About us

Firing up India

The Nando’s flame landed in India way back in 2010 and soon there were 3 Nando’s restaurants across the country. It didn’t take long for people to fall in love with the addictive taste of our flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken and now we have 8 restaurants open in Punjab, Delhi, Chennai and Bangalore. Nando's continues to spice up India with our flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken and Afro-Portugese inspired sides. Come try some!

The Nando’s way

Besides our legendary chicken, the one thing you’ll always find at Nando’s is a warm welcome that’ll make you feel right at home. And that’s not just because of our PERi-PERi!
Each one of our restaurants has its own special design, but they all have earthy textures and colours that remind us of our sunny Afro-Portuguese roots and many feature original South African art and unique design touches. Cool Afro-Luso beats and friendly service add to the vibe, and then there’s the piece-de- resistance – our flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken that’s served on beautiful crockery.
It makes for a sizzling experience and we can’t wait for you to join our table. Because if there’s one thing we love just as much as PERi-PERi, it’s big, happy gatherings!


A tasty discovery

“It tantalises the tastebuds and adds passion to a meal!”
Our brave Portuguese forefathers

PERi-PERi – or the African Bird’s Eye Chilli – didn’t just fall out of the sky. (Unless the seed fell from a bird’s mouth that is!) Our brave Portuguese forefathers were introduced to it when they reached Africa way back in the 15th Century.

A spice so nice, they named it twice, they added this fiery little number to a handful of herbs, spices, a squeeze of sun-ripened lemons and a dash of garlic to create the first ever PERi-PERi sauce. Imagine if they’d simply stayed at home?

Like most family recipes, we’re not about to give ours away, but we can tell you our PERi-PERi will put fire in your belly and ignite passion in your soul. Some even say it causes an oh-so-good endorphin release. Others are convinced it’s an aphrodisiac. But… we’ll leave that for you to find out. Enjoy!
