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

Almost a year has passed since this branch opened and I will only be visiting again out of convenience. Given the Nando's options in this particular part of central London are so wide, make sure you choose carefully! This branch doesn't offer much in terms of décor with a bland front and strange piping dominating the ceiling.
The staff did as expected, nothing to write home about.

The disappointing aspect of this visit was the lack of peri salt on the chips, a problem also present on other tables where one Nandoca in particular had already been seen adding more on. My quarter chicken was sufficiently meaty (this was my second dinner), don't forget to specify breast over leg if in doubt.

All in all, I'll be making the journey to Goodge Street, The Brunswick or Euston over this branch if I can! Nothing in particular against this one but the strange décor and average nature of this ex-peri-peri-ence have turned me slightly!
