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

Unlike many branches, it was possible to reserve a table for a large group the day before in order to avoid disappointment. There were no problems in terms of arriving as a big group on a Tuesday evening (even though it was Bank Holiday) and although the branch was quite busy, there was hardly a queue when we decided to order.

Food was of a high standard and service was excellent, I left feeling truly satisfied and the speed of service was also commendable even though there were 20 of us.

It is one of the bigger branches and much effort has been put into the decor with a lot of space between the counter and the grill as well as impressive artwork and lighting. Apparently the downstairs section is a sight to behold too (according to Samuel, branch Manager) but unfortunately there were some burst pipe issues which meant it was out of bounds.
The branch is conveniently located just outside King's Cross Station but with the construction works going on, it can be harder to find than you think when coming out from the Northern Line exit! This of course means that the transport links are excellent with every part of central London easily reachable on the Underground or on the bus. There are no parking restrictions in the evening which allowed a friend to park right outside the branch for free, convenient eh.

The highlight of this Nando's was no doubt the reaction when we (by we I mean Sophie) told the staff about the website and that we would be rating the evening's proceedings. Although the legitimacy of the website was initially questioned, proof via mobile technology proved our existence to be real as well as the slick Rate YOUR Nandos business card! We were accordingly offered free frozen yoghurt for dessert which added a nice touch. Thanks must go to Samuel. All in all, a very positive Nando's ex-peri-peri-ence!
