The date is a guess, as it was a few weeks ago, but it was a weekday dinner to the recently refurbed Dalston branch... and most of my observations match those of Pompey's recent visit.

This store on the main road is impressive with its decor, the front has intricate and ornate tiles in the waiting area, with some unusual colourful buckets with padding over to use as stools. The store is bright and airy with a sunlight in the roof and colourful lights. There was a good quality of art on the walls the only draw back was the seating was very close which made it hard to navigate around the store and for much of the time i was stuck in the corner unable to get out.

Just want to thank the staff at dalston who demonstrated exemplary customer service. Staff : Lawren, Kevin and Claudio were very kind to me considering I was having a very bad day. I'm so happy I came into this store today.

What an utter shambles, definitely in my top five worst Nando's list, I would not recommend this branch to anyone, feel sorry for the locals but they're probably used to it.

just a short walk from Dalston Kingsland Overground station. I wonder now, why I bothered. this is the worst Nando experience I've had so far. Chaotic as soon as you enter. are they queuing to order? or for a table? and no greeter in sight. once we'd been allocated a table, I attempted to place my order with L A.......told me my quarter chicken with 3 sides wasn't a combo ......I KNOW....so cancelled the whole thing until I insisted and had to repeat the whole thing again.

So the fourth Nando's of the evening took me to another beautiful (!) part of the world and this time it was Dalston... Blimey, Mile End, Whitechapel, Bethnal Green and Dalston? I know how to live the high life...

It was a very exciting day.
We went there before the Arsenal game and I enjoyed it a lot.
It was my first time at Nando's and the food was succulent. My English friend is a Nando's expert and he recommended me the best kind of food in Nando's.
In Madrid where I live there is no Nando's,so.....WHAT A PITY!!
I absolutly have to come to the UK to go to Nando's again!!
It was fantastic!!

Although Dalston Nando's is not located in the most glorious part of London, it is well located if you want some peri peri chicken before or after an Arsenal match with the overground only 2 stops from Highbury and Islington or a 5 minute drive.
We were able to park nearby and as it was Sunday, parking was free!
