Devoted to people with an appetite for life, people who love to laugh and live to eat. At Nando’s we believe in our flame-grilled PERi-PERi Chicken, we believe it’s the best in the world. Taste the unique flavour and fire of our PERi-PERi chicken and we are sure you will agree.
The name Nando’s comes from Fernando, the name of one of our founders – Fernando Duarte. He and Robert Brozin bought a restaurant called Chickenland in Rosettenville, near Johannesburg in 1987. This became the first Nando’s restaurant, which incorporated influences by former Portuguese colonists from Mozambique, many of whom had settled on the south-eastern side of Johannesburg. As a result, Nando’s is sometimes still referred to as Nando’s Chickenland. Farmed in the UK Nando’s chicken is Red Tractor assured, having met high standards of food safety, animal welfare and environmental protection. This means our chicken is not only tasty, but also happy and healthy. Our chicken is delivered FRESH (never frozen) to our restaurants.
To give you the great PERi-PERi-taste all our chickens are marinated for 24 hours in our natural PERi-PERi sauce. Our PERi-PERi marinade contains no preservatives, no colourants and no artificial flavours, so is totally natural and totally healthy. Flame grilled, never fried, every chicken is basted to your taste and grilled to order
