Halal: 
No
Nearby: 
This Nando's is right outside Farringdon train and underground station.
Parking: 
After 6pm weeknights (and all weekend) there is no congestion charge and most of the on-street parking bays do not charge either, so around this time, spaces only a few minutes walk away should be easily found.

It somehow took me over a year to visit the new Farringdon Nando's since it opened last year and I have to say it was worth the wait. This restaurant isn't particularly busy on the weekend and so getting a table wasn't an issue and it gas to be one of the closest Nando's to a station in London for a dedicated convenience.

My double wrap was expertly packed and delicious. The peri chips were well-cooked and plentiful, making the food a 5!

A nice Nandos in central London which is very quiet on a Sunday night. Outside of week days parking is easy almost right outside.

Dinner after a drink to see what the fuss is about with this new branch. It was okay I mean yes it was nice and clean and the downstairs area was very well done... the single seaters outside will be good for the office workers and it's somewhere to relax.

One of the newest Nando's, and right on the doorstep, so an after work visit was arranged with fellow reviewer Gerre

I ordered a 1/4 chicken mango and lime with chips and fino-slaw which is a new side dish. The chicken was cooked well, and coated in an abundance of sauce. Chips were good, and the fino-slaw quite interesting. It's a collection of seeds and lettuce, drizzled with salad dressing. I would certainly get this again as I quite enjoyed it!

Normally, I’m unimpressed and unexcited when I hear about a new Nando’s opening in my home city of London. After all, the place is already teeming with them. With Farringdon, it was a different story. This is less than a five minute walk from where I work, so would be very convenient for a cheeky lunch.

Was staying in Maidstone for the evening, so as with Old Street, it was a short(ish) drive up to London, so why not head to this newest of all Nando's? After 6pm weeknights (and all weekend) there is no congestion charge and most of the on-street parking bays do not charge either, so after finally navigating through all of the traffic and roadworks, a space only a few minutes walk away was easily found.

This store is right next to the Farringdon Underground and Train stations on a pedestrianised road amongst other eateries. The exterior wasn't that impressive and quite dark with a row of seats facing against a narrow table on the outside window. Inside it is similar with the row of chairs facing a window and also against a side wall.

The much-delayed latest Nando's in the capital opened this week, and I headed up to it after work on Friday for an early-ish dinner. It's extremely well located, almost next to Farringdon Station on the corner of Turnmill & Cowcross. Turn left if you're exiting the tube station (Met, Circle, H&C) and right if you're coming from the Thameslink entrance (there'll also be Crossrail from 2018/9).

The first thing I noticed about this new Nando's was its proximity to both the underground and overground stations. You can get the hammersmith and city, metropolitan or circle line to Farringdon. the Nando's is located to the left if you're coming out of the underground station and the right if you are coming out of the overground station. So, the location was great.
