I visited here last Saturday with my elderly mother. Yes, the restaurant is a chain, but the service was excellent and the food was ample. It was also well-cooked and presented. I also enjoyed the atmosphere. We waited 10 minutes for a table, but in many ways that was a vouch for sincerity as a busy restaurant equates to a... More

It's a typical nandos it's good food at a decent price. Had the hot sauce chicken . Wasn't as hot as I prepared for but everyone's taste is different. Certainly a good advert for a nandos

Lunchtime visit for takeaway. We were waiting about 15 minutes for the food which was a little long as our time was limited - have since been advised to order via the app prior to visiting for greater speed which I will try next time. Food was tasty - went for a kids meal and this was more than enough... More

I visited Nando's for the very first time and I was pleasantly surprised... The venue in Friar Street was buzzing on a Wednesday night, always a good sign! We had a great table, food was so delicious and the white wine spritz was out of this world. The staff are really friendly & efficient. Highly recommend if you are in... More

I always have 1/4 chicken but ordered the steak roll for the first time ever, it came rare as I hadn't thought to say I would need it cooked all the way through. Staff didn't understand but got the manager who could not have been more understanding and professional. Saved my visit.

Like any BBQ chicken, it is tasty. I did not know it is semi-server restaurant. I paid at cashier first, they bring the food to your table. Looks like this place is quite popular with locals.

This defiantly not the best nandos I have been to. Nice enough but I would possibly try the one in the Oracle instead.
