This Nando's is found almost next to Southgate underground station.
Parking: 
There is (poorly signposted) parking found at Minchenden car park priced very reasonably at £1/1hr, £2/3hrs, £3/5hrs and £5/24hrs - these prices are charged Mon-Sat from 7:30-18:30. Most street parking during this time is permit only, but then outside of these times you can park anywhere in Southgate for free.

I ordered Nando’s delivery via Nando’s website (Southgate branch N14) and paid and was told I would have my lunch between 2pm-2.10pm. I was waiting outside for the driver who did not show. I checked my phone and saw it had been delivered but I did not receive it. I called Nando’s Southgate branch and spoke with a Kristina who said she is the manager. She said it’s not her problem and I would have to chase it up with deliveroo.

I ate a really good meal and came really fast . Not only that one thing that particularly stood out to me is one of the staff members , his name was Daniel and he was very welcoming , he was checking if we enjoyed the food which is really nice and all in all he was just very friendly. I think management should take this review to give Daniel credit.

We had to wait more than 40 minutes for the food and the quality wasn’t as expected. The food was cooked in a rush so our chips were not fully cooked so they weren’t soft and crunchy and the chicken felt dry.

This was the best Nando’s meal ever! Service was great and so was the food! Unmatched. Especially the guy on the door + Christos

Had the mushroom & halluomi wrap & peri peri chips. Food came quick; nice and warm; delicious; sauces and drinks were easily accessible.
Young staff, all very attentive and friendly which was really lovely :)

The general decor was great too and added to a great evening.

Nando Southgate is very easy to find, it's directly outside the tube station, on the Piccadilly line. It has a lovely big curved front window.
It has two spacious floors and a lovely waiting room and another waiting area in the main part of the ground floor, right by the till.
The greeter was possibly the most cheerful person i have encountered in any Nando, he was so helpful and very nice.

Finally caught up with Marc after a few years and despite me being rather late... we had some lovely chicken together! :-D And Arsenal won 5-0 so I am sure he was fine about it...

It had been far too long, but finally the opening of a new north London Nando's was a chance to catch up with the man who's been to more Nando's than anyone else (that we know of, at least), Ryan!

The new Southgate Nando's is based on two levels and has a sizeable separate waiting room, a concept which I don't recall seeing at any other Nando's! The staff were all very enthusiastic and busy, with manager Oz telling me about how rammed they've been since opening.
