I love nandos back in the UK, but this was a very poor version. No starters, no beers. The chicken was nice enough, the corn had the texture of being soaked in water for days.

Compared to the UK, its a no no for me

Shame as I was looking forward to it.

The service was excellent. They took the order and you get to watch them cook the food as you wait The chicken was well cooked and delicious as always. Ive eaten nando's in Auckland stores for a few years now and this restaurant is as good as those.

I would have no hesitation taking my children there and eating again. If you are a newbie to Nando's try either lemon or herb or mild. Do not try the extra hot or hot straight away. It is addictive chicken at its best.

The peri peri chips give you that extra spice kick, but unfortunately don't waste your money on their rice. It's bland and not worth the money.

If you have ever been to Sth Africa and eaten Portuguese chicken with peri peri sauce then you know what I am talking about. The food is good, unfortunately not a lot of people know about it and it is therefore not frequented regularly. The people that run it also run the Indian Rest. next door and are very nice people and the food is spicey and good. They only serve CHICKEN as the main meat with salads. I find it a little pricey.
