This is a chain--this location is very close to British Library. For lunch we all had chicken burgers on Portuguese roll with 2 sides--plenty of food. Different levels of spicy sauce--medium is not too spicy but very good. Much nicer than American fast food chains in decor and comfort. Even though lunchtime on a weekday and very crowded, we got a table right away.
The food is really good but not enough. The price are a little bit too high. But it's a very nice place if you want to try some "traditional" Portuguese food.
We ended up here after striking out at a couple of nearby restaurants. We didn't book a table and it was a Friday. We lose.
Anyways, there are a lot of 'interesting' places in Kings X, so without much of a clue where else to turn, we ended up at Nandos. It was a pretty standard Nandos experience. You know what the food tastes like, you know what beer you'll order, and one too many servers will come around to ask if you're doing okay throughout your meal. It's clean and not far from the station, so I'm glad to know it's there.
Oh Nandos.. what a sad little world for those vegetarians who came here with their friends.
not being a big fan of chain restaurants, Nando's didn't really leave me any exciting memories as of my experience here.
The veggie burger (mushroom) was basically tasteless and pathetic.
The selection of hot sauce did excite me though.
Chips were average, my friend's Piri Piri chicken breast was of good portion.
Unlimited refills on frozen yogurt was the only up side. Making them dollarzzZ worth the moneyyyY!
A chain restaurant that's quintessential to the London experience. For the Americans out there, think "In and Out" in California or "White Castle" in the Midwest.
It's amazingly delicious.
Good tip. After the host seats you at your table, remember your table number, then GET UP and walk to the cashier to place your order.
I have a fairly big appetite and the 1/2 chicken is just the right portion.

The area around King's Cross is gotten much nicer (ie gentrified) in recent years and a sure sign that it's now up and coming is the addition of a Nando's on York Way (exit left from King's Cross, cross the road and go left up York Way). It's a typical Nandos - very roomy. There's even a floor downstairs though when I was there it looked like they had some flooding problems and the downstairs was closed.
This is a great place to grab a bite to eat. What a relief to have options other than Upper Crust and McDonald's for a quick meal.
STOP PRESS: pygmy chicken discovered in restaurant.
I don't know where Nando's found the original breeding pair of this super small chicken but I take my hat of to them. By careful breeding and enough security to prevent competitors accessing the gene pool they have ensured that they can offer quarter, half and whole chickens at seemingly reasonable prices without having to give much away.
Don't get me wrong, I like what I get in Nando's it's just that I don't get much.
This particular branch is very hand for Kings Cross or, in my case, the nearby Premier Inn and it has plenty of space and some wildly over enthusiastic staff.
Nando's is great if you have a stomach for gallons of carbonated drinks or frozen yogurt (both offered as bottomless options).
Actually it's amazing what you can do with a micro-chicken and a well branded sauce range.
I never knew this Nando's exsisted! I always go to the noodle bar when I'm at Kings Cross, however now I know this is here, I have a new favourite to go to.
This particular Nando's is laid out very well, the service is good and quick; exactly what you expect from Nandos restuarnts.. 5 stars
Quite a spacious Nando's with plenty of tables so even during the lunchtime rush you don't have to queue for too long. The service gets a bit slack when it's busy, especially if you are ordering a takeaway (I waited for 45 minutes the other day!) but overall it's one of the better eating options around Kings Cross.
the best meal we had in the area considering we stayed here for a week. delicious spicy grilled,hot portuguese chicken with 4 sides and 2 drinks cost us 24GBP. no fuss, good, friendly service.nice ambiancelots of young couples! will definitely return and recommend!
