A post race meal needed after the half marathon, so it made sense to eat at The Leisure Exchange Nando's!

Arrived here just after 12pm on Sunday and there was only a couple sets of people eating, so almost the whole restaurant to myself and the food came in just under 10 minutes. Staff were pleasant enough too.

Being at The Leisure Exchange, it means there is plentiful parking. The Leisure Exchange has over 1000 spaces priced reasonably at £2.20/2hrs, £3/4hrs, with 24hrs/£4 (Mon-Sat) and Sunday a £3 flat fee. Just next to this is also George Street car park (which is where I parked) as this is only £2.50 for 24hrs. There are a number of reserved spaces Mon-Fri between 7am-9pm however so this may get busier during the week. Both Bradford Interchange and Bradford Forster Sqaure train stations are less than half a mile walk away.

The Leisure Exchange plays host to a Cineworld, a Hollywood Bowl and a Grosvenor Casino - and the National Media Museum is less than half a mile away.

This Nando's is the older of the two and, although very clean, was quite standard in its decor. As you enter, to your right there are some booths and a few additional booths right at the back - but then generally all tables/chair and table/bench seating in a bit open plan square arrangement. There are plenty of full length windows letting in plenty of light during the day and then a few carvings/plates and a couple small canvases on the walls.

The food was delicious too and such a nice change to the meal the previous night. It was nicely coated in sauce and well cooked throughout - nice bit of charring on the outside and piping hot and moist meat right to the bone. The chips were hot and crispy and the rice was hot and moist too. A very nice meal indeed.
