Very good personal service. We were a large party. when one item took a while to appear the manager (Olu or Ola i think? )personally dealt with it and came around a number of times to ensure we had all we needed. Our waiter David was also very friendly and responsive

It was a major trek by bus and 3 trains to this branch of Nandos in Lewisham. We arrived just before 5 on a Saturday afternoon and the branch was very busy. We had to wait a while before a member of staff showed us to our table. This was one of just a few free tables, and it soon became obvious why it was free. It was so drafty, from the water/ice machine behind Gerry and the window directly behind me.

As soon as we walk in, we were invited by a pleasant host and was taken to our seats. We had a group of 26 and we were given the whole of the top floor. We all enjoyed the food and the service was excellent. The food was tasty and we didn't wait long for our food. Special thanks to Carlos who served us.

Nando's 86 in Lewisham was a lot more local to me than most. Eight of us arrived by a mixture of transport including bikes, busses, the DLR and car (parking in the nearby shopping centre multi-storey). Sitting just off the high street in Lewisham town centre, the two level corner restaurant has a more appealing interior than most of the scenery surrounding it. Downstairs are the counters and quite airy, modern-looking seating areas, including an outdoor patio at the back.

In Kent for a couple days, so took the chance to have a little drive up to South London for a couple of Nando's - and first stop was Lewisham!

decoration 3.5
This Nando's is just off from the main pedestrian street of Lewisham and is close to the Lewisham shopping centre and to the Bus station. Situated on a corner it benefits from windows on both streets making this a light and airy store. A large metal chicken artwork is poised above the front door. The store interior whilst quite magnolia and in need of a bit of a facelift was neat and clean and had some impressive art on the walls and interesting carvings.

Not really any where to park near there unless you park in the shopping centre or on one of the back streets. Lots of bus stops nearby, cab office opposite, and not far from the DLR station. It is central to the shopping centre so ideal after a days shopping. There are a few pubs dotted about, it is a very central Nando's. GOOD TIMES!

This visit to a previously unrated Nando's was inspired by an initiative on the Nando's Lewisham Facebook page which saw the 100th fan receive a combo meal and drink to be used exclusively in this branch. The fact that the branch was unrated meant I was especially enthusiastic to claim the prize and delighted when it arrived at my house a matter of days after becoming the 100th fan.
