If you like chicken... great step above fast food. Good value, good food. It's a UK chain that's made an appearance in a few states in the states. Check it out. If you like spicy, they've got you covered. I make sure to visit a Nando's every time I'm near one. Get the Periniase with the fries.

Went to a President's day Parade and had lunch at Nando's Peri Peri in Old Town Alexandria. Exotic, moist chicken as well as the best Portuguese egg tart! The reviews did not disappoint! Definitely a must try!

This is not your typical fried chicken place. Nando's is a DC based chain just now spreading out to other cities. The marinated chicken recipe originates in South Africa, heavy on peri-peri pepper, so novices should go light. Me, I love the heat. The chicken is grilled, not fried. I have had their chicken by the piece before but today... More

Portions are tiny. Chicken is excellent. But after $30 I still was starved. These were anorexic chickens.

This quaint restaurant has a nice vibe. Enjoyable Caribbean/African/Latin music. I enjoyed the Chicken and Baby Kale Salad. It has Baby kale, shredded chicken and crispy chickpeas mixed with greens, olives and cherry tomatoes, all tossed in a creamy yogurt dressing. I had a glass of Sangria to compliment the meal. If you never been to this restaurant, it's a... More

Great chicken and portions. I got a salad with chicken to go and I thought it seemed small. But I was stuffed after the last bite. Nice to see they have proper portion control. The sauces and chicken are amazing. Love how quick they rang me up and brought my takeout order. Will come here for sure the next time... More

Visited this unique restaurant for lunch. The hostess assigns a table and gives you a menu. Then you decide and walk to the counter to place your order. The food is then delivered to your table. I thought it was table service so I sat for a while before I noticed what others were doing. The chicken Peri peri was... More

It is good restaurant who like spiced food. We tried Peri Peri chicken which was fresh and soft. Fries or chips was also unique with Chilli powder seasoning which was good

I had heard about this place but never took the time to visit. Met a colleague hear for lunch and it is always fun to visit Old Town. Usually for lunch it is not that crowded around this part of town. The setting was cool and modern and you are welcomed from the moment you walk in and that was... More
