Visit with friends for dinner. Nice environment. Despite being second to order my meal came at least 5 minutes after everyone else's and my burger was cold. They warmed it up but meant it was much later than everyone else's. Sunset burger was good and everyone else enjoyed their meals

We visited Nando's over the weekend. It's safe to safe it's not the first Nando's we have been to, and it won't be the last. You can't get fitter than a chicken in a pitta! On arrival we found the entrance tricky to manoeuvre for a buggy. There were two steps, which meant we had to pick the buggy up.... More

This chicken was far superior to the ones I get in Nandos in London. The rice was warm and the chicken juicy and spicy. please come to teach how to cook it to the West Hampstead branch. I wish I could go to this branch all the time! Well done!
