“Not what we're used to from Nandos”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

We thought we'd have dinner here one night as we expected the experience would be the same store-wide. Unfortunately this wasn't the case, the food took longer than expected to arrive, adding to this, they had RUN OUT OF CHICKEN! This was at about 7pm so it wasn't as if we were at the end of the night.
We were also shocked that the food was prepared without gloves and we saw the chef wiping his face and nose before making the meals before ours. Absolutely disgusting.
Better hygiene practices need to be employed at this store.

“Clean, friendly and pleasant.”
Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

The food is very tasty, although it can be a little on the pricy side for "take away" style food. We dined in; the experience was nice but we were the only diners for the whole time we were there. At 7 on a Saturday evening this is surprising. Still, the staff were very friendly and greeted with a smile. If you don't mind spending a few extra dollars it is a recommended place to dine.

“Expensive and slow”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

The food was OK (they let you choose the level of spicyness you want). Some of the sauces were sour and funny tasting but edible. Looking at the menu, most of the mains looked reasonable but the sides were expensive! Without ordering a side, the meal wouldn't have been enough to feed one person so it really added up. It also took over 30 minutes for me to get my order.
