Took my 11 year old daughter to work for the day and said I'd treat her to lunch. She chose Nandos (not somewhere we go often or I'd choose). Had a lovely lunch. Will def return to this or another branch. Had a lovely 'girly' lunch with her. It was perfect, just what we were looking for. Thank you!

It was quite late when we exited the cinema on this Thursday night, so instead of the original plan of buying something to cook back at home, we took a quick trip to Cabot Place Nando’s. I went here a few times back when it was new, and didn’t really like it. Compared to the old Jubilee Place restaurant at the other end of the underground shopping/tube maze, it always seemed a bit stuck-up and soulless.

Nando's Canary Wharf Cabot Place is a restaurant my Mum and I regularly visit and we do so because time and time again the service and food is exceptional.

The restaurant is situated about a 5 minute walk from Canary Wharf DLR station at the top level of Cabot Place. To get there: go down the DLR stairs, take the exit by Starbucks and then go up all of the escalators. To the left of the escalator is Nando's. It is very easy to find (and I always get lost in Canary Wharf!).

Intended to go to Canary Wharf - Jubilee Place but this is under refurbishment until further notice. So bear that in mind if you wish to visit here soon. It was a short walk to Cabot Place which is located just above Canary Wharf DLR station and about a 7 minute walk from Canary Wharf underground station. I would not recommend on driving, but if you do want to, there are four underground car parks all within walking distance.

I was really excited to get there after walking around for half an hour and getting lost multiple times. Never been to Canary Wharf before and it is such a maze unless you know where you're going. My high spirits were shortly dampened by the bad attitude of the staff there however and it left a bad taste in my mouth.

As with the Nando's in Jubilee Place, I'd walked through this a couple times and never ventured up to the top floor to the restaurants, but now I was on a mission - up the escalators I went.

Should you ever wish to hang out with Fat cat bankers, capitalists and big businessmen who will look down at you head to canary wharf, If you should ever wish to escape them and have a safe place to hide out then head to this Nandos. It was a refuge in the storm. I wouldn't say parking is a possibility here from what I saw but there is an abundance of public transport.

There was a queue to order, typical given it was a busy weekday lunch, but the turnaround was quick. Had better, had worse; as average as a Nando's experience gets.

Underground Parking is available but must pay for a ticket.
Good underground connections via Jubilee Line and also DLR.

Lots of shops and bars available in and around canary wharf shopping centre.

As popular as the Canary Wharf Nando's is, it's amazing that it took them this long to clock on and open another one.
This second Nando's is situated above ground, at the top of the escalators at the end of the mall with the DLR Station.
We arrived just before lunch at about 11:50, and were served very quickly.
15 minutes later the place was heaving, with queues inside and out, and the staff fumbling to make room for everybody on the limited tables.

This branch had just opened when I went there, so of course It was clean and new and the location of it was great, It's on the top floor in a large circular dome building, you could actually see One Canada Square from the seat I was sat in! It was right above the dome! It was amazing, but yes, for such a great locationed Nando's I expected the food to be delicious.
