There were 3 of us all ordered different, walked in nd wasn't greeted at all nd say our self's...
Table was clear but sticky... No staff around to ask... Went up to order nd young girl on phone taking a order... But she was cut off nd asked me to wait because they would ring back...
4 boneless thighs. Half of chicken nd double chicken burger...
Noticed more staff in kitchen than on the floor....

This branch is about 7 minute walk from Loughton underground station, on a corner of the main high street behind a huge tree. The tree blocks the Nando's sign if facing it but it provides shade in the spring/summer for the large outside seating area. There is a car park for maybe six cars next door in the Majestic wines? Car park.. Can't remember if that's what it was. There is a Topps Tiles nearby also which offers free wi-fi but you need to register...

Parking is terrible as only a few spots for nandos customers and parking restrictions in place daytime evening time is still very busy due to local night life but that is only downside. I've been so many times I must have had all items on menu staff are great couldn't be more helpful!

We knew that the new Nando's in Loughton had experienced some teething problems early on, but I'm happy to say those days seem to be over!

There are quite a few stand-out characteristics which impress at this former car dealership. There's a large outdoor seating area with some tables half inside and half outside, ideal when it's hot and the restaurant front is opened up!

Having not had enough Nando's the day before, I decided to stop into this new Nando's for another bite to eat... I'd also never been to Loughton before, but it seemed like a nice little Essex town!

Nothing Great - I was keen to try out the new Nandos that had only just opening in Loughton. The welcoming staff were friendly and we were seated within 10 minutes and told the wait for food was 30 minutes. We were seated next to the wash barrel???? so had lots of people washing there hands inches from my back, not very nice.
