The food and the service is OK though it can be a little rushed. The early evening deal is good value but otherwise not particularly cheap

Stopped off for a bit of lunch while out shopping. Been here several times and have always enjoyed the food. Good range of dishes, food always very tasty and full of flavour. Great range of cocktails, great way to spend the afternoon.

Dropped in here by chance after walking around Lakeside. Just fancied a change from the norm. Bread platter for starters followed by the chill con carne. Wasn't disappointed. Chilli quite spicy which I enjoyed. Would go back, buy there is so much choice around the area, so it depends on what quisine you are after.

went here with friends after a morning's shopping. A reasonable lunch but somehow not quite as good as the one we had in their branch at Westfield at Stratford. Service was quick and efficient (but they were nearly empty on a Tuesday lunchtime.

On a Sunday after jump Giants my party of over 25 people were very hungry. We reserved an area in Nandos on the boardwalk but the manager did not want to accommodate the extra 5 guests, so we left with no where to eat for lunch. Thankfully the friendly and helpful staff at las iguanas (especially Sam, Chloe and Sara)... More
