Service was extremely disappointing. Firstly I was told I was not allowed to order alcohol with the meal I chose (a £7+ salad). Then we were told they didn't know how to make the drink we ordered (which was on the menu) and that they would bring them to our table instead. After 25 minutes by which time my 3 friends had finished their burgers and wraps, I still had no salad or drinks. We got up to chase staff 3 times before eventually they were brought to us.

After a barren run of no Nando's visits in over a month while trying to save money, headed to Kings X after payday drinks with a couple of mates to get some peri peri chicken back in my life (admittedly, there had been attempts to get lunch from either Lime Street or One New Change earlier in Feb but queues were horrendous - look forward to Farringdon opening to hopefully be slightly more convenient!).

As rail station Nando's go, this one is very convenient for my station King's Cross to head back North, so a trip was made!

Entered the outlet, and was greeted and shown to a table. After a quick menu ponder, I pottered over and ordered. The whole process wasn't very enthusing, just seemed to happen and quite mediocre. After ordering, I returned to my table, picking out some not grubby cutlery.

For the second time in three Fridays, I had a Nando's double; lunch and dinner. This one was completely unplanned and after several post-work drinks. I've already written about this branch before and so the main reason for writing this review is to express my huge disdain for the one-chilli daily maximum on the loyalty card! Ahhh! I asked the Nandoca if there was any chance it'd work twice in one day and she said it wouldn't - which I knew would happen - so I wasn't too fussed.

This was my first visit to nando's Kingscross and the staff were very friendly and polite. The cashier was a trainee, beautiful face, she was very friendly, constantly smiling and made feel welcomed. She took orders very fast and explained how everything worked. The same trainee was at the back were I sat and kept asking if I required anything else that was very thoughtful. The food was superb and very fast.

This was my first visit to this Nando's and also my first Rate Your Nando's dinner, so really it was excitement all round!

#RYN5 was great. Lovely people, nice venue, great food AND I got to meet the Peri-Peri chicken.

It was very enjoyable and I bloody loved seeing that giant chicken. It pushed me that one step closer to getting that Nando's tattoo that I always claimed I would.

Thank you Nando's for providing such an excellent banquet for our love of your brand.

Excellent free food. They did well to cater to everyone's needs bringing a variety of choices. I was disappointed I didn't get any halloumi but I won't hold it against them.
I enjoyed meeting the big cock and getting a selfie.
I was also honoured to be part of the 5th anniversary quiz and still be the person who's attended the most dinners!

Attended the RYN 5 dinner at Kings Cross.

Upon arrival at the restaurant, I informed the staff member at the front of house that I was here for the RYN event and I was quickly ushered downstairs where there was pitta/humous/wings/olives and drinks waiting for us. We had the area to ourselves, which was a really nice touch as it meant that we could chat with the other attendees.

Thanks to rateyournandos I had a great time here and it was free! They brought out so much food i didn't know what or how much to eat! A great spread was put on and the Nandos staff did really well to cater for everyone. The night was really good and well organised! We won the quiz again and there was even a lovely Nandos cake at the end with a Nandos live person! Brilliant! Thanks again to all the rateyournandos crew for a great night!

#RateYourNandos #RYN5
Great night with the Team, meet loads of new people and got plenty of food provided to us, couldn't ask for more :P We were provided with plenty of new starters which were tasty.

The overall restaurant is very well laid out, we took control of downstairs enough for a big group if you ever want to go as a big group. I would like to add if your fairly tall be careful of the lamps downstairs. Hit my head a few times *facepalm.

Rate Your Nando’s’ 5th birthday celebrations brought me to the Kings Cross restaurant for the very first time. Despite it being local to where I work and where friends live, I’d somehow never wound up there before. This was no normal Nando’s visit though. It was planned well ahead, the food was being laid on for free, and members of staff even joined us at the tables.

#RYN5 was just amazing. It truly exceeded all expectations!

I'd been to the King's Cross branch less than a couple of months ago and it was a fairly average experience but this was something else. Lots of wings, lots of chicken burger/wraps/pittas and lots of chips. Oh, and halloumi too. AND birthday cake! Good to see some of the guys from Nando's HQ there (I think) and Barci!

So the only things I'm going to complain about to get them out the way is that I wasn't allowed any sweet mash or mango and lime flavour chicken.

If I could give a 10/5 for the friendliness of staff and service as a whole, that's exactly what I'd go and do. They gave 200% effort in providing us with as much variety of free food as we wanted and our desires were fully met, nay, exceeded.

Given that we were a large group I guess they dealt with us pretty well. Took them a little while to provide the downstairs area with any sauces - surprising to discover none there in the first place. Food started well but they seemed to rush the mains and some of the chicken looked pretty anaemic by the end! Not exactly the most appetising!

I attended the Fifth birthday of Rate Your Nandos, courteously invited by Marc Joss, I was one of the selected few to attend the oversubscribed event. The Nandos staff were very attentive and helpful. The restaurant was very clean and the links to transport perfect for me - right by Kings Cross station and therefore easy access for all.

This was a late Friday night meal prior to a night out. Service was pretty slow; there was a queue to sit down despite several tables being empty or just not cleaned yet. The queue to order was pretty lengthy too. Food was good, but took a while to come. Location is excellent, just a stone's throw away from Kings Cross / St Pancras stations. The layout of the restaurant is a bit awkward, though, with the service station a fair distance away from where we were sitting!

This was the day of the first time I have been able to make a Reviewer Dinner, so thought I would celebrate with a few Nando's as a warm-up! This took me to Kings Cross for my first of four Nando's during the day - a short walk from Euston and the Nando's is easily found in the shadow of Kings Cross Station.

Instead of sitting in alone on Valentine's Day I decided I'd just go to Nando's with my friend, we were originally going to go to a different branch but another friend asked to join our man date so we decided to go to King's Cross as it was more of an equal distance between us. I've been to this branch many times before, I've never seen it extremely busy but this time it was.

Chicken pitta extra hot

Soft drink

PLACE: Table 9. I wasn't a fan of the 'straunt layout, father Nando clearly had trouble designing the interior as the room is 'Z' shaped. Sitting in the booth by the door was drafty and cold. I also haven't been to a Nandloo for a long time but I'm happy to report that this one was airblade enabled- 7/10

I went to this busy Kings Cross for lunch during my lunch break from work. The place was packed and so was glad to get my order within 10 minutes.

Instead of going for my usual mango and lime sauce on a half chicken, I thought screw it I've been to South America I can handle spice now. 'Extra hot chicken!' I proudly proclaimed, as the cute staff member asked which spice I would like.

Never had a bad experience at this branch. Was totally full and were told we'd have to wait 10 minutes for our table, but within five minutes we had sat down and ordered. Friendly, helpful staff and great food. Always tastes better when it's free too - complained to Nando's about a horrendous experience at the Swiss Cottage branch (see previous review) and they gave me two free combination meals to apologise!

It was time for the next Rate Your Nando's Contributors dinner and this one brought me to the eatery right opposite King's Cross St Pancras station. It has a lot of places to compete with; many fast food chains and takeaways stand in our favourite restaurant's way but it stands tall in the face of adversity.

My first contributors' dinner. Maybe it's because I was with Marc and James, but it was the fastest ever service and biggest ever portions - so full!

It was my first time at Nando's and it was incredibly nice. I must say it was even better than I expected and the mayonnaise with extra extra hot sauce combination was amazing.

My second visit to this branch was a successful one as I finally got to check out the mammoth mosaic of which this branch is so proud as well as the rather large and stylish downstairs area.

One of the more pleasant Nando's I've been to of my 94...
I've been to this before and only been sat downstairs on a tiny table, but this is HUGE and they have the staff to cover it.
Very friendly and they triple checked the garlic bread/cheese, although it didn't come melted, hence losing the full marks.
The decor is just a splendid Nando's, and the toilet does indeed have an airblade!

Well the lovely people at Brent Cross Nandos provided me with a full platter Chicken check for a previous review and we decided to stop by the Kings Cross Nandos on the way home from work. Being right next to the station, this is a high volume restaurant but that doesn't stop them providing a top-notch service. The food is about as good as it gets, and FAST, so great if you're in a hurry. I had my usual; Halloumi, and a half hot with rice and coleslaw.

This store is a stone's throw from the train station of the same name and as such in the centre of the city and I would assume parking prohibitively expensive though there were 2 spaces on the road in front which could benefit takeaway collection. It stretches across 4 shop fronts and they had chairs and tables ont the pavement which I think is very hopeful in the middle of December!

My second Nando's visit saw me return to the holy Nando's that is Kings Cross, I say holy because its my favourite Nando's restaurant and one that I consider my kingdom. I was back in town working fairly local so what else to do at lunch other than to stop off for a cheeky Nando's before Christmas with some good work friends.

We decided to go to this branch because it’s right next to the station where we all met up. And we couldn’t be bothered traveling across London when we were all really hungry, plus it's rated the best in London.

We arrived about 3pm and the branch was only half full so we got seated on a table for four immediately. I was a bit angry that they seated us on the uncomfortable wooded chairs next to the window when there was a table for four with comfy chairs free just opposite us.

This was the second time that I have visited this branch in a week, I decided to go on the way home from Uni as I was really hungry! This was about 17:30. I discussed the Decor in a previous review so I won't bother talking about that.

This was the first of my visits to Nando's this week, I'd heard good things about this branch obviously from this site. It's right next to the train station so It was pretty easy to find, but it's not on google street view as I discovered when I tried to look for it on there... So don't trust it Google maps!

Great front of house service. All staff friendly and striving to help make it a good experience. Food seemed specially tast. Special mention to Gaz and Jean-Michel, but all the team were good. My favourite Nando's

Unlike many branches, it was possible to reserve a table for a large group the day before in order to avoid disappointment. There were no problems in terms of arriving as a big group on a Tuesday evening (even though it was Bank Holiday) and although the branch was quite busy, there was hardly a queue when we decided to order.

Wow! If I ever thought all Nandos look the same, I certainly don't now! Someone has really taken the time to make that restaurant look great. Lovely staff also, great location (right next to the station), comfy chairs and quality food as usual!
