I visited Nando's Finchley Road with my son. We ordered a couple of chicken wraps. The restaurant was very quiet. After waiting almost half an hour we queried the order. They offered no explanation but delivered one wrap a few minutes later. We decided to share the wrap while the other one came. It didn't come. We finished the shared... More

We had the Butterfly Chicken and Prego Steak Roll. The food was absolutely wonderful (we didn't leave a thing). After a disappointing trip 4 days prior, we were given vouchers for our complaint. On our return, we were treated brilliantly by all staff. Thank you to Stefan for throwing in complimentary drinks and natas! We will definitely be returning to... More

Nando's has always been the perfect soul food. It's taste is very consistent as well as its service. Fast quick and easy when on a short lunch break, this restaurant will have u in and out in 30 mins feeling lightly full. A must visit for me every so often and very much recommended. I've never had a bad experience... More

Went to Nados for the first time in almost 12 years and left unhappy. The positives - nice relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, taasty food The negatives - I have NEVER seen a smaller chicken in my life, I order a quarter chicken with two sides, just over £7 I believe, and I was left flabbergasted when the dish arrived with...

I brought two teenage boys to London from California for a vacation. They insisted we needed to eat at Nando's and we were lucky enough to have this one across the street from the hotel. We'd never had peri-peri chicken before and we loved it. Great location, great food, nice staff, fair prices.....great experience! We met an employee named Albert... More

This was a great restaurant with very tasty chicken. Staff were particularly helpful - this was my first visit to this chain so I needed some guidance, particularly on selecting the right level of spiciness. Very good and original side dishes.

The food is just OK. It was very noisy towards the back where they cater for kids parties. Its probably OK for a kids party but not for anyone else there for lunch.

Arguably the best place to enjoy chicken dishes. Originally, I thought this place is traditional Portuguese food restaurant (because of the logo of Nando's), and I rushed inside to try for the first time back in 2008. I will never forget the awesome interior design and food quality that still lives up to today. Prices are...OK. Meaning it is not... More
