Halal:

Nearby: 
Stockport Rail Station is just over a mile walk away
Parking: 
Located on the Peel Centre which has its own parking. "The main car park" (although there are no signs to say which is the main car park) closes at 9pm and doesn't re-open until 8:30am the next morning. How enforced this is - who knows. It has been noted that when leaving after 9:30pm, no gates or 'owt were shut. If diners do park, then it's £1/2hrs, £2/4hrs, £7.50 over this. Other options include Knightsbridge car park (free after 6pm) which is a few minutes walk down the road. There's also a Tesco and an Asda less than half a mile walk away, so diners may sneak in there for a bit.

Ordered a sunset burger with spicy rice and chips and a bottomless drink
Asked for a mild sauce and when the burger actually came it was plain which I didn't notice till I was half way through the meal
Staff member on till was quite blunt and not a happy and chirpy member like the rest of the team
Stood at door for a while waiting to be seated
All in all good quality food and service apart from them points

Absolutely cracking! Meg on the door (short hair) and will (tall) on the till. very friendly. Got told it was a 25 minute wait, but only took us 10 minutes. Food was getting turned over quickly and so were the tables. Didn't feel rushed to leave. Also got a lovely fairwell as we left, told us to enjoy the rest of our evening! Attention to detail, spot on.

Note that there are 2 free parking spaces right outside the restaurant, but you would have to be very lucky to get them!

The restaurant was surprisingly busy for mid-afternoon on a weekday, but everything went quickly and smoothly. The staff were polite and did their job well, and ordering was painless.

Arrive at Nando in theafternoon for a treat. It is at Peel Centre on Port Wood Street.

Situated in the retail park in Stockport. It's easy to reach by car or public transport.

This is my first time to dine here. Eventhough it is only 15 minutes from home by car.

Serving delicious lunch, snack and evening dinner. I am certain this Nando is on a winner.

Every Nandoca is polite, efficient and helpful. The store looks clean, tidy and delightful.

Me and my boyfriend both had the chicken butterfly and two sides each to takeaway the chicken was rock hard and very dry. The rice was all stuck together and the whole lot tasted of nothing. We love nandos but we very disappointed it was as if the food had been reheated.

My husband put in a telephone order to take away, but the number given was slightly different. The staff were incredibly helpful and sorted the problem in not time. Did not wait too long for my food, The gentleman went through the order on front of me. I was hungry all the way home and it was worth the wait, it was stupendously delicious. Thank you Nando's till next time!!

From the out side the store is a plain brick box with a small area on the far side which is accessible and looks like it's a small alfresco dining area for summer use and hemmed in by hedging. There is a very small area of disabled parking out the front which was full of cars (more than I would wager disabled in store) and the rest of the parking was a in the neighbouring car park which charges £1.30 for up to 3 hours.

So a 100km run in the morning - what better way to fuel up than a Nando's?? Staying in Heald Green, it just made sense to take the short drive to the fairly recently opened Stockport Nando's!

Very disappointed - Father's Day- they had run out of corn on the cob, avocado salad, mango juice & after we had ordered were told they had run out of little tomatoes. The guy came over and let us know, I asked did they have any other veg? No, other than veg in sauce, but you can have garlic bread!!! We have now been here for an hour & have yet to see any food. Not impressed, I've not been to Nandos for a while & won't be rushing back. What a shame.

Although in the grim part of my home town Stockport it was the ideal timing for my 32nd Birthday!! A New Nando's opening that day!

The location is a slightly out of town with the shopping centre near Toy's R Us, and the pavement around it is still being worked on so careful with roadworks etc.
