We went in and were soon shown to a table which was rather tacky to the touch and could have done with more cleaning. We ordered and duly waited...and waited...and waited. It took probably over 1/2 an hour to turn up at a time when the restaurant wasn't overly busy. I had a chicken burger and the size of the... More

Just round the corner from Liverpool St station, we popped in here for tea after seeing the Xmas lights in the West End and while waiting for our train home. Fast service, tasty food, even the small side of chips was big, nice sauces to add as you like. Relatively good value for London (which seemed very expensive to us... More

The service was fast. The staff are friendly. The food is average. Nandos originally introduced piri piri to the UK mainstream market however there are so many places offering better quality food. I ordered a quarter chicken with chips and a side. The chicken was dry and I'm aware they have many sauces available however there are other places doing... More

This is a really good branch of the chain. The meals came quickly and were delicious. The staff are polite and friendly and the restaurant clean and very presentable. A safe bet for a quick meal with children. The bottomless yogurt is a big hit.

I just took a friend here for his first Piri-Piri infused chicken experience and as he finished his last morsel he said to me, "I didn't know what happiness was until I'd been to Nando's!" I am somewhat of a Nando's connoisseur and I happily rate commercial street as one of the best branches in London; fantastically knowledgeable staff, service... More

Good chicken and that's about it. Nando's as a chain has been taking over high streets up and down the country. With celebs tweeting about it to earn the infamous black nando's card. More prized than the black Amex card. It's chicken it's good even if a little pricey.

I never had been in Nandos before and I don`t think I would go back again. I had a chicken wrap and it was so dry and the piece of chicken too small. I rather have fried chicken in a corner shop.

One of the daughters was insistent on trying this place, we all piled in expecting chicken piri having spent some time in Portugal maybe our expectations were too high... what can I say? weird set up with the service, this place attracts loud city personalities that if you don't mind listening to everything about them then you are ok... not...

This is the closest Nandos to where I work. I have been often and receive consistently poor service. An example was yesterday. I ordered my meal in the middle of eight of us on a table. It wss midday and the restaurant was not busy. Everyone received their meal except me. I waited ten minutes. I saw a plate up... More

In london late on Friday so wanted some dinner and there was Nando's when other places were closing! We had the houmous starter with pitta bread which was good. Allayne had the Caesar salad which was very good and I had the 1/4 chicken on mago & lime with fries and mixed salad. In both cases the food was more... More
