Nando’s is a global flame-grilling, PERi-PERi chicken restaurant group. The first Nando’s restaurant was opened in 1987 in Johannesburg, South Africa, by two friends, Robert Brozin and Fernando Duarte. These original owners continue to play an active role in the management and care of Nando’s. Answering to their vision to take the world’s best tasting chicken to the world, Nando’s restaurants can now be found on five continents. The Nando’s symbol, the Barcelos Cockerel, remains the most visible expression of Nando’s passionate pursuits.
Nando’s authentic PERi-PERi has captivated its customers. All Nando’s PERi-PERi recipes, from the extensive range of restaurant chicken-bastings to sauces, spices and others, remain a closely guarded secret. However, it’s Nando’s chicken which has made Nando’s famous. Flame-grilled and never deep fried; customers choose their chicken from a menu that includes full, half or quarter butterfly-cut chicken, burgers, pitas and salads. They then choose their PERi-PERi flavour basting from mild, hot, extra hot or lemon and herb. Other flavours, including Mozam Paprika and one for children, are also available.
