A cracking meal out with my wife and 3 children. The restaurant was busy, so initially suggested there would be a wait of up to 15 minutes, but with a little bit of friendly persuasion they allowed us to sit in a '4 seater' booth. We probably could have squeezed another small family in there, but regardless we were pleased to be seated!

Despite the restaurant being busy, it was tidy and clean-I expected it to be a little crazy at 5pm on the last Friday before Christmas in a busy shopping centre but the atmosphere was great. Some great Nandos style Christmas music kept the authentic feel while pointing us towards Christmas brilliantly.

With Nandos card in hand and a recently received gift card I soon ordered our food. On the order was a double chicken pitta with a side of PerPeri chips, and a Haloumi & Portabello mushroom wrap with coleslaw and chips. The children shared a portion of humus and bread and garlic bread between them - standard for them. I made use of a 'green reward' to pay for the starter. The staff member that served us was very helpful, and very friendly.

The food arrived between 10 & 15 minutes after order, and as always was delicious. It was the first time I'd had the chicken pitta-not being a fan of chicken on the bone, I typically have either the chicken wrap, the butterfly chicken, or the butterfly chicken burger. I often find them a little carb heavy so wanted to try something different.

The pitta was a welcome change-the chicken was hot and cooked to perfection. The chips were spicy and left me wanting more. I had several refills of my coke, which always feels satisfying, although Nandos is never the cheapest fast food free refill or not. As ever, MerryHill Nandos provided a great meal for the family and I. Well done to all who work there.
