As we walked towards the nandos, it was as if a holy light created by God himself surrounded the restaurant. We sailed in on Angel wings, pulled by the beautiful smell of Peri Peri chicken which blessed us with its scent. We made our order to the holy witness at the front desk and ecstaticly walked to our table in a haze of chicken europhia.

This Nandos meal was one of the best- the food was expectional and the sauces exquisite. I and my colleagues, some of whom had never had the true Nandos experience before, all enjoyed the chicken, chips and atmosphere immensely.

Nando’s 103 lead us to our third consecutive out-of-town “leisure park”, this one built around an old lido rather than an IKEA store. The last time I visited this part of North Finchley was a whole fifteen years ago, and other than now having a Nando’s, the place hasn’t changed much. Five of us headed to Finchley after work on a Friday. I came by tube and then bus. None of the bus stops were particularly close to the leisure park.

Ordered a lemon and herb chicken and quinoa salad. The chicken definitely wasn't lemon and herb. Was much spicier and burnt my tongue! They insisted it was lemon and herb. Ended up changing it for just plain chicken.
Avocado was far too hard and shouldn't have been served.

Although the food was disappointing, the staff were friendly and helpful

Seated 20 minutes after the initial 20 minutes we were told smack bang in the middle of the restaurant. A table of 8 for two tables of four, no real partition.

Confusing waiting area, not sure whether people we're queuing to order, waiting for take away or waiting for a table.

We (6 of us) were waiting quite a while to be seated, which seemed to be down to an inability to move smaller tables together to form larger tables. Once we were seated the food took a standard length of time to come.

Lack of corn on the cob was a shame but on the whole fine. Staff seemed in a daze most of the time though - aimlessly wandering around or just standing there not realising they were blocking the gangways between tables. Took the person taking my order a good few times to actually get it right.

9 amigos showed up for a traditional post party Nando's remedy and were given exactly what the doctor ordered! A table of 9 was conjured for us out of two lesser tables (booth and single) and there was no cue to order execept the one we had made ourselves. The staff were helpful and the service was very quick, first meal about 5 minutes and the last about 5 minutes after that max!

Well, some friends took me to this really good chicken restaurant which was 5 minutes driving, we got there and parked easyli. We were 8 people but the staff found a place and joined other table..so we seated as soon as we arrived. I ordered half chicken with chips, garlic bread and lemon and herb sauce, the sauce was one of the less spicy they had but still it tasted excellent.
So..my first time in Nando's but definitely not the last one, I will go back before i come back home..

It was my second day in London, and luckily, a sunny one. We went to this place, that my friend had been talking about, not knowing what to expect. We didn't have to wait for our table, even though we were 8. The staff gave us an extra table so we could fit comfortable.

Great nando's feed after a game of tennis, we drove to our local. The service was speedy and we got everything in good time, they even gave us free perinaise when we forgot to order it. Great service!

Like Brent Cross, it's best to drive - not take public transport or walk. There's free parking which is an advantage but I think it's always best to park 5/10 minutes away because a walk leading up to a Nando's is invariably delightful. Lots of children around, they've probably just come away from bowling or cinema activities so it can become rather rowdy, or at least noisy enough to be concerned about decibels.

It was a busy evening, we were lucky to get a table. Food did take a while to come, though (although claiming my free half chicken meant I wasn't too bothered!)

This store is just off the north circular and benefits from a large free car park which also services a Hollywood Bowling centre and a Vue cinema, it is hemmed in by a Frankie and Bennies and a Mcdonalds. There is a small seating outside seating area to the front of the store.

Boxing Day so was pretty empty. As there's a big cimema/bowling complex there it's usually pretty hard to park. But today we parked outside the door! Ordered my usual, but was much hotter than normal for some reason. Although there were hardly any people there, the woman serving told me it would take 15 minutes for the food to arrive. It was much quicker though.

The place was packed and hardly anywhere to stand and wait. A lot of takeaway orders in this one too. We were seated as soon as a table was free but was very cramped and where we were sat was where they were choosing to pass dirty plates down to other staff to clean. Quite a wait on the food time. Staff were friendly enough and the guy who took our plates away and took our dessert order was extremely friendly.

The free parking right outside this branch in the Lido complex is a huge plus along with the cinema and bowling alley which allow for a great day or evening out. This does mean that the branch tends to get very busy and big groups usually have to wait for a table as the branch itself isn't that big.

My first visit to this Nando's without an extreme hangover!

I've had a few meals at this branch, with a fair number of complaints about all my previous meals here. One time my food arrived stone cold, as if it had been left outside for ten minutes - one member of staff quite aggressively insisted I'd started my meal and couldn't send it back!

Needless to say this was resolved, and this review will cover my most recent visit.

Good food, great company. A very well known Nando's to the site production team. Again did not queue. Food hot, plenty of peri salt. Forgot the Perinaise! Plenty of chicken. Looking forward to a whole chicken very soon!

Had to wait 15 minutes for a table which is to be expected on a Saturday night. The food was excellent as the optimum amount was served. I left truly satisfied having demolished every possible edible part of the chicken.

Very concenient and consistently good quality of food. Unfortunately gets RIDICULOUSLY busy on Friday and Saturday nights (especially during school holidays) and so usually takes 30-45 minutes just to get a table, 10 minutes to order and then about 10 minutes to wait for the food...so don't go if you want a quick bite!

Was working in High Barnet for a couple weeks back in 2007 and almost lived on Nando's in the evening! It was before there was any Extra Extra Hot sauce too - looking back, oh how the times have changed :-)

I was staying in the Comfort Hotel on the same complex as this Nando's, so within a minute I was munching chicken... There's also a Hollywood Bowl and a Vue cinema on the same complex - so plenty of activity to do in the evenings with loads of free spaces.

A nicely decorated Nando's with food to match. Go at a quiet time of day and the meal will be second to none. Service can slow down somewhat during busy periods, but is generally good. Conveniently located in a leisure park with free parking.
