“Explosion of Flavors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

MEDIUM hot was good for me. We also had the squash with corn and cranberries. Order a grilled cheese panini for your fussy one. Garlic bread was delicious and the rice was flavorful. I wish there was one in Phoenix AZ!

“Very good food, great price, fast casual food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Nando's is a very good new casual fast food chain with very good food and a very good price. You decide what you want, order at the counter and the food is then delivered by the staff. The chicken and sides are really good, the optional hot sauces are excellent and you can refill your drinks (soda) as much as you want. If it's ambiance you're looking for, go somewhere else.

“Interesting selections”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Yesterday I visited Nando's after catching a movie at Rio with friends. The selection here for "light" meals and late night fare are good. Their wine's are from Portugal and South Africa, the Robertson Cab was very nice. I had the hummus, which by itself was delicious and is a generous serving. It also comes with hot pita bread and a tiny bottle of spice. Tip - make sure to shake the spice thoroughly before mixing into the humus. The spice adds different levels of "kick" to an already tasty dish.
My friends both had the famous wings. They have many offerings and many sauces to sample. There was one called "Creamy" it seemed to be some sort of yogurt based sauce but not like the ranch dressing my friend was craving.
This place has both indoor and outdoor seating. It is not the place you want to go if you are looking to be waited on. You actually go up to the counter, order and then servers deliver your food.
Overall the experience was very nice. The prices reasonable and I would definitely go to try other dishes.

“HOT! This is a tough place to visit if you can't handle the heat.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Great decor and vibe at this suburban joint and our family of four really wanted to like the food. However, we found it just way too hot. Guess we're not cut out for this degree of spice.

“Not average chicken”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Good lay back restaurant. Very casual, but the food is really delicious! The chicken has a kick to it, that what makes it stand out from other places. My mom enjoyed the food, me too. Great value as well. I also enjoyed the music choice they have... a little bet of latin
