Went with a bunch of about 8 friends. You order at the counter, then they bring it to you. The speed and accuracy was slightly off. Some people were almost finished as some were still getting food. It's low stress though. Food was all pretty...More

Nando's is delicious. They do one thing and they do it well. Be warned though, it may be to spicy for some. This is Caribbean-African-Portuguese spicy; not white people spicy. I'd spilt a sharing plate and get multiple sides if your party can agree on...More

I eat at Nando's all the time. The food is actually quite good. My problem with Nando is that I have never been once and had good service. They run out of things, the food takes forever, the staff does not seem to take proactive...More
