Comments - Stand out in our monthly competition! What did you eat? Unique aspects? Parking/transport tips?: 

A lovely new Nando's right next to a Waitrose by the North Circular road. Parking was easy in the Waitrose car park, though technically you are supposed to go and buy something inside if you want to take advantage of the 2 hours free!

Service couldn't have been better, with the Nandoca on the till being super friendly, and patrao Jake giving us some fun facts about this new restaurant. The food itself came in perfect timing, with the houmous turning up at the table within 5 minutes, followed by both mains at the same time (despite separate orders) 5 minutes later.

Food itself was a comfortable 4.5/5, with my only negative being the slightly poor distribution of chicken and halloumi in the wrap. It is never an easy thing to get right, but I ended up with lots of chicken at the start, and then mostly just halloumi at the end. Still delicious though! Chips were piping hot and had a very nice amount of peri-spice on them despite being served in one of the small chip bowls.

Would definitely return!
