Here is David’s review of his Nandos Mystery Dining experience:
“Hi, here is my ProductTesting.uk.com review for Nandos. I’ve also included 3 photos. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to review Nandos, I enjoyed doing the review and would certainly do more reviews for other products as well.
I’ve been to many restaurants over the years, but have never visited Nandos - the branch I visited with my fiancee was Nandos at the Barbican Leisure Complex in Plymouth.
I visited about 6 pm. There was a waitress waiting by the reservation desk and she seated us straight away.
The waitress showed and explained the menu, also saying that we needed to say if we wanted the medium/hot varieties of the chicken when ordering.
When I ordered the food at the counter I didn’t have to wait long as there were a couple of people taking orders at the counter.
The staff were very helpful and friendly and did a great job, there was only 1 slight negative, after we finished our main course the waitress asked if we wanted dessert, we said yes and would give us a couple of minutes to decide and then come back and take our order, however, after about 10 minutes the waitress still hadn’t returned so I decided to go to the counter and order desert.
After placing our order, the food was very quick in arriving, certainly a lot quicker than most restaurants I’ve dined in.
My fiancee ordered red pepper dip for starters, which was slightly spicy. There was plenty of pita bread with the starter and she enjoyed it. I ordered garlic bread which tasted fine, although it looked a little underwhelming on the plate, perhaps a small side dish to dip the bread in would have helped.
For mains we both had the Butterfly Chicken breast, my sides included corn on the cob and creamy Mash, my fiancee’s sides were corn on the cob and sweet mash.
The chicken breast was large, thick and succulent which we had with hot Peri Peri sauce. The sauce was delicious, the spicy hotness was perfect for both of us.
The corn on the cob was also good - it also came with a couple of holders for the ends of the cobs. My creamy mash came in a side dish, again the mash tasted excellent, but I would have preferred the mash directly on my plate as the plate looked a little bare with just the chicken and corn on the cob on it.
For dessert we ordered chocolate cheesecake with cream and gooey caramel cheesecake. Whilst the cheesecake tasted excellent with the cream, I feel it did need the cream as it wasn’t soft enough without it. She felt the gooey caramel cheesecake wasn’t gooey enough, but still enjoyed it.
Overall, the service was excellent, very quick to clear our table after each course.
I certainly enjoyed the food at Nandos and would highly recommend Nandos to friends and will certainly go again”
