We had a disappointing experience from a staff member called Georgina tonight in Nandos. My daughter's favourite dessert is naughty natas. When we asked this staff member she told us very abruptly that they don't have any left and walked away. The way she behaved was unprofessional so I decided to ask another member of staff and she brought me the natas in 2 minutes.
We left nandos feeling angry about Georgina's attitude which spoiled our evening.

A quick in-and-out for late lunch was in order, and this Nando's was just around the corner from the University. Parking was effortless on the leisure complex, and I was soon seated in this sparsely populated setting.

As expected, the food came within minutes of my return after ordering, and the wrap and rice were very tasty. I left with no complaints whatsoever, and will likely pop back in next time I have a meeting at the University!

Well, luckily for me this Nandos is a 7/8 minute walk from my house however based on an industrial estate there is also lots of free parking. Also (very) nearby is a cinema (although as Cinema's go its pretty expensive... go to Savoy on Derby road for half the price :P). Been to this Nandos quite a few times and never have any issues, lovely staff, quick food, sometimes a little busy but most the times its super.

This Nandos was extremely busy with a half an hour+ wait time however it was 5pm on a Saturday. This Nandos is situated around other restaurant such a Frankie and Benny's with the showcase cinema on its doorstep. Also in the area bowling/quasar. If you are looking for a Nandos away from the city centre then this is ideal with free parking. Plus due to the cinema and other restaurants the car park is huge.

Worst Nando's I've been to. I've done many visits in the last year and the vast majority of times the chicken has been dry and burnt. A couple of times it was fine, but very very inconsistent.

Another major complaint is that takeaway orders would take an unacceptable amount of time. I would arrive at the restaurant, my food would be READY and sitting under the heater, but they wouldn't hand it to me for about 15-20 minutes. Pretty terrible service in that respect.

Well, after a nice little half marathon, what better way to re-fuel than with some chicken and chips? Being in Nottingham, it was a great excuse to mark off one of the few Midlands branches I haven't been to and seeing as though I had a beautiful gift card from the RYN team as well, it would have been rude not to! RYN are fuelling my running :-)

A bright colourful store close by to the University and next to the cinema, bowling and quazar. Free car park right outside.
The till area is to the left as you enter and the seating and booths are set round a central feature. Patio doors and a outside seating are are to the right.

A great branch, the few times i've been the staff have been lovely. Situated next to a cinema and free parking. Can't ask for much more!

There is a cinema next door so if you go on a Wednesday or Sunday, its likely to be mega mega busy.

Not that convenient for most students unless you have a car. Next to showcase cinema and Isis nightlclub / Senoritas pole dancing club depending on what night of the week you favour.
