  • Ashley MEverything here is so delicious! The chicken, the fries, the sauce. I ate Nando's heaps when I was in New Zealand and was thrilled to find it in the states.

    55555 by Ashley M

    55555 by Karen D


  • Hazel JUna rosticerĆ­a con un toque diferente, salsas picantes de acuerdo al paladar, lindo ambiente. Si no te gusta el pollo prueba en otro lugar šŸ˜œ

    55555 by Hazel J


  • Sophia Jnothing mind-blowing about this place, but chicken and other foods are very solid (and a bit spicy). Lemon and herb chicken was all right.

    55555 by Sophia J


  • Maggie M.The original! I love it!!!

    55555 by Maggie M.


  • Maggie M.Peri-peri! Everything is good but the grilled manchengo cheese on that entree salad takes the cake.

    55555 by Maggie M.


  • Tom C.Love Nando's but previously only has it in the U.K. This branch has more options but it tastes just as good. Favourite of mine is Chicken Pita, double cheese, hot with peri peri fries and a Nata

    55555 by Tom C.


  • Michael JTheir classic half chicken and chips is awesome. Reminds me of my years in the U.K..

    55555 by Michael J


  • Danyel S.wings. wings wings wings. and all of the sauces even the salad dressings.

    33333 by Danyel S.


  • Tom M.The flame roasted grilled chicken is good but the peri peri sauce you put on it is what makes Nando's stand apart, hence the mention in its name. Unique sides like mashed peas with chili flakes.

    55555 by Tom M.


  • Chris GLOVE Nando's! Just found out this was the first one built in the States too!

    33333 by Chris G

  • GoLacey GoCutest little place!

    55555 by GoLacey Go


  • Jaime W.The fries with the peri peri salt are worth it!!! Warning though, the cranberry/corn/squash side is SPICY!!!

    55555 by Jaime W.


  • Jeremy T.Decent pricing and some healthy options.

    55555 by Jeremy T.


  • Alaa S.Can't decide between the lemon and herb or the mango and lime? Get both and share! Chicken is always tender and juicy. Well-priced, and has more selection than the west coast. I miss this place!

    55555 by Alaa S.


  • Chris F.Get the fantastic half roast chicken. Chocolate spoon cake is decadent. Nice selection of wines at nice prices.

    55555 by Chris F.

  • Achmed GNandos which is South African owned: - the sauce is hotter. I think they presume Americans can't take the heat.

    33333 by Achmed G


  • AndrĆ©s R.First time. Food was great. Don't fall for the Portuguese rolls, it's just bread, besides that, everything was just delicious.

    55555 by AndrƩs R.

  • Lisa T.Try the Mango and Lime Peri Peri sauce

    55555 by Lisa T.


  • AngelaThe garlic peri sauce is the shiz! The sangria is yummy but it's only because it's mostly Sprite... If planning on getting the garlic bread side, get the app instead. For a $1 more, you get 6 pieces

    55555 by Angela


  • Valentyn T.Even the milder sauces are quite spicy. JFYI.

    55555 by Valentyn T.


  • Ymelda Y.The sangria is amazing! Try it!

    55555 by Mariana B.


  • Phuong V.Liver is not good while everything else is very good. Much better than KFC in term of quality. KFC is about fried chicken though.

    33333 by Phuong V.

    33333 by DeAndre J.

    55555 by Lawrence M.

  • James H.I object to this being my "first Portuguese restaurant"... the food may be Portuguese in origin, but Nando's is South African all the way.

    33333 by James H.


  • Cale J.This Nando's location is hands down the best in the area - the staff are super sweet

    55555 by Cale J.


  • Candice B.Don't be afraid to go spicy. The salad topped with chicken was near perfection. Skip the frozen yogurt. It's too sweet.

    55555 by Candice B.


  • Kimberly H.ive never had corn on the cob this darn delicious EVER! & their red velvet cupcake is DELICIOUS!

    55555 by Kimberly H.


  • Amy L.Half chicken hot with rice and corn. The hot sauce definitely has a kick, but it's not unbearable or scorching. I could have ordered a 1/4 chicken and had more than enough with 2 sides.

    55555 by Amy L.


  • Ajay K.Peri-Peri chicken liver is a must to have when here! Anything with Peri-Peri in it is amazing!

    55555 by Ajay K.

    55555 by Nate L.

    55555 by Brittany R


  • Ouchy D.If your not sure what to get, you can't go wrong with the Chicken Wrap, the rice is great, and the hot sauce is massively tasty! Prices rock the face too for D.C.

    55555 by Ouchy D.


  • El SeƱor MartĆ­nezPay for you food before you eat, apparently that's how things are done outside of the US.

    33333 by El SeƱor Martƭnez

    55555 by Brad M.


  • Roscoe v.Order the chicken livers!!

    33333 by Roscoe v.

    55555 by Khai R


  • Jeremy ITry the chicken!!

    55555 by Jeremy I


  • Melissa L.Allthe tips about how the sauce isn't hot are a bit misleading. I love hot food and I got the hot 1/2 chicken and it was plenty spicy. Really yummy. Skip the squash. Looks like smthg I'd make drunk.

    55555 by Melissa L.


  • Virly Kget the half price of sangria pitcher...taste a bit sweeter compare the other places. but ask with regular soda instead

    55555 by Virly K


  • Heidi H.They're not shy with their wine pours. Love it!

    55555 by Heidi H.


  • Kenneth W.My personal favorite...give it a try: 1/2 Chicken (lemon & herb) with a side of chips (aka fries) and garlic bread (aka amazing)

    55555 by Kenneth W.


  • Peter T.You probably wouldn't think of coming here for dessert, but you should definitely try the chocolate spoon cake--its amazing!

    55555 by Peter T.


  • Mary R.I like my food rather plain, so I was wary of their "plain" chicken. But it was fabulous, and the red skinned mashed potatoes were perfection.

    55555 by Mary R.


  • John P.The food here is excellent. Try the white sauce yummy. And visit the state of the art bathrooms.

    55555 by John P.


  • tarsila y.Roasted Portobello Mushroom with Halloumi Cheese and Chilli Jam. Ask for no spice (too spicy for brazilian taste)

    55555 by tarsila y.


  • Lori B.Be patient. It's a bit of a clusterbleep, especially if their computers go down, but yummy.

    55555 by Lori B.


  • Don P.This place f'n rocks. Chicken is crazy delicious. All sauces are on maximum flavor baby!

    55555 by Don P.


  • Jay W.There is a changing table in the men's restroom. If you're a dad, you understand that this is a nice (and rare) addition.

    33333 by Jay W.


  • Travis H.Amazing food, but you have to use the Extra Extra Hot sauce!

    55555 by Travis H.


  • TenikaWhenever you're in Gallery Place, check them out. They have the best chicken ever!

    55555 by Tenika


  • Roland KGreat food at a cheap price. Chicken and sauces were really good.

    55555 by Roland K


  • David P.The medium barely registered. Go for the hot. The garlic peri-peri was good. An awesome place that's not too expensive.

    55555 by David P.


  • LBJI've had everything on this menu. Literally! Take a chance on the livers!! They are superb! Don't forget to get your card stamped too!

    55555 by LBJ


  • Kenya A.I like the food but the service can be iffy. Friend ordered dessert and it never arrived. Ended up getting refund after waiting forever.

    22222 by Kenya A.


  • Heather P.Livers aren't for everybody, but if you like them, get them here.

    55555 by Heather P.


  • StaceyLemon & Herb + Medium sauce on chicken = perfection.

    55555 by Stacey


  • Vena W.Half chicken lemon and herb sauce is great!

    55555 by Vena W.


  • Scott M.This place is awesome! Whichever meal you get, I highly suggest that you order the Fino Side of Butternut Squash & Grilled Corn with Cranberries and Onions!

    55555 by Scott M.


  • Jason KatzIf you're gonna order a chicken burger get it with pineapple-delicious.

    55555 by Jason Katz


  • Kerry Lynn B.I'm a big fan of Nando's Peri-Peri - takeaway, eat-in and I've even had meetings at 18th Street! I'm also a fan of Portuguese wines - overlooked and often underrated bargains!
