Ordered a large takeaway from the new Swindon Branch (N308) and was served by Lilly, exceptional service and even allowed me to take a fist-full of ketchup sachets (rather than the token gesture 1-2) as my wife LOVES ketchup with her Nandos.
Keep up the good work!

I ordered online for take away. The website froze and subsequently double charged me. However the staff did notice check and sort this, after a 15 min at least wait. They were very kind about it all. Sadly the wait was long despite my advanced order as they were busting with business... much longer than just cooking chips. Which was further extended as they verified the double cost issue and then despite the good intention of making sure I had everything in the bag.

Only one Nando's in Swindon, and it was a long time coming! It's on a brand new development with a cinema and car park right next door, and also some other restaurants (won't say I didn't consider a GBK). The restaurant itself doesn't seem to have caught on just yet with the locals, since it was almost empty on a Friday lunch time. Any Nando's in London on a Friday lunch time is usually mobbed with workers looking to have a lazy afternoon before the weekend!

Waited more than 15 minutes for someone to turn up at our table - walked out after waiting 15 - told the staff that it was ridiculous to have to wait so long with 3 children - staff reaction was to laugh...unbelievable!

This new store in a leisure complex in Swindon alongside a Cinema and many other food outlets. There is a large expensive multistory car park attached, but if you arrive after 6pm you will find a lot of free parking around the nearby residential streets.

So on a visit to the home of Melinda Messenger, the band XTC, the Alexandra lighthouse and The Magic Roundabout - what better way to complete the visit than some chicken and chips??
