So I've always tried to get to Slough since I heard there was a 2nd Nando's opened up there. It wasn't too hard to find, I just walked down from the top ohe high street from the first exit of the Queensmere shopping centre until I found it.

This store is on the edge of town square as part of the Queensmere shopping centre (though entered from the outside square not from within the centre) and neighbours onto the Empire cinema. I parked within the Queensmere multi-storey car park and had a short walk through the shops to get to the square. Parking is by timed card paid prior to exit and is free for the first hour and then a £1 for each additional hour up till a max of £5.

Seen straight away and given a choice of tables, which was nice! Couple of dirty tables nearby but it was lunchtime and all the staff were busy but they were cleared within five minutes of us sitting down which was more than fine.

Trainee staff at the tills were learning but being trained well and I'm happy to wait - we've all been there! - and the food was quick and absolutely delicious.

My son and I eat at Nando's about 2-4 times a week. Our meals are usually great.
Today my sons chicken was burnt, he is diabetic, so having waited longer than usual he had to start eating.
When I did speak to the manager Phoebe Mayo I was very disappointed at her attitude, very uncaring and also her dress attire.

If you're unlucky enough to be in Slough, then like me you'll head to a Nando's to take your mind off it. A half marathon in the morning, so what better way to store up the energy than with some chicken and chips?? :-)

I live in Slough & I have to say Nandos is the best restaurant to eat from!. If I could I would to there every single day!. It is in the town centre surrounded by Empire Cinema & many other retail stores. Location is just perfect!. The staff always welcome us with a friendly smile & it seems as though we are friends (due to the amount of times I go there, once I went 2 days in a row). After ordering the food it doesn't take long to arrive.

As a HUGE fan of Nando's I have to say I was very disappointed with this relatively new restaurant on a trip to slough visiting family.

This restaurant is more modern than other nando's I had been too with nice decor and features (but I missed the 'homely' feel of the other nando's). The toilets were dirty and out of paper, and all of the sauce bottles were sticky/greasey.

Now that this branch has been visited, we are only 15 reviews away from completing the UK mission! This trip down to Slough took place on a fine Sunday afternoon and the drive from North London was traffic free, it took around 40 minutes which isn't too bad. Parking in the Queensmere shopping centre is reasonably priced and numerous other outlets and restaurants can be found here.
