The first time I came to this branch it was closed due to technical issues the same day I went to Hornchurch. Such a long journey and I couldn't even go to another Nandos that day as it was dark and cold. This time I was in luck, the branch was open the only problem was the lift not working and taking me to the wrong floor so I had to get the stairs in the end.

We were seated quickly, the person showing us our seats was friendly enough.
Food was good, myself and my sister both enjoyed our meal with no worries.
Staff were very polite and we will go back again !

:)

Brought the mains about 1 minute after I had received my started (hummus and pitta). The rice was so poor it tasted like plastic and the burger lacked sauce.

Staff were good, but noticed there has been a change recently, and there weren't many familiar faces!

Other than that, a standard trip to Romford Nando's.

This was my second visit to Romford (first visit must have been around 10 years ago which also happened to be my first ever Nando's visit!). I had arrived some 30 minutes late due to traffic so my friends had luckily queued up and were already sat waiting at a table. The restaurant appeared very busy with people waiting and all tables occupied although as we were seated upstairs it didn't seem as chaotic.

Romford Nando's is set in quite a nice amusement complex, with a massive car park attached. It reminded me quite a bit of the Galleria in Hatfield, with parking outside as well as inside. You can also see the Nando's from a distance as you approach, which is a nice touch, and something which should be on every horizon in my opinion!

In Thurrock and the QE2 bridge was closed... so no Bluewater for me - so a little detour up to Romford for a trip to The Brewery retail/leisure park. The Brewery has over a thousand cheap parking spaces, free on Sunday. I was there for 1 hour 15 minutes and paid £1.50. Nando's is upstairs, so head for the Upper Level parking. The Brewery Parking is well signposted from 2 miles out - so easy to find too. DOn't follow Sat Nav to this post code, follow the road signs instead.

Even though the store was very busy all the staff seemed to be happy to help us, the food as ever was amazing and the manager Paul was such a star. Can't wait to return.... Well done nando's Romford....

Enjoyable visiting considering how busy the restaurant was. 2 friends and I arrived at 7 and had to wait 15 minutes (which wasn't so bad considering it was a bank holiday). Staff were fairly friendly, and the restaurant was nice. This Nandos is two floors, which isn't a regular thing, but it worked quite nicely.

Music wasn't too loud or too quiet, contributed to the atmosphere of the night but did let us enjoy conversation.

Staff were not particularly friendly but were polite and gave us everything we needed. We didn't need to park nearby but if we did there is a large carpark immediately outside and a cinema almost next to it. I enjoyed reading the story of the nando's cockerel while waiting to order and thought it was a very unique thing to put on the wall and was interesting.

Staff were very welcoming, even though one or two had slight attitudes. The restaurant layout was a bit strange with an upstairs, a downstairs and a small isolated section. Could also do with more lighting. The food, like all Nando's, was great and reasonable.

Parking was £1 for 2 hours in The Brewery which seems reasonable to me.
The staff were overly friendly and insisted on asking us if we wanted anything else 3 times within the space of 2 minutes. The decor is a treat and the upstairs seating area is simply stunning.
