Kingsbury - Blaynos Review
Despite this being one of the closer branches to me, I'd never been here before (probably because Kingsbury is a pretty miserable place to be on the best of days!). This Nando's is on Kingsbury Circle, a mere one minute walk away from Kingsbury Station (Jubilee). I hit this branch on the way back from work because i was heading to the England-Mexico u20 match at The Hive (usual home of Barnet).
Still had an RYN gift card to use so placed my order in the branch itself; arrived about 6ish and it was fairly empty - although there were a notable amount of takeaway orders being collected. Initially rebuffed by a Nandoca on the till, he served me about a minute later. Food came pretty quickly (between Staff/Quickeness, it should be 4.5). Chips were really good with plenty of peri-salt on them... halloumi was pretty poor though, quite small pieces and just not that great. Then to the chicken burger... which was massively overcooked and pretty flavourless. Indeed, I'm not even sure whether there was any peri sauce on it at all; it was a truly terrible - and rather small/thin piece of chicken.
Branch itself looks pretty old and somewhat unloved although it's not laid out too badly and there's a decent sized sauce counter in the middle of the restaurant. Can't say I'd bother visiting this branch unless you were doing something else because of it (i.e. going to the footy) - although, even then, you've got two branches by Wembley Stadium and then one in Edgware for The Hive... and a couple in Harrow too.
