"Once more unto the grill" were the words that my colleague and I joyfully cheered as we headed through the Old market of Spitalfields for the tongue tingly peri peri glory that all five senses so desperately craved and desired. The buzz was ecstatic and there was no way that either of us could have expected the events that occurred.

Ordered the Butterfly Chicken Hot, Spice Rice, Corn on the Cob and side of Halloumi Cheese....was hot, fresh, delicious!

Lighting was unusual (chilli lights!!) and stood out. Busy street with lots of people around Spitalfields.

This is within easy walking distance from Liverpool Street Station.
I must say it's the nicest branch I've visited.
The two staff members who greeted us made us feel so welcome.
They have a massive heart in lights to the right of the door. it's stunning. i want one!
They also have lovely lampshades, sorry to be 'girlie'.
Nothing was too much trouble, they pushed two tables together to accommodate our food.
The food was delicious, everything was fab.

Been reluctant to log a review as I was on 200 reviews and the next two would spoil it. It's a silly reason especially holding back such a score from the branch but I'm young and foolish.

This branch was amazing. The staff, the food, the decorations. I wish I could give them a full house but the food was a ten minute wait which is the only thing to bring them down.

Met up with a mate for lunch. We were heading up from Aldgate East, from where it's about a 5-7 minute walk straight down Commercial Road (I did check, and you could also get the 67 bus). The Middlesex Street branch is probably the same distance away but it's a comparative maze to reach. This Nando's isn't in the Spitalfields complex itself but just by it, and next to Tesco. Shoreditch High Street is the nearest station

The store looked good, with interesting features and nice layout though lacking in atmosphere. The staff weren't welcoming and came across as little arrogant. food wasn't the best or that quick with chips being over cooked dry and cool. Not a sunshine visit.

Visited this Nando's at about 7:30pm and was surprised at how quiet it was. This Nando's isn't located within the Market complex itself but just on the outside.

Shoreditch Overground and Rail Station are the nearest being a few minutes walk away. I came into Fenchurch Street which is still less than a mile walk away.

Fairly large nandos and not very busy. Although quite surprised the food took a while; we were getting hungry. Parking is a nightmare but it is what you would expect in the area. Public transport is best. Great place for lunch when you are wondering around Brick Lane. I would go again.

Very friendly staff there. Had a chat with a few of them. Sat in there for over 2 hours and no one even hinted at us to leave even though there was a constant flow of customers. Very nice.

Spitalfields Nando's is not located in the complex itself where you will find various food chains such as Las Iguanas, Wagamamas and La Tasca. Why not coincide lunch with a mooch about Spitalfields Market which can cater for all tastes in terms of clothing and jewellery.
The front part of the branch was reasonably busy on this Tuesday lunch time although the back (with lots of high tables for two with stools) was almost empty.

Love this Nandos, clean, fresh, well organised, well decorated. Service is friendly and professional with big smiles and always quick.
Food is fresh and piping hot and staff very solicitous, all in all like it the most of my nearby Nandos. Could teach the Stratford branch a lot about customer service, cleanliness and generally being a good branch.
