18th  Street

Located in DC’s hip and historic Dupont Circle neighborhood, Nando’s 18th Street restaurant is helping the people of Washington, DC find their spicy place, one piece of flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken at a time. Always fresh, never frozen, our chicken is marinated in PERi-PERi for 24-hours, and flame-grilled to order in the heat level of your choice. And a little secret you may not know…we partner with small-scale farmers in Southern Africa to source our authentic PERi-PERi chilis.

Nando's originated in a small town in South Africa in 1987 and has grown to include locations across the globe, including our home here in Dupont Circle, the second Nando’s to open in the United States. Convenient to Georgetown University, George Washington University, and the White House, Nando’s 18th Street restaurant is a local favorite for happy hour, group get-togethers, and upscale, casual dining. Share and enjoy our delicious PERi-PERi dishes in a creative and contemporary space.
