Perched on the city’s highest point in northwest DC, Nando’s Tenleytown restaurant is helping the people of Washington  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 on Wisconsin Avenue in Tenleytown. Convenient to the Metro, American University, Washington National Cathedral, and Embassy Row, Nando’s  Tenleytown restaurant is a local favorite for happy hour, convenient carryout, and upscale, casual dining. Share and enjoy our delicious PERi-PERi dishes in a creative and contemporary space.
