Edinburgh - Omni Centre - Blaynos Review
Was up in Edinburgh on a stag weekend and, having spent the entire train journey from London drinking, figured Nando’s would a good pre-dinner to start the weekend (it proved to be a smart tactic too). Looked at Google Maps and opted for the Omni Centre as it was just a few minutes walk from Waverley (as was Chambers Street, but that was nearer our hostel so would’ve been easier to visit during the weekend if time had prevailed).
Ordered via phone (internet not app) and was slightly irked to see there’d been a stealth price rise in a chicken burger and peri chips by 10p and that I’d have to pay 5p for a takeaway bag (clearly not an issue but I thought that food bags are free).
The Omni Centre itself is down a hill off Princes Street opposite a John Lewis. Plenty of other restaurants are in the building (I think a cinema was there too, memory a bit hazy). For a Nando’s constrained by the limits of a shopping centre, in terms of design, it stacks up quite well. Range of seating and tills are deep inside the restaurant allowing for queuing space, with space to sit for takeaway orders.
Wandered straight in and bypassed the queue to the tills and asked for my food, which came about a minute later. Chicken burger seemed a tad small (it was devoured in seconds) and the chips were good too.
