This Nando's is just a few minutes walk down from High Street Kensington tube stop. There's an Odeon in Kensington right by the Nando's.
Parking: 
Tesco Superstore is half a mile walk away, which offers two hours free parking for customers. Not sure what the minimum spend is though. Otherwise the Town Hall by the tube station offers parking from 9am-6pm at £4.40/hr, with an overnight rate (6pm-9am) of £4.40.

Such an amazing experience! Staff were so friendly. A guy called Eve gave me a free takeout drink cup! Food came out so quickly despite it being a Friday evening. Would deffo come here again. I ordered chicken platter and corn on the cob sides (which tasted amazing!) unfortunately they were out of chicken livers but the food we did have was amazing. There was a car park around the corner which was only £1 per hour! Within 5 minutes of starting our meal we were asked if everything was okay.

Entered the outlet, and was shown to a table. After a short ponder of the menu, I went to order.

Only my second visit here ever, the last time being maybe a year ago and this branch is definitely one of the best in terms of decorations, size and friendliness of staff.

Wandered down to this Nando's during my extended Friday lunch break. It's located almost at the SE corner of Holland Park, on High Street Kensington - a few minutes walk from the station (Circle, District). You could easily miss this Nando's as it has a really drab exterior - a few unloved tables sat outside in the cold late-Autumn air, which made me wonder why they're even there!

So onto my third Nando's of the evening and this took me to High Street Kensington. It's only a few minutes walk down from High Street Kensington tube stop, but seeing as though I was at Earl's Court, this was just half a mile walk away. There's an Odeon in Kensington as well which is right by the Nando's. As with Earl's Court, there is the same Tesco Superstore half a mile walk away, which offers two hours free parking for customers. Not sure what the minimum spend is though.

This store in the posh area of Kensington high street, very close to numerous outdoor/camping shops!!! and just south of historic Holland park so ideal for grabbing a take away to sit out in the park. The front has large windows that open up to the high street but are shaded by retro chic pull down cloth blinds over the pavement which I liked. Upon entering you have the till area on the left with sauce bottles and other containers as decoration which really worked well.

This branch is about a 10 minute walk from High St Kensington Tube (turn left when you exit) which might explain why it is one of the quieter central London branches. This means it's a good lunch option if you want a quick fix. The most peculiar decor aspect is the huge panel of glass by the stairs which protects a series of large barrels from the peri-peri flames! The downstairs area is deprived of natural light yet rather quaint with lots of cool artwork dotted around.

As soon as I saw this branch was open I hopped in the shower and begged my girlfriend to come with me! And soon enough I was on my way there. Unfortunately the closest tube station is on the Circle and District lines which are the worst lines ever, it took us 20 minutes to get from Earls Court to High Street Kensington on the tube, though it’s only a 10 minute walk.
