This was my second visit to Nando's this weekend, I was planning to go to a Canary Wharf branch but I decided to go to one I hasn't been before. It's easy to find in the O2, you just enter, turn right and follow the road of restaurants until you come across it. Obviously it's in a really good location for doing other stuff, there's a cinema and of course the O2 arena!

This was a big branch over two floors, but they did the annoying thing were they cram everyone in one area and leave loads of tables free! So we ended up on a table for two on the loud second floor, the people there that night were really annoying, I prefer quieter branches.

The decor is standard Nando's, but it has a big spiral staircase in the middle which earns it a lot of points! But I was disappointed we didn't have a window view.

Ordering the food was stressful, the queue was huge and the annoying people I mentioned earlier kept pushing in to talk to the waitress about some kind of problem, however I eventually ordered and got my free quarter chicken (breast).

The Nandoca told me that the food would be about 20 minutes but it arrived in about 13 minutes. The chicken was not as tasty as the one is had earlier in the day... It didn't have enough sauce on so I had to get the extra extra hot sauce. The portion of chips was very big, a lot more than i'd had that morning, but they weren't as tasty, just a bit crispy. The garlic bread was undercooked and not burnt enough.

I doubt I will go to this branch again unless I happen to be seeing something at the O2, and I'd suggest the same for anyone else considering it.
