Comments - Stand out in our weekly competition! What did you eat? Unique aspects? Parking/transport tips?: 

This store is a at a leisure complex with a whole host of Free parking though the section of parking outside of the store was particularly full. There is a Vue cinema, Hollywood bowl, Burger king, Harvester, Chinese, Frankie and Bennies, Chiquetos, Pizza hut and Bella Italia.

The store has a small piazza out the front by the window which has some seats around square metal tables with potted box hedging to help screen it from the car parking. When you enter there is a small double door system with a glass wall vestibule which will be a heaven send in bad weather to stop the dinners freezing every time someone opens the door. There are a few chairs on the right as you enter for take away customers to use.

The left of the store is faced with wooden planking the same as a circle in the centre of the ceiling. There are also lots of lights hanging down in large glass jam jar style jars. The toilets at the back were decorated with small dot black and white tiles.

The staff were all very friendly and did the essential checks of if food is ok, offering dessert and clearing plates and they all said good by as we left. They also checked what heat sauce my friend wanted on his Corn on the Cob, which is a good sign as I have never had a bad Nandos some where they have offered sauce on the cob. My chip portion was a good size and nice and hot and had a good generous splattering of peri peri salt. My rice was also very good. The chicken was well cooked and very succulent, the only let down to disappoint in this store was the very small portion of Chicken (or possibly quail based on its size). To quote my friend "I would have got half a chicken if I'd known a quarter could be this small" he had the leg quarter and it was equally small but likewise well cooked. My other friends Hot wings were very good but they are hard to go wrong with.

I would happily come back to this store but hope they have found larger birds for my next visit.
