As everything else was closed we had no choice but to try this Nando's. I found the service to be curt and without a smile. The burger arrived as mild even though it was ordered as hot. The tomato was almost white and the bun soggy. The toilets were dirty.
I would not go back unless desperate.

If you need a quick dinner, this is the place to go! Haven't had a bad experience! Sometimes a bit over crowded!

A tiny 'restaurant' - Portuguese based. Stopped for a bite to eat - parking is on the side - on the other side there is plenty of parking, but it seems the businesses there want to block Nando's business. Instead of parking into the area, the 4x4's are lined up right against the road, preventing other patrons to enter and park. Six years ago I also stopped here but then there was sufficient parking. So, I entered and encountered only Black patrons / staff (and music :) ) and then I realised that racial discrimination is still alive and well in Piet Retief!! Thumbs down to the businesses next to Nando's - anyway, now for the review.
Staff were very friendly but the meal was a little bit pitiful. I asked for a quarter chicken and coleslaw. I got a huge dish of coleslow (searched for carrot strips though!) and the cabbage was sliced thickly and the mayonnaise covered the slaw so thickly that I struggled to eat the slaw. The chicken was tasty and soft but I am sure the hen is still looking for her baby - the portion was tiny. As a woman, I thought this would be sufficient to eat but I left unsatisfied.
Music played - can you vary it a bit?

We dropped in for lunch when driving through Piet Retief and we were amazed - this is by far one of the best Nando's I have ever eaten at - i had the chicken cheese wrap and coleslaw and they were superb!

I bought lunch for my colleague and I ordered the cbicken salad with tangy Tomotoe marinade. The lettuce was so fresh and crispy, however the best part was the feta add on for and when I opened it, the amount of feta they gave me was amazing. Honestly one of the best meals inhave had at Nandos. BEV MOORE
