Comments - Stand out in our weekly competition! What did you eat? Unique aspects? Parking/transport tips?: 

Mango and Lime Chicken wings with rice and coleslaw, rest of party had burgers
The cutlery was extremely dirty and even when we went and changed it, it was all as bad, greasy and caked with dried on food. We asked for more forks as the container was empty and these were just as bad.
This was not what I would expect from anywhere and even though we enjoy eating at Nandos I doubt we will visit again.

Baig is a handsome worker who is very helpful and cheery he makes me feel like im at home eating in my own kitchen. He made me feel very welcome and he is always running around the restaurant with a smile on his face. He is a well spoken lad with lots of enthusiasm. However i had to wait atleast 45mins for my food and received it at 7:50 keeping in mind that Nandos shut at 8:00.

I ate the ceasar salad with medium chicken and it was amazing! My husband had the prego steak roll and he said it was lovely, would definitley go again! Brill experience! The staff where all lovely, the girl at the till was very helpful as we had never been before, she explained the menu thoroughly to us to make sure we properly understood, she also didnt rush us, even though there was a queue she helped me make the right decision about what i wanted! Very helpful!

My extra hot chicken was bland after waiting half an hour for it and the cobwebs hanging off the lights were quite disturbing!!

This was a quick in-and-out visit so I won't go into too much detail (see fellow Nandoer reviews below).

Burnley away was not a fixture to be missed and this was the closest Nando's to the ground believe it or not! A pre-match chicken fix was in store after a relatively pleasant 3-hour drive north. We did come across some football traffic in Preston given Deepdale is just across the road from the leisure park and we arrived just after 2pm.

I ate everything. Absolutely everything. And the best bit was, I could eat it all again... Everything was so good and perfectly cooked... I visit every Tuesday afternoon as a break from uni and I can see myself visiting every Tuesday for the next 3 years. Time after time I am greeted with a smile not just from one staff but from all and am recognised immediately and given warm welcomes and friendly banter is exchanged. A quality place to go with brilliant staff and food to match!

This store at the Deepdale shopping centre is on the outskirts of town but benefits from masses of free parking around it and has the competition of KFC, Greggs, McDonalds, Costa and Subway around it.

The day of my visit they were suffering from severe traffic jams due to nearby roadworks.

Very dissapointing visit.
Unwell 2am the morning after vommiting diarrhoea. My daughter awoke 6am vommiting and diarrhoea.
Will not visit again. The staff are young and immature they lack mature direction, staff more interested in staff rota (being completed in restaurant area with dirty used plates under the table).
Please complain if you suffered any of the above symptoms from previous visits or on the above date.

This was my first visit to this Nando's, which I think was opened quite recently (last year or so).

The branch itself wasn't the biggest, and my friend and I were originally seated within elbow touching distance of a couple on the next table before we moved. So would be quite cramped if the branch was full, but a nice atmosphere during our visit.

Food was served very quickly, within about five or six minutes of sitting down, impressive for peak time when half busy.

Hair in the rice.

Table cleaned twice, still dirty/sticky.

burger for 8 pound the size of a golf ball, came out on large plate on it's own(i would call it a starter!)

definately overpriced for what u get.

hot glasses, no ice.

waiting on staff(children!) pretty useless.

Only good part about the experience is that the manager was very apologetic and gave us a full refund.

Will not be going back though.

Second Nando's of the day on this sunny Bank Holiday Monday :-) Dinner time now though, so get that half chicken on order.

This Nando's is located on the large Deepdale Retail Park (about half a mile from the football stadium) which is home to lots of large outlets, such as Toys Am We, Argos, M&S etc and other eateries like KFC. Hundreds (maybe a thousand) free spaces right outside, so all good there.
