My order was not fulfilled as it was sent back as they gave me a plain chicken wrap when I brought peri-tamer plus paid for cheese. I then sent it back and still was yet to be satisfied as they did manage to change it to peri-tamer but did not add the cheese in which I paid for. In the end all the time that was taken and the service I was given I barely touched my food. So I paid not to eat technically.

5 year old birthday party. A manager came over and demanded that we stopped what we were doing and took control of a 2 year old who screamed. As other people were eating. Standing over me telling me that I must make him stop the noise to not realise that I wasn't even his mother. To make it worst he did not even realise that the child was autistic.

Ever been to a Nando's and walked out because the service was catastrophically bad? Well that's what happened to me here...

This store opposite the O2 Academy in Brixton is most famous for its destruction during the Brixton riots when thugs, chavs and scum of the earth marauded and attacked this bastion of civilisation. As such it has been recently refurbished and its decoration is great and it has a lovely patio area out the front.

Exit right at Brixton tube station and head to the O2 academy which this branch is opposite. They have security there which is funny if they're trying to stop people running off with sauce bottles or plates.

Happened to stumble across this Nando's as my bus stopped right outside it, so had to pop in for dinner. Had extra-hot butterfly breast with rice and peas, which was great but not enough - next time I'll have to remember that the rice is only small! The service was good, staff were really friendly and cleaned a table right away so me and my friends could sit down.

This visit to Nando's turned out to be the first of four in a jam packed evening of peri-peri and chicken! And with this being my 250th different branch, what nicer place to visit than Brixton?

I arrived here at about 6pm after finding the restaurant easily, with just a few minutes walk from the tube station. This Nando's is next door to a Fitness First and opposite Brixton O2 Academy. Also just down from the tube stop is the Ritzy Cinema and Electric Avenue.

A great Nando's, perfect atmosphere, felt like a place people come to socialise rather than just a meeting place, lots of character. Good Nando's food that we all expect and love.

Pre gig dinner with James, long wait to be even asked for our name for table list, James had to ask after 15minutes, but then manager swiftly got us a table, once ordered waited at least 15mins until again asked manager who very swiftly dealt with the food himself, which was unexpected but very much appreciated. Definitely got my spicy taste buds going with my hot double wrap and hummus to start, satisfied to say the least.

This Nandos branch is opposite the O2 Academy in Brixton so there's no excuse not to eat there before going to Brixton academy!

Looks amazing in there now! The best Nandos in the country. No doubt in my mind.

Nice to see the new decoration after the riot damage back in August. Still, despite being new and clean, the decoration is pretty average compared to other recently opened branches, and I wouldn't say Nando's went all-out on this one. There was no eye-catching artwork and nothing unique about the tables and their setup (perhaps Nando's don't want to invest too heavily incase more riots happen in the area!).

I always get the best service here - greeted at the door with a friendly smile and a 'how are you?'

Spacious restaurant. The chicken is always cooked to perfection here, never overcooked. Love sitting outside the front in the sunshine, love sitting in the window in the winter.

The only bad thing is that I have to avoid it when there's a gig on at Brixton Academy as the queues are massive.

Not bad at all. It's right across the road from the Brixton Academy (cynically now called the O2), so dinner before the gig is usual making it very busy at times. This can be annoying if you're not going to the gig. Otherwise enjoyable.
