“Fine so long as you don't expect too much”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

The restaurant in Guildford is in a good location near the Friary shopping centre and other busy attractions and shops in the town. The service is good, food is basically chicken and chips dressed up in many different ways - nothing wrong with that so long as that is what you are after. Better for family groups and gatherings of friends than for a night out as a couple. Prices are ok if a tad expensive but that's true all over the town. Don't quite understand the hype I have heard about Nando's but it's solid performance from chain type operator.

“Like every other Nandos”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

I am just going to review this particular Nandos since I have been to many others before. The experience along the board tends to be relatively consistent. Quite nice food, with average sides, and refillable drinks. At the end of the day, all it is, is chicken and chips.... Nice chicken and chips, but chicken and chips all the same. Food is a bit on the pricey side, considering you are not really waited on.

“The place for your chicken!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This place has a very friendly and lively atmosphere!
It is very polular for the chicken dishes which are marinated in a variety of mixtures from "normal" to "extremely hot". Very well cooked and tasty!
It works on a self-order basis meaning that after you get your table you have to go to the till and place your order. You then have to take your plates, cuttlery and dressings.
All members of the staff are very polite and smiling!
Make sure you have a reservation during peak hours or be prepared to wait for more than 20 minutes.
The prices are very good. We have 2 children and we always get the full chicken plate which is enough for all of us for about 18 pounds.
The restaurant does not provide home delivery service but you can place your order on the phone and then collect it by yourself.

“Overrated”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

I didn't apprecciate very much the nando's food, maybe because i'm italian and i'm used to eat better. On the other hand, i liked the way you order the food and the restaurant atmosphere . I would recommend this for kids parties.
