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

On my way home from an event in Leeds, this was a convenient Nando's just off the motorway. Parking is abundant and free, though it was super busy, even on a weekday, so I had quite a long walk!

I arrived at the restaurant not long after 5.30, so this was a quick in-and-out affair. I was straight to my table, straight to the till, and then the food came within minutes. However, the food itself was disappointing. I went for a butterfly burger, and despite having a decent amount of sauce on top, it was the driest chicken I had ever had at Nando's. Every bite and I was thirsty! It was also quite tough, and a little undersized. I didn't have time to send it back, so a poor review instead I'm afraid.

Despite this being a convenient Nando's, I cannot recommend it since the food was poor, even at a time when the restaurant was quiet and my order had all the attention of the griller. I dread to think what this would be like on a Saturday night!
