Comments - Stand out in our weekly competition! What did you eat? Unique aspects? Parking/transport tips?: 

A nicely decorated Nando's in a town centre that has clearly seen a lot of investment in recent years. Next to a number of other restaurants and a cinema, it is ideally located for a night out. Also has a nice outside dining area. Some interesting paintings on the wall of vases! There was some confusion over the student discount which the trainee staff member was very patient about. However, her boss was rude and could have been much more courteous. Also some extra dishes were brought to the table by mistake and the waitress looked at us like we were idiots when we told her they were not on the receipt. Not a very welcome feeling. Food was top Nando's to make up for it. 5 star due to extra tasty rice and the entire party noticing particularly tender chicken!
