Our food was delayed and the manager came up to our table, kindly apologised and offered us free desert. He took his time to check on us to see if we were okay. To me that is great customer service.

Bit of a trek to get to this branch from Piccadilly Circus but I suppose with it being one of the most northern London Nando's it can't really be helped.

I parked around the back in Rectory lane a side street which looked a bit dodgy, was pay by phone and it cost me £2 for an hour which seemed quite expensive but guess it's London, very close to Edgware tube station should you use public transport.

Edgware - my old hunting ground. A diamond in a high street of dodgy all you can eat sushi and fast food. Well you didn't impress nor disappoint.

The meal of choice was the usual butterfly chicken with mash and garlic bread - I was feeling lavish so I also has some halloumi.

Edgware's my local branch but it's been years since I'd been there. It was the bank holiday Monday and I'd reach red reward day so headed down for dinner with a mate. This Nando's is located almost opposite the tube station and a stone's throw from the Broadwalk shopping centre (generally, there's almost nothing to do in Edgware).

This Nandos restaurant is in a fairly good location, close to the tube and bus station and there's nearby parking in the broadwalk. The restaurant itself was quite quiet as it was a mid-afternoon bank holiday and very wet out. Food came fast and was tasty as always. I went for the 5 wings with spicy rice and piri-piri chips.

Grabbed a takeaway, food came super fast and the guy behind the counter was very friendly. There is usually a blonde girl that works there who is probably hotter than the chicken. The restaurant is in a great location and is just opposite the station so can usually smell the peri peri as I get off the train from work. The chicken was well cooked, I prefer it when they take their time and the chips were made perfectly. They are running a good operation.

After easily finding parking on an adjacent road, we walked in to find a friend of ours who had already been seated by the greeter. We had decided to attend to see if we could win a #NandosTableForFree but sadly were unsuccessful. I ordered my standard meal which came quickly and was especially saucy which I enjoyed.

I'm a Nando's lover - this is not my local Nandos but ended up here last night. On coming in at 9pm I was told it closed at 10.30 (with no explanation as to why I was being told this) I thought she was saying that we couldn't eat - it took quite a bit to get her to tell me that I would need to be done by then. We then sat down to a dirty table which at no point during our entire time there was cleaned. Ordering was fine - told wings would be 15 minutes - it was 35 minutes.

Once more I found myself at Edgware Nando's for some peri-loved dinner. I arrived before my cousin at 7.45 and was told I had to wait 10 mins for a table. The waiting area had full blast air conditioning on, and with the weather being 15C outside all it managed to do was give me a headache. A couple who arrived after me got seated before me which I couldn't understand.

I happened to be with one of the executives of the rate your Nandos site. This executive initially mentioned as such, though was surprisingly shunned! After a few words with the boss, the Nandos worker in question welcomed us with a free starter of our choice.

Decided to come here again to meet some friends and was greeted by a lovely waitress who sorted me out with my table and let me keep my bicycle in the corner of the store. My friends arrived and we ordered to one of the most stone-faced people I've ever met - last time I checked it wasn't a crime to smile, but it seemed to be with this guy! I ordered 2 1/4 chicken breasts together with Chips and Spicy Rice.

Arrived here at 12 to catch up with a friend who I hadn't seen all summer - and he was paying! I was so excited. I ordered a Hot Butterfly Chicken with Peri Chips and Spicy Rice and a soft drink. I also added at the end I would like some mayonnaise brought to my table.

A mixed bag from Edgware as usual. Let's start with the positives given that it was a fairly busy Easter Monday evening.

We were seated immediately and there was no queue to order, all good so far. In fact, Sam's (the first to order) food arrived before the I had even got to the table, pretty good service.
The other big positive was that the ice machine actually served water, finally! We have all been waiting for this moment for years. Why did it not happen sooner?

I only ended up at this bran because I woke up extremely early and hungry and saw my friend was online, so I messaged him suggesting it, expecting him to say no, but then in a few hours we were in Edgware! It’s easy to find, just over the road from Edgware station on the Northern line, this is the first time I’ve been to Edgware, and I’ve no idea what’s in the surrounding area as I was only there for Nando’s.

Nando’s lunch followed Nando’s dinner the previous evening at my local branch Edgware. Friday lunch times can be tricky affairs (all the more so leading up to Christmas) but this was not the case as we were offered our choice of table. We swiftly placed our orders and low and behold, the usual big group problem was about to rear its ugly head.

It was a positive Nandos experience with lots of peri spice. I had a chicken burger (it was slightly rubbery and overdone, which was surprising considering the food came so quickly) and peri chips with garlic bread but it was enjoyable nonetheless. For once my requested mayo was on the plate which is a rare occurrence as I usually have to ask again for it. I also had a free quarter chicken which was very enjoyable and cooked to perfection.

A leaving party for my business partner could only be held in one place: Edgware Nando's, a.k.a. the place where it all began.

This Nando's has recently garnered a reputation for being a distinctly average branch, and I have to say that tonight was no exception.

I'm fed up of reviewing this Nandos. So average, I think you'll find it as the definition in the dictionary.

Must admit they did well to handle such a large table, although that is a tribute to the Nandos format.

Overall, great evening. The Nandos, however, Aalborg.

A fitting location for a leaving dinner which manager Vinnie was happy to cater for even if he wasn't working. For big groups, this branch is great mid-week as it doesn't get that busy and we were given the large table for 20 (well a bunch of tables shoved together) in the middle which was perfect.

As pointed out by other people who have reviewed this branch, it's as avergae as you can get... The only thing that made this bearable was the good company! :-) Met up again with RYN's own James again to see the delightful sites of one of his local Nando's. I feel for him... If this is the standard he has to live with then a permanent move back to Birmingham is in order.

This Nando's really is the epitomy of the word average. All the tables are quite close together (unless you're lucky enough to be given one of the two booths or don't mind sitting on one of the high tables with stools) and squeezing between them can sometimes be a nuisance. The food on this visit was particularly average, there was nothing fantastic about the chicken and my large peri chips were definitely short on peri salt in some areas.

Other than the fact that my chips were cold, the chicken was as tasty as ever and came fairly quickly. The atmosphere was electrifying and I couldn't get enough of the peri-naise concoction (that as a regular, I obviously mixed myself...). The most disappointing aspect of the restaurant, was the terrible chicken jokes they had written on the board. Also, serving water in a wine glass is only acceptable for the working class

This is my local branch and it was buzzing on this rather pleasant Sunday evening. We were told it would be a 10 minute wait for a table for 6 which was reasonably accurate.

Enjoyable meal, food came quickly, waitress was very attentive. Arrived at 10pm on a Saturday and was served straight away.

Note: did not receive the clearest phone signal (!)

Comments - Stand out in our weekly competition! What did you eat? Unique aspects? Parking/transport tips?: 

A very average visit. The food lacked Peri-Peri sauce (although that was easily fixed); and the waitress was strange in some of her responses, for example, when we asked for more mayonnaise, she asked 'are you sure?'.

As usual, staff interaction lacked.

The most disappointing aspect of this Nandos was the men's toilets, where the taps only stayed on for 1 second, and the hand-dryer did not work. The last time I visited, about a month ago, this situation was still the same.

Edgware is my local branch and it has changed quite a lot since my first ever Nando's back in the late 1990s!
Edgware Underground Station is a 1 minute walk away which can take you into Central London in 20 minutes.
Parking can be difficult at peak times, try the side streets off the high street or the Broadwalk Car Park during the day.

Very good food! Great for a day out with your Dad. Not too spicy but still had a kick. Some burnt bits but overall very good taste. Chicken not too fatty as well.

good banter with staff! veggie food good as always! able to park in the broadwalk which is about 5 min walk away, and free! food arrived very quickly, had been seated for 5 mins max...i do not think this is so good because does not allow much time for socialising! however good if you want quick/cheap meal.

Quite friendly staff, but, no smiles compared to other branches I have visited. The seating was quite uncomfortable and I did'n't feel like the Nandos spirit was completely there.

Parking can be quite difficult, have only been a few times and have always parked in a residential area, 5 minutes away.

I have enjoyed my visits to this Nandos, although the staff seem to be a bit clueless. No indepth customer interaction just the simple processing of the order. The restaurant is not the biggest Nandos and can therefore get a bit busy during peak times. The food, great, but would maybe avoid in big groups or during the busiest hours, such as Saturday nights!

Edgware is not my prefered destination for a night out but when a Nandos is required it has to do. Saturday night, not too much of a wait for the table although table was dirty when we sat down. There was not enough space for people to stand whilst waiting to sit. When wanting to fill up on water the machine was not working, so the waiter guided me to the tap. Of hot water. Neeedless to say was not overly impressed.

Very average restaurant. Nice refurbishment recently. Food generally comes quickly, though staff could be slightly friendlier. Only ever been recognised by one member of staff (Carlos - top guy 5/5) despite almost weekly visits for years!

Parking can be difficult but the Broadwalk is free for 2 hours and is a 5 minute walk from the restaurant!
