My only experience with this chain was when I worked in Toronto. It was not great but I thought I would give it a shot in the US out of convenience. There is no table service so you need to order at a counter and...More

My husband and I decided to find out what all the hoopla was about regarding Nando's Peril-Peri; we still don't know. The butterfly chicken was dry and tasteless. The chicken Caesar salad was just awful. The service was terrible from the moment we got there...More

If you’re planning to visit on a Friday eve, don’t bother. Service is appalling and food is nothing like Nandos UK after all that wait for the table. First and the last time for me at Nandos USA! 🙄

English family staying in Washington, wanted to try American Nando's as we love it back home. Although the chicken was well cooked, the sides (which make the meal) were awful. Overly salty fries, lumpy mash, unfriendly service. Nothing like UK Nandos, unfortunately!

Really liked the selection and quality at Nando's Peri Peri would go there weekly if I could visit and lived in the area.

First time lunch for us. We got the platter with the original (plain) and macho peas with Portuguese rice. Delicious. Even the pasteis de nata were good. Too bad the grill wasn't working because we'd love to try the chicken livers too.
