Have been eating here since this branch opened some years ago. Food quality and decor have fluctuated, but Nando's was always fun in a noisy way...until recently. After a May 2018 Saturday evening early dinner, I developed serious, violent food poisoning (confirmed by doctor), which...More

I had never tried Portuguese food until I ate at Nando's. The chicken bowl was one of the best food items I had during my three week stay in Silver Spring. The prices are reasonable, and they have unlimited Dole Whip for $2.99!!! I invited...More

Been here a couple of times and even not being a chicken fan like theirs OK. I always do takeout and watch them cook. Seems popular and has outlasted several other places in the same area.

Having enjoyed various chicken dishes at Nando's in the past, I decided to give one of their salads a try. The chicken caesar salad, however, was just okay: not enough chicken (though the few chunks in there were fine; too many large pieces of bread...More

The rest of my family loves their chicken dishes. I love their vegetarian sandwich. I've had it with pineapple added, with haloumi cheese added. It's good any way they serve it. My favorite sauce is the Mango Lime, which is not too spicy and very,...More

We had been there a couple years ago and thought it was nothing special. But we went again a few weeks ago, and we liked it very much. The chicken and the sides were all quite good, as was the service.

Perhaps ample for a quick lunch. Specialty is spicy chicken with various intensity of heat to their sauces, and a few choices of sides. My best choice, however, is their portobello mushroom wrap with coleslaw. Vanilla yogurt self soft serve, is ok.

Incredible food. I have two very picky kids and they were so impressed with the food they asked if we could return the next day. Chicken is incredible. Nice atmosphere. Friendly staff. Wish we had a Nando's near us.
