very very good experienece at the mile end nando's. we were very welcomed by the management team, especially after we told them that we were a new nando's society at QMUL. We were invited to talk to the patrao on friday and the atmosphere on the staff's behalf was energetic and upbeat. We quality of the food was brilliant with large sized chickens and a good quality pitta with chips that werent too hot but was kept warm. We will definitely be going back again with our society.

Had an evening event in the city just by Bank station and had about 45mins to spare before it so figured I'd try out a new Nando's - especially as I needed to eat before the drinks reception.

The last few times I've been to London, I've been squeezing as many Nando's in as I can (without feeling too sick) and so this evening was going to be no different - and Mile End was the first of four!

This one is easily found, just a couple minutes walk to the left as you leave Mile End tub station.

I've been eating at Nando's a lot recently, perhaps too much being aware of the nauseating proverb about familiarity breeding contempt. Nevertheless, I was in Mile End, one of the most intriguing and excitingly diverse areas of London, and I was hungry at lunch time.

The service at this restaurant is always quick even when busy - which is often. I really like the layout of this restaurant - big windows looking on to the park.

The guys working here are all super friendly and are great representatives for the Nandos. Really glad to have this restaurant in my neighbourhood.

Keep up the great work!

George

I would like to compliment one specific member of staff who's service was far beyond what was expected - after the waitress made an error in our order this member of staff, Mohinul, came to personally apologise and correct it. After this point he regularly checked up on us to ensure we were enjoying our meal, and made our experience at Nando's all the more better.

My 99th Nando's turned out to be a memorable one which impressed me for various reasons. To start with, the selection of colourful, dangled lights coming down from the ceiling give the restaurant a unique feel to it.

This store on Mile End road is positioned under a park bridge on the main road and is surrounded by restaurants and opposite a Budgens supermarket. Parking is a mission in this area but we found a car park 5 minutes walk away south at Mile End park leisure centre on Burdett road which is only £1 for 2 hours.

This Nando's is fairly busy throughout the day but you rarely need to wait for a table. The staff are usually friendly and helpful while the restaurant itself is clean and quite well laid out.
