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

My first impression of this Nando's was that it is a lot smaller than I expected. It is one of the most recent openings, and right next to a cinema, so I expected a sprawling restaurant able to handle post-film stresses. Perhaps this was all the space Nando's could buy at this location, but it was jam packed at 3.30pm in the afternoon! We got a table after about 10 minutes, and soon went to order.

Staff all did their job well, with the main standout being the manager, who seemed like a very friendly chap, and was giving the people in front of me some helpful tips as they ordered. The food came quickly and was considered very good by everyone at my table. The highlight for me was the garlic bread, which was the best Nando's garlic bread I had ever tasted - piping hot, perfectly browned, generous helping of garlic butter right across. It misses off on a 4.5/5 though because the extra quarter breast I ordered really didn't have much Extra-Hot sauce on it - it was like a plain one by the time I got through the skin.

As for decoration, it is a typical new Nando's in the suburbs, with decent splashings of African art, but no unique features to speak of. I would return though, but not before checking out the other Nando's in Greenwich!
