Came into this store prior to the RYN event at a nearby store. This premises is in a rather upmarket area of London, normally I could never imagine living in London but I could see myself staying round here with its Waitrose, speciality butchers, hauteur cuisine freezer stores and trappings of the dolce vita. In fact the main language I heard walking down the road was French.

I was heading to the big NFL game at Wembley stadium and in need of a pre-match meal away from the crowds at Wembley. The quickest way to Wembley stadium from where I live in Bedford is to get the Bedford to West Hampstead train and then the tube from West Hampstead to Wembley Park.

My worst ever Nando's experience.

This was my first visit to this branch (my favourite one) for around three weeks, and I was surprised to find no members of staff that I recognised.

I walked in carrying my two year old daughter, and after waiting to be seated for four minutes I gave up and picked up a high-chair myself and took it to an empty table (this wasn't hard to find as only three other tables were in use).

Good bantz.
Tip: don't be late or you'll miss the raffle.
As for the quiz it was a fail that there was no Olivier in there and the questions were too hard but it's ok because I'm going to make the RYN host breakfast now.

RYN17 marked exactly a year since I first crumbled to Marc's powers and I've not missed a dinner since. West Hampstead is an easy branch to find; walking distance from the trifecta of stations (Tube/Thameslink/Overground) as well as both Finchley Road and Finchley Road & Frognal stations. It's a pretty small branch - the smallest I've been to host a RYN dinner but we were given the well decorated back section, just up a mini flight of stairs.

Having never been to the West Hampstead nando's before I was originally quite annoyed at how long the walk was from the underground station but i quickly got over this when i got there! We had to wait quite a while to start the quiz and then subsequently order but when we did i ordered half a chicken, chips, spicy rice and halloumi, i think i overestimated my hunger as I struggled to devour the nandos delights.

First visit to West Hampstead and a RYN event. Thoroughly enjoyable evening and the Nandos was on par with most of their other restaurants that I've vistited before. Food was delivered fairly quickly considering there was a large group of us. The restaurant itself could probably do with a little more lighting as it felt quite dark at times, but aside from that it ticked all the boxes!

Having seen many the decor in many other Nando's, I found the artwork very unlike a lot of other restaurants in the UK and Namibia. Nando's is known for its rustic African themed restaurants, this one wasn't the same.

The food and service were good. I had a lovely evening with the raffle and quiz.

Time for #RYNSaucy17, and West Hampstead was to be the location.

The outlet is a short walk from West Hampstead Thameslink station (how I arrived), Overground, and Jubilee line stations. Buses also regularly pass by the front, however car parking appeared to be somewhat non-existent. After the short walk, I arrived at West Hampstead Nando's.

Never before have I seen a large walking Nando chicken. It was almost hard to eat my dinner afterwards but somehow I managed it as it was soo delicious. The walking chicken was not seen again after we finished - worrying!

Not the biggest Nando's but coped well with a high volume of orders... I've no doubt mine would have come sooner had I not ordered the livers. They've still not quite cracked cooking livers in anything under than 15 mins.

I had a truly fantastic time at the Reviewer Dinner #RYNsaucy17 at West Hampstead Nando's. Not only was it extremely close to my house making it excitingly accessible and promising for an early start, but the company was outstanding, the quiz left me utterly quizzical and quashed my fears of a funless evening. I had a lovely double chicken wrap with cheese and extra halloumi, which was tender and delightful, but could have used a little more sauce.

Another day, another Nando's, another RYN Reviewer dinner up in North Weezy London.
Busted my ass to get there on time and was thankfully not the last one to arrive and I sure pigged out there.

Ah i love the smell of free Nando's of an afternoon. A bon voyage party for my friend going off to uni brought me as an extended family member to the west hampstead branch. I used to frequent this one when i worked doze the road but haven't been here for a year. Got there late but the food had already been ordered so no waiting time and a table already prepared.

Great food. Chicken was well cooked with generous amount of sauce.

Food took a long time to come and we had to chase.

Restaurant was dirty inside and staff did not make much effort to clean up quickly.

Positive was outside terrace area and opportunity to eat in the sun. Table was wonky though.

Overall, site in need of a bit of a revamp

So it was the Friday before a 100km run, so what better way to prepare than the first of three Nando's? I was full of energy so it must have worked...

they were busy and restaurant quite full of customers, but food was a long time to arrive, and when it did not all the meals arrived at the same time,
will still visit there as on average quite good service and tasty food. Vanilla frozen yogurt really good

It was a very satisfyingly large portion of chips, the rice was nice and soft ~(not hard like some places) and the 1/4 chicken was a breast piece which i had requested. (Sometimes I don't always get a breast piece) The service was friendly and quick.

This is my local Nando's and having recently had a take-away from them that I greatly enjoyed at my own house on the sofa, I decided to pop in for another Nando's (the 2nd of the week) to fill up my quote. They did not disappoint, they provided an exceedingly spicy wrap which was almost perfect despite one of the pieces of chicken being slightly dry. I even enjoyed their frozen yoghurt, which I do not usually partake in but my food was so spicy that I had to.

good atmosphere, and good London location. Nando's staff service quite good, only one small thing, one side order was served to a different person at our table, generally otherwise a tasty and enjoyable meal

On returning from a phone call to meet Marc Joss within the premises, I found him engaging in a discordant word with the manager who was being exceedingly punctilious and pugnacious and pedantic with regard to the utilisation of Nando's cards and how Mr Joss might use them in this context. After a flirtatious word, we were able to rectify the situation but both returned to our table feeling as if we 'd had to fight for the food we deserved.

Haven't been to this branch in a while and the staff have changed but the service was still as good.
The only problem was that the cashier nearly charged me £10,800 on my bank card.
The food came quickly, was not burned and was very filling. I'm very happy that I now have my new loyalty card!!!
Had a lovely seat in the window watching the world go by. Myself and my companion could speak freely with no one to over hear us, or be squished up against.

I know I keep saying it but although this Nando's is always busy, there is never a queue to get a table and the food always comes quickly. And the attitude of the staff is great. Halfway through the meal, our waitress appeared with an extra portion of chips: she explained that when bringing our meal to the table she'd dropped a couple of chips on the floor!

Love this branch. Never wait for a table, always big portions, always fast service. The waitress totally forgot to bring our coffee/yoghurt. She realised her mistake before we had a chance to point it out and immediately told us it would be on the house!

This is a good branch to visit for an early-ish (6pm) dinner with no queues. They had left "Spill the Beans" cards on every table, to let Nando's know your feedback. My feedback: "If Nando's Head Office would like to know what I thought of this meal, visit www.rateyournandos.com" !

It had been quite a while since my last visit to West Hampstead Nando's and overall this was a good one. The best thing about this visit was that it was peak time on a Saturday night and the three of us (Olive, José and myself) were seated straight away.

Parking is notoriously difficult in West Hampstead. We drove around for a good 10 minutes before luckily finding a space which was a 5 minute walk away from the branch and that was at 945pm on a Thursday!

Parking can be very hard to find in West Hampstead. I remember driving around for quite a while trying to find a parking space but eventually got lucky.

The company made the night, of course besides the tender juicy chicken which adorned my peer's dish. The parking of course is an issue, yet in the evening, the best time for a nandos fill, is not too difficult to find; a short walk to wear off the side of corn on the cob is that is needed. Many amenities surround this secluded nandos, tucked deep in the midst of west hampstead.
