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.

After being disappointed that Nando's did not have the chicken livers or the brussel sprouts, I settled on their famously touted grilled wings late night on this past weekend. I was pleasantly surprised. They were small, but very flavorful. Went back the following afternoon and took some back to the hotel for later that evening. I wish I would have... More

May take a time or two for you to find what's best for you here, but the chicken is as good as most of the world knows, and it's a great place to grab a quick, good dinner. It's noisy, busy, boisterous, but the food comes perfectly cooked and pretty fast. Lots of families; not a romantic hideaway, but you... More

This place is hit or miss. I've had mostly hits though. The AC wasn't working so it made eating a spicey lunch a little uncomfortable. The chicken their signature is always grilled to perfection and to my desired spice level. Their side dishes however are inconsistent. The garlic bread is HUGE but usually comes out cold. The avocado is sometimes... More

Great chicken livers, wings and kale salad. Although ordering is different. The food is good. Nice light lunch and a good location.

I usually love Nando's but I had to walk out of the location in downtown Silver Spring yesterday. A friend and I were seated and told to go up to the counter and order our food. There were at least six staff in the kitchen area. They were having a lively debate and they were all eating and drinking while... More

I see this chain all over the world, UK, Australia, UAE, Singapore and was very curious to try it, figuring that they must have done something right to have such worldwide success. My expectation was hyped when I entered a stylishly decorated restaurant with a friendly and helpful host (even though it is an "order at the counter" restaurant and... More

There were 17 of us and they handled the crowd amazingly well. I ordered the Butternut Salad and was surprised at how spicy it was, but all seemed very happy with their food. I definetly would try this restaurant again.

This is a chain restaurant that is very consistent and good quality. I really like the chicken pita and their red skin mashed potatoes.
