After a 40 minute drive through Slough traffic, finding a parking space right outside Nandos was just what we needed at 6.30pm on a Saturday! I have been to this Nandos many a time, we prefer this Nandos as its slightly bigger than the one near us and as we have a 10 month old baby , we find the space is much more comfortable for us and very accommodating.

We got there just after 9pm for a late evening dinner after a gym session. it's not lit up like other branches so we nearly walked right past it. We entered and there was a guy there to meet us straight away which was good, but then he tried to give us table 3 which was squished between a couple and their baby and a mother and son on the other side. We opted for table 7 instead which we later regretted because it is in direct path of the open door which at that time of night was not great.

had the hottest chicken, but still not hot enough! sweet potato mash was very lumpy. infact more lumps than mash. my fellow diner's chicken was very burnt on the wing tips. o and the toilets smell like damp underground toilets.

The main thing about this Nandos that made it stand out was the staff.
The guys there were funny, polite attentive and compared to other nandos where staff just take your order with a blank face this made a really refreshing change.
I have been here 3 times now and all 3 times the staff have been brilliant. They have engaged in banter and just been very nice to talk to.

This is my 100th UK Nando's store that I've been to and it didn't disappoint. The store is on the high street on the corner of The Grove where we were able to get free on street parking after 5pm. The store is under a modern building but is very well kept and painted on the outside and has a covering over the pavement around the perimeter.

There are three branches within walking distance of me. This is my favourite of the three. The atmosphere is the best of any Nando's I've been to anywhere.

Outrageously... having never been to Slough before, I find myself here twice in a fortnight?? This time, just a detour because the M40 was closed - so a good excuse for some chicken!

Loved the food.. Keep it Halal! Keep hearing rumours that many of the Nandos are not even Halal though they say they are.. know who's? Still love it all. Even the veggie options are good!

Slough's high street Nando's was the 19th Nando's to open in the UK, and notable for being the chain's first venture outside of the capital.

Not far from the free parking on the main shopping centre, the restaurant is situated beneath a typically slough-esque concrete office structure.

The place was pretty barren for a Saturday lunchtime, but that was good, as the service was lightning fast, and the food was exceptionally hot and spicy.

Looked SEXAY inside, the tribal theme and rail way beams dotted around really make the place stand out. THERE IS A CINEMA NEARBY! Perfect Place! The train station is just down the high street too.

Really pleased with my local Nandos. Staff are always pleasant and food is always of a really great standard, although there has been the odd occasion it has taken a while.
