This place is not for people who chicken out (ha ha) when it comes to spice, since everything seems to have a bit of a bite. My husband's review would probably be very different (he had some trouble with the spice level), but I love the chicken here. My favorite is the grilled wings. Sides are unmemorable, but chicken is... More

My kids love Nando's, and I think the food is quite okay. It's healthy and the chicken is very flavorful. However, I cannot understand why you would come into a restaurant, sit down, be greeted by a server and then asked to go up to the counter to give your order and pay for your food. Then you sit back... More

The food is excellent, although lacking on service a little. But the atmosphere and the food alone will make you want to go back again and again. Definitely the best place by far in silver spring

We were in Silver Spring overnighting and loved this place so much on our last visit, that we had no question as to where our lunch would be. We arrived around 300pm on a Tuesday afternoon, finding just a handful of diners inside. We were greeted and seated. We browsed the menu and placed our orders at the counter. The... More

I had the pleasure of eating at the Nando's in downtown Silver Spring, Md, with a friend. We both enjoyed our lunch. The menu is short and sweet and the food is nicely spicy. Service was fairly quick. We enjoyed the patio seating too.

I had the veggie sandwich and a drink. Be careful when they say hot they mean it. The veggie burger was delicious and the fries were good as well although I would recommend they do mot salt them.

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
