“Chickencentric grill.”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

I like this trendy resto with a limited yet tasty chickencentric menu. But be very careful. The birds are sizzling spicy hot even with their plain choices. Quasi self service is not ideal for a romantic date. It is however perfect to bring large group of friends who don't like to share a bill or a tip.You can pick your order on the menu and pay individually at the cashier. The line can be long and slow, kind of reminds you of a Chipotle upgrade. For $20, you can get a full meal with a glass of Portuguese wine.

“Quick, Easy, Tasty Cuisine with International Flavor”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

My family and I love to go to this restaurant as everyone finds something they love on the menu. A visit to Nando's also doesn't take forever since you order up front and they bring the food to you. We love that the bottomless frozen yogurt is included in the kids meal too. I love the salad options and the couscous...the pita and hummus are great as well. The kids also love the atmosphere and Portuguese flair and music. And, the sangria and iced tea are also very good!

“Excellent chicken peri peri”
Reviewed November 2, 2012 via mobile

Loved the very hot chicken peri peri. Returned memories, lived in Mozambique.
This is an example how you can survive on chicken only, serving great chicken.
Concept half self and half service, is not my preferred, but largely compensated by result on plate and dish.
Nice cosy and relax place, missing a little additional touch of Portuguese adventurism.

“Cool place!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

It took us a few minutes to figure out the system of ordering your food and drinks, but it's well worth it. The chicken is very tasty and the sides are good. The frozen yogurt leaves a lot to be desired, though. We also like the interior decor and furnishings.

“Very unique food and atmosphere”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

My wife and I went here during a training trip that I was on. My wife suggested it, and it was extremely close to the hotel. The atmosphere was great. The decor was awesome. The food was awesome. It was good to have something different than the usual fare. I will definitely go back when I get the chance!!
