Alway's a great Nando's experience at Portsmouth. Often go with good Hockey friends and the service is always excellent. With the upstairs extension, the waiting for a table time has decreased in recent years and the meal will often beat you back to your table!

I love this Nandos! The staff are always friendly and quite often recognize me and my friend. We get the cheeky 'oh it's you again' smile a lot. Service is always fast and food is always of good quality. The only downside is the portion size of the chicken. For the price you pay I feel it should be bigger. I always get Chicken Pita and am always disappointed by the size. Luckily, the value of your frozen yoghurt makes up for it. It's my favourite part!

Had some time to kill whilst we were waiting for a ferry to Isle of Wight, knowing there is no Branch on the island we desperatly sought out the Portsmouth restaurant so we could get our Nandos fix before we crossed. No way i could go without Nandos for a full week. I would be swimming across in a hunger rage if i had to go "COLD CHICKEN". Great restaurant by the way, staff were great.

The staff were fantastic when seating all of my friends for my annual birthday meal at Nando's we had a couple of round tables next to each other so we were all still able to interact :P

I was introduced to nando's last year. I have been there well over 50 times. The food serve in Portsmouth gun wharf quays is always of an admiral standard. I prefer the extra hot and as this weekend was no exception I smashed in a whole chicky and fries. So happy to experience it every time. I wouldn't go back to any other restaurant for chicken ever again.

Very friendly staff as always, seated immediately. Food well prepared. Only draw back is long walk to toilets which are upstairs and a little cramped. Especially like the seating area outside which is great to use whilst waiting for your mates.

I had a wonderful time at this branch, I've been there and to the Southampton branch a few times. The food is always fast and at a good standard. The only thing that left me a little annoyed was the fact that there were no sauces or vinegar, everything was pretty much being used by others. So more access to the sauces would have been better. We eventually were able able to get our hands on the Garlic sauce but that's all.

I have been to quite a few branches and Portsmouth is my personal favourite. The atmosphere is great, the restaurant is pretty big so there is plenty of seating and you have alot of room, the decoration is nice and modern and has a relaxing feel to it.

Popped into Portsmouth on the way back from a week on the Isle of Wight... no way to get to Nando's unless you take a ferry back to the mainland - the torture! So, needless to say, anything with peri-peri slapped on it would have tasted delicious - but luckily it was chicken :-)

A nicely decorated Nando's in the new Gunwharf Quays developement. Service is generally slow with a large backlog of orders waiting to be taken out. This doesn't usually affect the taste but don't expect to be in and out quickly.
