We were traveling with two kids 9 and 6 and had a dinner there on a weekday. Family appropriate ambience, good food albeit the six year old found everyone too spicy for her taste even the least spicy items we ordered. The selection of sauces from mild to spicy was very food. We enjoyed the laid back atmosphere too. Side... More

nando's has the best grilled chicken in the region and the Bethesda store in the franchise is no exception. Quick service. Food is served piping hot. This restaurant is right next to the big parking garage in Bethesda and across from the Apple Store, North Face, etc. Viva Nando's!!!

We ate here on a saturday night and were very happy with it. Was nice to have a appropriate priced red wine with the chicken, really made the meal. This is the second time I have eaten at a Nando's, it is a must-do when we are in the DC area

Sloppy sloppy on filling a carry out order for 3 people - missing entree even after being asked if the order was complete. The food is ok but if it never makes it to the customer it doesn't matter what the kitchen produces. Disappointing.

Excellent food, specialty is the marinated, grilled chicken. Can order with level of spice (medium is starting to get serious) and specific parts (whole, half, 2 boneless thigh, thigh skewer, breast, leg, or livers. Great sangria -tried the "flavor of the day"- liked the peach mango a lot, fruit was actually MARINATED in sangria, not just thrown in for appearance.... More

Nando's faintly Portuguese chicken options are at once tasty and repetitive. You can get the same basic ingredients in numerous forms, and they all come with the same selection of spices. But the food is fresh, and the spices have plenty of heat (if you want it). We came for dinner after a movie at Bethesda Row on July 4th,... More

Love the atmosphere and decor. Great service - very nice friendly staff. The coleslaw was great. Very fresh with a little kick to it.

Food was perfect. I got a fruit salsa with the chicken (cant remember exactly what it was) and the peas for a side dish. Awesome choices. Good prices

Since I work nearby I've been to Nando's Peri Peri numerous times and always get great food. They have big tables so if you come with the work gang it works out pretty well. I like how they offer the different sauces so you can select from mild to hot. Good food.

Chicken sauce is tangy spicy. It seems that they half fried the chicken and grilled it. Pereneise sauce is good. But that's all...taste good but boring menu. Like the soda dispenser, nice decorations
