Located in the ground floor of the o2 centre, they weren't too busy early on a Sunday evening and we were quickly seated. It was actually my first visit to a Nando's but luckily my girlfriend was aware that you have to go up to the counter to place your initial order. We enjoyed our veggie burger and wrap together...

The gentleman who served me came across as aggressive and made me feel like i should not be ordering food. Everything i said was met with an eye roll and attitude. I cut my order short as could not be bothered to deal with the pain i was obviously causing him by ordering my food. He made a point of... More

This place's specials are about chicken, but in fact I would say they cannot cook chicken at all. The meat was partly burned down and tasteless. Green salad and mashed potato were OK.

Not disappointed! Great food with great service. Staff kept coming around to our table asking if we are alright or need anything. Service was good and food was fast. Great big space with nice Latin music and interior deco. Perfect for visits with family and friends.

Told to wait 15-20 mins for a Butterfly Chicken meal to be cooked, which seemed reasonable. Management kindly offered to provide us with free olives and nuts in apology for the wait, which wasn't even asked for! Definitely recommended if you're shopping here!

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...
