Had chicken livers, corn on the cob and spicy rice, on this occasion the tills were not operational, couldn't use loyalty card to collect or redeem any points... Took forever to order via manual paper system.. Got there in the end... Better luck next visit I guess

Not quite my first Nando's of the year but my first review of 2015 (went to Kensal Rise last week and grabbed a free rewards wrap for lunch - notable for not being cut in half and looking like a burrito; it was excellent).

Onto the other Ealing Nando's and this involved a little walk down past the Common, where the Circus was in town! As I was already parked at Ealing Broadway, I decided to walk as it is only a 10 minute walk or so from there. The price here is (open 6am-midnight) £1/1hr, £2/2hrs, £2.50/3hrs, £3/4hrs and upwards from there with a Sunday offer of £1 (10:30am-5pm). Ealing Common Underground Station is also next door to Nando's - so keep a look out for it...

This Nandos is always busy at lunchtime despite the wide range of eateries in Ealing. The restaurant itself is quite small but seems to be able to handle the lunchtime rush very well. There is usually a bit of a wait for the food, but it always provides a good lunchtime fill. I normally like to go for the chicken burger here with spicy rice and piri piri chips.

This was my 2nd least favourite Nando's as they once made me wait an hour to get my chicken!! I wasn't even eating in as I hated that place but it turned out they had run out of chicken, this is going some years back so I always told everyone to avoid this branch. I won't anymore as it seems they have turned themselves around.

Parking was very easy in a side road, and it was free! I think you might have to pay during the day though.

This was my 99th Nando's and an interesting one since it was the first UK Nando's branch. This shows, since the restaurant is very small (similar in size to the 2nd branch: Earl's Court), and it has some interesting writing above the grill to mention its historic interest.

This turned out to be an interesting visit due to the outrageous scenes of violence in London which have affected huge areas of the capital (and the rest of the country).
