Entered the outlet, and was shown to a table. After a short ponder of the menu, I went to order.

The order process itself was reasonable, the order was taken with ease, however it was payment which proved to be difficult. I had a gift card, which wouldn't work. A bit of investigation by the Nandoca revealed it hadn't been loaded. After a few questions about how and where I got it, the Nandoca despatched me with some instructions and a bit of paper containing the card details. Very helpful. I popped via the cutlery and sauce bit, before returning to the table.

The outlet is located on two levels. The ground floor contains a large number of reasonably spaced tables around the sides, and one long table in the middle. The till and grill are against the left hand wall. The cutlery and sauce point is next to the till and grill. Unfortunately on this occasion the water was hot, and the ice not working. There is also a very small outdoor area at the rear, however it didn't look all that appealing. The downstairs is a large room, with impressive decoration. There are bench seats around the sides, with normal tables in the middle. The toilets are also located on this floor.

The decoration here is fantastic. The right hand wall on the ground level is full of peach and apricot stones in the wall, glazed over, giving such a fantastic effect. There were a large number of art pieces around the outlet, and some impressive lighting.

The meal arrived after 15 minutes, which considering the outlet was empty, isn't all that great. I ordered chicken wrap mango and lime with chips and coleslaw. The meal looked appealing, and indeed the wrap was delicious. However, the chips were stone cold. The coleslaw was average, as you would expect really from coleslaw.

We waited a short while, and then headed off from what was Nando's 63, for Notting Hill!

The outlet is located on Kensington High Street, with a number of other eating outlets within the vicinity. You can reach this by bus (many stop outside including 9, 10, and 328) or High Street Kensington Underground station.

Overall a great outlet appearance wise, but the food was a little bit of a let down. Would visit here again.
