I ordered a wrap from Nandos chilli lane in JHB and it was delivered with 5 tiny pieces of chicken, a drop of sauce and nothing else. No coleslaw or salad. This is not the first or second time this has happened to me

This restaurante offers delicious chicken plates, but my favourite is Chicken livers with Peri Peri X-hot sauce. Never tried before in any other country.

A South African icon has let me down again. Last used their services over two years ago thinking that things have changed. Well no. The chicken (hot Peri) is tastless and bland. They accually have the ordacity to charge for delivery of under 5 km...but then I realized why they charge. If you forget to get the order correct then you have to do a return delivery to make it happen. Never ever again will I order Nandos even if it was the last meal.More

Worst ever service from the Carlton center branch!! I got there today around 6:30, from work.business is slow yeah, Staff was just lazing around, some eating on the customer tables,the cashier was so flat such that I felt I was intruding. I placed an order...1/4 chicken and chips and watched as the griller guy threw it on the grill.. He only did one side and battered the other with their sauce . when he gave me I opened the package and showed them the raw meat on the inside. At least he was polite enough to take it back and the other workmates were scoffing..Mara here, wats wrong Mos??! And one actually said aaah hayaya... Then the guy literally drowned the meat in their mild sauce yet I'd asked for lemon and herb,,, I was just too tired to react took my time order and left but I would never wish such uncouth customer service on anyone,,, I always buy from Rosebank,and have no complaints at all but Carlton center really needs to know what customer service isMore

We needed a quick stop on our way from Kruger National Park and this place provided that for us. The order was filled quickly and the food was good.

If you like dry, tasteless chicken and a side of cold potato wedges for lunch, this is the place for you. Add to the mix hard chairs and sticky tables and you’ve got the whole package. Very damaging to the brand

Our family has tasted Nando's peri peri chicken in other countries and so we were very excited to eat at Nando's again.. this time in South Africa, where it originates from. The chicken is deliciously tender and the sauces add a spicy twist to the...meal. It has become our comfort food while in South Africa. Wish they could bring this to the Philippines.More

When Nandos was opposite Chamberlains Hardware in Roodepoort they were great. Service was excellent and they always got the order correct. Since moving to the new location it is the complete opposite. What is more of a concern is the lack of security outside their...new premises. There are always people begging and it is a very unsafe environment. Customers are your bread and butter Nandos...look after them!!More

I went to Nandos in Goldreef hoping for a good dinner since I had eaten at Nandos several other times and been well satisfied. Unfortunately this one fell below my expectations. They had a big add on the first dish that caught my eye but...alas they were sold out. My next choice ended up not having a bun but the food was served between a couple of slices of bread. When I asked the waitress for tomato sauce she half heatedly pointed in a certain direction and walked away. I guess I was expected to get up and get my own. Like I said, I have had better service and food at other Nandos so I shall not paint them all with the same brush. But at Goldreef I came in with higher expectations.More

In Southafrica "pap" is the daily food. So this restautant chain has some good pap to try when in a hurry. Be aware of the level of spiciness, medium was super hot !!
