It was my birthday i had been treated horribly by a different restaurant which resulted in us walking out. We had booked the table to the restaurant we shall not name for 7.30. We had waited at that restaurant from 7.15 until 8.30 as they refused to sit us all down until everyone had arrived. By 8.15 when everyone has arrived they told us it would be another 30-45 minutes wait until we could be seated at a table.

Manchester Fort has got to be one of the bet nandos ive been too. The staff couldnt be any nicer even when they walked past they had a smile on there faces. The food was cooked to perfection, and was very fast service. They had us seated as soon as we walked threw the door. I really enjoy my visit to nandos manchester fort every time i go.

This Nando's is located on the Manchester Fort complex and is home to large retail outlets such as Argos, Next, Sports Direct and other eateries including Subway and Pizza Hut. If you're travelling by car or walking, head for post code M8 8EP. There are hundreds of free parking spaces on the complex so great. If you do walk (as I did), it's only a mile from Victoria station/metrolink so will easily take less than 20 minutes.

The staff here were amazing, very friendly and polite, looked happy in their work.
The Manchester Fort is not in one of the nicest places of Manchester but the atmosphere in the restaurant was great.
Good work, hope to visit soon xx

We visited the Manchester Fort branch 3 weeks after it was opened and were very impressed overall.
We had issues finding the branch as our TomTom could only lead us to the road rather than the retail park itself. Make sure you know where you're going before you set off! The good thing is that once you arrive, parking is free and right outside. There are various shops in the vicinity such as Argos, Game, PoundWorld, Boots and Thorntons.
