A successful evening once someone took the trouble to explain the system to us. Thoroughly enjoyed the food, although it seemed a little expensive. Also enjoyed experimenting with the different strength sauces. Make sure you don't sit too near the door in winter, though.

I am not a fan of Nando's...I don't like spicy food and i don't like the fact you pay so much for chicken yet you must go and order the food at the till like children in a school lunch canteen. Anyway that aside I go because my partner likes it. This was the second time ever at a Nando's.... More

Just because I love chicken I frequent this place often. My daughter also loves it. Its quite a free place, drinks are on tap to use freely (soft drinks only) Seating is ample. You can watch passers by going about their day in the busy town. Gives you a feel of being in Paris. The staff are always lovely even... More

We only had one hour before our parking ran out. The Nando's staff were all very friendly and efficient. The restaurant was spotlessly clean. The food came quickly and was delicious! We finished our meal with time to spare to. I haven't been a fan of Nando's before, but this first visit to the St Albans branch has fully made... More

After taking Mrs Uncle Dad and Uncle Dad junior to Wagamama for the first time, it was their turn to take me somewhere new...Nando's. I'm not a fan of chicken on the bone but there was plenty of boneless options to choose from. Add in the hot sauce and some leftover red pepper dip from my starter and I was... More

Third visit in three years. I must be a masochist. From poor service, dirty tables, uncooked chicken and inordinately long wait times, Nando's has it in spades. Do yourself a favour. Buy and grill your own chicken, add Piri Piri sauce and make a much better job than this bungling company. Never again!

The only two things I enjoyed about eating at this Nando's was the spicy rice and peri peri chips. The chicken my husband and I ordered wasn't up to the standard we are used to when we visit other Nando's. The chicken wasn't succulent but dry. I ordered the mango and lime seasoning on my chicken and I could just... More

Nando's wouldn't be my restaurant of choice, mainly because you have to go up to the till, order and pay for each course independently. Having said that this particular branch is clean and tidy, and the staff are friendly.

I come here so often, the service is amazing. I'll order and by the time I sit down but my purse away and get all my saucers and knives and forks my meal has already arrived. So keep up with the great service, and I'll keep coming back for more ! :)
