This branch is interesting, it's spread out over four levels the decoration is nice, It has one of the cool giant mirrors and big circly things on the ceiling with the awesome chandeliers. I liked how the place was set out, So the decoration was very nice. It's also really close to the tube station, you just have to walk over the road and look in front of you!

The place was really full when I arrived, to be expected on an evening I expected to have a long wait for a table.. the greeter at the door was very friendly, he misheard my name and thought I told him I was called Nick, so he wrote Nick down on the waiting list, I tried to correct him but he just jokingly said, "Oh well, as long as you know you're Nick" which I found quite funny, He sat me down in the waiting area which had nice comfy seats which most branches don't have for waiting, that makes this branch stand out!

As I said I expected a long wait but only ended up sitting there for about 10 minutes, before "Nick" was called and I got up, the friendly waitress suggested I wait in the queue before going to my table so I did, and she walked over to what table I was at and waved at me to show me where it was which was very helpful. The wait in the queue didn't take long and the person who served me was nice and smiled at me, and soon I was filling up my glass with coke and heading to my table, It was a nice little table on the first level with a good view of the grill, I had a good wait watching the man cook my chicken, he was very quick at doing it
and I was impressed.

The wait for the food was a lot shorter than you'd expect it to be when the restaurant was full and it arrived in under 10 minutes! I'd ordered Butterfly chicken extra hot with chips and garlic bread, and for the first time I decided to try out extra extra hot sauce, It was delicious, I'd long been used to the extra hot sauce so this was a welcome shock to my taste buds, I covered everything in it, I'll definitely be having it next time as well! The chicken was as delicious as it usually is at Nando's, a big piece not burnt and covered in sauce, however the chips were slightly more burnt that usual so that was a bit of a downer, but they were still nice once I'd covered them in extra extra hot sauce. The garlic bread was done just as I like it, slightly burnt and not all soft. I tried something I'd never tried before in this Nando's, I decided to test how trustworthy people in the resturant were, so as I went to get another drink I left my phone on the table, when I got back I was shocked to see it was gone, but it turned out a nice person had actually seen it and handed it in to staff! This made me happy as it's good to know people can be trusted in this world and more important in Nando's!

So overall this was a good branch, not the biggest or best that I've been in, but really quick when busy! and an interesting layout, I recommend this branch at whatever time! Since it's so fast it doesn't matter what time you go because you'll be in and out in about 40 minutes!
