Had Nando's many times. Love their chicken which can marinated in diffrent levels of sauce. The sides are great, but my true favorite was the steak sandwich whihc was removed from the menu recently. Unlike most restaurants, this steak sandwich was a full grilled steak, and not just a precut sandwich. Fully recommend, if you want an inexpensive dinner with... More

Had dinner there. The setting is pleasant but the set up a bit odd: assigned a table, then order at counter, then server brings it to you. Staff was nice and the wait fairly short. The food was tasty but the portions were small. I had the boneless chicken breast and two sides for $14.25 and was still pretty hungry.... More

My coworkers and I ate lunch here. I had the chicken breast and fries. Even with saying I wanted the chicken plain, no sauce, it was a little spicy to me. The fries were also seasoned. There were no real complaints from any of the 6 of us. Order was placed and served and eaten within our one hour allotted... More

Refused service for being a Trump supporter. Small Hispanic woman working there treated us badly as we wearing suits and ties on inauguration day. Go figure, I guess their afraid they won't be able to staff their restaurants with illegals anymore.

First time here and I would recommend and come back! Came here with a group of 7 - mix of kids/adults. We shared the large platter of chicken with 2 large sides and it was more than enough for adults. We split mild and the next level of spice up since we had kids. One of the better grilled chickens...

I like Nando's, it is quick easy and you know what you are getting......Chicken. That said the atmosphere here was good and so was the service. I felt slightly jet lagged but did not have to wait long to get served which helped.

This is my second time at a Nando's Peri-Peri. The food is flavorful, from the meat to the side orders. I had the 1/2 chicken with mango-lime sauce. It had just a touch of heat, which was fine for me. However, you can get your food prepared all the way from mild to blazing! I had the corn and squash... More

I went in to grab a quick takeout. Even though the food is slow cooked, takeout arrives in a reasonable time and with friendly service. The chicken is very good and they provide various sauce and heat options and several sides.

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.
