Hello again.
Went to Kingston for my Nando's fix as I couldn't get to the Stroud Green branch the night before. Kingston is so out of the way, obscure unless you know where it is or how to find it. Parking is terrible as well so you're better off going by public transport. There are other restaurants nearby like La Tasca and Jamie Oliver so if asking for directions then ask for other restaurants or the police station or Rose Theatre.

A fabulous Nando's preceded a football match (not Arsenal for once) at the request of SVC and we were joined by Reviewer Dinner regular Adam for a swift lunch before heading off to see AFC Wimbledon v Torquay.

My Mum and her boyfriend were in London, bringing my possessions to my new flat, and of course I got them to take me to Nando's, they were staying in Kingston as they wanted to visit Hampton Court Palace, which is really close and a great day out. As I was with my Mum and her boyfriend, I didn't have to pay! Always a better trip when that happens, and I found out that he gets extra hot, which is pretty cool.

Opposite one of the best pubs The Mill full of the most down to earth people and brilliant prices. It's right next to the river and there a car park a one minute walk away. It's in one of the most historic towns in the UK and the employees are always there to help and listen to what we say. The back doors were wide open letting a beautiful breeze into the restaurant so we weren't too hot and could enjoy our fantastic food, where the chips were cooked to perfection by the way!

Stopped into this Nando's on my way back home for a late lunch and was pleasantly surprised to find an old tudor house that had been converted. What would have been the old back yard was now housed under a large glass skylight, meaning you can see the original exterior of the outside of the house (now inside) and think of days gone by!

Another day, another Nando's luncheon. This time, the missus and I were in Kingston doing some errands and decided to drop into the Nando's in Kingston. It's just off the High Street, so it's quite quiet but as a penalty there is some walking involved. Then again, this is Nando's we're talking about so I think we'd make the ambulation to our favourite place!

This quaint tudor half timber Nando's sits on the main road in Kingston upon Thames just back from the the river and close to the university sports buildings which I was visiting. The exterior is so welcoming with the black and white leaning walls and the leaded glass, shame it was let down by the large orange waste bins down the side.

Food came after 10 minutes, was very yummy! We were seated immediately! Layout was slightly different to most nandos but was nice, had an upstairs area too. Recommended.
