Stopped into this new Nando's at about 9pm on a Saturday night, so it was pretty quiet. It's on the Inverness Retail and Business Park, which also houses a Vue cinema and many other shops and eateries. Parking is free and plentiful and Inverness train station is the nearest, just over a two mile walk away.

It's a pretty large restaurant, catering for many groups. There's a mixture of larger circular tables, large square booths and also six/eight seater high tables. At the very back as you go towards the toilets is another little seating section too. The whole ceiling is clad with wooden angled strips, with the funky lighting hanging from this. This is in the style of spinning discs, Chinese lanterns and others. Towards the back of the restaurant is a separating wall between the serving hatch and the seating which is a bright yellow criss-cross structure. There are also lots of large canvas paintings on the walls. Toilets are a little plain, being nearly completely grey. Very good.

Staff were pleasant and the food came in just under ten minutes. I was claiming a free whole chicken and had it with chargrilled veg, chips and rice. The chicken was succulent and well-cooked but could have done with being a bit saucier. The chips were plentiful and hot and crispy - with the rice being an average size and warm enough. The veg was plentiful too. Overall, a good visit.
