    nothing mind-blowing about this place, but chicken and other foods are very solid (and a bit spicy). Lemon and herb chicken was all right.

    Peri-peri! Everything is good but the grilled manchengo cheese on that entree salad takes the cake.

    Love Nando's but previously only has it in the U.K. This branch has more options but it tastes just as good. Favourite of mine is Chicken Pita, double cheese, hot with peri peri fries and a Nata

    The flame roasted grilled chicken is good but the peri peri sauce you put on it is what makes Nando's stand apart, hence the mention in its name. Unique sides like mashed peas with chili flakes.

    I'm a fan of Nando's. Healthier fast food with good vegetarian options. This time it was unbelievably slow. Not sure why.

    Can't decide between the lemon and herb or the mango and lime? Get both and share! Chicken is always tender and juicy. Well-priced, and has more selection than the west coast. I miss this place!

    Nandos which is South African owned: - the sauce is hotter. I think they presume Americans can't take the heat.

    The garlic peri sauce is the shiz! The sangria is yummy but it's only because it's mostly Sprite... If planning on getting the garlic bread side, get the app instead. For a $1 more, you get 6 pieces

    Liver is not good while everything else is very good. Much better than KFC in term of quality. KFC is about fried chicken though.

    Half chicken hot with rice and corn. The hot sauce definitely has a kick, but it's not unbearable or scorching. I could have ordered a 1/4 chicken and had more than enough with 2 sides.
