I tried Nandos at Karachi, Pakistan for the first time and fell in love since then. However, after trying many times at their branches in Dubai, looks like their quality is not the same anymore. What a pity since I was used to be addicted to their peri peri sauce and Portuguese lemonade.

At the Marinascope branch you can see and people watch on the Marina walk. Try to get a table in the shade as it can be very hot. You do get Waiter service here and there are no spicy peas.

went there with family on a vacation to dubai as i had heard a lot about it, and seemed to be all the rage among people for being a new joint serving Portuguese cuisine with 'peri peri' chicken being all the rage. got there, nice decor, was busy as heck. recommend going there by 8 to get seating and service quickly. i was a bit disappointed to see that 'peri peri' chicken is all they got on the menu. peri peri is a distinctive sauce concoction that is slathered onto the chicken preparation. it is tangy and spicy depending upon whether you take mild or hot. that is pretty much it. you can get it only on chicken, no beef nothing(being a muslim country, no pork). the sides were kinda sad and unimaginative. its good the first time around, but second time ? likely not. you can just buy the peri peri sauce by the bottle if you prefer, which they sell there. the grilled chicken (onto which the sauce is slathered) was good, but nothing exceptional. would have tasted better if grilled over wood or coal perhaps to get the smoky flavor. once the place got busy, it was hard to get prompt service. otherwise wait staff was friendly.

I went there with family
The service is ok, good welcome, but the meals are quite simple and not really tasty
I will not come back to Nandos
