Advantages: good for chicken eaters
Disadvantages: not much variety, expensive, bad service.
I have only ever been to Nando's twice. The first time I absolutely hated it and vowed to never go again. However, I was convinced by friends to return. Yet again, I was disappointed.
Their is no option for plain chicken. You can either have peri chicken, lemon chicken or whatever other chicken they can think of. Either way, they are always really spicy even if you ask for the coolest flavour you could have. When I ordered chips they came with some sort of dust on them (I was later told this was peri peri) which I did not ask for. There is no real way of getting what you want. There are so many different options that you get completely confused and end up getting any old thing, unless you're some sort of pro.
The service of the waiters/waitresses is diabolical. They hover around you whilst you are eating however once you've finished it's like they vanish into thin air
One thing which really annoyed me is you have to get your own drink, your own knife and fork and serviette. For the amount you pay to eat there I would expect that to be already provided.
Went to the toilets which absolutely reeked, there was no evidence of cleaning
This place is ideal for people who absolutely adore chicken however if you are like a me, a very fussy eater, Nando's is probably the worst place you could go.
I would not recommend to anyone who is looking for a good meal at good prices
Summary: if you love chicken and don't mind getting your own cutlery, this is the place for you
