I love Nandos! I can understand why you'd think it's overrated if you thought it was a proper restaurant but it isn't. Like other people said it's somewhere between a fast food joint and a restaurant and I think it straddles that divide perfectly.
I really like how easy and convenient it is and the food is quite nice in my opinion. The prices are reasonable too. They have a very generous voucher system which attracts students I think.
I do find it funny when people complain that even lemon and herb is too spicy! How do you handle any spicy food if you have such a low tolerance to spice?
How did Nando's become so popular? Watch

I do like Nandos, think it tastes nice, especially the sauces. Popularity started imo due to a lot of young celebs going there like One Direction/JLS etc. Social media such as Instagram and Twitter. And the loyalty cards.
Although I've realised how expensive it is compared to cooking it all from scratch.
I have a large family (12 people). If I were to cook 3 whole chickens, it would cost me around 10-15 pounds depending on the size of the chicken. And a couple more pounds for the sides including the marinade. So in total around £15-20.
Nandos would charge me for the Jumbo Platter (2 Whole Chickens + 5 Large Sides): £43.50
