“Excellent service and food”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

Never eaten in Nandos before, but only because chain does not stretch down to where I live. Lots of very positive comments re food though.

Although semi self service, the staff were great from intro at door, through guide to how restaurant works and then regular requests at the table re anything more needed etc.

The style of deliver in this restaurant lends itself to staff being able to pay more attention - unlike Pizza Hut who seem chaotic by comparison. They can also be largely self service in buffet sessions, but in Pizza Hut you cannot even get a drinks top-ups or attract staf attention.

At Nandos drinks top ups are easy, you just pop over and do it yourself. The whole style of ordering at counter, delivery to table, collection of sauces and drinks works exceptionally well. So well that is the food was average, you would still come along as it is a pleasant experience.

The food however is special, the sauces really do something to chicken, which can often be bland in other establishments.

Looking for a quick meal with great service, atmosphere and food - look no further.

The is only one major negative for Nandos, they do not have a single restaurant in Cornwall!
