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

Although it took a few minutes before we were seen to on arriving at the Islington branch, the 5 of us did not have to wait for a table on a lively Thursday evening.
The branch is a 5 minute walk from Angel tube and ideally situated if you happen to be going to a concert at the O2 academy after (which we were doing) as the walk is long enough to digest but not too long to be a strain (7-8 minutes).
There was a short queue to order and the food then arrived in 10 minutes. All members of the group received their food at the same time which has been a problem in other branches. Peri salt was generous although my leg could have been meatier. I would have left still feeling peckish had my friend not generously given me a large chunk of her leg.
Staff were keen to help and brought over knives, extra extra hot sauce and extra plates.
The only problem with the layout is that the tables on the ground floor near the toilets are two flights of stairs from the water machine.
The toilets were far from clean which was disappointing, toilet roll on the floor and ducktape covering part of the wall as if they had been previously vandalised. Overall a good Nando's nevertheless!
