I work away a lot and always know I'm in good company when I find a Nando's. Carlisle branch happens to be the worst one I've been to. It was 5pm on a Monday and we practically had the pick of the tables. We went up and ordered, it was quiet and the cooking area was quiet and we waited... More

My Grand Childrens favourite place to eat. Not sure how they do it, its a bit like the spam sketch from Monty Python with chicken in various degrees of hot sauce being the main offering but its great.

Came in before going to cinema. Plenty of choice. The server explained drinks machine was broken and offered plenty of alternatives. We decided on sharing meal and went to order. Drinks were even more limited but staff couldn't apologise enough and actually glad of cordial we picked- not normal choice. We didn't have to wait long. We hadn't picked up... More

Pappa S loves the spicy chicken here! Sometimes it's really loud and the acoustics aren't great - also when there is a bunch of yobs or undesirables it's not the best but the staff always try to make it a better experience. Understand they can't ban everyone. Queen E usually gets lemon and herb pitta and enjoys it each time.... More

They seem to have cracked it here now, as this was a very good visit only let down by a wobbly table! Normally I find Nandos to be average (with the exception of the last visit), but this time I would have given them 5 out of 5 had it not been for the wobbly table. The service was very... More

Apart from having a wobbly table everything went pretty well on this visit (something usually goes wrong). Food arrived in a reasonable time and was lovely. Took a while for them to realise we'd finish and come to take the plates away/ask if we wanted anything else, but that's probably because by that point we were the only people sitting... More

Overall pretty average. My first visit to a Nandos and it was ok. Food was average but a bit expensive for what it was (small chicken breast in a bun and chips). The food was just about warm enough but a decent starter and the sauces were ok. Service was average as you do most of it yourself any way.

Six of us visited for a two year olds birthday lunch. The staff put some tables together and provided a high chair. They were busy but our server was so very helpful. Gluten free for me was excellent. Food was excellent all round. We had a birthday cake and they put candles on for us. Fabulous service. Highly recommend.
