In October a group of us had had a bad experience at a newly opened Nandos that hadn't been prepared for the demand and we're given a voucher to spend on another meal as a goodwill gesture. However we didn't realise the joint voucher had expired when we booked to go to Chelmsford Nandos on saturday. On arrival we spoke to the manager who said he couldn't honour the voucher but would try to help us out ,we just need to call him when we order.

Welcomed like a king and the chicken was exceptional as well.

Décor is not up to scratch compared to some other establishments I have visited but cleanliness here more than makes up for it.

Lovely fun filled evening to celebrate nephews birthday....this was his choice of venue. Accommodates all tastes, which is great, as 2 were vegetarians! All hot food was perfect, and salads & sides. Only down side was frozen yoghurt machine upstairs was not frozen ( watery) and there was a sour milk smell. I did report, and the staff were quick to act on. However every other part of evening was perfect, with great hosting and crayons provided on request for the young children.

exceptionally busy, but staff were polite and ensured that we were their priority that we would be seated asap. We noticed how clean it was kept(including toilet facilities) considering how busy it was. A slightly longer wait for food than normal, but that was not a problem for us. It arrived hot and scrumptious so it was ideal. We were offered more drinks and chips/garlic bread if required by attentive staff.

this was my first ex-peri-ence of takeaway service, and highly recommended. I hadn't ordered in advance, or online, just popped by un-announced!
I was introduced to the new Nando's card with a full and easy explanation of its benefits and registration. job done! brilliant explanation given with a very positive attitude.

A lovely evening so we chose to dine al fresco under the patio heaters. Lots of new faces this evening, but still good service, polite and fast. We like Chelmsford for the ease of parking and friendly staff. Always find manager paulius welcoming although we I'd not see him this evening. A personal greeting, no matter how busy always makes us feel valued. Excellent as usual Chelmsford.

This Nandos in the centre of Chelmsford and close to the river and plague bridge has a courtyard where tables and chairs are set in the open air. The store spans over 3 stories with a till and service area on both ground and first floor surrounded by seating. The toilets which were tidy and spacious were on the second floor so requires a bit of a hike up to them.

This Nando's is located in Chelmsford town centre in the old Grays Brewery Yard, which is within the main shopping area. There's plenty of well sign-posted parking and I ended parking at the Meadows Short Stay (Surface) parking, which also has a multi-storey on it. These car parks charge a day rate between 7:30am-8pm of £1/1hr, £1.80/2hr, £2.60/3hrs - but if you're arriving after 8pm, a flat overnight rate of £2.50. They are just a few minutes walk to all the restaurants and bars etc.

We knew that to book a 50th Birthday Meal for my husband at Chelmsford was the best thing to do, and they certainly didn't let us down! We were a party of 12, aged 1-67, chicken lovers and veggies! Starting with olives, nuts and Livers, we then ventured on to the Chicken in variable levels of spicyness! accompanied with rice chips salad and sweet potato mash, something for everyone. We ordered a feast of dinners, and i don't know how we managed it, but we cleared the plates!

So I have been living in Witham (some 15 miles away) for a good few years now and having been to pretty much every Nando's in and around Essex this happened to be my very first visit.

Lovely busy atmosphere, with all staff working quickly and effectivly. An excellently managed team. Very warm welcome, and offered a table within minutes, considering it was exceptionally busy. Facilities clean, as was the rest of the seating area. mix of visitors from couples to groups, and all well accomodated for. I noticed a family of 4 with an infant carrier was given the most apprpriate table so they could have enough room to dine, while the tiny baby had room to snooze!

This Nandos has amazing service, just visit their facebook page (Nandos Chelmsford) and you will see just how much they go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure their customers are happy, with such offers as Student Mondays, Cinema Tuesdays and 'Burn the Bill' Thursdays, which consists of the staff offering random customers their meal on the house.

Chelmsford Nando's was the perfect location for the team's Thursday evening fix having just landed at Stansted airport. We were both aware of the exceptional reviews for this branch and were not to be let down. It had of course been nearly 2 months since our last visit together which meant there was slightly more pressure to please on this occasion.

Cock-a-doodle-delicious! Love the Chelmsford Nando's! Relatively new so everything looks modern and well decorated and the service is always so quick! I'm a huge mayonnaise fan too and whenever I request some mayonnaise they bring me a bowl of the stuff!! Chicken is always perfect, as is the customer service. Not one bad thing I could say!

Overall impressions are very impressive. Staff were very helpful and polite. Even offering table service. There is an Odeon cinema near by where i went and watched The lion Kind 3D, i was very full and satisfied and could enjoy the movie more. Train Station near by is chelmsford train station on dukes street. I parked in Tesco carpark as it is free for 2 hours maximum.
