Stopped here for lunch :) cannot fault it at all. Was greeted and seated straight away, food come out within less than 5mins of ordering. Nando's is a chain but I would never fault this specific restaurant. Staff seemed friendly and good customer service.

This is a great Nando's to visit, always busy as you would expect but quieter than the Oracle one. Staff were excellent and as you would expect the food delicious. I would definitely recommend this restaurant

It was my Son's 16th Birthday, he loves Nando's so he wanted to go to this particular branch. we were greeted at the door and sat at a table within 30seconds of entering the building. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. The four of us chose our meals, our order was placed and within 7 - 10 minutes... More

What I like about Nando's is you know what you are going to get. Small portions for a lot of money. My recent visit there I had half a chicken (and it must have been a very tiny chicken) two strips of hullumi cheese, an avocado and it cost me £11.50. I don't think this was good value for money

This is a very small Nando's restaurant and unfortunately you can see right into the kitchen from most tables - we were sat right by the kitchen and were able to count at least 3 microwaves that were constantly being used to heat up corn, veg, peas - most of the side dishes that Nando's offer. Such a shame that... More

Good Nandos. Great,quick service. Tasty as always. Music TOO loud and speakers distorting :-( great location near the station in Friar street. Decor not as good as the Riverside Nandos but still enjoyable.

Always dependable with tasty food and has a good atmosphere. Near the Oracle and Cinemas. We have visited other Nando's and tried most items on the menu over serval visits and this one is particularly good.

Met up with family after travelling in by rail. Not to far from the station. Food was nice, but portions are not big, so make sure you order your side dishes to bulk them up. Seemed to be understaffed and they all looked tired and fed up.

We ordered no-spicy liver as our daughter is little and doesn't like spicy food yet. It took three rounds to get something not really spicy but you could still sense it. They don't seem to listen to you properly.
