    Personally I don't like it. I dislike the fact that you have to get all the stuff yourself such as plates, cutlerely, sauces, drinks etc and the last time I went in everything was filthy. I don't even think the food is that good. TBH I can't see what all the hype is about.

    The one in Cambridge is fantastic. Really, really clean and the service is provided is excellent- they're very helpful.
    But I love Nando's because of their dishes... yumm!! :p:

    Very nice, but I do agree the service could improve a little. I think it costs enough that you would expect things like cutlery to be taken care of.

    Agreed, when I go to a restaurant I don't expect to do everything myself.

    Nando's is boring.

    If all restaurants would be the same (to be waited upon) then that'd be boring. I like the idea of a self-service

    I was in catered halls in my first year at Uni. The food, as you can imagine was awful. There was a Nandos not too far away. My friends and I must've gone there like 2/3 times a week without fail, and none of us ever got bored of the food.

    Also, when I first arrived in Sydney, the first thing I wanted to have for dinner that night was Nandos, so me and a friend found where it was and went on a mission to find it, getting lost numerous times on the way.

    Nandos = :yy:

    Yeah of course, but the price is higher than say, buying a burger in a pub, and you would never be expected to get your own cutlery and sauces there. The price should reflect the service, really.
