This is a family friendly restaurant with consistent good food. The chicken is fresh and tastey. It has a very good children's menu. We eat here often.

We had a dinner here last year August. Their Chicken is Super and even the Salads are delicious. We also enjoyed their rice and the quantity is the most important as it's fairly a large portion. i recommend the place anyone who wish to have a hot meal. Staff members are excellent. And your order is guaranteed within a shortest... More

Workers are always super friendly, and the food is ALWAYS good. You'll vacuum down each bite, especially with their awesome spices. Definitely worth the price.

The Chicken is great and comes in different levels of spice. Be careful, the medium has a nice zing to it. The service was a little off, we had to wait over 20 minutes for carryout and we were given small sides instead of large.

My oh my, this brings back visions of South Africa where I believe Nandos was born. That peri-peri chicken is to die for! Try it spicy hot if you are up to it. Lots of flavor and so tender and succulent. Even though it is a chain, it does not have that commercialized feel. It is a must stop if... More

Our experience here was so positive we wondered if some of the previous reviewers were in the same place. We were at Nando's for dinner, around 7:00 pm on a Saturday night, and the place was hopping. We were askedby the hostess if we had been there before, and we said no. She seated us, explained how it works and... More
