We had dinner outside by the lake - really nice atmosphere here. The restaurant has you order then brings the food to your table. They assign your table, even the outdoor ones. Food is reasonably priced and always good. My vegetarian son had a good looking wrap.

Food was fair to good. Service had much to be desired. You wait in line to order and then they deliver to your table. Our cashier was a little out out to have to wait on us. It was actually a bit uncomfortable. Not sure I would go back.

I enjoyed my PeriPeri chicken wt a great view. Such a great location for families. There are many other restaurants & shopping plaza in the same area, and a movies theater. My first time here, stayed at the RAMADA and they had a shuttle to drop us to RIO. The service at this Nando's was great & it was very... More

The food was good, but definitely overpriced. Not a very friendly staff. Dined outside by the lake and this was nice.

We've dined at Nando's a few times while in the DC area. My son is a huge, loyal fan! While visiting this weekend for 3 days, we ate at Nando's twice. Everything is healthy, fresh and delicious. They have many types of chicken: roasted, grilled, etc., and many more types of Nando's special sauces. Most sides are healthy too, roasted... More

I am not sure why this place is so popular. I guess because of the sauce which is pretty good. But, I think I could make a better chicken sandwich, wrap, etc. and fries at home. The fries are normal fries that they put on a lot of season salt. I would go across the street to Chipotle for a... More

Went to this place with coworkers. Chicken is decent but you can get better chicken at most peruvian chicken places and I can guarantee you that the sauce will be better. For a place that places such an emphasis on its sauces, they leave a lot to be desired. I love peruvian chicken places so I was excited to try... More

Stopped in while traveling toward PA. My cousin loves this place so I wanted to try it. Great choice! The grilled chicken, which was a huge serving, with perfectly crisped skin and a wonderfully prepared (READ: real greens with mixed peppers, not simply an iceberg) salad. Loved the atmosphere, would be a great date spot, along with the adjacent boardwalk.... More

I have always loved Nando's because their food is well seasoned and flavorful, and this one certainly met my expectation. My teenage son is picky about food, but Nando's got his approval. He loved the mashed potato and extra hot chicken!
