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

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.

It was quite busy, a table for 12 on the right hand side as we entered and we opted for a table against the wall behind the Christmas tree. The tabletop was actually connected to the wall so you can't move it to get more comfortable, but at least it won't wobble.

Changed the usual garlic bread to creamy mash to accompany the peri chips and 1/4 chicken which arrived in about fifteen minutes. I had a trainee take my order who was convinced I had a reward on my card though I did not. I was embarrassed for her when she asked a colleague to help her but she was really sweet getting my gelado and very helpful I wish her luck.

The food was nice, more peri salt on the chips though they were a bit warm same like the mash, but the chicken was hot and cooked better than the Epsom leg.

The toilets let this branch down, they were terrible, dirty and disgusting, I won't go into further details but I had to use the disabled one after sprucing it up a bit. Luckily the toilets are away from the main restaurant and the till and grill area. There is more spacious seating in this branch though the waiting area is in an odd place. There is also a wall blocking the grill area from view and creating a second pathway from the till to the toilets which might cause confusion. It was okay
