Epsom - Elliott Review
A short walk from Epsom station and you reach this Nando's. Arriving, it is on the ground floor of a three storey building. I entered, and was greeted after a short pause and advised of a 10 minute wait for a table. Not a problem, as it was very busy (Sunday winner winner chicken dinners!). Eventually I was shown to Table 18 and 19, which is two tables pushed together in a corner. I would hate to sit here with another party on the other table as there is just no room.
Ordering process was fairly swift. There were three tills open, with the orders being pushed through very quickly. The Nandoca who served me was good, and navigated the order quickly.
I returned to the table via the cutlery and sauce section which was well stocked. The cutlery is in dishes more akin to school meal serving trays, rather than the typical bowls you find in other outlets.
The meal arrived after 12 minutes, and looked incredibly appetising. I ordered half chicken Mango and Lime with Peri-Chips and Garlic Bread. The chicken was huge, with the leg incredibly juicy and very enjoyable. The breast, whilst enjoyable, was a little dry in parts and some sauce needed to be added to make it more moist. The chips were good, again a large portion that was smothered in peri-salt. The garlic bread was tasty and warm which was nice.
This outlet is recently refurbished, and the new decor and layout work really well. As you enter, you are in the right hand corner with a small waiting area. Along the right hand wall is the till and grill. In the middle of the outlet are a selection of 4 seat booths which are American in style. Left hand wall has sofa and table seating. The outlet can't actually seat that many people, as it's quite small. There is lots of artwork around the outlet and some wonderful lighting pieces. The toilets are in the far left corner, and are a little small but were nice and clean on this visit.
This outlet is located near Epsom High Street, next to the railway station. Easily accessible by local bus and rail services from Waterloo, Victoria, Clapham, Sutton, and Dorking.
Overall, a lovely little outlet with a very enjoyable meal. Would certainly recommend this Nando's if you're in the area.
