I had a butterfly burger with peri peri chips, and everything was cooked to perfection. I was served by Lorel, and she made a very good impression. Lorel was very kind, friendly, and very helpful!

Was so pleased with our service! A lovely lady with glasses who greeted us was very happy to help and she made sure we felt very welcome.. My friend realised the store had been refurbished and she talked through the new and improved changes, and when ordered the food came within 5 minutes ( we were pleased as we were hungry) ! The staff member made sure we were satisfied and was very warming .. Great staff great resturant! Thank you!

I enjoyed a lot because the food was amazing and the staff were very kind, particularly Elodie. She kept asking if we needed anything and checked to see if we were enjoying. Overall I felt very welcomed and I would definately want to go again.

This pleasant lunchtime Nando's went down well after a fairly long train and bus journey. It's located in the food court alongside other eateries such as Prezzo and Ed's Diner. There's a cinema next door which is more exciting!

This Nando's has a rather old feel to it, but has been decorated very nicely and includes a tasteful upstairs seating area overlooking the ground floor. There are plenty of interesting artefacts to check out which is why it gets a 4.

The 87th Nando's on the trail was another in London, meaning that we got to do it on a working weekday night. Seven of us travelled to Wandsworth by bike and various forms of public transport. The restaurant is nestled between a few of the common chains on the top level of the shopping centre, just under the cinema. Despite the place appearing and sounding busy, we were told they had a an area for us almost right away.

Despite the date of Friday the 13th, we were very lucky in terms that we didn't have to wait long to be seated.
After a ten minute walk from the train station, which wasn't too bad, this branch is not that difficult to find. Inside the Southside shopping centre, which also has parking and access to many bus routes leading to Richmond, Putney and Clapham, its easy to get to.

This store is in the Southside shopping centre where there are many stores from TKMax to Primark including such greats as Waitrose and the post office. The Centre has 2 car parks with 1.6 and 2 metre height restrictions so not somewhere for a minibus. The parking isn't too badly priced for London costing £1.50 an hour. The store is on the upper level next to a Cinema.

I was on a date and everything was going swimmingly between us! But the highlight of my night was when our food had arrive. I said "woow that was really quick. Thanks alot. Whats your secret?" And the waiter whispered to us... "IM BATMAN". We both burst out into laughter. When we finished our meals, we left a tip and left a note saying "Thanks for protecting us from hunger x" & *drew the batman symbol. Didnt catch the waiters name, but we hoped that made him chuckle :]

I went to the Wandsworth branch to take my Mum for her first Nando's, and while the food was brilliant, it wasn't the best venue for it!
