Nando’s Flame Grilled Chicken: Good chicken, but everything else sucks

Diana Chan October 19, 2011 Portuguese, South Burnaby, Two Beakers

I keep having bad experiences at Nando’s, so I decided to give it one last shot. I’ve been to the other Kingsway location, but I thought the mall location couldn’t be too bad. They specialize in peri peri chicken, which is their flame grilled chicken.

Since it was just me, myself and I.  I decided to look towards the “Classic Meals for One”, how depressing! I actually don’t mind since no one needs to watch me chow down. their prices are alright, but can get pricy if you keep adding stuff onto your meal.

Quarter chicken theight meal with Greek salad ($9 +$1). When you upgrade to the greek salad, you gotta pay a dollar more. The salad did not look like it was worth $1 more, the leaves were not fresh and started to change colors. I was scared…but since I’m asian I ate it anyways. The onions didn’t look fresh either, it seemed like it was cut a while ago and just refrigerated for a long time. Best to stay away from the salad.

The chicken on the other hand was pretty good! I got their medium peri peri sauce to give it a kick. What is very disappointing is that their sauce is just smothered on top. I kinda wanted more sauce since the flavour does not seep all the way down into the meat. The thing I like about the chicken is the nice smokey flavour, but I don’t think it’s worth the money you pay.

I think by now I’ve given Nando’s enough chances, so it’s time to say goodbye and keep on eating Church’s Chicken instead.

Words of Wisdom:

  • Wilted and unfresh salads
  • Slightly expensive for what you pay for
  • Decent chicken
