Rude staff. + You have to get your own drinks and silverware because there are no waiters. You order and pay for your food before you are seated at a table. Tables and silverware are not clean. They lost our food order. Food was not worth the wait or the money. Avoid

Nothing to complain about really. It wasn't spectacular. It was just an average piece of rotisserie chicken. It reminded me of a Boston market or a supermarket deli piece of chicken.

The food tasted good, not great. The restaurant seemed a little cold and the tables needed a cleaning. Friendly staff and moderate wait times. I would try it again.

This restaurant was really crowded on Saturday night, so there was a bit of a wait for our party of six. The atmosphere was just okay. The food, however, was very good. The peri peri seasoning made all the different types of chicken unique. I especially liked being able to choose the degree of heat you preferred for the peri... More

We each had the 1/4 chicken breast. These were certainly not Perdue sized chicken breast, but more the size of Quail. The flavor was good, but the serving sizes were small. Even my wife finished her portion. My wife enjoyed the Macarrons. My bright spot was the rich brownie.

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.
