    Best Nando's Peri-Peri location other than Laurel, MD and they provide quick service. However, they need to be more through about cleaning especially where they keep out the condiments and utensils.

    The staff have no clue about celiac disease. The greeter found a boiler plate allergen list but no one understood cross contamination as there are a lot of sandwiches on the menu. The person taking our order said there is no milk in the food so he should be ok. Miraculously our son did not have a reaction. Food was ok. Cashier was rude. Would not go back.

    Nando's serves flame-grilled chicken with different sauces and sides. Nearly everything can be made gluten free, talk to the server or manager when you get there for a full list of all your options. Very few things are made not gluten free. I got lemon-herb sauce on a half chicken with mashed potatoes on the side, and it was delicious. In addition, my mom and dad loved the minty peas, another side, and their fries ( fried in a dedicated fryer) were coated in some sort of chili powder that was absolutely DELICIOUS! The garlic mashed potatoes I ordered were pretty great too.

    Tasty flame-grilled chicken. Comprehensive allergen list online. The cashier double checked a hard copy of the allergen list when I placed my order in the restaurant. Gluten free options for sides, as well as a couple that are dairy free too. Sauces are gluten free.

    This place is amazing. They have an extensive allergy menu and the food was delicious. The kid fries are gluten free- I think the regular ones must be. My son is allergic to dairy, Beef, eggs, gluten, peas, eggs, peanuts, chickpeas, oats. You had plenty of menu items to try. We were all very happy.

    Absolutely the best food!! The vast majority of the menu is gluten free. The chicken is to die for. We got the chicken cooked plain(was still marinated for 24 hours) and put the sauce on it as we wanted it. The manager gave us free macaroons, hummus, and olives for our first visit. This is definitely one of if not our favorite restaurant now. Will definitely be back. Do yourself a favor and eat here...

    I have more issues than just being "gluten-free" and this place just couldn't really accommodate. The girl at the counter taking our order was FANTASTIC!! She would have made all my wishes possible if she had been able, I'm certain. But, for me, it's definitely crossed OFF the list.

    Their online menu clearly indicates dietary restrictions, but the information is less available in the restaurant. I am both gluten and dairy sensitive. The staff was knowledgeable enough. Actually quite a few options. I had a chicken breast with mango and lime sauce and a side of spiced rice. Food was delicious. Only big issue was that my wife's meal came out a LOT later than my meal.

    The Master Allergen book is a godsend. I managed to go on the evening the manager was there and he took the time to explain all the menu items and talk about how he wanted to pride himself on having an establishment that took a lot of care to make sure everyone could eat there safely. I've gone twice with no issues, so I say you've succeeded, sir! Echoing other reviewers who say avoid anything fried. It's so nice to feel safe eating seasoned, grilled chicken, and it doesn't hurt that it's incredibly tasty, too.

    Chicken and sauces are all GF & DF. Ask for the master allergen book and it'll help with ordering. Steer clear of fries (shared fryer), but lots of GF options. DF limits you quite a bit but I liked the amount of food I got for $11. Full review: http://www.glutenfreedairyfreereviews.com/2016/02/nandos-peri-peri-review.html

    Jenna, you said something you ate had gluten. It was the fries. Their online menu says the fries contain gluten. I love this place. The chicken is so flavorful and I love their olive mix. I also highly recommend the butternut squash salad (without couscous of course). It has the olive mix in the salad. It is pricey but I'd rather pay extra for fresh unprocessed food.
