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

Like many of the central London branches the Great Portland Street is a smoothly run slick operation. A wait for a table was avoided by arriving before 1pm which is a tip that can save you a lot of time if planning to lunch at this restaurant on a Friday.

This particular branch of Nando's would be particularly pleasing for anyone with claustrophobia due to the large open spaces, which I hope store management don't get tempted to clutter up.

No trip to the Great Portland Street restaurant would be complete without visting the toilets in the basement which are done in a style of british beach huts (and if like the couple next to us, you are on a first and possibly blind date, you could probably flesh out a convosation about them till the food arrives....).
