Chip spilling disaster! It seems any meal that came with chips lost a few on it’s way to our group.

Otherwise it was pretty much what you would expect for a Sunday Nando’s. Good food, good time had by all.

We come in to smiling host chicks ready to sit us down at whichever seat we like. We already know what we'd like to order so go straight to the welcoming till chick to give our requests and orders. Finally the food came, and the server chicken gave me my Veggie beanie wrap with garlic bread and rice: Deeeeeelicious! My friend got half a chicken which fell off the bone, so another very happy chick.

just want to say i had a very good experience when i came for a meal with friends to Nandos in Spinning fields. I was served by a really lovely and friendly young lady, didnt manage to catch her name but she was wearing glasses and had long beautiful brown braids. I hop your team member is found and praised accordingly. she was very friendly and entertaining while we waited for our food. The standard of service was amazing and she is a very valuable asset to your team.

The standard half chicken medium sauce and chips with garlic bread. Small restaurant but in great location. Short walk from the tram stop or the cinema so great after watching a film

Having visited Spinningfields before, and not having a great time, it was time to give it another whirl. I entered, abd was immediately greeted by a Nandoca, who put us in a booth on the right hand wall. We were one of two sets of diners in the outlet at this point. After staring the menu down, I went to order. It was quite a simple ordering process, interrupted by a sneezing fit of mine, the Nandoca managed well and saw me right!

Last but not least, Spinningfields and I was glad to get this one over with. I even got a favourite off Spinningfields on twitter as I checked in there which was pretty cool.

I had the butterfly chicken with Peri chip, garlic bread and a perinase. The staff was friendly. I would say arrive by public transport as parking isn't ideal in this location.

Lunch is not complete without a trip to Nandos, and this time it was Spinningfields that took the turn. You enter the restaurant in to a nice big heater, which is essential considering it's Manchester and it always rains. The resturaunt is open plan, a bit dull in terms of decor (maybe made worse by the dull Manchester weather), however has a large number of tables to feed peri-peri diners.

We were the first people in the restaurant at 11.30 on a gloomy Monday morning in need of a quick Nando's fix at my 120th different UK Nando's but that did not quite go as planned.

Having eaten only once at nando,s Leeds before i knew i would be catered for being coeliac, however, the attention i got from Colin the waiter was exceptional. Not only had he had the correct training, he instantly produced a list to show me exactly what the ingredients were in each and every item. The food was superb, i have even started buying Nando,s sauces from my local Asda.

This store is in the posh and swanky area of Spinningfields, I had a little problem to find it at first as was expecting it to be on the main street but it was down a side road and once spotted it is was very obvious. There are local upmarket shops to choose from but i think mostly it will serve the local banking and business community.

I like the interior of this one. Not the greatest of experiences but can't put my finger on why. However, it's a very nice one indeed and would go back anytime.

I always feel welcome at Spinningfields. When I arrived the tables outside were full, and once we got inside it was the same. We had a 15 minute wait to be seated - we were offered outside seating after 10mins but declined this.

After winning a very generous voucher from a competition on facebook, we went for a meal platter with starter and 2 desserts. The place was very busy as it is in Manchester City Centre at lunchtime it is to be expected. We were seated within 5 mins as I had my little boy who was provided with some crayons and activities to do. After ordering, we were advised that there would be a 20 min wait as was so busy however the food was less than 10 mins.

Popped into the Spinningfields Nando's (in the Spinningfields complex of buildings/offices, so many eateries, high-end shopping outlets next to it) - and was pleasantly surprised with this one!

Just off Deansgate, so very close to car parks/train stations etc... Very relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, quick service, clean toilets, and above all else, great food!
