When we arrived we were told they had tables, however we still had to wait a few minutes to be seated without any clear reason why (there was only 2 of us and we could see free clean tables). Once seated food came fairly speedily. When people around us left the tables and floor were left uncleared for ages which made the place feel dirty. But food was above average which kinda made up for the poor service.

Can only assume this branch has been refurbished within the last couple of years as it's definitely not in keeping with the 'older' side of Stratford. Ironically, depending on which exit you come out of at Stratford station, this branch is probably nearer/equidistant than the Westfield branch; just go through the Stratford Centre and turn left and it's a couple of minutes down. It's underneath a Novotel.

Waiting time for food would only have been ten minutes if they had brought the correct meal over. And the chips were under done...

Stratford... lovely, lovely Stratford. I thought Feltham was lovely, but Stratford is even lovelier... I think I will stick to the Baird's hometown of Stratford-upon-Avon though...

An Arsenal victory at West Ham was followed by a visit to an East End Nando's which I had previously never frequented along with SVC. I arrived first and was told there would be a 10 minute wait so I left and returned at the agreed time to find my table ready, waiting for me. This Nando's has been refurbished in the last few years which shows in the reviews!

This was a pretty standard midweek visit; nothing exceptional but nothing particularly bad either. The chicken was tasty and they were slightly more generous with the chips than usual, even though it was fairly busy.

Bottomless drinks machine was out of order so asked for lemonade, 10 minutes later was told there was none of that either. Food was luke warm, not piping hot like my regular branch at kings cross. then ordered dessert, was waiting in the queue and a member of staff kindly opened up a new till (which was nice) but had to wait 15 minutes just for an ice cream and a choc cheesecake- its not like the store was busy or there werent enough staff.

The restaurant is good, clean, great atmosphere, good layout, airy yet warm, but service is slow on every visit.

Needs a major overhaul, staff are not the best and the floors and tables seemed dirty and greasy.
Not up to the high standard I like in the Liverpool Street branch. Cmon Nandos, sort it out!
