Decided to tick off the second last North East Nando's that I needed to visit, and Silverlink (North Shields) was the place. After a fairly pleasant drive, I arrived at Silverlink, and found the Nando's.

Entering the outlet, all I could think was WOW. The decoration here is spectacular, but more on that later! I was quickly seated by the helpful Nandoca, who showed me to Table 3, on the right hand side of the outlet, by the window.

After pondering the menu and the decor, I went to place my order. I waited a short while at the tills before I was served, and was seen by a delightful Geordie lady who took my order with no sweat. After the order had been taken, I returned to my table.

I waited around 10 minutes for the meal to arrive, and it was quite good! I only ordered small so that I could enjoy endless amounts of Toffee Apple frozen yoghurt after, and I could squeeze in a second Sunday Nando's. I ordered three chicken wings with a side salad, and a frozen yoghurt. The wings were incredibly tender, that the chicken just fell off the bone. Wonderful. The salad was crisp and fresh. Delicious. Gobbled down, it was time to Fro-Yo. Delicious. Never knew Toffee Apple could taste so obscure! Overall an excellent meal.

The outlet is split in two. The entrance is central, and as you enter, you face the tills and grill. There are seating areas to the left, and the right, both featuring their own drinks, sauces, and cutlery areas. The right hand side is slightly smaller than the left, and as such the left is the only one to contain the Fro-Yo. The decoration is brilliant here. The wall above the grill and tills is grey, with the story of Barcello adorned across it. To the left and right, the wall slopes in to the outlet, to the roof, and is adorned by weathered coloured discs, which are pinned to the wall. The ceiling itself slopes down towards the grill, and is wood effect. Hanging from the ceiling is some rather elegant lighting, with each bulb covered by a different colour net bag. The walls are red wood, bordered by grey bricks, which really does look jazzy. On the walls are some abstract art pieces, which again look wonderful.

The outlet is located on the Silverlink retail park, next to Odeon cinema. A large free car park is provided, for visitors to the retail park. Other shops here include M&S, Next, PC World, and Poundland. Other eating establishments are also available. The retail park is next to the A19 (North Sheilds) and Tyne Tunnel. It can also be reached by bus, on the Silverlink bus, operated by Go North East.

Overall a great little outlet, which really does have some spectacular decoration. Meal was good, staff very friendly. Overall, a very good visit, and would come here again!
