It has been a while since my last visit to Kentish Town Nando's so I deemed it time to give it another go especially as it had been one of the lowest rated London Nando's for a while. It must be said that it is nothing special from the outside and the ordering area can get messy since it is close to the entrance where people walk in and out but on this quiet Tuesday lunchtime, that was never going to be a problem.

I went for a table at the back of the restaurant this time having only sampled the front area previously. There are a couple of booths above which a wide range of eye-catching artwork can be seen but I can still only give 2 for décor overall as I still feel this one could do with a makeover.

Food arrived quickly as I went for my usual (half a chicken extra hot, double peri chips and halloumi) and Maria tried out the new avocado and green bean salad which she very much enjoyed. Lots of peri on the chips but my chicken leg was slightly lacking in meat and I would have been outraged and sent it back had I only ordered a quarter.

The staff did the usual and manager Steve's quirky, stripey shirt sure caught the eye!

All in all, it was a definite improvement on last visit but it's hard to say how much of that is down to peak v off-peak timing.
