Something for the weekend…. Nandos

Nandos is a chain of restaurants which focuses on chicken dishes. The restaurants are very nicely decorated. The buildings themselves are nearly always painted white on the outside. On the inside, soft lighting and a Portuguese theme. Lots of brown wooden decoration, green plants and a nice ambience. The kitchen is very often open for all to see.

The atmosphere in their restaurants is really nice. It’s always pretty full but noise is at a nice level and the whole place just feels chilled and relaxing. The staff are usually not authentically Portuguese, although the odd one often is. They are mostly friendly and nice.

The food at Nandos is second to none. The overall cuisine of the restaurant is Portuguese, although there is a little something for everyone here! Their speciality is their Peri Peri chicken although there are a range of meals available.

I went with my friend to Nandos and we decided to share the whole chicken with two sides – whilst all chicken here is peri peri, you can opt to with either lemon and herb, mild spice, medium spice or hot spice marinade! We decided to have the medium marinade with spicy rice and seasoned chips. The food here is lush! I find that the portions are usually just right. I feel full but not overstuffed which I always think just ruins a meal. The chicken itself is tender and tasty, and all food is served nice and hot!

Nandos is pretty cheap for what you get in my opinion, for our platter it cost £18.95 which include two bottomless soft drinks. Great value for money!

    We have Nandos here in Canberra too. I’ve never eaten in one. You’ve convinced me to give it a try.
