Really felt welcomed by staff who served us- Josephine- she was absolutely amazing and the food was well done. I would return to that branch as it was a nice atmosphere/experience.
Party of 6 and I had a hot butterfly chicken with peri chips and 5 wings!

This store is in quite a new building and has an interesting high roof with red lighting features, but the floor was very wonky which caused 3 of the tables i tried to rock back and forth so beverage spillage is always a risk at this store, the back stairwell had a bit of a fishy smell.

Chicken was a bit overcooked to what i would prefer and had a burnt wing tip.

I was actually in Dalston and about to head to the Nando’s there, only to find out it was closed for refurbishment (not many things are more annoying!)… So wandered up to the Stoke Newington branch, about 15mins away. The branch itself is on the very long Stoke Newington Church Street, approximately dead middle between Green Lanes and Stoke Newington High Street (A10). I’d guess it’s about 10mins from the station, but 73, 393, 476 (I think!) go past on the narrow road.

We were lucky to get a parking spot right outside the Nando's at 5.36 pm. It was either a 1hour 12 drive to Orpington, though I wouldn't be driving, so I found a London Nando's I hadn't been to and this branch was 50minutes from Ealing Broadway.

I was staying in Dagenham and so decided on a 60+ minute journey to get to another average London Borough - and this time it was Stoke Newington. It's only a half mile walk from the train station, so is easily accessed. I did walk past Wilmer Place car park on the way, which is just a few minutes walk from Nando's, but the car park is small and priced at £1.20/hr up to 4 hours, then £7.20/day, Mon-Sat 7am-7pm and free outside these times.

Overall a very pleasant Nandos, It's a pretty long walk from the train station (Stoke Newington) due to Church Rd being massive but it was worth it. Hot Nandos on a cold night.

The manager came to tell us that our food would be a long time as there was a party going on but then came over with the food straight afterwards! Always a treat when you expect to wait and it comes straight away.
