I go to University nearby & originally from Essex. Back home my boyfriend & I had our first date in Nandos & it's been our favourite place to eat ever since! We always love visiting Nandos when he comes to visit, I think the staff may recognise us now! The food is always fantastic quality, great service with a smile & always such a treat. Thanks Nandos!

travelled by tube to Brent Cross station. bit of trek to the shopping centre, and not a walk I'd want to tackle on my own, in the dark. this branch is situated on the top floor the centre, fairly close to the escalator. when we arrived there was tiny queue but we soon reached the front & had our table allocated right near the door. the same story with ordering. everything went very smoothly. the lack of paper serviettes was soon rectified.

It's been 7/8 years since I was first/last here not that I remember that visit.

Staff kept us waiting at the entrance but when someone did arrive to show us a table, they gave me table 8 in the window which I asked for. I hate sitting at tables like that where everyone passes by and can see you eating but it beats waiting for another table or having to sit upstairs.

We ordered the boneless platter, but we were rather disappointed with the amount of chicken that we got. That's not Nando's fault, we just expected an extra breast. The chips were crisp and hot and we were constantly staring at a fit bird on another table. I like to emphasize my actions.

We had a table close to the ordering station which we were grateful for. They were quick, we were comfortable and I'd definitely go back.

On my back to Brum meant a little drive round the North Circular so it would have been rude not to pop into Brent Cross! This Nando's is on the second floor (or floor 3) and is nearest the blue section. So if you want to park as close as possible go for Blue 3 :-) Otherwise, it's only a couple minutes walk from wherever you park - and there are thousands and thousands of free parking spaces to choose from!

Well at least there is free parking...
The restaurant was cramped, tables way too close together. Wall and seats looked dirty :-/
I probably wouldn't go back tbh

I've dined at this Nando's more than any other but it's not really that convenient. I don't know what it is about this place but it varies every time. There always seems to be lots of people, yet it's much worse at lunch time. The food quality has swung from excellent to dour, the service has been all over the spectrum too, it must be to do with the vast numbers of hungry clientele.

It was everything I wanted because I had a desperate - and despairing - desire to eat Nando's! However, I was sadly disappointed that it was not hot enough. I always opt for medium-level spice, perhaps it's time to go hotter?! The staff were friendly enough, despite repeating everything twice, and sometimes when you're tucking into your chicken you really don't want to answer that all is good, thank you very much!

Very disappointing. Had to pour on extra sauce, which I suppose isn't such a bad thing. Still had the general quality to be expected from Nando's, just seems that this time it was rather perfunctory. A lot of people, lots of children. Don't like Brent Cross overall because it's too busy but Nando's is often a great reward for the rigours of shopping there. If you don't know the area, you have to drive which is a hassle anyway as the roads are painful.

Definitely worth the long wait for the food, this was a contender for the best working lunch I've eaten in eight years. Generally Brent Cross is average Nando's yet, on this occasion, it just captured the elusive zeitgeist. Will remain long in the memory, this one time.

It had been a while since I'd been to this branch and service seems to have dropped off since its early days. Food took quite a while to come despite the restaurant only being a little over half full. There seemed to be a great deal of rotation between the staff from the meet'n'greet to till operator and to waiting; I noticed it meant some customers kind of wandered in and set where they wished. Staff were pretty good to us (aside from the wait for food).

This was a special Nando's for me - having spent the last year out of the UK and returning only occasionally for Nando's one-night stands, today felt like the resumption of a meaningful relationship that had ended prematurely before. Personal stuff aside, my friend and I chose the Brent Cross branch with some trepidation, given his previous poor experiences and some mixed reviews on the site.

Located in the heart of a large shopping centre that is losing its relevance and appeal by the day, this branch is always packed at weekends. Had a disappointing service incident around redeeming my loyalty points which overshadowed the last visit. Nevertheless is a chicken mecca in an oasis of average dining options. Certainly provides better value for many when compared to nearby Leon, Wagamama and Burger King. And is a great deal more satisfying than neighbouring Pret!

I used to work in Brent Cross and used to get Nandos takeaway with some colleagues every couple of weeks. It was always amazing (probably skewed by the fact it came after a busy morning at work!), we phoned ahead and on all but one occasion it was ready by the time we arrived to collect it. It's a pretty new branch - but lighting could be a bit better.

I'd advise people to think very carefully before visiting this restaurant. Every time I've visited it, two things have happened: i) despite there being many empty seats inside (today I counted 12 downstairs alone) there is always a queue outside the door to get in ii) the staff seem to be (how can I say this politely?) not the most intelligent.

No queues outside (rare for this branch) so decided to grab a quick lunch. My food took so long to come I actually stood up to go and get it myself (it had been ready to be brought to my table for around five minutes.) However, it was just about worth the wait. Delicious!

Free parking galore at this west London shopping complex.

Can mean a bit of a stroll to get to the restaurant depending upon which part of the car park your in to get to the food court.

The Restaurant has a lot of light pine wood and was quite light and airey, despite being on the second floor of the complex it has a further floor of seating above. There is a large wooden tree decoration up the middle and onto the ceiling.

Good use of additional seating upstairs, but at times extremely busy, can't really sit and chat after your meal.

Very upsetting experience as they had run out of the halloumi/portobello mushroom wrap option so had to settle for a veggie burger. Other than that all very average. Expect long waits in the day.

Located in the restaurant area of the Brent cross shopping centre, this Nandos is well connected via road, tube and bus! Plenty of ample free parking and well connected via public transport. The restaurant is quite small so can gets full during busy lunch and dinner periods every weekend. Food is very nice and can recommend visiting after a long afternoon of shopping.

Well I walked in needing a table for three... was seated somewhat near the entrance which I didn't like, so I asked for a change, the waiter agreed with absolutely no problem. We had huge bags of shopping, fortunately there was just about enough space (although one of my bags had to hang behind my chair and people kept bumping into it). I must say, I liked the music and me and my two friends had a tiny little mini-rave :p (one of them is half portuguese haha).

Having never been to Brent Cross shopping center before, I struggled to find this branch, I had to actually use a map which is upsetting because I usually have a Nando's sense.

On arrival at 2:30pm on a fairly busy Monday, we were seated straight away which was a pleasant surprise. Avoiding peak lunch hours is key here but the branch was busy nevertheless. Table 26 is right at the back and we did feel isolated at times as staff were not hovering nearby as much as in other areas. This became a slight problem when my food arrived as it then took a fair few minutes before I could ask for some mayonnaise. Apart from that, no complaints.

Getting seated straight away in this extremely popular branch is a rarity! As a party of 2, luckily we were seated within 5 minutes and there was no queue when we went up to order which was unexpected given how busy it was.
Unfortunately on this particular day, they had no houmous with peri drizzle, just when I really fancied it! My half chicken did make up for it, however; dripping in sauce and decent portions of chips to go with it.

Right in the middle of Brent Cross food court. There are other options around but no idea why you would choose them over Nando's! Close as can be to the multistorey, and right at the top of the escalator down to the shops - this Nando's is ideally situated for a day out shopping. Decor was spot on and featured some interesting light fixtures and artwork.
