Very easy to get to I do love travelling by DLR to Nando's. Only just remembered that I made us get off the train at the wrong stop but once I asked a stranger for directions we were on our way again at Heron Quay.

Never been to Woolwich before that I remember but i would definitely go again. There's a huge t.v in the middle of the town square, a market, even spotted a Wimpy that's still in business.

After spending about 2 hours on various tube trains, we arrived at this Nando's, it’s in the pedestrianized part of Woolwich & very close to one of the station exits.
On arrival, the front of house person was quite sullen and subdued, maybe he’d had a bad day?
We were shown to a vacant table very quickly as it was extremely quiet for a Friday night.

This was an interesting Nandventure which involved a lovely ferry trip and finally visiting the area where my beloved Arsenal started out!

This Nando's was opened in 2010 and should really be a 4 for décor, but there were a few negatives that balanced it out to a 3. On arriving, it took a while before we were noticed and the restaurant wasn't even completely full. There were also some cleaning materials draped over an urn by the entrance, rather strange!

This was the first time I can remember that I wasn't asked if I had been to Nando's before! Shocking! Unfortunately this extreme blip puts staff down to a 2, though I must say the staff on the whole were nice and friendly.

Myself and my boyfriend ordered half a chicken with hot sauce, quarter chicken with medium sauce both with sides. Other tables that had arrived after us(around 5 other tables) were served before us. We ended up waiting over 50 minutes! Not impressed and above all waiter was rude and unhelpful.

So onto the second Nando's of the evening and this took me on the short drive from Lewisham over to Woolwich! This time I parked at Calderwood Street multi-storey, which is above a Sainsbury's and just a few minutes walk from Nando's. It's 80p/hr and charges from 8am-6:30pm Mon-Sat, so is free outside these times. Beware the car park has opening times of 7:30am-10pm Mon-Fri, 7:30am-8pm Sat and 7:30am-5pm Sun.

It was my leaving lunch before I went off to the desert for 6 months so I got to choose where my fellow office workers joined me for lunch. We always enjoy going Nandos on special occasions like birthdays or last days so needles to say Nandos was an easy and popular choice.

I was with my family there for Sunday lunch. The staff serving us with the chicken has got lots of salt in it. I was asked for the manager and she not even care to come for about 5 minutes later . When she at the table i was saying thats a lots of salt in my chicken and she turn round and try to explain and saying that's she can change the chicken but not admit it there is salt in it. I asked her to taste the chicken but she refuse and try to say that's i try to put salt on it and complain.
