I haven't written a  review for a while, and I thought since I deleted all my Middlesbrough reviews for a job interview, I better write some new ones!

This was a dangerous trip to Nando's as my friend had a hospital appointment soon after so we had to hope our food would arrive fast!

We come to this nandos regularly and we love it! The service is always outstanding! Staff are friendly and helpful. They have us seated as soon as they can but its always worth the wait. A new nandos has opened in our local town but we still choose to travel to this location.

Had a quick visit to the local Nando's again, to enjoy another Churrasco Thigh Burger.

Entered and was seated straight away. Sadly I was seated in one of the tables which is tightly packed in the centre of the outlet. It really never seems to improve the seating here. Went to place my order, and waited quite a while to be seen. Order process was fine, returning to my table.

After a Nando’s drought of over two months, and three weeks of Lent, you’d think that any peri peri chicken at all would taste delicious. Middlesbrough Nando’s has proven otherwise.

Oh Nandos, yet again Middlesbrough fails to deliver. I read reviews on here saying the store is excellent, but sadly another visit that is quite far from it!

It was Thursday night, which meant it was time for the highly anticipated weekly trip to Nando's with Adam. We went a bit later than usual as I had some stuff to do beforehand, but nevertheless we made it with around 1 hour to go before the branch closed!

Had a great time. Went to the same Resteraunt two years ago and it was okay. This time we had a great time. Food was excellent the Resteraunt was very clean and friendly. Thanks especially to Craig Laura and Cassie who made it special.

Well, Middlesbrough, you disappoint again. For you Nandos virgins out there reading this, Middlesbrough is not the place to come and pop that Nandos cherry.

The visit to this Nandos was adverage. The welcome wasn't great, and simply called forward to my table by a bark and a hand gesture. The tables are quite close together in parts, however thankfully on this visit I was put on the outer edge of the restraint, rather than the middle. If you ever get placed in the middle, be prepared to get nocked quite a bit. The resturaunt was busy on this trip, and service about adverage. Food arrived and the portion size was quite small.

This store is part of a centre that also comprises of a Cineworld cinema and a gym, there is a very large car park which is next to it and behind the mcdonalds. The Store didn't look much from outside but was more impressive inside with a Portuguese colonial feel with wooden ceilings and white washed arches and a fair amount of artwork including an impressive wooden statue in the centre. The tables are placed very close to each other which makes it harder to get around the store.

It was Thursday night which for the last couple of months has been my weekly Nando's night. I usually go at around 9pm each Thursday evening with some friends including my good friend Adam.

Thursday August 1st 2013 was no exception apart from the fact Adam was not there however I knew he'd be enjoying the brilliance of Nando's down in London.

This Nandos is a winner. The staff were upbeat and welcoming, and the food was great. What was even more important to see was the array of seating the restaurant had. The restaurant had low seating with small intimate tables whilst having higher-up seating for bigger groups. This segregated the restaurant nicely, (e.g. do the double-daters want to be sat right next to a large group of 10 shouting boys?).
Parking nearby with several free spaces, and plenty paid parking areas.

I have visited nandos many times over the last few years and the food and service is always great, unfortunately I have recently discovered that my local branch serve halal meat which I find extremely disappointing and I will not be eating there again. I feel this should be more clearly stated in large letter on menus and windows as I have never notice anything in the restaurant to state this I only discovered this fact as a friend mentioned it so I did some research on it.

- Massive wait for both a table and for food,

- unhelpful staff. Had to yell to get attention of them to ask how long our table was going to be and how long our food was going to be as well! After waiting over half an hour for both!

- cold yet burnt side dishes, and very, very undercooked chicken!!

- because of the delay, we didn't bother complaining there and then because we were already late for our film!!

Went to this one a couple times while working in Middlesbrough and had one good experience and one bad experience.

Locals may know of more parking around, but I parked in Market Place car park from what I remember - and half of it was free and the other half was Pay and Display, so watch out for that if you park here. It was very cheap anyway and a very short walk to the restaurant.

It doesn't offer student discount, but the cinema complex is right next to the Nando's restaurant so it's very easy to get to. The train station is just 10 minutes away by foot and the car park has plenty of free car parking.
