I did like the food, but I didn't like the service. They had nothing to do, but there was missing some soft drink, wasn't there any forks etc.. They keep chatting.. They didn't really care anything. I experienced much better nandos before. I wouldn't go back .

Very poor service and food that I would not feed to animals. I had a 25 min wait until someone came to instruct me on how to order, even after I asked many times.

One of the worst meals I've ever head. The garlic bread was almost inedible. The chicken burger had hardly any meat in it at all. The bun was dry and chewy - like it was stale. The chips were hardly cooked. The service was absolutely shocking. I could see all 6 of our plates ready on the pass. The staff... More

Nandos is always a winner. We love the food. The chicken wings are good. Tried the quinoa salad and it was really good

Typical Nandos, good chicken, especially the wing, other half had the breast which was very well cooked Service could be improved, although our cashier was very nice the server was a little abrupt. All in all brings me back to SA.

You hope you know what to expect with Nando's...and this was spot on! Kids meals were great value and Jessica (2) particularly enjoyed her sweet potato mash! Gf and I shared a meal platter, and the chicken was lovely and the peri chips mountainous! Great service too....I know its fast food, but this is the best kind!

Staying in Spitalfields

Neighborhood Profile
Spitalfields
For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the next big global trend, the hipster zone of Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

 Wedged between the business-minded City of London, expressly trendy Shoreditch, and zestful Whitechapel, the lines between traditional and contemporary beautifully blur in this historic East End nexus.
