Hounslow - Elliott Waters Review
The first of a Nando's extravaganza, Hounslow was the place where it all started.
Entered the outlet, and was greeted by an incredibly friendly Nandoca, who advised of a 10 minute wait. In reality it was much much less than this, and we were shown to a table almost immediately. We didn't even sit down, as having had plenty of time to discuss, Gerre and I had already decided what we were ordering.
I went to the till, and my order was taken by another incredibly friendly Nandoca, who navigated the order with no hassle. Redeeming a red reward, the total due came to 55p. Bargain! Travelling via the cutlery and sauce area, I returned to the table.
The outlet is split in to three areas. As you enter, there is a little table where you are welcomed, to the right is the first area, to the left the second, and the third is at the rear of the outlet. The first area contains the till and grill on the right hand wall, and a small waiting area next to the window. There is a small amount of seating in this area too. The second area is all seating, and is all tables, some bench seats. with no booths. You pass through a small corridor, which contains cutlery area and toilets, to the third area. This contains booths on the right hand side, bench seating on the rear wall, and a large table in the centre. There is some impressive artwork around the outlet, a worthy 4 on the Nando's scale.
The meal arrived after 11 minutes, and was pretty good. I ordered chicken burger mango and lime with pineapple, chips, and spicy rice. The chicken was incredibly juicy, plenty of Peri-Peri on it. The bun was nice and warm, the lettuce and tomato being winners too. The pineapple added a wonderful fusion to the dish. The spicy rice was lovely and warm, and the chips were equally good. Portion sizes were very generous too.
The outlet is located adjacent Hounslow bus station, served by many different buses from across London. Parking is available at one of the town centre car parks, which are all a short walk away.
Overall, a really enjoyable meal, in a really enjoyable surrounding. Would recommend this outlet!
