Located on the boardwalk of the Rio Washingtonian Center’s lakefront plaza, Nando’s Gaithersburg restaurant is helping the people of Montgomery County find their spicy place, one piece of flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken at a time. Always fresh, never frozen, our chicken is marinated in PERi-PERi for 24-hours, and flame-grilled to order in the heat level of your choice. And a little secret you may not know…we partner with small-scale farmers in Southern Africa to source our authentic PERi-PERi chilis.
Nando's originated in a small town in South Africa in 1987 and has grown to include locations all across the globe, including our home in Gaithersburg. Convenient to Shady Grove Medical Center and in the heart of Gaithersburg’s premiere shopping and dining destination, Nando’s Gainesville restaurant is an ideal spot for happy hour, dinner and a movie, and upscale, casual dining. Come see us to share and enjoy delicious PERi-PERi dishes in a creative and contemporary space.
