Comments - Stand out in our monthly competition! What did you eat? Unique aspects? Parking/transport tips?: 

This is my local branch and it was buzzing on this rather pleasant Sunday evening. We were told it would be a 10 minute wait for a table for 6 which was reasonably accurate.
There were no problems with the orders but I would go as far as to say I was still hungry after my half chicken and 2 peri chips which has not happened on any of my other recent visits to Nando's (mainly in central London). The chicken was simply not as wholesome and meaty as in recent visits to other branches. I was not even fully satisfied by a friend's leftovers (not many people can shred a chicken quite like me) which meant I decided to treat myself to a chocolate cheesecake which finally did the job.
One other aspect of Edgware that I don't understand is how the water dispenser is still out or order. I have been coming here regularly for 7 or 8 years and I cannot remember the last time the water dispenser was working. Having to ask to have your tap water filled up can be quite a nuisance at times especially at peak hours.
I would say there is nothing outstanding about this branch but as it is my local (and where I experienced Nando's for the first time), it will always be a special one for me!
