Vistited today as have enjoyed Nando’s in many other places. Service was extremely quick, began eating and noticed chicken wasn’t cooked through and still pink. This was then sent back another meal was offered but due to the first poorly cooked meal the risk was not worth it.a Poor apology was offered and we was granted a refund for that one meal.

First day back at work after a long weekend and figured I'd try and keep the holiday feeling going by treating myself to a Nando's takeaway for lunch (or, as it was, let them treat me as I was using my red reward). Baker Street is slightly closer to my office but figured I'd wander down to James Street and visit the newer branch to see how it had come along since I went on its opening day.

No birthday is complete without a Nando's so of all the ones not done yet st. Christopher's place fit into my schedule. Nando's 114 was not bad, the staff were great and the food was nice but some of the other guests were very annoying blowing their noses whilst I was eating which is a real 'pet hate'.

This store is in the so fashionable that it hurts area of St Christoper's place off Oxford street with a expensive Bohemian atmosphere Nandos provides for a cheap destination to eat. The store is quite small but does have a large area of the pavement taken up with tables in common with its neighbouring stores and snazzy parasols which weren't up when I visited. The store inside was small with clean toilets accessed by stairs.

In the Surrey area again overnight - so would have been rude not to pop into Central London to this brand new Nando's. As others have stated, this is just a couple minutes walk from Bond Street tube station and with the various car parks dotted around being £5-£8 per hour inside the congestion charge, it makes sense to use public transport for this one.

Not often you get to go a Nando's on its first official day but, given this branch is in conveniently located just off Oxford Street, it would've been rude not to head down and christen the new joint.

*Dry run review*

Central London has a brand new Nando's which is one minute from Bond Street tube station. It has a small front with a handful of tables as you walk in including some stools for individual seating looking out on to the street while the majority of seating is in the natural light deprived downstairs area.

The decor is rather nice with interesting diamond-shaped tiles lining the walls and a nice private booth near the lavatories.
