Staff was knowledgeable and friendly. The chicken with peri-peri sauce is gf (all spice levels). I got a 1/4 chicken with fries and mixed green salad and it was so much food! Fries are gf by default because they don’t fry anything else in a fryer. Highly recommended!

I ate at this location while on travel. I have eaten at other Nandos locations have had great success.

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!

We have eaten here several times. Many GF choices including wings and fries. Ask for an allergen menu to check the ingredients.

Girlfriend who has Celiac's mentioned it to the person taking the order, and they made sure to walk back into the kitchen and have everyone change gloves and were aware of it. Dedicated fryer, and everything except the sandwiches, coleslaw, and garlic bread were gluten free. Good food too (she had the chicken bowl)

Our first time to this chain was a positive experience! The lack of a GF menu kept us away for a long time, but the high celiac ratings here were encouraging. No cross contamination reaction (whew), and the chicken was flavorful. We especially liked the mango-lime sauce. The peri peri bowl was a great way to get some fresh veggies too.

Most of the menu can be made gluten free, however this particular location was not understanding of cross contamination and I got very sick while I was eating there. I explained profusely about cross contamination and the cashier indicated my food would be made in a clean area, but you can see them prep the food and they did nothing differently with mine. I will not be back to this Nando’s, and honestly don’t know if I ever want to try another.

Easy to find GF and dairy free options here. Chicken and rice were great. Pineapple are canned and coleslaw lacks flavor.

No rating as we opted to skip. We entered right at opening and the very helpful person pointed out the significant opportunity for cross contamination. He felt comfortable suggesting the half chicken, cole slaw and corn. My daughter felt unsafe so we opted out.

April 16, 2019. Fantastic GF place to eat. Only crutons, sandwich bread and pita chips have gluten. Easy to eat off the whole menu.

Staff not super knowledgeable (at least on day I went). They were willing to check though. Almost everything is GF and their website clearly marks what isn’t.

My family eats here all the time and they're great! The food is amazing, and almost anything can be made gluten free! And I know that most people don't come for the fries, but if anyone needs to know, the fries have their own fryer, so theyre gluten free!

Almost everything there is GF so even though the staff weren't super knowledgable, cross contamination seems unlikely because there just isn't much of it in the kitchen. I got medium spicy chicken and two veggie sides (seasonal brussels sprouts and peas). Tasty and no symptoms. Was a little crowded and noisy at lunch time.

This place is fantastic! So much is GF! Wings, fries, all the sauces! All the chicken is GF and no cross contamination. Only sources of gluten are obvious, like breads, wraps, etc.

When I went, the waitress said that basically anything with bread is obviously not gluten free and everything else is gf. I love their bowl and all the different sauces. Would definitely recommend.

Food is really good, you need to do your own research though. I'd give this place 1 star in terms of value, as their prices have gone up. The staff isn't the most knowledgeable. But they have an allergen menu by the counter. It is a little spicy but I like it, they have any sauces and they are mostly gluten free.

DO NOT GET THEIR CHICKEN. Corporate says they are gluten free but they, every night, soak the chicken in WHEAT vinegar therefore they cannot be gluten free and as a result i was in the hospital for a whole two weeks because of their disregard for our health. They do have a gluten free frier but if you get here ONLY get the fries. Only thing genuinely safe.

This is a good place to eat for gluten free because all the chicken is safe to eat. Don't order the fries though because the "peri-peri" salt has flower, it is also added to the brussel sprouts so don't get those. Mash and rise are safe, corn on the cob ect. Salads are iffy because they have interesting toppings like crunchy chick peas that are fried and coated with the same peri-peri salt. I would ask to see the allergen menu as a lot of the staff are highschool kids and don't know.

The staff was not very knowledgeable about what “gluten” even was, so it made me nervous even just ordering seemingly safe boneless chicken. Overall, it was gluten free and I had no symptoms afterwards, but the chicken was incredibly dry and overpriced for the amount of food received.

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!

Amazing chicken, a good portion of the meal is gluten free and allergen info is available. The fries are gf IF you have them put nothing on them. I have them go straight from fryer basket to container and haven’t had any problems doing that!

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.
