Nando's (Tanglin Mall)

I've always heard conflicting accounts on Nando's. Some people used to talk about Nando's as if I was missing out on the hottest food sensation in town. But subsequently, I heard people talk about the poor quality of food at Nando's. 

The Tanglin Mall branch was pretty empty at lunchtime.

I ordered a 1/4 Peri Peri Chicken with 2 sides (wedges and corn cob) ($13.90). Here's the menu for your reference. Peri Peri is also known as pili pili or piri piri. In plain English, it means African Birds Eye Chilli. Peri peri is the spelling of the name used in the Portugese language.

You get to choose from different levels of spiciness and I chose Hot. The wait for the chicken took some time. I haven't tried the sauce before and it tasted unique and rather delicious. Pity the chicken was a little tough. Also, the chicken meat tasted pretty much unmarinated.

It's not as bad as some people make it out to be, but it would be better if the chicken were more juicy! Service was acceptable, albeit a little slow. I read reviews on not being served water, but we were served iced water so I suppose the issue has been resolved.
