I was in a huge hurry to get to university but I was so hungry I decided to pop in Euston branch on my way there, since it’s in such an easy location just opposite the station. I only had an hour so I had to rely on this branch being fast!

The staff were nice and friendly, greeting us, showing us to table, the usual. The Nandoca who served me was smiley and happy as were the rest of the staff, so no complaints there with 4/5 for friendliness.

The speed of the service (which I was relying on being fast) was thankfully really fast! The food arrived in just over 5 minutes! Really fast! Though there was a few minutes between my food and my girlfriends being brought over, so I had to sit there waiting with my food in front of me… Also they forgot to bring her perinaise so she had to go up and ask for it, after which they brought it over quickly and apologised. I’ll give the speed 3/5 because they forgot the perinaise.

The food tasted pretty good, my usual butterfly chicken with peri chips and garlic bread. The chicken was delicious, covered in extra hot sauce. The garlic bread was also awesome, crispy and garlicy. The portion of chips though was tiny, with the tiniest sprinkle of peri-spice on them, I’ve had other regular portions of chips twice the size of this one, they were nice though but not nearly filling enough. So I’m going to have to give food 3.5/5 it would be higher if not for the tiny portion of chips that massively disappointed me.

The décor is pretty average in this branch, though it has a wide variety of tables. Including large tables in the middle which are separated by rows of different Peri-Peri sauces, this is convenient in the ways that people sat at the table have easier access to them and also because it will be large groups of people at these tables they have their own sauces and there will still be plenty of sauces left for everyone else. It also has the high table which is along the window, I really like these seats, you can just sit and people watch while waiting for food/eating, and since it’s opposite the train station there’s always plenty of interesting people to observe. Because of these table features that I haven’t seen in any other branches I’ve been to I’ll give the décor 4/5

So overall, a good visit to this branch, really good that I can rely on it to be quick when I’m rushing to Uni! I was in and out in half an hour. So get yourself to Euston Nando’s!
