Wandsworth - Damien Review
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. We were offered two back-to back tables on the high-up area towards the back, but instead decided we could all squish together instead, and stuck with the one table. Service was relatively fast at the tills, but the place could do with putting a few staff elsewhere. The restaurant looked a mess and there were no forks (the container marked "forks" was actually full of knives). There was a toddler's birthday party going on in the small, dark upstairs area, which may have been the cause of a bit of this mess, but there seemed to be little to no damage control effort being made.
The food arrived to the table relatively quickly and was the general Nando's affair, with very dry-looking garlic bread being the only problem that sticks to mind. While the food was still nice, the place doesn't really strike me as a Nando's I'd want to go to again. It really is a quick in-and-out before the film kind of Nando's.
