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

Came to this Nando's on Saturday evening just before 6pm - and it was very quiet, only a couple of tables in use. Being in London for the weekend, I was on the tube so didn't pay any attention to the parking - but probably N/A.

First impressions were quite good. Some nice outside seating - consisting of about 20 or so tables with metal chairs and wooden bench. There's a large curved booth either side of the entrance door. A concrete-looking ceiling with what seems to be curtain rails embedded in it. From these railes there are lights hanging down that look like little pods with patterned holes in the side. A lot of the walls (and the checkout counter) are like a metal cladding, which appear to be flattened out oil drums. A few of them has the Shell markings on them...

There is a lot of seating. A good mixture of tables/chairs/booths throughout this restaurant. The back right wall (from the entrance) has several small canvas paintings on it and the far left hand wall also has a few larger canvas paintings too.

Being so quiet, there was no queue to order and the food came in just over 6 minutes. It was a decent meal too. The chicken was very average size chicken and cooked sufficiently (it was a bit dry). The chips were hot and crispy and the rice was hot and moist.

The staff did the minimum as well.
