I had an chicken burger medium with extra mayonnaise and no tomato with creamy mash as a side. I had one perinase and a nice glass of wine. My burger was tender and juicy with the mayonnaise and my mash tasted delicious with my perinase. It tasted so good and this is why I visit you once a weekend!

Friendly staff amazing. I get on well with them as I'm there frequent customer!!

The host who invited me in and showed me to my table made me feel very welcome. My food was served to me immediately and one of the workers if I remember correctly his name was Ali, continuously asked me if I was okay which made me feel happy. Overall it was a wonderful experience as usual I will off course come back.

Most welcome as I had been working outdoors in blazing sunshine all day - six and a half hours stilt walking for the opening ceremony of the King Richard III Visitor Centre and Oh boy did I need the refillable drinks! Rhona made the most of the frozen yoghurt machine (Strawberry flavour, she prefers Strawberry and Cream).
Food and atmosphere just as we like them, excellent as always.

Nando’s #79 brought us back to the centre of Leicester, among the shops and pubs on Granby Street. There are several paid parking options nearby. Unfortunately, we chose to go with the most expensive (£12.10 for 4 hours). The restaurant itself has a very generic high street Nando’s feel, with the welcome addition of some large, brightly-light booths. Being Saturday afternoon on a high street, the place was about 75% full, mostly with families.

Both NCPs in town were extremely expensive so you're better off finding off street parking if you can or going there by bus if local. Easy to find, went there for my birthday on the way down from Nottinghamshire, it was very easy to find in the middle of the shopping district.

Sat in Nando's with half the big front windows open and the Caribbean Carnival passing by - does it get any better? 

 

Yes, when the Nando's chicken gives you a big hug on the pavement!

This is our least favourite of the four Leicester Nando's. We have had second-rate service in the past. It was OK today and we are hopeful that it will continue to improve, following a change in the management. That was why we went today. It is our intention to return in a couple of weeks’ time to see if there has been an improvement.

Right in the heart of leicester it takes a bit of knowledge to work your way through the traffic system to get to the store as sat nav was confused, but once there, there is some parking albeit expensive right outside the store which was suitable for our minibuses. think it was about 2 quid for an hour.

The last of the Leicester Nando's visited today - and I arrived there at about 6pm. I was already parked in the cultural quarter car park (which is quite expensive) so had soaked up a little more of the Asian food festival after my Nando's at Highcross!

The area of Granby Street was quite nice. Plenty of shops around on the high street and surrounding areas and other eateries and pubs dotted about.
