Good quality and quantity of food - and gives you the easy choice of level of spice. Service OK, just a little slow - though was fairly busy when we went

“You can have anything you like, so long as it's Chicken!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

I do enjoy a good visit to Nandos and having the hottest chicken possible. Nandos is pretty homogenous, one is pretty much the same as the other.

Portsmouth is no exception. However, I haven't been to Nandos for a while, and was interested to see the price hike since my last visit. We are in recession, but I remember the portions being much larger last time I went! Getting double chicken in a pitta bread used to mean the chicken would bulge out the pitta pocket and you would have more chicken than bread! Now it seems the economy has hit, and this is no longer the case (or maybe this year saw a poor chicken harvest, and just like our veg, they are not as large as usual, however I feel the first is more plausable!)

The food was still good, and their chips are excellent. I enjoy sloshing as much hot peri-peri sauce on until my mouth resembles the state it does after visting the dentist for anaestetic.

It is really good wholesome food, and doesn't attract undesireables as mentioned by stand up comedians. It doesn't deserve this reputation at all.

I found the staff very helpful, and very friendly. My wife's wrap was delivered without cheeses when paid for, and we got a sincere apology followed by a quick replacement. Nandos has not suffered like other chain restaurants by becomining impersonal and faceless, and that is part of it's success.

The only flaw, is you pay quality restaurant prices for what is effectively a fast-food KFC competitor.

I went to nandos for the first time with very high expectations as many people had recommended it to me. I definitely was not disappointed. Everything was perfect. The food was delicious and served quickly by attentive staff. I am looking forward to my next visit!
