Southwark Arches - Ryan Review
Had a fleeting visit to Southwark Arches after a trip to see Spamalot - and was delighted with this very nicely decorated restaurant!
From the moment you walk up to the archway underneath the railway, it's like a shining beacon (well, when it's dark). As you walk in, the walls at the top of the stairs and immediately to the right of the entrance are packed with bright canvas paintings. Five or so huge wicker vases make up the large circular booths running along the middle of the restaurant, with further booths on the left hand side. Fantastic lighting illuminating the arch wonderfully. The toilets themselves are certainly different for a Nando's. An orange metal-clad portakabin it seems, with some Dunelm Mill style hand basins in the middle of the toilet.
Only half full, so no wait to queue or order and the food came in just under 10 minutes.
A truly delicious half chicken - a very generous sized portion cooked to perfection and smothered in sauce. A very generous portion of rice and chips - both cooked very well indeed. Superb.
Staff were doing the bear minimum.
