The restaurant chain was established in 1987 in Johannesburg, South Africa, and has since grown to over 1,000 locations throughout 35 nations. The flame-grilled peri-peri chicken served at Nando's restaurants is their specialty.
The peri-peri chicken at Nando's is marinated in a hot peri-peri sauce made with African bird's eye chili, garlic, lemon juice, and herbs for 24 hours. The chicken is then expertly grilled over an open flame, producing a juicy and flavourful dish.
The menu at Nando's features other highly enjoyed mains as well as a selection of sides like fries, rice, coleslaw, and corn on the cob in addition to salads, sandwiches, and wraps. Their renowned spicy veggie burger is among the vegetarian and vegan options they provide.
Nando's is renowned for its colorful, eclectic interior design, which incorporates vibrant murals, works of art with an African influence, and distinctive design features. The restaurant chain is also very concerned with sustainability and social responsibility; as a result, they support neighbourhood projects and buy their ingredients from regional vendors.
