Stroud Green - Marc Joss Review
Last game of the season at the Emirates and my last pre-match Nando's with Mark for 2012/13. Just like most other cases this season, Arsenal and Nando's were victorious so smiles all round!
This is the closest Nando's to Arsenal and is a 7/8 minute walk from Finsbury Park station. At 6.10 on matchday, the restaurant was almost empty which was reassuring! We ordered straight away and by the time I'd gone to the toilet and returned to my table, my food was there. What more can you ask for?! I just went for a quarter breast (always remember to specify!) with peri chips, garlic bread and halloumi. The food was pretty good although I would have preferred a slightly meatier breast and I don't remember it being at all spicy.
Restaurant décor is quite mixed with some peculiar bottles forming central lighting in the back area but there are also some uninspiring pieces of art on the wall at which I scoffed.
Definitely worth a visit for a quick pre-match Nando's but apart from that, there aren't many reasons to hang around in this area.
