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

Another pre-match Nando's was in store after a 3 hour to Swansea from north-west London. Parking was £1 an hour in the nearby car park.
We hoped that the lunch time rush would be calming down by 2.40 but we were wrong! It was a 15 minute wait for a table for four which gave us lots of time to take in the décor on my first visit to a Nando's outside England. It's a square layout with various pieces of artwork on the left and right and an impressive middle area scattered with pots and plants. The tills and grill are towards the back on the left so that is where we headed on being given our table and the food took around 20 minutes to arrive as expected since the restaurant was at full capacity.

The food was decent but not quite spicy enough for my liking. The halloumi cheese was grilled to perfection and there was plenty of peri salt on the chips. I'm sure speed of service would improve massively at less busy times but that was the only real issue with this visit.

Arsenal beat Swansea and my 115th Nando's has been conquered. Great day and hopefully I'll be back next season!
