I was shopping with SM and having established that Nando’s do serve wine (a plus in West Quay!) we decided to find out for ourselves what all the fuss is about!  Everyone is always Tweeting about their piri piri chicken but even if it had been amazing I don’t think we could bear to go through the stress of the ordering system again.  Are we getting old, yes most probably!You are shown to a table and then you go to the counter to order (and pay) giving your table number.  The food is delivered to your table but we did discover that from then on if you want anything else you can order from your waiter and pay for it at the table.  You also have to get your own cutlery, sauces, water from a central point, its all such a hassle in a very busy restaurant!

The first problem we encountered was that the staff had to have a major discussion as to whether we could just order a bottle of wine without food??  We wanted to have a drink whilst sorting out the menu, in fact we had almost finished the bottle by the time we had worked out the system and decided on our choices!  There are so many choices, how spicy, which combination of mains and side dishes… regular sides or fino sides etc!  I strongly recommend you read the menu here so you figure it all out before you arrive.

We shared a 1/4 chicken, mango & lime with a fino side sweet mash potato, 3 medium chicken wings and a Prego Steak Roll, medium with sides of chips and macho peas.  It was all tasty and certainly different except for the steak which was inedible it was so tough.  They brought us another one which was better.  If we do go again I think we’d try the wraps which looked good.  The peas were our favourite oh & the house white was quite gluggable!!  Cost £££

Ladies Who Lunch Scoring:

Quality of food
Variety of menu
Staff and service
Ambience, setting and decor
Value for Money



Total Yummy Factor


Report: CJ

5/5 = Cannot be improved upon, 4/5 = Very good, 3/5 = Good,
2/5 = Satisfactory, 1/5 = Poor, 0/5 = Terrible

The higher the “Yummy” factor, the better the food & service. The higher the number of £ signs the more expensive. (Roughly one £ sign = £5 per head)
