Adding passion to every meal since opening their first restaurant in Africa in 1987, Nandos Restaurant has become famous for their Portuguese style, flame grilled PERi-PERi chicken.
Only a few years after opening in South Africa, Nando's proudly unlocked the doors to their first Canadian restaurant in Richmond B.C. News travelled quickly and the word got out, spreading like wildfire about the legendary PERi-PERi flavour, with restaurants opening in the lower mainland of B.C. and Ontario to where it stands today with 29 restaurants spanning 3 provinces.
What is this famous sauce, PERi-PERi, you ask?
It’s thanks to the Portuguese forefathers – brave explorers that they were – that Nandos Restaurant is around. That’s because, way back in the 15th century, they were introduced to the Bird’s Eye Chilli which originated in Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, The Philippines, and surrounding countries.
How it all began…
Now growing worldwide and under the warm sun in the rich soils of Africa,”this was a spice so nice, it had been named twice”! Called PERi-PERi, this sizzling little number put fire in the explorers’ bellies and ignited passion in their souls. They added it to a handful of herbs, spices, a squeeze of sun-ripened lemons and a dash of garlic. Together with their love of life, friends, fun and good food they created the first Gosto Delicioso (great taste) and addictive PERi-PERi sauce.

All of Nando’s chickens are marinated for 24 hours in their secret sauce until the flavour goes right through to the bone. They're then flame-grilled and basted in your choice of Nando’s PERi-PERi sauce. The result is sizzling excellence!
