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

I agreed to go on an unexpected trip to Villa Park to watch Championship football for the first time ever on the condition that a visit to a new Nando's occurred on the way up to Birmingham and Rugby Nando's was the obvious choice given its vicinity to the M6 and plethora of free parking spaces right outside.

This Nando's was opened just over a year ago and it shows! It's very bright and there are various shiny decorations hanging from the ceiling which give it a pleasant feel. There was no queue to order as it was around 5:30 on a Tuesday and the food arrived within five minutes which was wonderful. My half chicken was covered in sauce and a decent size, but the lack of peri salt was mildly frustrating, as was the size of the plastic containers of mayonnaise!

The new vusa peri sauce was a big hit for me and I have to say it's probably the spiciest sauce I've had at Nando's. When I mixed it with mayo, it wasn't as tasty as the usual extra extra hot sauce, but the sauce on its own had a real kick and was certainly a welcome addition.

This was a very fast and enjoyable Nando's and the staff were very attentive, too. I can only fully recommend Rugby Nando's and Aston Villa managed to get the win to round off a great day!
