The place that seems to be a favourite eat location for anyone who appreciates meat, value and something hot but is it really any good?
I have been to a few Nando’s before and wasn’t that impressed (mainly because of it’s untidy manor) but I must confess I did enjoy a recent trip to Nando’s cool and rather modern Old Street branch. With a rather arty injection, this east London store was fresh, clean and modern in its look, appearance and staff. Clever designs were dotted about from the bench seat built into the wall near the door to the brand’s logo appearing like 3D out of the wall. All the furniture, fittings and feel was all rather habitat but I was really impressed at how inviting the place seemed.
I have always enjoyed a meal at Nando’s so it was great to sample a dish there in this cool setting with a dear friend who seemed to love Nando’s as much as me.
I wanted to experiment with a hot sauce (as I normally opt for Peri Peri) and even though there was a definite kick, it was really enjoyable. I even helped myself to an extra helping which was lush. My friend Craig sadly isn’t one for spice so he stuck to the lemon and herb flavour which I have had for many times and is a great, save option for those who don’t like things HOT.
Even if you have never been to Nando’s, I do think it caters for all. Whether you are adventurous or not, the brand creates some really great food and best yet, it doesn’t destroy your budget which is a totally winner for anyone with high rent and low pocket money.
