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

Was working in High Barnet for a couple weeks back in 2007 and almost lived on Nando's in the evening! It was before there was any Extra Extra Hot sauce too - looking back, oh how the times have changed :-)

I was staying in the Comfort Hotel on the same complex as this Nando's, so within a minute I was munching chicken... There's also a Hollywood Bowl and a Vue cinema on the same complex - so plenty of activity to do in the evenings with loads of free spaces.

Each time I went I was generally in a group of four or more and we were always seated within 10 minutes. It may have changed in the last few years, but there are some raised booths towards the back left of the restaurant. Each of the booths had some nice artwork in them too - and could probably seat up to six people.

The other walls were nice and clean with white paint though not too much artwork on them.

Each time I went, the chicken was always delivered in under 15 minutes to the whole group and there were no complaints... other than from a Nando's virgin who ordered the chicken plain and said it was still too spicy! Bleh!

Would happily revisit again in the near future!
