Exit right at Brixton tube station and head to the O2 academy which this branch is opposite. They have security there which is funny if they're trying to stop people running off with sauce bottles or plates.

Got there at 18.41, no waiting and shown to our seat by the security guy, ordered at .46, food arrived at 19.02 so just about 15 mins. My friend ordered after me but got her food first. I said it was because hers was boring so they did it quicker, she had chicken lemon and herb which I berated her for and chips, not even peri...

Half chicken mango and lime, sweet mash, garlic bread and halloumi, I stuffed myself again. Got my red reward on my second card however so come Christmas, dinner is sorted. My chicken was anorexic, no offence to anyone who suffers from it, but they should have kept it in the garden eating a little bit longer. The mash was bland, and not presented well, it was only saved by the lemon and herb sauce. Happy I could get mash seeing as I didn't on Monday night, funny enough they don't even know about the wedges this far south yet. The halloumi was grilled fine and the garlic bread was a little bit hard.

This branch is okay. Location wise it's in a good spot near the tube and high street but you have to weave through beggars, funny smells and dodgy looking people. Hopefully you'll get to the Nando's in one piece and still holding onto all your belongings... The branch could do with some sprucing up. Where we sat had minimal artwork but the walls were made of bits hanging down, like the gingerbread house from hansel and gretel.
