This tired ageing store is in the Leisure exchange complex which comprises of a Holiday Inn, Cineworld cinema, Holywood bowl and Grosvenor Casino. I parked just off Vicar lane in a car park which is free after 6pm and only a very short walk away.

Food as usual is SUPERB!!! I am a regular at Nando's and have been for a number of years. My regular order along with my girlfriend is Creamy Mash - Large Fries - 2 Cokes - Full Chicken and a Chicken Platter. YES, I have a big appetite. BUT can you blame me??!! The food is AWESOME!!!! Forever a regular. The staff are so polite I have even had discounts from them from becoming a regular.

There was plenty of space between the tables meaning all could get through easily without issue, the restaurant was remarkably clean and well kept. The service was great with all the staff being helpful and our waitress coming to check on us every 8 minutes or so, who would help us with anything she could. The food was great and had a really nice taste, and my peri peri chips weren't too salty either, however there could have been a few more.

Nando’s 80 is located in the Leisure Exchange, a generic entertainment complex just outside the centre of Bradford. We arrived late on Saturday evening to a variety of parking choices but chose to go with the closest, a relatively low-priced multi-storey. After passing Hollywood Bowl, Cineworld and Frankie & Benny’s, we got to Nando’s. There was a bit of a wait for a table, as we’d expected at this time, but this was only 10 minutes or so. Good, considering there were 8 of us to seat.

I was on a road trip to Leeds this weekend (we are from Edinburgh and regularly visit Nandos in Livingston, Chambers Street and Fountain Park) and accidentally booked into the Holiday inn express in Bradford. The only thing that made such a Huge mistake a whole lot better was there was a Nando's opposite the hotel entrance. Cue 3 very excited girls! We were the 1st customers of the day on sunday 10th November and went for a hangover lunch. The experience was unreal.

A post race meal needed after the half marathon, so it made sense to eat at The Leisure Exchange Nando's!

Arrived here just after 12pm on Sunday and there was only a couple sets of people eating, so almost the whole restaurant to myself and the food came in just under 10 minutes. Staff were pleasant enough too.

Just popped out to the flicks with my beautiful lady, saw the glowing beacon that is Nandos and we were pulled in by the amazing smell of peri-peri chicken. We like this branch as it has some amazing art work on the wall. Usual fix of expertly prepared chicken with a little over indulgence of sides and extras. What a world we live in that we have access to such amazing culinery delights as Nandos.

I have been to this nandos a couple of times previous and never had any problems before so was expecting a pleasant meal.
Sitting on a complex with cinema, bowling and cheap parking around the corner i was anticipating a busier restaurant than i was met with.
We were shown to our table by lady who i must admit looked fairly bored. She told us our table number and walked away.

considering this is freshers week and a lot of students had earned a free nandos at the freshers fayre, i expected the service to be poor. but it was amazing, the staff were very polite and friendly and as usual i left a satisfied customer.

Right opposite Hollywood Bowl and Cineworld and a short walk from the train station and Bradford city centre.

Ah, well this Nando's branch is always buzzing with people. And on this occasion me and my friends attended in fancy dress! We'd just been to the cinema and it was themed for a birthday. Then some of us drove and the car parking was veryyy close, but some caught trains which are only on the other side of the road. Very handy!
