I love this restaurant even though it's in a busy shopping centre. The staff still make time for you and I had my 2 year old with me, the spacing was very easy for me to get around with her. We had the spicy rice, corn on the cob, veggie wrap and creamy mash, all came super quick and it was delicious as always.

Very easy to find inside Westfield shopping centre. We arrived via the Central Line but plenty of other transport networks also stop here. it's upstairs near Strada/Pizza Express/all the usual suspects. had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. this is a massive branch and consequently very noisy. the tables are also quite close together. As it was so busy, the ordering process also took a while & then the computerised till system crashed.

Ten minute wait to get a table then ten minutes waiting to order. The queue wasn't that long however the tills decided to crash whilst I was placing my order. The poor trainee had about three people come over to help him but we still had to change till. He couldn't remember what I ordered so as he scrolled through all the recent orders I had to point mine out.

It's been a while since I've been to a new branch, hence the lack of reviews, and this visit to Westfield was no exception. However, I figured it's worth reviewing this visit because it came on an event day at the Olympic Park (Diamond League athletics in the Stadium), so may be of use to anyone attending stuff there in the future.

Davide and Dadinha did everything they could for us to ensure we had a great dinner - they really went above and beyond the Nando's call of duty!

We hadn't eaten all day so of course Nandos double chicken burger went down a right treat (With some hallomi on the side). Best meal ever!

Well I got a takeaway and my two year old son was having a tantrum as kids do! Got served by the very inpatient and rude devone who was sniggering to her work colleagues as my kid was having a tantrum but apart from her the food was very nice.

This Nandos is big in a big shopping centre and quite popular it seems because the queues were quite long that day-30 May, half term Friday. After all the queing to get a table and then for placing the order I was told the card payment system was not working but that luckily there was an atm right next to the restaurant, unfortunately more queing!

Thank you.

Second time I'd been to this Nando's (went once during the Olympics) and the decor still looks really good. Was running late to meet some mates for dinner so they ordered for me, food literally got there about a minute after I arrived - and so can only give it a 5 for speed! Staff were very accommodating too; one of my mates didn't get his spicy rice, so they compensated him with a free corn of the cob.

This Nando's is in the huge Westfield shopping Centre in Stratford (City) right by the Olympic Village. There are hundreds of different shops and eateries within the centre and nearby, with a Vue Cinema, All Star Lanes bowling alley and an Asper Casino all within The Westfield.

One of my favorite outlets in the UK and the branch where my son (15 months) had his first foray into the delicacy that is Nandos, this gargantuan restaurant always manages to impress me in terms of quality of food, speed of service and general cleanliness. I would recommend sitting at the back where you can enjoy a wonderful view of all that Westfield has to offer.

I visited this large Nandos in between the Olympic and Paralympic games which took place right next to the Westfield centre a massive shopping centre which seemed to have every shop in it plus a cinema. Whilst the visit was to look over the Olympic site I was impressed with the centre and the Store is right in the middle of it.

Quick after work visit as we couldn't be bothered to cook. The restaurant itself was very busy and I think we were fortunate to get a table straight away because 10 minutes later the queue was starting to build up at the door.

Despite receiving a table of free desserts, this is by far the worst visit to Nandos anyone will ever experience.

Stratford Westfield, a new shopping centre; Europe's largest. One of the best things to happen to East London in god-knows how many years. As expected, there was a significant queue for the restaurant, but my friends and I were willing to wait.

On arrival at the biggest Nando's in the world on its third day, I was not surprised to see a rather large queue at 7pm on a Thursday evening. Evidently, this branch isn't big enough and I must say it was the longest queue I have ever been a part of in Nando's.

What with this being the worlds biggest Nando's I immediately had very high expectations. Couple this with the fact that this restaurant had opened only the day before; I expected a lot. I'm glad to say that I wasn't disappointed.
