Nando's 101 for me, and Gloucester Road was selected as I was already in the area, travelling from Paddington to Victoria.

A short walk from the Underground station, I found this Nando's almost immediately. Barcellos lit up like a beacon on the side of the wall, guiding Nando's fans to the home of Peri-Chicken. I arrived, entered, and was immediately shown to a table. After sitting down, and pondering the menu (what combinations to have! Which reward card to use!) I headed to the till.

Went to place the order, and it was a fairly quick and efficient process. Order done, I returned to the table via the cutlery and sauce section stuck was being re-stocked as I passed. Everything was nice and tidy, but also clean which really helps.

The meal arrived after around 8 minutes, which is quite good! However! The meal arrived before my starter, which was a bit of a bummer, but made for an interesting combination. To start I ordered a red pepper dip (free on a green reward!), and for main I ordered a Churrasco Thigh Burger Mango and Lime, with Peri-Chips and Creamy Mash. The meal was delightful! The thighs were rather large, and cooked well. Smothering of the churrasco sauce, bursts of Mango and Lime, oozing with coleslaw and juices. The chips were light and fluffy, covered in Peri-salt. The creamy mash was good, helped by adding some Lemon and Herb sauce to improve the consistency.

The outlet is quite small. As you enter, the till and grill are in front of you. There are only 14 tables in total, which is staggeringly small. The toilets are in the basement, and were fairly respectable. Plenty of Nando's artwork dotted around the place too.

Overall, a very good meal. Very easy to get too, a very short walk from the Underground station of the same name, and near to the bus stops.
