We wanted take-out...but no one on Eat Street would accommodate us. We had a beautiful view of the Bay of Plenty from our hotel, and on a gorgeous day, we wanted to take full advantage. No one on Eat Street would let us order to take out. No one. Nando's would. While we awaited our order, we were so impressed... More

I had a catch with few friends in this Restaurant and we really enjoyed the Whole chicken and very good company with the restaurant manager Harry. He was very courteous and his service was exceptional. This restaurant is located in Tutanekai Street. 5 minutes walk from the Rotorua I Site. I would highly recommend for a quick delicious lunch in... More

We were visiting Rotorua from Palmerston North and were really excited to go to Nandos as we haven't had it for a long time. The service was friendly enough but very rushed however it was not busy (we were the only people at the counter when we arrived). The wait was reasonable considering its all cooked fresh. My partner was... More

Ordered a family plate for share. The chicken was nicely done, and there was a wide range of interesting sauces. We enjoyed our meal.

Regularly go here whenever I want a nice breakfast date with my sister - the muffin and coffee combo is great for what you pay and the lunch and dinner menu has plenty to choose from (vegetarian too). Nice place to go if you want something at a relatively good price and not greasy takeaways. Only suggestion would be better... More

So after being disappointed by the proces in some of the top restaurants recommended in Rotorua, we ended up searching elsewhere. We came past Nando's with a breakfast offer of one breakfast muffin (poached egg,bacon,cheese,sauce hollandaise) plus a really big coffee for $5,50. We were sceptical as we're all not usually fans of Nando's but I have to say it... More

The meal was fine but the management allowed sparrows to take up residence and they were a pest, you couldn't leave your food for a moment or they were on you table. A chair where I was sitting had bird droppings on. The management needs to wake up.

Ordering from the $9.90 lunch menu was a nightmare with a waitress who just didn't listen. Ended up twice returning to the counter for missing coffee and salad. Food was nicely served and tasty but very poor service. Would think twice about returning

The Nando's in NZ has a nice vegetarian-friendly menu. The staff at the restaurant were efficient and friendly. The food arrived without delay and tasted really good. :)

Excellent place to go get good coffee and muffin. They serve good ribs and chicken too. Conveniently located in town.
