Gluten free is not indicated on the in store menu but you can go on the website and find the nutritional guide .pdf which is very detailed and lists all allergens in each menu item. The cashier also cross checked that guide with my order to make sure all was ok. Fries are the only thing that go into the fryer, so that was safe and a treat! Sauces all appear to be gluten free as well. Very tasty!

Good food, with gluten-free options. Service was a bit lax.

YES YES YES JUST GO!!! Nando's gets it.

All the sauces are GF and the grilled chicken is just amazing. My fave is to order it plain and layer the garlic sauce. Nice dedicated french fries also! OH MY my mouth is watering just thinking about this. We ate here twice!!!

Get some wine and eat some chicken!

The food was so good! They have an allergen/nutritional menu available up at the counter or you can look at it on your phone by scanning a QR code on the back of the main menu. I’m not celiac so I’m not sure about cross contamination safety but I was able to order chicken with fries and Portuguese rice straight off of the menu with no substitutions, so that was awesome. Very tasty, most of it is dairy free as well, they have non spicy options for those who can’t tolerate the heat, and vegetarian main course options as well (although I believe they are not gluten free). Would recommend!

When I arrived at the restaurant I was given a menu with allergens listed- “wheat” was listed, although “gluten” was not. When I asked about sauces and whether they had vinegar, the employee rolled their eyes and said that all chicken is pre-marinated in a vinegar-based sauce. When I asked if they knew if the vinegar contained malt, the employee rolled their eyes again, laughed, and said they didn’t know. They did provide the fact that their fryers are cross-contaminated. Based on this experience, I did not feel comfortable with eating here with Celiac and left to eat elsewhere.

Most things on the menu are gluten free! Everything we had at our table was delicious and we loved that we could mix and match the hot sauces to our liking.

I ate at Nando's in Doha, Qatar twice last month and was very excited to see a location here in Springfield, VA. The restaurant has an allergen guide that helped me pick a gluten free dinner. I felt great afterwards!

Tons of GF options. Unfortunately I don’t believe that they carry gluten-free bread, pita, or croutons, so avoid any menu items with those.
