The food here is delicious. Casual atmosphere. Friendly servers! I highly recommend! Everything is cooked fresh right in front of you. They have a small but good wine selection as well.

The food here is good and the service is good. The chicken Caesar wrap and the hummus are particularly good. They have good happy hours as well. Great place to go before seeing a movie.

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

Food is good but the operation was truly chaotic. Had to wait almost 10 minutes to even order my food, gave the same table to two parties, no sauce at the condiment station, hostess to seat customers disappears so even when there are tables there...More
