Just wanted to give these guys the nod as they always make the customer feel welcomed from the outset. Sadly, the team at the till were grumpy which made my girlfriend feel harassed and as though our order was a hassle.
However, not withstanding, we were served very swiftly indeed and yes, we will return at some stage...

very good idea, quick service, excelent flavours. if you in a rush and fsncy some quick tasty anfd filling up food, will be the place to go. very good, the sauces are to die for and you dont need to have spicy, although that in my case, because i love it, i will went for the extra hot.

We were priviledged to sit in the 'barrel' which is great because it fits about 10 people. The downside is that the 'barrel' amplifies your voices - it's like being on a stage and having a microphone! Not that I'm complaining; just something to be aware of before whispering sweet nothings in your partners ear :-)

So the atmosphere was good, the food - standard Nando's fare - much to my liking; but the service was a bit shabby. Not all of our food was delivered, and when queried it we waited a further 20 minutes or so for it to come. For at least 10 of these minutes we could see it sitting on the counter ready to be served. Needless to say when it did come it was cold.

Will continue to come back to Nando's but hope that the service bucks up a bit when we next visit!

You know what you're going to get at Nando's and this one is no exception. Food was prepared quickly and well packaged for me as I was taking it away. In the chill of a February evening, people in the restaurant continued to wear their outdoor clothing since the restaurant is just inside the entrance to the O2 shopping centre and is open to the atrium. It was freezing!
Decoration was the usual eclectic mix of styles and there was a good atmosphere.
Nando's is famous for encouraging you to eat with your fingers but it would have been really helpful to have been given a plastic knife and fork. Eating salad with your fingers is not easy.
