothing happens to want me to write something negative it just is what it is. Always a fun evening. Great that there is free parking too. A real bonus for me.

“Too expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

The food is great and without nandos, Piri Piri wouldn't be with us. The service is grease lightning. Never have to wait for food. All let down by the cost and lack of lunchtime offers.

“Same old same old”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

I'm not even sure why I went here... I've been before and there's nothing remotely special or spectacular about it. Its merely chicken with hideously overpriced sides... I cannot believe that i forked out £12 for a measly chicken breast in a pompous bun with McDonald's fries and enough coleslaw to feed a family of 5.
Its no good other that to cure a hangover or fill your bladder to bursting on weak post-mix fizzy drinks.
It does have some good points though. The establishment is very clean and new. A pretty decor brightened up the visit ( I found this more interesting than my food) the staff did what they had to do and nothing more. Perhaps, at 28, I'm too old for Nando's but I'm certainly wiser to returning to such prefabricated hub that has positioned itself for mass income and profit as opposed to customer worth and satisfaction.

“nice staff very nice food but portions sizes small”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

i always attempt to come here when its quiet but on both occasions they were busy, staff very friendly taken to a table very promptly i do realise that you have to order your food at the queue and have to get your own sauces drinks etc but i dont mind as it kills some time waiting for your food to be cooked and to arrive rather than sitting at the table twiddling my thumbs or playing with a phone etc the food in nearly all occasions arrives piping hot bar one occasion where one item was cold which was replaced swiftly as i requested one of the staff although he personally got the hump i cant tar all the other staff due to one waiters actions, the waitresses always ask you if the food is ok which i dont notice so much in other places so all in all very happy just one slight qualm please why are the portions so small as i didnt think you could get chicken breast that small apart from that happy
