I don't normally review dry run meals, but this was great so I thought I would anyway!

I turned up right as last orders were served, and there were only butterfly breasts and drumsticks to choose from. I opted for the former, and sat down to take in this brand new Nando's. The decoration is fantastic, with lots of interesting artwork, and some unique chair designs, both downstairs and upstairs. The food came after about 10 minutes, and was very good. The butterfly was tender and hot, though could have had a little bit more sauce on it, and chips and rice were both top quality. A caramel cheesecake topped things off, and it was probably the best one I have ever had, with an even-thicker-than-usual bit of caramel running through it.

Throughout the meal the staff were incredibly attentive, and very chatty. We felt exceptionally welcome, and will definitely be back again soon!
