Chicken , Little

Went for a quick bit here the other night. I have been to Nandos in Vancouver, Metrotown and have really enjoyed it. This experience not so much.
I ordered a half chicken with baked potato and a honey lager. My bill came to just over $16.00. The meal came within a reasonable time however the meal itself was questionable. My half chicken was the size of a cornish hen. Swiss Chalet gives you twice as much for less price. I have never eaten such a small half chicken. I ordered a baked potato with my meal, it came with rice. Please the restaurant was not very busy and they couldn't get my order correct. Regardless I ate the rice as I was hungry and didn't want to kick up a fuss about the rice instead of the potato, same amount of carbs so whatever but the point is , very small simple order please get it right.
Will I be back? Not anytime soon. Very expensive for what you get and the food was just ok, not great as in I have to get back here for more.

We came over from vancouver and wanted to use a groupon we purchased online. The girl that greeted us at the counter took our groupon,nice smile and very polite. We ordered two chicken wing platters,order was delivered with a greeting from the manager who brought our order over,"Janice" asked if she could bring us anything else,and we asked for some extra suce that came with our yam fries..came to our table in 30 seconds. We found the two ladies very pleasant, and watching them behind the counter reminded me of teamwork..got busy shortly after noon...they were so efficient..and were friendly with all we saw as patrons.Wings were not breaded..or deep fried..tasted like they just came of a Bar-B-Que,on skewers no less. Not just a healthy alternative to the wings we normally encountered in most pubs..but absolutley delicious! Thanks Janice..great atmosphere,food and service! Worth the day trip from Vancouver!

Dine In or Fast Food....Which is it? YIKES

I was walking down Government Street when I noticed that a Nando's Chicken had opened up on the corner of Government and Pandora.

I grabbed a pamphlet menu that was attatched to a sandwhich board outside and saw that it offered me a Chicken wrap and a side order for $6.99. I though that sounded like a good deal.

When I got to the counter a young girl looked at me like I was a piece of garbage and rudely blurted out...."What do you want"......I then enquired about the deal that was offered for walk in customers using the coupon attatched to the menu I brought in........She gave me no eye contact when speaking to me and was chewing gum and was really not paying any attention to what I was asking her. I finally figured out my order and when I asked her for NO MAYO on the wrap she rolled her eyes at me like it was a big deal and huffed and puffed about it. After I paid her, she barked at me to take a number sign, sit down, and we will bring you your food. While at the same time she was trying to send a text message on her cell phone!

After about 10 minutes.......another waitress brought me out my wrap and fries and she was very polite and nice to me and made sure to ask me how my food was.

Well it was the quality of something you woudl get from a KFC drive through window...A thick tortilla shell loaded with lettuce, a few shreds of cheese, and about 3 tiny little strips of chicken...........Where's the chicken BOB?

The fries were your basic frozen pre-packaged KFC fries with the option of using different spices and dressings on it at your table.

I once again have to say a Thumbs Down to this new restaurant!...........Service was horrible for the most part and the food was cheap, poor quality, and lett me with a pain in my tunny for a couple hours afterwards.

A favorite for lunch

I come in to Nandos 2 or 3 times a week for lunch. I work nearby so its convenient. The girls are always sweet and polite and can usually remember my order. I always get take away so not sure how the sit down service is but based on the counter service I would guess good. My order always comes up fast and they always thank me and tell me to have a nice day. I get the chicken burger extra hot and obviously like it or I wouldn't keep coming back.
