Nando's is delicious. They do one thing and they do it well. Be warned though, it may be to spicy for some. This is Caribbean-African-Portuguese spicy; not white people spicy. I'd spilt a sharing plate and get multiple sides if your party can agree on...More

I eat at Nando's all the time. The food is actually quite good. My problem with Nando is that I have never been once and had good service. They run out of things, the food takes forever, the staff does not seem to take proactive...More

I work in DC so I'm there often. It happens that Nando's is near two of the places I work, so I go there somewhat often. I typically get a 1/4 chicken, breast and thigh (I think it is) along with rice and mushy peas....More

Decent food, staff not particularly friendly other than the guy who cleared our plates, he was so polite and respectful. Menu slightly different to the UK menu which I'm used too. Nothing really to complain about there just wasn't a wow factor. Portions were small...More
