Nando’s Restaurant Review – Oakville Location – Jan 2019

I came to Nando’s Restaurant in Oakville today to meet with an old colleague that I worked with during the Provincial Elections in 2018.
I thought it would be nice to try a restaurant that was different from the typical chain restaurants that I normally visit.

When I walked into the door I was immediately greeted by a friendly face at the front who had asked if I had ever been to Nando’s before. I have been to the Etobicoke location before and being honest I forgot that I have. When she asked I told her the truth.

I was handed a couple of menus’ and found a seat, my colleague and I read over the menu and decided what we would order. I ordered the chicken with Medium Hot and Garlic Mashed Potatoes, which they call Peri-Peri with the Peri-Ometer at Medium. My friend ordered the Chicken as well but in a sandwich form, Garlic Mashed Potatoes too.

The food arrived and was spicy as expected, maybe a bit more than expected but it was definitely a great choice. The presentation was a bit off in the way that I was expecting it to cover more of the plate then it did. Basically they use bigger plates than you would think, the portion itself was fantastic, I finished it and was very comfortable. You will see by the pictures below that it looked very presentable and pretty, almost wanted to look at it more.

The atmosphere and the ambiance was interesting too, it felt as if we were tourists walking into the place and to some degree we were. We were touring the culture and food they were offering. Everyone that worked there was so helpful and friendly that it was kind of refreshing to see this, it felt like they weren’t just doing their jobs but were happy doing it.

I found an inconsistency though, the Etobicoke location had someone to serve and take the order, I had to go to the counter to order at this location. Which one is the right one I don’t know, it wasn’t a big deal either way but I wanted to point out the difference.

I would rate this particular restaurant a 4 of 5. Have you been to Nando’s before? What was your experience? Comment below or send us a message to let us know how it was for you!

    1. It’s definitely a nice restaurant and worth a try at least once. They have non spicy options as well. Thank You for reading and commenting.
