Absolute shocking trip recently to my local nandos. Cutlery put in wrong bowls ie forks in knife bowl and knifes in fork bowl. And they were all dirty took me 5 knifes till I got a clean one. The ice in the water machine didn't work and was causing a huge queue. Never mind the fact I was asked for my spare 2 seats at my table as I was waiting for guests. 3 times I was asked for the seats and was ready to throw the chair at him. Worst nandos in uk.

My first trip to Aberdeen, and I found myself right next to Union Square shopping centre. A visit to Nando's was therefore on the cards! It was easy to find amongst the restaurants on the first floor of the nice new shopping centre, and in a prime spot right opposite the cinema.

A huge shout out to these champions. The boots nandos junkies bombarded them with our huge order just minutes after opening. the staff were friendly and let us order then pay on pick up once we collected the cash from the staff. the order was ready when they said it would be and the food was well prepared and exactly as always from union square, fantastic. These guys deserve this review as I've never been disappointed by their service

Parking was easy to find and the place is well signposted. Near to the railway station too so handy if you don't drive. Staff were friendly, there was a small mix-up over the order but the manager was very helpful. Food was very nice even though it was busy, but the restaurant is specious enough that you don't feel cramped. Would definitely eat here again if I am in the area.

This store is based in the new shopping complex of union square built on former railway sidings near the quays off market st, an impressive collection of high street brands, eateries, leisure and boutique. Fueled by the North sea oil industry these shops were on fire with trade and there were many American accents a midst the thralls of shoppers. Don't follow satnav or you will end up in an industrial part of the docks.

It's always been good, but this time was amazing, We all ordered seperately (there were four of us) and by the time the last person came back from the till, the first person's food came straight away, quickly followed by the others. Everything was neat and tidy, it always is and the food, as per usual was amazing. Nando's Aberdeen gets better everytime I go!

It's located in a shopping centre, and cineworld is literally right across from it, it's fabulous! They don't offer student discount unfortunately, but that's alright cause it's cheap anyway and SO worth it! the nearest train station is yet again located in the centre, literally a 2 minute walk and there is a 200 space car park and a multi storey car park outside, so they have everything! Nando's is AMAZING

Parking close to the railway station, nott too expensive and only a fairly short walk away. There is a cinema opposite the restaurant inside the shopping centre.
