“Tasty food, interesting experience ”
Review of Nando's Peri-Peri

Nando's is an international casual dining restaurant chain originating from South Africa. I have had the pleasure of eating in the USA and in S Africa. The quality and taste is consistent. The restaurant is decorated with with a Mozambican/Portuguese theme -- including a hand washing station (yes you can use it!).

Most of the food will be considered "spicy" to American children. So make sure you ask what's best if you have kids. Also the sauces are awesome and the chicken is served butterflied and tender. It's pretty fast.

Ordering is different than how we are used to ordering. You get a table aside and go there and then you go to the register to order. Once you are you sit down and they bring your food to you. The beginning experience can be a little bit confusing because most restaurants in America don't work this way. The servers there are more like table cleaners. If you expect them to serve you you would be mistaken. They seem to get annoyed if you ask for the simplest things.

Overall, this is a great experience for tasting something new. It's a place that offers a different type of routine and a different type of food that were used to. We have become regulars and we enjoy it frequently.

Had dinner last night with my husband, my daughter and 2 grandchildren. We had half chicken each with 2 sides and the kids had grilled cheese and fries. The chicken was great. I had the mango lime. It was great on its own. I didn't need to add any sauce. My husband had one without sauce and chose to add sauces they offered on the side. He declared they were great. The kids loved the bottomless frozen yoghurt. The price was a reasonable. The machu peas and coleslaw were really good. I'd eat there again.

It is located across from the movie theater. Not a big restaurant, but we take it home a lot anyways. You can order sandwiches, salads or just chicken. The peri peri sauce is the secret ingredient. There are several sauces to choose from. They have lots of sides too. We keep going back for more.

Nandos has wonderful chicken and side dishes. I always feel that ai can eat healthy in this restaurant. The atmosphere is very casual but the staff is very helpful. They also offer a military discount which is a nice touch.

This is a growing chain in the DC area with a unique new approach to chicken based on a combination of cultures not normally available in chains...Or for that matter, also nothing like any mom and pops nearby. Highly recommended to come to this well run location and give it a try. Close to the theaters so it's perfect for dinner/lunch and a movie.
