Nearby: 
Nando's is pretty much next door to Sydenham train station. Being Sydenham, you are less than a mile or just one train stop from Crystal Palace, where there's an Everyman cinema.
Parking: 
There is a free car park in Girton Road, which is under 0.5 mile walk away.

Ive been to the Nando's in Sydenham 3 times and everytime has been a bad experience i would be one of the first in and order a take away for myself and my 2 year old daughter but always the last one out... I find the food isn't great too the staff are quite miserable looking and not very welcoming...so overall its not a Nando's i recommend to anyone it has actually put me off of all Nando's!!!

I just walked into the new Nando's in our area, Sydenham. What a disappointing experience! We got told after waiting by the door with another party for 5 minutes 'We are at full capacity'. Baring in mind I could see 5 free tables in front of me this was a crazy excuse. The place was filled with dirty plates and dishes too! After waiting for it to open, everyone around I was extremely annoyed. The manager didn't even come to speak to us after requested either and didn't look bothered!

Popped into Nandos in Sydenham midweek , around 2pm . Waited at the door area and after 4 minutes my daughter had to approach the waitress, who had passed us a couple of times. No acknowledgement . We asked if we could have a table for 2 and was told none were available. Right in front of us were 2 six seater tables with benches and said to the waitress we would like to sit there and eat and would move if a 2 seater became available. She said NO!

Opening day at Sydenham!

Stopped into this Nando's early afternoon and it had only just been open for a couple of hours on its opening day, so it wasn't too busy just yet. It probably goes to show the sort of area it is in, as there was a security guard on the door...

When I arrived at the door I asked for a table for two for me and my son this was my first visit to this Nando’s I was told they were full and we could not wait either there was tables available and not many people in the waiting area, I have never been turned away from any Nando’s ever this was very disappointing and has put me of going there again which is a shame as I work in the area and live close.
