Having spent my first night up in London in about 20 years so I decided to have the dream scenario of Nandos for breakfast so was on the door step of this high street store bright at 11.30. The appearance wasn't that great from outside and still failed to impress inside. Plus notes for the store are the front windows which open up across the front to bring the outside in and the very best feature is the small yard at the back with a colourful well kept flower display and a few tables. Other than these gems the store is bland and lacking embellishment the toilets were quite bland and had a giant bin in there which didn't really make sense since they had air hand dryers and no paper towels?

Being served the man who served me didn't seem to be full of the joys of spring, fortunately the lady who brought me my food was far more charming and endearing, she also came back to check everything was good and to attempt the secondary sell of coffee and desserts. That's why they get a medium score as what the man lacked the lady had in plenty.

The water machine was broken and they were pouring glasses of tap water from a jug by the till, it was fowl tasting and so left it.

The real shock here was the food, I hadn't got high hopes but it surprised me when it did come out. The chicken breast was very large, perfectly cooked and very succulent definitely a full marks for this delectable treat. The mash was piping hot, good sized portion, creamy and perfectly cooked and probably the best I have had it. The macho peas were also perfectly cooked, hot and juicy. Its true you can't judge a book by its cover as this was one of the best Nando's meals I've ever had. All they need is a little facelift to bring the store up to the same standard as the back yard and the food and this will be one of the top stores going. I would definitely without doubt come back to this store, though if I do, I hope head office have bought you a bit more decoration.
