This Nando's is just up/over the road from The Point complex which houses a Virgin Active and The Reel cinema. Elstree Studios is right by the entrance of the Tesco Extra car park. Elstree and Borehamwood Train Station is also a 5 minute walk away from Nando's.
Parking: 
Tesco Extra gives three hours free parking and is just a short 5 minute walk down the high street.

The second of two birthday Nandos took me to Borehamwood, possibly a bad sign when it started raining as I left the train station to locate the branch? It was less than ten minutes I think from the station just off the high street down to the branch itself which is on a corner before a shopping complex and huge car park. I don't know about prices, sorry.

Have been to this Nandos many times, usually great service however there was 30 minutes between me ordering and then receiving my food. When it arrived, the chicken and chips were lovely but the corn was hard and dry and not to its usual standard. I didn't complain as i was so hungry and just wanted to get out as quickly as possible. We finished our meal in 15 minutes and left shortly after.

This store in Borehamwood is very close to the famous Elstree studios where Big Brother is filmed, so if your unlucky and are there on eviction day you might bump into one of those non celebrities. The store doesn't look much from outside and is housed in a 60's building close to Virgin active.

100 years of film at Elstree at Borehamwood! That's what greets visitors to Borehamwood - with some nice little flags on all the lampposts in the high street... Sadly I was just too early and the exhibition at the Museum doesn't open until next week... so I guess just Nando's would have to do... Anyway!

I often go to this Nandos for a quick bite to eat, the staff are always polite and the food usually comes quickly and tastes great. The staff are always more than happy to give extras like mayonnaise and ask how the meal is going rather than seem robotic and that they are following a script! Whilst the high street is hard to park on, it is possible to get three hours free parking in the car park behind Nandos.

Like this Nandos, as the fit and finish is better than some of the older sites.

I tried butterfly chicken for the first and was pleasantly surprised. There were warnings that it might not be big enough and the lack of bones is definitely appealing so I'll get it again. The chips were good as usual. #RateYourNandos

I really enjoyed my visit to Nando's Borehamwood. It could have been to do with the exceptional company, the lovely Marc Joss and his delightful friends who regaled me with stories of their cruises, or the lovely Dyson hand-dryer which makes a Nando's for me in all aspects. However, I believe it was the high quality of the food, the ease of parking, the wide array of extra sauces and my well-cooked wrap.

This was a spontaneous trip to Nando's because I was hungry, I managed to get my friend to cancel the pizza he'd ordered just in time, it was meant to be. I'd never been to this area before but my friend lived there and it was easy to get to from Hendon by train, just a few minutes' walk along the street from Borehamwood station

Recently reviewed this local branch so I won't go into too much depth. Main issue was the woman on the door who was quite rude and just didn't seem happy to be there. When we asked for a table for two she said 'No I have no tables', and just stared at us. I had to specifically ask how long it would take for a table before she volunteered any more information! Not impressed.

Good tip for parking is to park in the Borehamwood retail park which is just behind the Nando's. It's free for up to 3 hours and you can get your shopping done too!

This is the second closest Nando's to my home but I've only visited once (years ago when it first opened) which is quite shocking. I thought the situation needed to be rectified, and I was pleasantly surprised overall.

This was a very disappointing trip to Nandos. The decor was not great and the staff were a bit moronic.

My order came wrong, once I told the waitress, she said 'okay, let me go and check' and left the food on my table to get cold.

Parking in the retail complex is free for up to 3 hours and a very short walk away. This is a good reason to consider this branch over Edgware for example, where parking can be notoriously difficult.

As a group of 6 on a Tuesday afternoon, we were seated straight away on a luxurious round booth. There was hardly a queue to order even though the branch was over half full!

We parked in the car park in the cinema complex which is across the road from Nando's, a 2 minute walk away. Perfect for seeing a film and enjoying some peri-peri chicken.

Went there on Sunday at 21:00. Two couples. 4th Visit to the same Nandos.
Greeted well and seated in a nice round booth. Place was almost empty.
