No queue outside this branch and no queue inside which was great considering the waiting time at the other Scouse Nando's branch. As you enter, you step down into the restaurant which has seats off to the right underneath the stairs which leads to a 1st floor area with more seating but I can't remember if there is a second till area. On the left as you enter are a few 4 seater booths which leads to the door to the toilet which is down in the basement.

First Liverpudlian Nando's, and likely to be my last as a Northerner. Entered, and was shown to a table, and pondered the menu. After deciding, I went to order. The Nandoca was ever helpful and navigated the order with great ease!

I went with my friend Jennifer on our lunch break which was 12-1pm. We both had chicken wrap with peri chips and garlic bread with a side of halloumi cheese. I could eat nandos every day of the week.

Drove up to Liverpool to watch the Reds take on Villa (the less said about that shambolic match, the better). Kick-off was at 5.30pm and we arrived into Liverpool city centre shortly after 2pm. We hadn't initially planned on eating specifically at Nando's but we parked in the Queen Square car park (£1.90 an hour, can be pretty twisty/narrow going up and down the levels) and when we exited into the pedestrian area, the smell of Nando's was unmistakeable!

Good delicious. Restaurant refurbish looked outstanding. And staff where extremely friendly, although it was quite busy our food was still served within 10 minutes. Thank you Nandos!! Much better than the store in Liverpool 1

This Nando's was very conveniently located given the Mariott hotel in Liverpool city centre is right next door. As I walked in with SVC, we were initially impressed by the décor but later had reason to change our minds. The downstairs area is spacious with funky seating, lighting and cooler, upstairs however was a sweltering furnace, the artwork was far from impressive and the sauce selection was depleted. Therefore an average of a 3.

After a sumptuous walk around Liverpool town centre, we easily found this location and with excitement and glee entered what could only be described as a fiery furnace of hell!

This store is in the heart of Liverpool right next to the Bus station and there is very limited on street short stay parking in some side streets, The store looks quite modern and nice from the outside but has the hindrance of stepped entry to the store which does limit the scope of visitors.

On my previous visit to Queen Square Nando's, the manager refused to accept a perfectly valid loyalty card, one that I later used in another restaurant. I tried to not let this jade my opinion on my second visit to Nando's 55.

This branch felt a bit run down, it doesn't really show what I've come to expect from the Nandos experience. Not much interaction from the staff.

We visited this branch while in Liverpool taking our daughter to Uni.

A bit odd this Nando's. It's in Queen Square which has a few other restaurants and pubs (a big Yates opposite Nando's for example) - but then there are also a lot of places closed down (such as The Rat and Parrot). From speaking to some of the locals - the "other" side of town by the Docks and Liverpool One is the better place to go now.

I love the music and atmosphere in nandos, it is always busy when we go but i enjoy the double chicken breast fillet burger with cheese chips and garlic bread in spice medium. I also love a combination of hot sauce and garlic sauce. I love coming to nandos on a fortnightly basis yum!

When I asked for a question to be repeated as I misheard as she spoke fast, and there was a bit of confusion with accents (we're from Essex, and was in Liverpool for a visit) she was very ignorant of this and carried on speaking exceptionally fast.

They had run out of chicken on the day and so we had to have burgers. They were burnt and small, afterwards I was starving!! Very poor.
