Nando's is one of those restaurants where you order at the counter, and then they bring you your food. You help yourself to cutlery, drinks, and sauces.

Nando's thing is chicken, which they serve either in sandwiches or as meal packs (sort of like KFC) where you can choose how much chicken you want and what side dishes you want. The chicken is grilled (not fried) and is moist and delicious. The side dishes (we had salad, garlic bread, mashed peas) were OK.

The value of your meal here is not great. A whole chicken with 4 small side dishes came to the equivalent of $30.

I had heard only good things about this chain so I was anxious to give it a try. The chicken dishes are really, really great and it goes really well with the beer. So do not hesitate to visit a Nando's restaurant.

generally a good experience, the food was lovely but service was average. The chicken is a must with extra hot sause for those who dare.

I would also recommend having a Savannah to wash it all done with.

I love going to Nandos. There is usually a bit of a wait because it is always busy but it's worth the wait. Staff are friendly and the food is delicious! Good prices as well. I especially like the bottomless soft drinks.

I will start off by saying the food quality and service here is a good standard for Nandos and it would be worth your time if you enjoy Nando's filling chicken meals.....on a quiet day. This is one of the most popular tourist/group restaurants in Oxford, due to be being close to the city centre and to the train station so it is often very busy inside. I prefer to sit and eat my meals but you can feel a bit pressured to eat quickly and move on.
It is less busy in the early evenings or the middle of the afternoon so if you fancy eating here come during those times to beat the crowds.
