Great place, and a nice way to start the new year... Aasim was brilliant, served us as quick as he could and also gave my wife some water as she was thirsty whilst waiting.

Very happy

Brilliant service, I and my wife had chicken burgers, which we wanted placed on the grill for a little while ( as we like it slightly burnt ). The guy on the till his name was ASIM, was really good in helping us get this,by talking with the chefs, also he gave us a good service, very funny, and smiley! Wife and myself were impressed. Thanks for your help Asim

Got to the branch by DLR from Canning Town to Gallions Reach, then a bus to the retail park. Very impressed with the size of the branch, full of lights and full of people as I waited over ten minutes for a table to become available. The host wanted me to order so that the table could be cleaned for me though I got my table before a family of six who had been in there longer than me.

As a West London boy/man, it's not often i venture in the dark realms of East London. Yet i found myself being invited to join my brother-in-laws for a quick catch up and a trip to Beckton Nando's for an early Sunday dinner.

An early afternoon at job at West Ham meant I had a few hours to kill before heading to the Emirates to watch Arsenal beat Bayern Munich! What better way to fill the gap than a Nandventure at the not-too-distant Beckton Nando's which has recently had a beautiful refurb?

Sadly this is the worst Nandos I have been to.. The staff are nice & friendly but the clientele they seem to get there are awful. I have been here 3 times now, normally after I do my Tescos shopping, and 3 times there had been a fight and police have been called.... I feel sorry for the staff working here...

Firstly, the decoration at this restaurant is very average. I could only see one piece of art on the walls which is very unusual, and no interesting furnishings to speak of. It was clean though, but it would probably benefit from a revamp over all.

Unusually bad service from Beckton, they normally flawless but I was the only person not to be given student discount in our group for whatever reason, they ran out of the butterfly wing I ordered and the food took 25 minutes to arrive, by which time the rest of our party had finished eating.

Busy Saturday at Gallion's Reach was a very disappointing trip. Manager who was allocating table was rude and slow and very unorganised.
The waiting area is in the middle of the restaurant slowing down the service.
Also a very small branch for such a high demand.
The staff didn't have a clue. Food was below average.

The staff here are very ignorant, they ignored us TWICE! After this, my other half received his chicken & 35 minutes later he received his sides. Adding to this, the waiter stood chatting to a guy for 20 minutes of this while the side was in the counter behind him so when we received it, it was cold. We complained & he said "there's nothing I can do, the kitchen only gave me it just then". The worst service I've ever had from a Nando's ever!!

This is a really small Nando's so you should always expect to wait for a table at peak times. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is usually of a good quality.
