Bradford - Centenary Square - Jo Corrado Review
Popped into Nandos at Bradford Centenary Square. The Centenary Square branch of Nando's is becoming a regular stop off for me and my friends before the theatre. It is conveniently located in Cenenary Squre overlooking the picturesque fountain and a 2 minute stroll from the Alhambra Theatre so full marks for location.
I ordered a Veggie Burger plain with cheese, chips and a soda. Also ordered my must have item - Nando's Perinaise! This makes the meal for me as it is a nice tangy dipping sauce for the chips. There was an instore competitions for a free meal for 2 at Nando's if you buy 2 Perinaise dips so I took full advantage of this and it was an excuse to buy even kore Perinaise! My friend ordered a chicken burger with lemon and herb sauce and grilled vegetables as a side and we both got our 20% NHS discount with the food.
The food came after 7 minutes. My burger was nice but could have done with some more mayonnaise and was also slightly overcooked. My friend felt that hers was slightly overcooked too. The chips were lovely though - a nice generous portion, crispy and piping hot.
The branch itself is a large airy and spacious one with a mixture of tables booths and also some outside seating looking over Centenary Square which gave some lucky customers a gorgeous view whilst tucking in to their food. Our table was clean and situated underneath a bright orange overhead lamp which gave an atmospheric setting to the meal. There was a lot of room on either side of the table unlike in some Nandos branches which gave us a bit more privacy and space. The toilets were clean but a bit on the small side.
The staff were a mixed bag - the lady serving seemed new to the job and unsure of how to process the order but the staff in charge of the tables were extremely friendly. I had to dash back inside because I'd left my Perinaise on the table as I left (the horror!) and when I got back it was no longer there but the friendly waitress said it was no problem and immediately got me another one.
All in all a pleasant trip to Nando's Centenary Square. It's always a great option for a pre or post-theatre food stop due to its proximity to the theatre and speed of service.
