We were at National Harbor last month on 12th for a community trip and there was nothing much to do but you got to eat. After much discussion - whether to have Mexican, Thai or fusion, we ultimately went for Nando's - African and American fusion i guess. We have eaten here once at Towson so we knew what to... More

I tried the Nandocas Choice and it was great. Love the medium spice and all the sauces you can pick from. Must try.

We stopped by Nando's again this trip. We ordered their peruvian chicken as a carry out meal that included rice and french fries. The chicken is over-the-top good. You will be offered hot sauce to go with it, but we found even the mild hot sauce to be really hot. The chicken, though, is superb just as they serve it.... More

First time having South African Portuguese but the food was great! Ate here twice in 2 days! The garlic bread is addictive, watch out!

Nando's Peri Peri is right next to the Hyatt Place Inner Harbor. We have stayed there several times and never tried Nando's until this past weekend. The food is delicious! The chicken in particular...They have several levels of spice from plain marinade to HOT. Not really pricey considering the city. The chicken comes with one side, our total was around... More

Absolutely delicious, quick, cheap, wonderful. Order beforehand, pay beforehand, and then just sit down and relax. Sauces are delicious.

First time ever at Nando's. You are seated and given menus, then go to the counter to place your order. Service was fast and efficient, the food was very much to my liking (I ordered the medium 1/2 chicken, the cole slaw, and the roasted butternut squash and corn side), and the prices reasonable. The grandkids, who are picky eaters,... More

We visited Nando's after walking out of Granite City across the street. It was my first US Nando's but I regularly visit Nando's in the UK. It was up to the good standards that I expect from Nando's. The guy who took our order was very helpful and patient, and made good suggestions when we couldn't decide between some options.... More
