I really wanted to like this place...it is a warm and inviting place. That said...for a $20 lunch I expected more. I got the wings (voted as one of the best by USA Today) and they were the tiniest little 'full' wings I have ever encountered. Add in the skin and gristle and there was hardly any meat there. What...

I had my first visit to Nando Peri Peri with a friend who dines there often. You come into the restaurant, pick your own table, take note of the the number, and go to the register to order. You tell the cashier the table number so they can bring your food to you. I had the quarter chicken - breast... More

It's tasty chicken, marinated and simply broiled to order, with a variety of tasty sauces to add to your taste. Sides are interesting as well. I was excited when it came to town, since I'd had peri-peri chicken elsewhere, but it's nothing to jump up and down about.

This is a place with good food and a unique atmosphere. The chicken is especially good. It is a little expensive for what you get.

Grilled chicken and rolls. Need I say more. Basic ingredients with a special preparation makes all the difference.

Nando's Peri Peri's Silver Spring has the same spicy & juicy chicken as everywhere else in the chain (really a cut above -- and for a price about equal to Potbelly's across the street -- WAY better than the close-by lunch competition) but the decor shines here even better than other outlets I've been to. The staff clearly enjoy working... More

I was having a bad day and all I wanted was to eat and think. In the midst of that Kevin put a smile on my face because of the great customer he showed me. I'm impressed!! Ask for Kevin when you go!!!

We finally decided to try Nando's Peri Peri after several months of walking past it in downtown Silver Spring. We had gone for lunch on Sunday afternoon. Restaurant was fairly empty. We were seated, then had to go order food where it was brought to us. A little odd for functionality. I ordered a 1/4 chicken with medium sauce, fried... More
