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

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!

This Nando's wins the award for the best sink which sits in a kind of free-standing cylindrical, metal structure. The bathrooms are pretty cool too.

Food arrived within 15 minutes and was pretty good all round, but a more generous peri salt helping wouldn't have gone amiss. My chicken was pretty spicy and tasty, but the garlic bread was slightly burnt.

All in all, an interesting new Nando's which fills a big hole in the Essex Nando's community!
