As a regular Nandos visitor (around 3 times a week, genuinely think I have an addiction I need to address) this was a great trip. We were greeted by 'Cal' who is always super friendly and smiley when we visit. Then we were seated and served by Simon. We had a slight problem with our table as it was super busy and people had moved tables so we had to wait a few seconds for it to be sorted. Simon was super apologetic and gave us some super lovely service because of this.

Was served by a very friendly/happy boy (believe his name was Cal/Callum). Great service, super helpful! Been served by him a few times and always a delight. Is he single?! Lol!

I have been a regular customer to Nandos for over 5 years now and never get tired of it. My go to meal is a half medium chicken with spicy rice and corn on the cob. My only complaint is the inconsistent sizes of the chicken and how sometimes it can be barely coated in periperi. The service in Norwich is always welcoming with friendly members of staff checking up on our table more than once. Nandos offers a variety of taste and it definitely lives up to its 'cheeky' reputation.

Having secured tickets to BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend, the only decision to make hinged upon take-away or eat-in with time not on our side after the drive from London. We opted for a take-away and so we called the restaurant when we were half an hour away and put everything through.

Butterfly chicken burger, hot.
Frequent visitor to our that nandos, food slightly below expectation for today, strange because they were so quiet. Usually very satasfying though.
Would always recommend nandos

We were welcomed and taken to a table by a waiter named Will, he was polite and friendly. Once sat down he asked us if we'd been to a Nando's before, recommended dishes to try etc.

The girl that was serving me didn't even look at me whilst I was ordering. She seemed to pre-occupied looking out the window and looking to see if anyone was staring at her. This put me right off and instantly in a bad mood! I am a student, paying my money in this place! The food was lukewarm... such a disappointment. Usually I would take it up with them, but I chose to leave it s said girl was RUDE!!!!

After scattering themselves pretty evenly around the country (with a concentration in London), Nando’s opened up two restaurants back-to-back in a fairly small city. We had a walk about after Riverside, giving our hunger time to reload. The Norwich Red Lion restaurant is situated further from the station and among the high street shops.

Got into Norwich at about 8pm with the intention of only fitting in one Nando's... but I managed to squeeze both of them in :-) It was still about 20 degrees in the evening and really muggy... so what better way to call down than a nice Extra Hot chicken!?
