My husband and I were both Nando's virgins before we ate here and let's just say like most first times, we regret it!! I have heard for so long how good this place is but there isn't one where I live so when we couldn't get anywhere else open as early on a Sunday morning we thought we would give... More

This was my first visit to a Nando's and to be honest I won't rush back, the restaurant itself is very busy but the staff are still doing a superb job, the restaurant was clean and service was quick, but personally the food was nothing to get excited about and was expensive for what you got, my butterfly chicken was...

Came to nandos on my own with my nephew, the staff could help anymore, sometime you get the feeling that they do not want children in the resturant. But nandos was very helpful! Also great food! Would recommend anyone to go there with children

Visited for lunch and was not disappointed. I had gluten free butterfly chicke, macho peas and chips. Friend had butterfly chicken burger and chips. We followed with frozen yoghurt. It was busy but the service was excellent and staff very friendly.

I arrived at nanny's on a Friday night after 10pm, we was the only customer's in the restaurant. It was pouring with rain and had just arrived in Carlisle and was looking for somewhere to eat after checking in to our hotel. Nando's was the only place we found that was still open. I have eaten at Nando's plenty of... More

I just read a review on 3rd oct, scarily similar experience. We eat in at least one Nando's a week for work, usually quick and easy; lots of them and you know what you're getting. This one was shockingly slow; with very little offer of an apology. We stopped on route from Scotland to london so time was of the... More

First time in Nando's and I was impressed until I found it was order at the counter and self service on the soft drinks. Surely fir the cost of chicken they could employ a couple of more staff to serve. Food was good grilled vegetables and the spicy olive starter were very good. Could do a lot better. Decent service...

OK, it's evidently a chain, something like El Pollo Loco in the states, but a sit down eatery. The food was very good, the service was excellent. We ate there twice it was so good.

The most disorganised Nando's ever. As a frequent business traveller, I visit Nando's often whilst working all over the UK. First time at this one and definitely the last time.....Food was left standing for a while on the counter. The queue was busy with just one person serving. I was then told the wait would be half an hour because... More

Been to this Nando's a good few times, and we've got used to having to wait (not because it's busy, it's usually dead when we go in). This time however, our food arrived very quickly, and was actually hot - usually you get the feeling it's been sat out for a while waiting for someone to get round to bringing... More
