Borehamwood - Ryan Review
100 years of film at Elstree at Borehamwood! That's what greets visitors to Borehamwood - with some nice little flags on all the lampposts in the high street... Sadly I was just too early and the exhibition at the Museum doesn't open until next week... so I guess just Nando's would have to do... Anyway!
This Nando's is located just over the road from where this exhibition will be held and also just up/over the road from The Point complex which houses a Virgin Active and The Reel cinema.
I parked in the big Tesco Extra which gives three hours free parking and is just a short 5 minute walk down the high street. Elstree Studios is right by the entrance to the Tesco car park too. Elstree and Borehamwood Train Station is also a 5 minute walk away from Nando's.
Stopped into this Nando's at about 12:30pm and it was a pretty warm afternoon so it was good to see this Nando's had the front windows opened up giving a nice breeze into the restaurant... sadly the breeze had a real "eau de household waste" about it - but sitting nearer the back meant it wasn't as pongy. There were six or tables outside too - so you could always take in the aromas more if you wanted too.
It's a pretty small sized Nando's with only some 30 tables (including those outside). There are booths to the right of the entrance and one circular booths towards the back otherwise all seats are tables and chairs/bench. The decor is very standard - clean, but not much to shout home about - some nice wavy wooden ceilings but that's all.
The food came in a very quick three minutes. A chicken fillet burger and chips and it came as expected. The chicken fillet was juicy with enough sauce on it and didn't quite fill the whole burger. The chips were hot and crispy and a normal sized portion.
Staff did everything expected so was a reasonable visit!
