Lime Street - Harry David Tabik Review
As a city boy lunches are often something that you are treated to. The Lime Street Nando's was a treat to myself. Unfortunately the treat was more of a trick as I entered the over crowded, dark, dingy restaurant. The basement dining hall has crammed as many people in as possible and there is barely space to stretch out and eat. It wasn't even peak time. One benefit of being in a basement was that no natural sunlight meant you could have been anywhere. Anyone who has an active imagination could have been transported to Lisbon or Porto - not me however - I was in a basement near the office.
On to the food - I went for my usual butterfly chicken with mash and garlic bread - a dish I have found has served me well for a number of years. Unfortunately this wasn't the case and since then I have not ordered the dish. There was a lack of sauce which left me searching for a bottle to soak the dry chicken. The mash was as creamy as ever and the garlic bread slightly burnt. Not the best food that's for sure.
All I can say is that if you are desperately craving a Nando's and you are in the city Lime Street will do - it won't set the world or your mouth on fire in the blaze of peri-peri deliciousness we have all come to love but it will fill you up.
