Nando's Chicken NE YYC

After reading a review on a local blog, (AYGET?) thought I'd give Nando's Chicken a try. It's a chain and such. Sounded good, so why not?

One orders at the till and then sits down with a wooden number to identify your table.

In short, the chicken was pretty good, marinated, grilled and as advertised so to speak. But, the state of the restaurant was horrendous. Just filthy.

Floors were dirty, glasses were dirty, tables were untended and dirty, no towels in the grubby washroom. Had to polish the cutlery, you get the idea. A crowd of kids were at the bar, apparently working there, or hanging out there, not sure what.

Maybe because of the subdued colour scheme, It crept in on me while I was waiting and looking around, and then eating! Amazing. This joint would not have passed a health inspection. My dining companion and I pretty much ran for it at the conclusion.
