Comments - Stand out in our weekly competition! What did you eat? Unique aspects? Parking/transport tips?: 

Less than 10 minute walk from St Mary Cray station, we took the scenic route via the houses after following a guy who said it was easy to get there. The only restaurant in a retail park, I suppose it's a niche market for the locals who find it easy to get there than into town for other places to eat. Lucky we got there when we did as the queue built up just afterwards with people waiting up to twenty minutes or more.

The lady who was there to greet us was very enthusiastic, attentive and not to mention very cute. Yes we could have the table by the window and we'd let her know if we needed anything. Ordering was an easy process and I used a green reward to end up with a half chicken, sweet mash and garlic bread which arrived in 12 minutes. There wasn't a lot of mash but it tasted nice. The chicken was well done a d the garlic bread was toasted to perfection.

I had also ordered a coconut gelado. When I asked the young lady if I could have it, she went away and came back to ask if I wanted then or would wait for my meal to finish. I declined to retort with the fact I had asked her to get it for me initially with a request that she bring it then. Other that than minor hiccup everything else was fine.

The toilets.. always let a Nando's down. Staff are happy to smile and serve you out front but you go to use the toilet and it's like a 3rd world country back there... broken doors, no loo roll, wet and dirty floors.
