Killing time before the train back to the North, it was decided to visit Nandos, and one that has been visited before, Glasshouse Street, was the selected venue.

The outlet is like many London Nando's, being predominantly at basement level. There are a few tables on the main street level, which is where I was sat, but most of the outlet is in the basement. As you enter, there is a long bar style bench against the right hand window, and a couple of tables in the rear left. The stairs heading down are also central-right of the outlet, in a spiral style. The basement level is reasonably sized, with a large number of tables. The till and grill are also located on this level along with the cutlery and sauce point. There is quite a large amount of African artwork, which is wonderful to view, and really adds to the Nando's vibe.

Having been immediately shown to a table, I pondered the menu slightly, and then headed downstairs to place my order. I was served almost immediately, and redeemed a red reward for my entire meal. The Nandoca managed the order with great ease, and it wasn't long before I was heading back to my table with cutlery and sauces.

The meal arrived fairly quickly, and looked reasonably appealing. Redeeming a red reward, I had a chicken burger Mango and Lime, with chips and salad. The bun was crisp, but the lettuce had seen better days, with the tomato a bit squishy. The chicken was well cooked, and had an ample amount of Peri-sauce smothered on it. The chips were fresh and warm, with the salad quite crisp and fresh. Quite a nice meal.

This outlet is located just off Regent Street, behind the MANGO (how ironic) clothes chain, and next to Leicester Arms pub. It is a short walk from Piccadilly Circus, and Oxford Circus underground stations, and being in Central London, very accessible by bus. I walked here from Covent Garden, and it didn't take too long.

A nice little outlet that is quite well tucked away. Perfect if you are after a quick chicken fix in some wonderful surroundings.
