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

As rail station Nando's go, this one is very convenient for my station King's Cross to head back North, so a trip was made!

Entered the outlet, and was greeted and shown to a table. After a quick menu ponder, I pottered over and ordered. The whole process wasn't very enthusing, just seemed to happen and quite mediocre. After ordering, I returned to my table, picking out some not grubby cutlery.

The outlet is split in to four sections. The first, as you enter, is on the left hand side in an L shape, consisting of standard tables against the window, and booth seating opposite and on the rear left wall (the L) which is where I was seated. The second section is as you enter, immediately in front. This is a large open area, with the till and cutlery/sauce point on the right, and the grill on the rear left. The space in between is used for queueing at the till. The waiting area is to the left. The third area is at the rear of the outlet, and is a little tucked away. This has many standard tables, nothing exciting in this part. The fourth area is downstairs, can accommodate 10 or so tables, and is quite cosy. There is also a cutlery and sauce point here, along with the toilets.

Meal arrived after 20 minutes wait, and was reasonable. I ordered chicken burger mango and lime with Salad and Sweet Potato wedges. The burger was OK, bun and breast little dry and lacking spice. The lettuce and tomato inside had seen better days. The salad was crisp and cool, whilst the sweet potato wedges were lovely - well worth getting if you fancy something a little different. An OK meal, the sides propped it up as the burger wasn't all that great.

King's Cross Nando's is located on York Way, adjacent to the east side of King's Cross station. There are many other eateries in the area including McDonalds, and a pub, plus a Premier Inn if your Nando's is just too much to handle. You can reach this outlet by Underground and National Rail services to King's Cross and St Pancras stations, both are a short walk from Nando's. There are also very frequent bus services from across London serving King's Cross and St Pancras, many stopping adjacent the outlet.

Overall a good outlet if you are after a Nando's fix before a long rail journey, but otherwise it's a little 'out the way' and not all that wonderful. Brunswick which is nearby is a better outlet if you are after a more tranquil Nando's.
