Meridian is - like most of the Leicester ones - exactly how one would like a Nando's to be.
Huge free parking straight outside the door, although the disabled parking is not the most convenient. I would reccomend walking disabled to use the parking that is towards the cinema, but if a wheelchair user, go for the ones near the bowling alley as the gradients are easier.

I had a churrasco thigh burger, medium which is pretty new to the menu and I always have to try anything new and ever since then I eat it every time I go, it's BEAUTIFUL. My girlfriend had chicken butterfly, medium which she also has near enough every time we go because she doesn't like bones so it's really good for her. It's always really quick to get served and the food is on the table pretty much always 5-10 minutes later sometimes less.

What better way to spend a late September afternoon than at one of the UK's top-rated Nando's and the KP Stadium to see your team win 5-2? The journey up to Leicester could have gone slightly more smoothly, but we arrived in good time nevertheless, and opted to combine a few tables in the outside area and lap up the sunshine.

Best part was the deco, really nice and modern. I have never been to a nandos and wanted to pick the right time to go as I heard so many people go on about it. So today was the day I was going just finished a game of bowling and thoght it would be great to lose my V. Sat down and didnt understand what we should have, the menu was confusing and didnt look asif there was a standard nandos fav to choses, we just olayed it safe and went for wings. They arrived and didnt think to much of them.

We ordered so much as my husband and I couldn't decide what we wanted. We had Hummus and red pepper dip to start. Then I has butterfly chicken (Hot) with Spicy rice and peri peri chips. Then my husband has Butterfly chicken (medium) with chips, coleslaw, garlic bread with cheese and corn on the cob! Yummy! Perfect service and the food was brill as always!

Excellent, as always.
Mango and Lime breast quarters, chips, etc, just as we like them.
Great atmosphere created by great staff who care about what they do.
Thoroughly recommended.

It gave us the energy to do our weekly shopping at Sainsbury's!

After a great trip to the cinema we were still a bit peckish so we decided to go to a different Nando's than usual. They were attentive to the needs of my lactose intolerant friend and my picky food tastes and were happy to rid of the tomato and mayo from my burger. By far the best Nandos in the country, of all the ones I have been to!!! 5/5

Food was fantastic, Was clean and spotless like a professional restaurant should be. You also have ease of parking and other facilities for a fun night as it's next to bars, bowling an a cinema. No wonder it's always my local nandos of choice! Also got my grandparents to be fully fledged nandoers too!

This restaurant is clearly a cut above the rest. The others in Leicester have been put to shame since Meridian opened.
I would truly recommend the high quality of food and service to absolutely anyone!

fantastic service and food, such a great place to relax and eat, the staff are very helpful for example when its really busy and one of the sauces you want isn't available they will always get you some from the back or find a bottle.
Great times

Had been out of the country and away from any chance of Nando's, so once I'd landed, what better excuse to go get one?? Seeing as though I am heading to Leicester to cheer on Di Canio's army, it seems fitting to go to Meridian.
