    I hear lots of people going on about nandos like it's amazing & tastes so good. I tried it for the first time last year and it was like WTF? Chicken & chips that costs £10 per person It doesn't even taste that great, you can buy a bottle of peri peri sauce for like £1 and a chicken for £4 in the supermarket and you can feed 4 people, . Nandos is crap!!

    I hate the nandos hype. I've been a few times and it's always full of 15 year olds instagramming pics of their 'cheeky nandos'.
    The food isn't that good quality, and is overpriced. Just like most crappy food chains really.

    I've never been and have only been somewhat interested in it once. Glad it's not all that good Oriental buffets are sooo much better, like £7 for all you can eat heaven :P

    Why eat out at all? I'm pretty sure I could recreate most meals you would find in a restaurant for a fraction of the price.

    I like Nando's because it can be reasonably healthy and is quite convenient.

    You have to snapchat/instagram/fb/twitter that you are having a "cheeky nandos" before you eat your meal. It's part of the rules!

    I actually love Nandos.

    I like Nando's. It's quite cheap in my opinion and tastes nice and I'm not one to host dinner parties so it is a great way to share a meal with friends without spending much money. Like someone said above, you could argue that there's no point in eating out at all because you can almost always cook everything yourself for a fraction of the price.

    Cheap, good portion sizes, great flavour.

    I really struggle to see what isn't to like about Nandos.

    I don't know maybe it's because I like to cook, and I know I could create something better than Nandos in a short amount of time, so I don't like spending money onit!

    It's popular so some people will dislike it. Not sure why that's the rule, but it is.

    It really isn't healthy at all though is it. If you like eating it then fine, everyone loves indulgence food. But don't pretend nandos is a "healthy" option because it definitely isn't. The amount of salt alone in each meal makes in unhealthy never mind everything else.

    Personally I find nandos to be as crap as every other over priced franchised restaurant.

    It can be reasonably healthy, yes.
