The Bayswater branch is about 10 minutes’ walk from Queensway station. This branch is in a fairly upmarket part of West London, you will walk past Whiteleys Shopping Centre.
It was very busy with only one table free downstairs, not sure if it was as busy upstairs though?
All the staff are mega friendly, smiley, chatty, and helpful.

Best Nandos in London, I always prefer the Nandos restaurant in Reading, never found a better one in London except this one in Bayswater. Everything was almost perfect. Staff are very Friendly especially 'Alfredo', we had problem with our order but he changed it and got us everything we needed and helped us with the nandos app and taught us how to use it. I recommend this branch for delivery also.

Old Nando's looks a bit worn out. Food average. Nothing exceptional about this store.

Headed over to Bayswater during my lunch break for a Nando's takeaway. It's located on the corner of Westbourne Grove & Kensington Garden Square and you can spot it from a fair distance as it stands out amidst the neighbouring shops.

Onto the last Nando's of the night and I ended up in Bayswater. This Nando's is just up and round the Whiteleys shopping centre from Bayswater tube station (about five minutes walk). Whiteleys is home to an Odeon and All Star Lanes bowling alley - and also offers parking priced at £2.80/hr for up to five hours and then £24 for up to eight hours (!). It's on the corner of two roads, but is poorly illuminated from the street.

This store in the fashionable area of Bayswater holds a corner position on Westbourne Grove and Kensington Gardens square round the corner from Bayswater tube station and the Whitelys designer shopping centre. The road is very narrow so no chance of parking and the surrounding streets are permit holder so parking will not be a possibility here.

Another Arsenal away day, another new Nando's for me! This time it was Bayswater before QPR Arsenal and it turned out to be a brilliant day all round with an excellent Nando's and a good Arsenal win. Be careful when walking down the road not to miss this Nando's as it is on a street corner and people (such as Mark) have been known to walk straight past it!

In my opinion, looking to go out for a meal to a posh area which is buzzing at the same time - has to be Bayswater. And when I discovered a halal Nandos bang in the middle of this amazing area, I could not be more delighted! It is a short 5 mins walk from the station as well as with free parking after 6.30pm.

This is a Nando's I would tend to take away from and only sat in on a handful of occasions.The problem with reviewing food when you take away is it is never the same after the journey no matter how short and quick it is. The staff were always friendly as they also came to the gym that I worked at, so most of the time the food was free of charge. There was only one drinks fountain which could cause queues, though there were ample sauces.

This was a horrible experience indeed. The lady ( an african british lady) at the cashier was so rude.I said Hello and she just looked at me and walked away , it was sometime before she came back and the hell began , speaking so arrogantly and in a very rude way she just made it the worse day in my life!!

There was nothing inherently wrong with the food (when it eventually came out), but the whole experience was just terrible.
Firstly, the (obviously racist) manager intervened when Lap tried to claim a free whole chicken (with a 100% legitimately stamped card), and told him that one of the stamps (the one ON the half chicken) wasn't complete.
I went down instead, and was served.

Two things stood out as being unacceptable.

1. We sat next to a window that was cracked and the cold February air kept the entire place cold. Had to keep my coat on.

2. The member of staff at the till wouldn't accept my Nando's loyalty card claiming that some of the stamps were fake. When I got one of my companions to go up WITH THE SAME CARD the same member of staff ACCEPTED IT! Was it my face???

Thoroughly unimpressed and won't return.

Parking is free at night but expensive during the day as it is central london. Staff were very friendly and service was very fast but the food wasnt quite up to standard... and my chips had almost no peri peri spice at all...
