This branch is part of the Abbey wood retail complex and shares a car park with Mc Donalds and a large Asda. The car park was geared up for the Asda and therefore you have to cross over a busy entrance road to get to the Nandos. Once over the road the store it at the edge of its own piazza with a interesting marque like structure over benching. On the piazza Nandos has a range of yellow chairs and tables and wooden tables and chairs under black covers and small potted trees in yellow tubs.

Inside the store is slightly industrialised. It has a glass entrance way which is useful to keep the cold and wind out. the store is very open plan with a green mesh wall in the middle and a wood and lighting wall at far end. Large wicker lampshades hang down from the high ceiling. There isn't a great deal of artwork but all that there is, is of a high standard and would find a place on my wall.

The sauces are arranged on a shelf on the wall. Fine for me but it would be a little high for some people like my mum to reach their favourite sauce. Perhaps mix it up with some on a lower shelf as well. You could get someone to reach it down for you though so an opportunity to make new friends.

Toilets were very bright and clean and the orange pattern reminded me of a giraffe, but that might just be due to poor Marius being a victim of the Danes recently. Very bright and attractive though.

The staff were exceptionally friendly and came and chatted with me, I even got a chicken cheque for a free meal from them for explaining the meaning of my polo shirt. They were very attentive around the store and were cleaning up the tables as cleaning to a system. They all seemed to be enjoying their work which then transferred onto the customers enjoying their meal. Definitely a store to come back to especially in summer when the outside seats will be more inviting.
