The lady from the Bar lied to me, i told her i want nothing spicy and spicy i got, and the guy who is serving on the table was rude.

I was there with a few friends and I was look after by the lovely and very friendly manager called Sofi.
I was very happy with the quality and the service of this restaurant.

Looking forward to celebrate my son's birthday party here.

No request was too much and very prompt .

Will surely return and looking forward to be served by Sofi and her staff.

Greet time.Thank you
Aran

Got here just about 4pm. No one came to greet me. Okay picked table seven and ordered my meal. Guy didn't even question it knowing there was no host who would have given me a table. Said table also had a disgusting blob of ketchup on it.

Food arrived in 7 minutes but it was all warm. Large portion of chips and are they grilling the garlic bread like paninis in a flat toasting iron? Very interesting. Food was okay though.

Nando’s 91 is in a part of London that I’ve never been to before, a part of London I don’t recall hearing of before. When I saw “Kingsbury” on my list, I presumed it was a town I’d never heard of, not a station towards the West end of the Jubilee line. The tube is how I reached Kingsbury, a Muslim-centric area near Wembley. The Nando’s itself is by a big roundabout, on the end of the same street as the tube station, surrounded by plenty of takeaway places.

Parking is the worst.

Food is pretty good. Just sometimes with the phone orders.. You place them 20mjns prior you enter the restaurant and there is a huge queue and you end up waiting another 15 mins minimum .. Annoying when your hungry and your car may not be parked well.

THE NEW ITEMS ON THE MENU!!!!!! - I'm literally obsessed with the Sweet Potato Wedges that I was served yesterday.
There's so many reasons why I instantly ate every single sweet potato wedge and didn't even touch my burger until they were gone..
- Its Baked! - super soft on the inside with a flame grilled toasting on the outside - gives you an amazing taste and texture that's completely different from the sweet potato mash

Despite this being one of the closer branches to me, I'd never been here before (probably because Kingsbury is a pretty miserable place to be on the best of days!). This Nando's is on Kingsbury Circle, a mere one minute walk away from Kingsbury Station (Jubilee). I hit this branch on the way back from work because i was heading to the England-Mexico u20 match at The Hive (usual home of Barnet).

So onto the second Nando's of the night and this meant a little drive to Kingsbury... Certainly not as nice a place as Walthamstow that's for sure!

Perfect Nando's experience. Interesting area, too - lots of parks nearby, wide pavements on the high street. Actually, best and most varied high street I've walked along. Lots of shops n bars, very diverse, exciting bustling place. Good public transport links and cash machines. Different décor to other identikit Nando's restaurants, more of a classy eaterie, and very comfy chairs.

A staff member admitted that the 'customers come first' attitude departed with the recently outgoing manager and was replaced by a more profit-centric attitude

The staff were friendly, the chicken wrap was good. The sweet potato mash wasn't hot throughout but I chose not to complain about it. However the avocado was totally unripe and I complained and had a ratatouille instead which was delicious.
Everything else was good!

After struggling to find parking on the road which leads up to Kingsbury Tube Station (Jubilee Line), we managed to find a space on Honeypot Lane which was free rather than the pay and display spaces on the high street itself.
This Nando's is quite different from others in North London and offers a range of seating on normal chairs, stools and sofas.

A splendid summer day at Kingsbury Nando's, what a fine way to start the month.

The staff were pretty friendly, decent service with a smile, was a bit irritated to see the person who had just served my friend his food begin to clear other tables as oppose to going back to the counter so that the time between the arrival of our meals would be minimal. Apart from that, no complaints.

Passing this branch on the way to work I noticed that it is always full so I decided to go for lunch and was very impressed with the food. The decoration and friendliness of staff was nothing to write home about but the quality of the food was really impressive. Very tasty and my friends all thought the same. I would certainly go again and recommend it to all.
