This spot is more sentimental than out of this world food. My wife and I ate here the day we met and it's been a running thing to do on our anniversary ever since. The food is solid, if a tad expensive. The garlic sticks appetizers are fantastic. If you don't like spice stay away from anything above medium for... More

Went here for dinner on a first date at my date's recommendation. There wasn't much to be impressed about, so I'm very confused by the generally positive reviews. Within a few minutes of getting settled, a "server" brought dinner for us, and we explained that we hadn't yet ordered. It was for someone who had moved tables, and the server... More

Staff extremely helpful, but food just okay. Went for lunch. Ordered the chicken pita. Didn't feel it was anything special and that I could make something better at home.

We had dinner outside by the lake - really nice atmosphere here. The restaurant has you order then brings the food to your table. They assign your table, even the outdoor ones. Food is reasonably priced and always good. My vegetarian son had a good looking wrap.

Food was fair to good. Service had much to be desired. You wait in line to order and then they deliver to your table. Our cashier was a little out out to have to wait on us. It was actually a bit uncomfortable. Not sure I would go back.

I enjoyed my PeriPeri chicken wt a great view. Such a great location for families. There are many other restaurants & shopping plaza in the same area, and a movies theater. My first time here, stayed at the RAMADA and they had a shuttle to drop us to RIO. The service at this Nando's was great & it was very... More

The food was good, but definitely overpriced. Not a very friendly staff. Dined outside by the lake and this was nice.

We've dined at Nando's a few times while in the DC area. My son is a huge, loyal fan! While visiting this weekend for 3 days, we ate at Nando's twice. Everything is healthy, fresh and delicious. They have many types of chicken: roasted, grilled, etc., and many more types of Nando's special sauces. Most sides are healthy too, roasted... More

I am not sure why this place is so popular. I guess because of the sauce which is pretty good. But, I think I could make a better chicken sandwich, wrap, etc. and fries at home. The fries are normal fries that they put on a lot of season salt. I would go across the street to Chipotle for a... More
