Additional Comments - This will make you stand out in the competition! Unique aspects? Student discounts? Parking tips?: 

An easy to find Nando's in a small outside retail complex. Parking is free and right outside, though you may have to tip someone for watching your car while you eat.

Overall this was probably the best Nando's I have been to in South Africa! The decoration felt newer, and staff and service were above average for a change. The menu also had more options than I've seen before, with feta cheese being a unique (and very tasty) option for burger/pitta/wrap filling. My wrap was far superior to the one I had two days ago at Epson Downs, with chicken filling it to the brim, loads of Extra Hot sauce, and cheese covering all parts - delicious! Chips were still small, though that just seems to be how it is here, and peri-salt was on the table which is a great touch.
