Second Nando's in the UAE, and it was still a below average experience overall. Firstly I should say that unlike Australia, all the Nando's here are shiny and new, so decoration gets top marks, only missing out on 5/5 due to the location not being overly inspiring.

The food itself took around 20 minutes to arrive even though the restaurant was almost empty. I decided to go for a butterfly breast in order to get a good fill of chicken after the disappointing 'double' wrap yesterday. While the breast was quite big, it was over grilled and therefore burnt and dry. It was covered in a lot of sauce though; much more than we would get in the UK, so that redeems it half a rating point!

This was also the second time I ordered peri-chips but they arrived without peri. Soon rectified, but a bit disappointing.
