Nandos does GF very well at all branches. Staff check all allergens when ordered and food is prepared separately. Separate frier for chips. Best way to work out what to order is to use website on mobile, then you can filter by allergen. Their allergen menu is pretty confusing!

I have always had good experiences with Nando's, wherever I go. I have eaten in Nando's in Chelmsford, Lincoln, Nottingham and London. It's a reliable restaurant to have a good and safe meal. Meals come with a gluten free flag if you specify that it is an "allergy order" when ordering. They then ask what allergy and if you're coeliac. I have not ever felt ill after going and I usually have quite severe reactions to gluten, so I trust Nando's a lot now.

Manager will always assist and confirm order is suitable prior to payment. They will oversee the kitchen and ensure surfaces are cleaned and deemed safe. They will deliver the food to the table and it will be clearly flagged it is an “allergy order”

Quick, fresh, tasty food. Most available as gluten free.

Staff was very knowledgeable and happy to explain how their kitchen does the best they can to minimize potential contamination. They have a separate fryer, separate section of grill and separate tongs... very attentive to detail (in a verifiable way!!!!) and happy to explain/answer questions. I’m quite Leary of fast food type restaurants but this Nandos has their act together and I was very happy and comfortable eating here.

Chicken and chips are gluten and dairy free. Staff write “allergy order” on your order and also put a sticker on your plate so you know that they have been careful. There is a lactose free chocolate ice cream which tastes very nice too.

Love Nando’s!! So handy as a coeliac. They take it very seriously there and have a big black book with dedicated foods in it. I always have a whole chicken with mango and lime, peri salted chips and spicy rice. The frozen yoghurt is also gluten free but the other desserts are not.

Although they dont currently have a gluten free menu, options are available online and the staff are knowledgeable. The majority of their chicken is gluten free as are the sauces they use and most of the sides. The staff are happy to help, on occasion they have cleaned the grill prior to cooking an allergy meal, this may mean it takes longer but the food tastes amazing. Good as a quick gf fast food and you can takeaway if you fancy.

Although they do not have a gf menu, most of the food is gluten free. Including all the chicken and sauces. When you mention you are gluten intolerant they go out of their way to look after you. Sometimes full on cleaning the grill before they do your food. This may mean a little wait but the food is just gorgeous when you get it. I've never had any issues here and have been eating here for 4 years.

Nandos have a clear process for ordering food when you have allergies (or coeliacs), which was very reassuring. There was lots on the menu which I could have, not just meat options either. They labelled my food as 'Allergy' and served it separately. The food was really tasty too!

No gluten free menu, however you have to look through the allergy book. Staff are very aware of GF and with GF your food normally gets prepared before everyone else’s as they prepare it in another area.

Very knowledgeable on cross contamination. Manger has to take order for you. They handle the entire order. With CONFIDENCE, you will NOT be Glutened.

French fires are safe... which is always a plus :)

When I asked for the allergen menu, I was given an enormous book, and the manager came over and explained my options. The only thing they put in the deep fryer is their chips, which are GF! The Peri-salted chips are also GF now! Chicken and all sauces are GF. They have an allergy protocol in the kitchen as well. AWESOME!!!!

Really good gluten free chicken. Lots of GF choices. Nandos is known for good training and limiting cross contamination and on our one visit, my celiac daughter did not get sick. She also loved the chicken.

Did a very nice job hosting a gluten free diet. Would use an option in London as it is a chain restaurant in London.

I've always thought Nando's was a great place for celiacs, that was till I ate here! I have visited this Nando's twice and both times they have made me sick! They do not take celiac disease seriously and didn't seem to know what it was. The first time I visited my self and a friend ordered our food separately. However they bought our food together on one place. (I thought this so odd even if I wasn't a celiac.) my friends garlic bread was on the plate. I took it back to the till were the staff told me to remove it and didn't understand cross contamination at all. He called a manager who took the plate away. I do think I was given the same chicken that touch the garlic bread as I was sick after.The second time I went I was made sick again and as I was leaving I watch the grill cook that was mixing the chicken and bread on the grill and using the same utensils. Really a very bad Nando's.
