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

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!

Staff were rather average, but the food came quickly, and was my second excellently rated Nando's food of the week. The wrap was expertly prepared, with huge amounts of sauce dripping out, and the single breast distributed equally throughout. The chips were also very good, but could have done with a little extra peri salt to get a 5/5.

I'd definitely return to this Nando's next time I'm in the area!
