Walking around National Harbor, we came across Nandos. My cuz had told me that he loved there peri peri food. So let see what it is about. We ordered a few items. I had a wrap, and wifey had chicken. Both items were very tasty. Several options in peri peri sauce let you customize your food.

First time here with my kids. The chicken was very moist, however the peri peri is spicy!!!! There are several different levels to choose from so that helped. And chips here are fries, I thought I was getting chips lol We weren't sure how it worked. You are seated with a number that sits into the wooden stand. You then... More

Hard to find a reasonably priced restaurant near the casino - so opted for this "semi-table service" venue. After a long wait to order at the counter, food was delivered to the table hot and tasty.

Really great tasting and not ashamed of spice! Glad I ordered the medium as it was balanced with great flavor.

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

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
