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

Have stopped off at this Nando's a few times on my back from up North. It's located on a huge complex that also has an Xscape and a cinema onsite. There's some other fun things within the same building such as Cosmic 3D crazy golf, which - I don't care how old I am - was good fun! :-) The parking is free and there are thousands of spaces.

I had my first unusual shock at this Nando's... on one of my visits I was told there was no chicken on the bone! The ovens had broken and only things that could be purely grilled were available. On this occasion the food was terrible. I had a chicken breast burger and it was the driest piece of meat I think I've ever had... but - the next couple of times the staff here made up for it. Hot piping chicken with plenty of sauce. An average of a 3 though.

Each time I've visited there's never been a wait for a table and about a 10 minute wait for the food.
Very high ceilings allowing some interesting artwork to be put in all the space available - as there's not too much wall space around. One side is all windows that look out over the car park, the other is the entrance, the other a staircase to the toilets and then the checkout on the other wall.

Definitely one to visit - just to see all the activities on offer inside the complex - and so long as the ovens are working!
