I went to Pizza Express Corn Exchange Manchester on Monday 6th January for lunch, with my husband. We were shown to a table very quickly, our waitress was polite and very helpful, no request was to small. Drinks were offered as soon as we sat down. The restaurant was clean, well presented and the atmosphere was pleasant.
The last time I was in this particular restaurant was approx. 2 years ago where the service and food was not very good. So I was so pleased to win a voucher from Product Testing.
Myself and my son arrived at 2.30pm, the restaurant had about half a dozen diners, all the tables were clean as was the floor. The lovely waitress showed us to a table and within 5 minutes we had our drinks, and starters ordered.
For starters we had a garlic bread and garlic bread with cheese, which tasted lovely and just the right size for a starter.
We waited only 10 minutes for our main courses, with the waitress being very polite and asking if we were ok and looking for more drinks. I ordered the pizza I had last time the “florentina” with my son ordering the “sloppy Giuseppe”. I must say my pizza was a vast improvement this time around, with plenty of gran Moravia cheese, plenty of spinach and the egg cooked to perfection. My son was very pleased with his pizza and said it was delicious.
We were so full we didn’t have desert, just a cappuccino.
All in all I was very pleased with this experience, food was lovely, service quick. The only bad comment was from my son, he would have preferred his pizza sliced, but that’s just nick picking.

arrived at Nandos at 7.10 on the evening of 16th October , it was fairly busy and the queuing time was 30 mins, even though they had some, about 4 booth tables not being used. the waiting area was not big enough and it was quite chaotic. After the 30 min wait time we were taken to a table, as we had chosen out meal ,we were able to order straight away. the food arrived after about 20 mins. it was hot and tasty ,but rather disappointed with portion size.
it only took us about 15 mins to eat ,so we were only in the restaurant for just over an hour, I feel that it was a bit expensive for the Fastness of the food, considering how much time was spent queuing. also the drinks were not cheap
i would have Nandos again but i would consider it as take away option, because the idea of queuing once for a table ,then again to order does not appeal to me
the restaurant was quite noise and although there was music in the back ground you could not here it
also while i was there the was nearly a nasty accident with a knife falling from a plates. the waiter bought the finished dishes down the stairs and it slipped of and over the handrail hitting a man sitting at the table.
Hi my review for Nandos Bury St Edmunds
Arrived at 7.29pm Monday 14th October, greeted by a friendly member of staff who took us to a table situation on their ground floor and gave us a menu.
As we sat at the table looking through our menus I notices our sleeves were sticking to the table although looked clean.
We choose our food and went to the counter ordered and paid. We only had a 11 minute wait for our food. The meal was presented very nicely on the plate, hot and tasted as good as it looked my only disappointment was the coldslaw which was very watery and tasted cheap.
Visited the ladies which was spotlessly clean.
Being in the catering business myself you are aware of certain procedures and as we were about to leave watched a man who was cooking go to chemical cupboard and get the mop & bucket out in his cooking clothes!
Overall I would of given an 8/10 rating.
We arrived at Nando’s at St Enoch Centre at 17.35 – greeter told us it could be 25 – 30 mins before we were seated, 15 mins later we were seated, our order was given at 17.54, food arrived at 18.12.
Food was well cooked, only complaint on food was chicken burger could have filled the roll instead of half filling it. Portion of chips and corn plentiful – couldn’t finish chips.
Restaurant was full when we arrived, queue of people waiting, was impressed with how quick tables were cleared when customers left.
Staff were very pleasant and helpful, plenty of staff on duty and kept everything running smoothly.
Everything was clean with constant cleaning of floor, condiment and surrounding ledges.
Visited toilets which were on the upper level, very clean, signage could be better, I have joint problems and struggle with stairs so was disappointed no toilet on lower level.
Overall we had a very pleasant dining experience.
I was chosen to be a secret diner for Pizza Express. I got a card for Pizza Express which had £50 on it.
We went for dinner at the Pizza Express in Cambridge at about 9pm. We were shown to our table quickly, however we were then left for a little bit too long before they came back to get our drinks order.
We ordered our meals & then waited for about 15-20 minutes for the starters to arrive, by which time we were very hungry.
The food, however, was delicious & was subsequently served in a timely manner. The waiters & waitresses were fairly attentive, but some things were omitted such as the Parmesan cheese.
There were some rowdy diners & they got told to be quiet by the waitress, that was much appreciated by me.
All-in-all it was a lovely meal & a great experience. Thank you very much for choosing me to be a secret diner.
