A quick cheeky Nando's for a Thursday evening, and Stamford Street was selected due to its ease of access from work. It is very close to Waterloo, Blackfriars, and Southwark stations. The RV1 bus runs past, and there is on-street parking.

Entered the outlet, and was seated straight away. A table in the far left hand corner of the outlet, by the window. After looking at the menu I went to order. This was a pretty quick and slick process, which is always good.

After ordering, I popped via the cutlery and sauce section (which was well stocked) before returning to the table.

The meal arrived very quickly, and didn't appear rushed either. I ordered a churrasco thigh burger mango and lime, with Peri-Chips and Creamy mash. The burger was tasty, full of finoslaw and sauce. The chips were ablittle cold but had a generous dousing of Peri-salt. I have never had the mash before, and it was quite enjoyable. Certainly adding some sauce to the mash really gives it a greater kick. Lovely creamy mash with a hint of butter in there.

The outlet is quite small, long but thin. The entrance is in the centre, with till and grill directly infront. To the right is mainly group seating, and to the left is mainly single seating. The layout and decoration of the outlet beared a lot of resemblence to the Silverlink (Newcastle) outlet even down to the oil drum lids on the walls. Lots of nice aboriginal paintings around the place too. There is a space for outside seating, however at this time of year, it wasn't set up. The toilets were fairly small but clean and tidy.

Overall, a nice if not small restaurant, which is very much off the beaten track despite being in central London.
