This Portuguese casual dining restaurant chain known for its flame-grilled peri peri chicken was crowded when we went and appeared to be quite popular. It's also right next to a parking garage so I'm sure that helps attract customers. I tried... More

I love Nando's Peruvian Chicken, today I tried their salad for the first time and this was my first time at this location. It was ok. I'll be going back to the bird next time. I did have my usual side order of butternut squash with corn that never dissapoints. The staff at this location were extremely sweet and professional!... More

I realize that this is a chain and not a five star restaurant, but in have heard so much about Peri Peri chicken that I wanted to try some. So we tried here. The menu had different choices from chicken wings to whole chicken and different sauces. The drink included beer, sangria and others. So all was ok until we... More

I went to Nando's with my wife + 2 kids, as well as with another family of 3. First, this place is pretty kid friendly. We saw lots of people with kids there, ranging from infants to teenagers. Second, you can order beer, wine, and sangria. You've got to order at the counter though - and the food is then... More

Ate there tonight for the first time. The food was pretty good for quasi-fastfood, but the overall experience was not good because of pretty severe disorganization. I couldn't find any cutlery (it's at at self-service station) and when I pointed this out to one of the workers, they went back to the kitchen to get some. But didn't come and... More

I have been visiting Nando's peri peri quite often recently. The food is excellent and service is quick. This was my first visit to the Bethesda restaurant. The place is well located near a big parking lot and a lot of dessert places. It does take a while to get used to the ordering at this place. Even though, you... More

The 9.99 buffet is a great value! So many flavors and it's all good! A lot of variety and you can walk to Georgetown Cupcake for dessert!

Really good food, always a great experience. I love the fact that I can order my lunch online and pay for it and quickly run in to pick up it. Never spent more than a minute waiting for my food.

I've been to several Nando's, and this was the worst. The food was the same -- and that is essentially a bit different and a bit mediocre. Chicken is okay and the sides sound more interesting than they are. But this place had a "wait for hostess" sign at the front, but no hostess appeared for a very long time.... More
