The service and the nandos experience is slowly diminishing here. The previous visits have resulted in our apperteasers (starters) arriving together with the main course or even on one occasion, arriving after we were almost finished our main course and we asked for the starter as they had forgotten to add it to the order! Last night, I was told sorry, we haven't got any wings for the wing roulette ready for the next 10 mins!!! Wow, is this really a chicken joint?? No chicken available????

This outlet is located in Beckenham High Street, a reasonable distance from the tram stop and railway station. There is a Pizza Express and Sainsburys next door.

We ordered half chicken with chips and garlic bread, and Gelado. The chips were quite well done, and covered in Peri-Salt. The Gelado was good, although these are shipped in so no real control over them by the outlet.

Convincing Elliott to do a second Nando's of the day and making him plan the route was no easy task especially with the restrictions I gave him. Two trams later with a monsoon rainstorm and we were in beckenham. A ten minute walk from the tram stop to the high street via googlemap and we were at the branch.

A misty Monday seemed a good time to visit my 195th different Nando's, especially when I discovered that the train journey to Beckenham was surprisingly quick and easy from Mill Hill Broadway with only a single change required at Herne Hill.

This Nando's is on the High Street and just a moment's walk from an Odeon Cinema. Parking is cheap and very close too. Village Way car park is just behind the High Street and is the biggest (it's a multi-storey) and priced at 50p per hour up to a max of £4.00 (all day), charged between 7:30am-7:30pm. A Sainsbury's is beneath the car park and shoppers can reclaim the parking (not sure of the exact spend or how much can be claimed back).

Very unimpressed. We were told that service would be 20 minutes. In fact, it was half an hour. Given that we were in a bit of a hurry, this was particularly annoying. Honesty really pays off in those situations; although we may well have chosen a rival to get a quicker meal, we would have gone back. I have to say that today's visit has put us off Beckenham branch for good.

The food was fine, but the length it took to get there was unbelievable.
