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

After struggling to find parking on the road which leads up to Kingsbury Tube Station (Jubilee Line), we managed to find a space on Honeypot Lane which was free rather than the pay and display spaces on the high street itself.
This Nando's is quite different from others in North London and offers a range of seating on normal chairs, stools and sofas.
It was a quiet Tuesday lunchtime when we strolled in and had our choice of table as the branch was so quiet. We sat near the window and ordered straight away. Branch Manager Adnaan was extremely helpful and put our order through. The food arrived after around 15 minutes although my friend's large peri chips did not arrive for a few minutes after the whole chicken which we were about to attack. It must be said that the large peri chips had been sprinkled with more peri peri salt than I had ever seen before and the chips portions themselves were extremely generous :).
Overall the food must be a 4.5, the chicken was great but I wouldn't say it was the best I've ever had!
As for the decor, an impressive set of prints with matching circular frames caught my eye in this petite yet cosy Nando's!
