Popped up to Brentwood from Romford, famous for the Sugar Hut as seen in T.O.W.I.E. 12 minute hilly walk from the station I passed a shop called Gemma Collins before I came to the high street. This branch is situated exactly like St Albans so I felt like it was the same place.

Having landed at Stansted around 8pm, Brentwood Nando's seemed the perfect destination and an easy drive saw us arrive by 9pm and park nearby on a bustling high street filled with restaurants and bars.

This Nando's is 7 or 8 years old and it feels like a relatively new one. Having said that, the décor is fairly standard and the artwork was not that impressive in my opinion. The staff were lovely and very enthusiastic, having weathered the Friday evening Nando's storm.

I will set the scene, its a sunny brentwood afternoon, partly empty nandos situated on the highstreet, the chicken is cooking, the peri peri is spicing. A group of 15 walk in and take place.

In Essex for a couple of days, so what better way to celebrate (??) than, as the locals would say, goinNandos! I got to Brentwood at about 9pm on this Tuesday evening, and the whole town centre was very quiet - including Nando's.

Quite a wet drab day when we headed in from the Brentwood artificial ski slope with a minibus full of hungry students. Parking isn't the cheapest but is quite plentiful near the Sainsburies store and cost us 1.70. It was a walk over to the store which is on the main street in Brentwood next to Mcdonalds.

This was my first ever visit to any Nandos anywhere and I was quite impressed. Staff were friendly but dispite only being half full there seemed like an air of chaos. I had to wipe down our own table the numbers were not clear. And we had to wave to the server to flag down our food and the yoghurt machine ran out. All understandable on a busy service but as I said it was half full at most. Food was excellent and quick and I'll happily go back.

Had to wait a bit too long for my chicken to arrive. Had to ask for more peri peri salt BUT when it came it was left (for about 2 minutes). Was amazed!
Extra Hot only in certain places. Had to add some more Extra Hot sauce. Overall all was average nothing super special but nothing to bad either.
