This place was great! The staff were so friendly and let me flip through their allergens list to ensure I had nothing in my meal that could contain gluten. I had the rainbow peri bowl without the super seeds! All of their peri sauces (that I tried) are both gluten and dairy free. So yum!! Did not get sick afterward.

Staff had an allergen listing with gluten free items clearly labeled. Staff were very friendly and the menu had lots of food options. All chicken and bastings are g-free and lots of great side dishes. Fries are not gluten free but many other options to choose from.

While the restaurant isn’t dedicated gluten free, the staff are excellent about allergies! As soon as you tell the staff you have celiac/wheat allergy, they are running to the kitchen to ensure your order is prepared with new gloves, in a freshly cleaned area, and without any gluten ingredients. The servers automatically bring the allergen book and work directly with you to ensure you do not order anything that has hidden gluten. My husband and I both have celiac and have never had issues here :)

my husband is from Australia, and whenever we saw that a Nando‘s was coming to Houston. We both got so excited. The only question was do they have gluten-free options? Well, the answer is yes! They do! Do they have gluten-free indicators on their menu? No. They don’t…but don’t worry, I did the digging for you, and if you swipe right, you will find pictures of their allergen menu that they store behind the counter. (Not the best picture but proof that it exists!!) 😊

of course they can’t say that it is a completely gluten-free space because they do have flour, but they did say that the grill was completely separate from anything containing wheat so I do feel like most people will be very safe eating here. The sauces don’t contain gluten, but to my surprise, the sweet potatoes do. And be careful with the bowls because some of them are not gluten-free but the grilled chicken is and I will say it is absolutely delicious! . . . 📍 @nandosusa 🍗 📸: 1/2 chicken medium with fries & grilled halloumi (cheese!) • • • #glutenfree #glutenfreeintexas #findmeglutenfree @findmeglutenfree #glutenfreefood #houstonwithoutgluten #gfeats #houstonglutenfree #gfhouston

Full disclosure - I work for Nando’s in Australia! While I was touring personally in the USA I had to try a Nando’s here for comparison and I was pleasantly surprised! If I’m honest, I only eat Nando’s at home because I work for the business and have a good understanding of the cooking process and what’s safest to order to avoid cross contamination (note that’s any chicken on the bone because it’s cooked on the flame grill, not on the flat top with the burgers, and a side of spicy rice (prepared separately). Here though they had a full allergen book and could help me work out what was safest for me to eat (including whether the marinades needed to be left off or not). The team were really great and the food was delicious! I tried some sides we don’t have in Australia!

Service was horrendous. They ran out of my drink and never mentioned it. I ordered an olive tray that never arrived. They refunded so much, and incorrectly, that I had a credit balance!

Absolutely delicious chicken that is gluten-free. I have 12 peri-peri wings with mango and lime baste, and it was so good. You can view allergen information at the bottom of this page: https://www.nandosperiperi.com/menu/ (titled “download nutritional information (PDF)”)
