I don’t know why but I’ve always found any of Cardiff’s Nando’s restaurants to be a vibrant place, perfect for a social, non-fussy meal with friends or family so it’s no surprise that I decided to write a recommendation article about it here at Vida Unique.
There’s three options available, two within Cardiff’s city centre. One based in the famous Brewery Quarter and the other which is my personal favourite, located in the new St. Davids 2 Shopping Centre, and lastly another one in Cardiff Bay which comes a close second.
The reason why like the St. Davids Nando’s is because it offers more than an eating experience but it’s also surrounded by eye catching restaurants while being situated inside Wales’ most vibrant shopping centre. I’ve recently had a meal there with friends before going on a night out and almost as if by ritual, we decided to drop by before heading out into the night.
As usual, I went with the olives and garlic bread for starters, as well as the Portuguese powerhouse bottled beer Sagres and for my mains, I had to stay true to my tastebuds and go with the half chicken (hot), with rice and chips.
One of the things for which we appreciate Nando’s so much is the speed in which the service delivered. We waited about 15 minutes before our mains were bing served and as always, the food was just on point!
The staff friendliness, the vibrant atmosphere, bubbly background music and the social atmosphere, are just a few of the aspects which make the idea of going to Nando’s so addictive. For someone like me, it is an ideal setting to conduct non-formal business meetings and build client rapport over some great grub. It does the trick every time. Furthermore, let’s be honest while were at it… Nando’s chicken is probably some of the best served chicken you can eat anywhere in the world, so any excuse to go there is a great excuse.
… We just can’t get enough of the place!
