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.

I was impressed with the menu and atmosphere. This is a very good place to take a family. The food was very good too.

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.

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
