I've been to Nandos in the UK a few times and when I saw the sign in downtown Silver Spring it was a no-brainier where we would eat!! The food was not disappointing either. The service was as to be expected - cheerful, friendly, helpful staff. The peri peri chicken and sauces were spicy and delicious. The nuts and olives... More

We went there on a stop over in the Washington DC area. It was a wild guess as we did not know where to go. It ended up in an excellent dinner for us and kids. We took the chicken breast with medium spice and it was just delicious. We also loved the concept of order in at the counter,... More

Nice day to be out for a brunch and it's the first time I'd be at a nandos anywhere in the states. Fairly good looking restaurant. Didn't fancy the idea of having to go all the way back inside to order having settled at a table outside. Well I had some Mediterranean salad and chicken. My wife had half chicken,... More

I frequent the Arlington restaurant for lunch. I usually order from the Silver Spring restaurant for dinner take out. As with most restaurants (in my experience) take out is not as good as eat in. This particular Nando's always seems to be crowded and very busy in the evening. Because of that, there is a long wait for my order.... More

This chicken is marvelous! There are several flavors, levels of spiciness/hot to choose from and the butternut squash was delicious. We all enjoyed our food, the staff was friendly and we had plenty of leftovers. Now when are they going to start building these in the Western US? Soon, I hope!

I've been to two Nando's locations so far, and had pleasant experiences both times. One time I got a quarter chicken meal and the second I got a chicken salad. It is a nice atmosphere (you can also get a beer or wine with your meal), and you have options as to how spicy you can make your chicken. It... More

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.
