Well I won't say much about the decor since it hasn't really changed since I visited on Friday? Other than a police van parked outside with tape blocking off the mcdonalds, for a second I thought Nando's was closed off! I nearly died! Luckily it was open.

The Nandoca's at this branch are always so smiley! even when it's really late at night (10:45) I requested the table I had sat at two of the other times I visited and quickly ordered my food, my usual butterfly chicken with chips and garlic bread. I got settled down in my seat with a good view of my food being prepared and in under 10 minutes it had arrived, not surprising since it was almost empty at this time of night.

The garlic bread was visibly burnt, thought I do like it that way as I've said in previous reviews, however the chips were also burnt and were very hard and disappointing, so I covered them in extra extra hot sauce and devoured them. Everything tastes good with peri-peri on. The chicken was also a bit burnt and not dripping so I had to cover it in extra-extra hot, so yeah, delicious.

I was in and out in under half an hour, and was given the usual thank you and goodbye from the staff. Though the food was slightly disappointing, it could have been a lot worse, and it certainly quenched my craving... for now...

Nando's are one of the fastest grwiong food companies here in the UK and also voted one of the best companies to work for. The most creative marketing I have seen in long time and chicken to die for.
