Approaching the outlet, it is located on a corner opposite Hammersmith station, with tables outside and on this occasion, a sun blind too. I entered, which is through a curved glass corridor, to be greeted immediately by the Nandoca who showed me to my table. After a quick menu-ponder, I proceeded to order. This was fairly quick, and within a few minutes I was returning to the table.

The outlet is in three sections. The first, and largest, is the front of the outlet, and where I was sat. This is a large room, which as you enter has a large circulating area for waiting diners, and to queue for the tills. The till and grill are on the right hand wall, with seating in the remainder of the outlet. These are mainly normal tables and chairs, with some bench seats at the rear. In the middle there is a large Abacus, which is quite fun. The cutlery and sauce area is also here. The second section is at the rear, and is more private. It contains a small number of tables, mainly set in booth style. The third section is downstairs, and contains the toilets. Decoration here is wonderful, they have really kept the traditional features of this building, with a Nando's twist.

The meal arrived after just short of 10 minutes, and looked rather appealing. I ordered 5 chicken wings, one of each spice, with spicy rice and a side salad. The wings were piping hot and dripping in sauce. Unlike previous times I have had this meal, it was evident which wing was which, as a generous amount of sauce had been applied, with the wing not being burnt. All five fell off the bones, and were a delight to eat. The spicy rice was nice and warm, with a slight spice kick to it, and the salad refreshingly cool. All washed down with a glass of finest tap water. It had most certainly been taken care of!

Meal complete, toilets checked, it was time to leave, with a friendly thanks from the Nandoca.

The outlet is located on Hammersmith Road in Hammersmith, and is a short walk away from the District and Piccadilly line station. There are multiple buses serving the area too, which includes the N9 so you can service all your night bus needs.

Overall a wonderful little outlet, and would strongly recommend it for anyone wishing to have a pleasant meal in a great setting.
