Recently opened and fabulous inside decor and facilities. We ordered a variety of dishes, which were pretty decent! The chicken butterfly (breast with crispy skin) was good but a little small (if you're famished, get it with chips). The 1/2 chicken (a leg piece and a breast piece) was so-so, the leg was nice but the breast piece was very... More

I enjoyed the unique flavors that Nando's offered. The 3 rating was due to the dry chicken. I hoped for a bit more.

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!

This is a nice place to go for a meal on the Cowley Road. The location is good and the inside is not bad either. I like the seating in the little minstrels gallery, which I think is the unique thing about this place. Otherwise, it is what you expect: fried chicken, hot sauce chips etc.

Horrible service, no one taking care about guests. Food spent one hour to be ready and when I got up to talk with them about this they answer with rudness and arrogance. When they realised we didn't even have the hummus that should have come as a starter they didn't apologise. I will never come back. They really need a... More
