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

Nearest tube in Monument, so District line. the Nando sign outside is very hard to spot. poor first impression. do they honestly expect anyone to eat in what is basically an entrance hall? I hope not. the greeter scurried off, without a word, downstairs to the main seating area and turned around looking perplexed as we hadn't followed her. she showed us to a table tucked away around the corner. it wasn't a particularly nice spot but as the branch is so small, there was not much choice. the trainee who took my order was lovely and smiley and friendly. no name badge, just "trainee"....shame. when my food eventually arrived it was tepid. the sweet potato mash was not mash as we know it. my fellow dinner had to beg a bottle of lemon and herb sauce from a nearly table as none available at the 'sauce-station'. the toilets are two more flight downstairs. talk about journey to the centre of the earth. and the stairways are bloody freezing. the ladies loo has a bonkers automatic flush with a mind of it's own, but they have some lovely tiles in the ladies in a honeycomb pattern. the main eating area has some interesting earthenware bottle artwork on one wall. and bare bricks on another. I have no idea what might've happened to the table clearing staff. perhaps it was their night off? I won't be rushing back.
