Been to this branch several times since moving to the area but haven't reviewed it since the refurb. The al-fresco dining area is no more, and has instead been converted into a normal restaurant, with more space either side of the branch as you enter.

This store is equidistant between Finsbury park and Crouch end stations in a average shopping street with a artisan bakery probably the most exciting of its neighbours.
The store has a generous outside eating area on a front veranda shaded by the large balcony above. It was clean and tidy inside.

the food was of good quality and enjoyable.

Moved house to Finsbury Park and this Nando’s is literally at the bottom of my road – at the junction of Stroud Green Road and Tollington Park. Sunday itself was moving day and it felt a no-brainer for us to christen our new local on our first night.

Stroud green Nandos is only a five minute walk from Finsbury Park station, which was ideal for me as I had some time to kill before my train journey home to Sandy so an impromptu Nandos visit was on the cards!

This was a casual lunch for myself and a friend. We are pretty used to the stroud green nandos as this is our local nandos. the food was mediocre and didn't really amaze us as the size of the chicken let it down but the taste and sauce remained the same. the atmosphere of the Stroud green nando's is somewhat lazy and quiet. the staff were busy doing work and didnt look too excited to be working, there was definitely a lack of smiles.

I feel really sorry for arsenal fans who can't have a pre-match Nando's at this branch! Everything was a farce!

Onto my second Nando's and back down the Piccadilly line to Finsbury Park and Stroud Green Nando's! I was on the tube so it's just a few minutes walk from Finsbury Park tube station, but there also seemed to be plenty of on-street parking, priced at £0.20/10mins or £1.20/hr Mon-Sat 08:30-18:30 and free outside these times.

*I only gave ratings above as they are required. I would give this restaurant -10.

This is the first time I've entered a Nando's and was not greeted by a member of staff on arrival.
We stood there next to the counter for about six minutes before my friend eventually went and spoke to one of the staff so that we could sit down.

Last game of the season at the Emirates and my last pre-match Nando's with Mark for 2012/13. Just like most other cases this season, Arsenal and Nando's were victorious so smiles all round!

Very nice evening in an Arsenal area... Sun was out so worth sitting in the patio..
Nothing out of the ordinary I have to say, sorry, worst review I've done on here...

This was one of the spontaneous, I want to go to Nando’s visits, It’s odd that I hadn’t been to this branch sooner since it’s so close to where I live.

As soon as I walked I could smell all the aromas of the Portuguese spices and succulent chicken to top all off the waiters were so friendly and warm their smiles made me feel so comfortable as usual they actually recognised me and my family great :D. To sum it up far I love nandos, I find the food is always great! The chicken is amazing, as is the sauce! The staffs are helpful, and it’s such good value for money, really fantastic.

I popped into Stroud Green Nando's at around 10 on a Saturday night for a quick chocolate cheesecake (best dessert on the menu?) on the way back home from central London. Parking on Tollington Park was free although on match days (Arsenal stadium is relatively nearby) and during the week, parking restrictions apply.

A nice experience. Very rarely busy as I understand so it's quite pleasant there most of the time. Does get a bit cold inside during the colder months though.

Really good feel to the place. Everyone was really enthusiastic about nandos which meant there was a good atmosphere
