Parking was fine and the food was amazing halal meat would come again. Jacques was great and very polite I would recommend to family and friends. Great service.

I use this Nando's as it's halal and the only one in Leeds. I cannot fault the staff it was very busy at the time I and my family visited they got the customers through as quickly as possible. The problem I had the quality of our food the chicken was on the skinny side compared to the halal chicken I purchase at any of my local butchers.

Lunch time beaconed, and Nando's Cardigan Fields was to be the location. Situated on the outskirts of Leeds, it is one of the more difficult branches to reach.

Relatively easy to get to from Leeds town centre, you can either take a number of buses, 33a, 757 to Burley Park, or a single stop on the train for £2.90, four minute journey. Then it was a ten minute or so journey by walk. But you could drive, it's in a leisure park with Hollywood bowls which we tried afterwards and other restaurants if it's too busy to wait.

This store is a bit out the way from the city centre, but as I had travelled to Leeds without my car I discovered it is on several main bus routes. The complex contains a cinema, a Hollywood bowl, the new Control night club, a gym and several other food places for which there is a multitude of Parking spaces.

Torrential downfall of rain, but the indie girl serving made up for it by breaking with convention.... My usual trick is the "melted cheese option", in which they test health and safety... she said she couldn't give melted but the Grilled Halloumi Cheese would be a wonderful match with the Garlic Bread...
Mind Blown.
Fantastic Stuff, although a little out of town... Not really their fault :)

This Nando's in on the Cardigan Fields retail park, which is a few miles north-west of Leeds City Centre. The retail park has a Hollywood Bowl, a Vue, a Virgin Active and a whole host of other eateries (such as Frankie and Benny's and Pizza Hut). It's easily found in the car and there are hundreds (if not thousands) of free parking spaces on the park - but at this time of night, it did involve driving round a few times to find a free space.

Your chicken is normally the highlight of any visit to nandos, however on this occasion it was Hannah. What a beauty, I guess you could say she puts the chick in chicken.

the bloke at the door was friendly, we had a wait and he told us the aircon was broken, but tried to do everything for us. the lady at the ordering point was exceptionally rude. constantly talking to the guy next to her rather than taking an interest in what we wanted. food was really really lovely though.

Parking can be difficult as the centre is usually packed but free. Bowling, cinema and pubs are all nearby.
