This Nando's is located inside the re-branded Soar (previously Xscape which the brown road signs still refer to it as), which together with Intu Braehead, form a very large leisure/retail park. Across the two sites (which are five minutes walk from each other), you can shop and eat at just about every chain going and have fun at an Odeon Cinema, a Bowplex, Laser Station, climbing walls, crazy golf and the Snow Factor (snow slope). It's within easy reach, just off J25A/26 of the M8. Nearest train station is Hillington West, which is a two-mile walk away.
Parking: 
There are thousands of free spaces across the whole complex.

Onto my second Nando's of the hour... I had spent 6 hours going up and down a freezing Ben Nevis, so an additional helping of peri-peri was needed to warm the ol' cockles!

I would like to comment on my favourite aspect of a visit to Nandos...the naughty nata to conclude a delicious meal. Having eaten these custard tarts in the country of their origin, Portugal, and from numerous bakeries, I can conclude that the Nandos version is still the best I have ever tasted and still my all-time favourite. Nandos - the place of perfect breasts, thighs, legs...and tarts!!! : )

This store at the Xscape ski and leisure centre has a wealth of free parking around it. There is a fake snow ski slope here along with a climbing wall, cinema, bowling centre and a wealth of other activities and restaurants. The store is at the back of the centre and has spilled out onto the corridor though the windows at the front rimmed off by some banners, However it is dark dingy and bleak out in the corridor, plagued by loud noise and people walking past.

Once again the real impressive thing was that a number of different staff looked after us during our visit and they all seemed to be able to pick up the batton with no real hesitation. I would also compliment them by saying that it would not be easy to split the staff into levels of seniority as all staff have a basic level of customer service and operational issues that are 1st class. Well done guys!

Have now visited this Nandos several times and is definately the best i've been to. Staff are always friendly, food is always tender and cooked to perfection and service is always beyond reproach. Will definately be a frequent visitor to this branch for a long time to come.

Lets think... what is there to do nearby... There's the snowzone, the mall, the snowyplace, the cinema, the indoor snow slopes, laz0rstation, and that place where snow falls... Nando's Xscape even has a place to park your board and skis!!!

The original and best Nando's in Glasgow- I am a proud addict. However, recently portion sizes seem to have got smaller and needs more sauce but this doesn't seem specific to this branch. Still can't put me off returning.

Wow the friendliest staff ever! After going mainly to Nando's in London and the Midlands this seemed like a breath of fresh air. They were delighted to help and incredibly polite. Shame the food took around half an hour. However, nicely furnished and located in the Xscape complex that has pretty much every leisure activity you can imagine...ski and snowboarding slope, cinema, minigolf, shops, almost every major restaurant chain, and more...

Yes, the Odeon cinema is right up stairs which offers student discount and there is a great bus service and free parking!!
