I was excited to go to Nando's as I'd heard great things about it. However, the customer service left something to be desired. Nando's takes orders and serves food differently. It would be awesome if they told you how to do it. They seemed really...More

Good chicken with lots of flavor. We had a good time here and the staff was friendly. We ended up getting a few platters as we were there with a large group of family/friends. We will definitely return when we are in the area.

Wife and I walked two blocks to Nando's. I ate in a Nando's in South Africa in the mid 90's - so I was quite familiar with their dishes. I've got to say this was one of the tastiest meals we've had. I had the...More
