I like Nando's, it is quick easy and you know what you are getting......Chicken. That said the atmosphere here was good and so was the service. I felt slightly jet lagged but did not have to wait long to get served which helped.

This is my second time at a Nando's Peri-Peri. The food is flavorful, from the meat to the side orders. I had the 1/2 chicken with mango-lime sauce. It had just a touch of heat, which was fine for me. However, you can get your food prepared all the way from mild to blazing! I had the corn and squash... More

I went in to grab a quick takeout. Even though the food is slow cooked, takeout arrives in a reasonable time and with friendly service. The chicken is very good and they provide various sauce and heat options and several sides.

My first experience with Nando's was May 2016 in London and I was very curious to see if this one measured up. YES! The chicken was succulent, flavorful, and grilled to perfection. And easy on the wallet. I ate at Nando's during my three day stay.

Spicy chicken and sides. Tons of options to choose from here. Kids menus offers endless frozen yogurt OR a soft drink with their meal. We had tried pita sandwich, the chicken sandwich, the caesar with chicken, and the 1/4 chicken. All have been really good.

Succulent chicken pieces with a range of spice levels for the accompanying sauces. Great location; downtown Silver Spring, on a cordoned off street with only pedestrian access. Better option than the one in downtown DC if one wants to drive; parking options nearby at lower price than DC, with greater availability.

Took the gang to lunch there today and everyone enjoyed it very much. We all got different types of chicken dishes, and they were all different spices and flavors. I myself got the chicken wings in hot and thought they were really good.

Grilled chicken at its best with dozens of sauces to choose from for your chicken - food comes plain, mild or spicy. Staff is welcoming - menu is diverse - I eat there often. Prices are reasonable - great for families.

I have been to a few different locations throughout the area and have never been disappointed. Always solid service and good tasty chicken. I would also recommend the nuts, we got them once and they were delicious.
