My family from South Carolina was in town and we were in downtown Silver Spring and wanted lunch. I suggested Nando's. They had never been to one. I proudly said, "you have to try it, you will love it". And they did! My favorite are the wings. I love the medium. One of my cousins is a vegetarian and Nando's... More

Nando's is following the restaurant trend of everything being self-serve except the food you order. As long as you're comfortable with that, you'll like it here. The decor is fresh with hanging lights, indirect lighting, and wood everywhere. Jazzy international music plays in the background. I took my time ordering from the woman at the register and she was very... More

I was staying in Silver Spring a few nights last week, and my hotel was very close to this "downtown mall" area of restaurants, shops and bars. I was able to make it in before closing on a Wednesday and had a tasty meal. The host was great, she was very smiley and gave this first-timer a good walk-through of... More

My daughter and I were looking for a place to have lunch one Sunday afternoon and she suggested here. The food was good. We decided to go back for dinner last month and again I was very pleased with the food. The different strength of spicy on the chicken combined with the sauces was great on the chicken. I had...

I have been living in Silver Spring for some time and this is my go to place whenever a group of friends is involved. The food is amazing and always on point! It is extremely affordable and worth way more than they charge. They always have great music and great sangria's available that make for a great social environment. I... More

This is not listed as nando's Peri Peri but its the right address. We wanted a reasonable and quick dinner after a day in DC. This came recommended and we were very happy. Its reaonably priced but not cheap, but the food is excellent. Not an extensive menu. The chicken was moist and tasty;sauces had kick but not extreme. Highly... More

Nando's is one of the "casual" dining places that are competing with the fast food chains. It is one of the better informal restaurants with very tasty food and relatively low prices. You can get a quarter chicken as spicy as you want with one side order (I recommend the "macho peas", in spite of the name) for under $8.... More

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
