Nando’s bites

Want to get a stadium full of mates together for a Nando’s feast? Head to our biggest restaurant in Westfield Stratford in London.

Patrão. Portuguese for ‘Head of the House’. At Nando’s, each restaurant manager is the head of their casa, so we call them Patrãos.

The northern-most Nando’s restaurant is in Aberdeen, Scotland, where in the winter it’s between -1°C to 8°C. Nothing like PERi-PERi to warm up.

Don’t want to look too far for your Nando’s fix? Then make sure you’re in Melbourne – the city with the most Nando’s restaurants in the world.

Our very first restaurant opened in 1987 in Rosettenville, a suburb of Johannesburg in South Africa. It’s still there to this day.

The word PERi-PERi or Pili-Pili is Swahili for the African Bird’s Eye Chilli. At Nando’s we reckon it was named twice because it tastes so nice!

The heat of a chilli depends on the amount of capsaicin it contains. Capsaicin is the hot stuff that gives chillies their bite.

Nando’s is believed to have the world’s largest contemporary South African art collection. We love it as it reminds us of our roots.

In 2010 we were super proud to win Restaurateur of the Year in the UK. Thanks Nando’s fans, we couldn’t have done it without you!

Escudo. Portuguese for ‘shield’ and the Nando’s seal of quality. You’ll find the Escudo on our packaging and in our restaurants.

In the hot sauce category, Nando’s is rated Number 1 in the UK and South Africa. Thanks fans for giving us this tasty accolade!

Our biggest artwork was made in Cape Town and installed at Nando’s Kings Cross in London. At 3 x 18m, the award-winning mosaic weighs two tonnes.

Nando’s restaurants in the UK are home to around 3,000 pieces of South African art. That’s about 2 500 more than Tate Britain’s total display!

The biggest office block in the world is The Pentagon in Washington DC. Nando’s Arlington Row close by, keeps people that work there fired up!

Chillies are classified as fruit, but when harvested green, vegetables and harvested ripe, a spice! Huh?! At Nando’s we just call them addictive!

If you want to look up at the tallest building in the world while enjoying your PERi-PERi fix, visit Dubai where you can look skywards at The Burj.

Nando’s was the 1st South African high street retail brand to go global across 5 continents. (The Portuguese explorers’ influence is in our blood!)

The Nando’s restaurants closest to the equator are in Singapore. Who would have thought that Nando’s could make that part of the world hotter!

In 1912, an American scientist, Wilbur Scoville invented the Scoville scale to measure a chilli’s heat. At Nando’s we use the PERi-ometer.

In 2010, we were listed as an Ad Age International Top 30 Global Marketing Brand. To think that our cheeky ads started because of small budgets.

Minha casa è sua casa - Portuguese for ‘my home is your home’. We call our restaurants ‘casas’, because we like to make everyone feel at home.

In 2010, we were proud that Nando’s was named best big company to work for in the UK. We reckon it could be because we’re like one big family!

The first Nando’s restaurant to welcome in a new day is in Fiji. So if you’re desperate for a PERi-PERi fix, you know where to go.

Our marinades and basting sauces are made from 100% natural ingredients. So NO added preservatives, MSG, flavourants or colourants.

If you’re going on an expedition to the North or South Pole, your last stops to fuel up on PERi-PERi are Aberdeen in Scotland and Queenstown in New Zealand!

Nando’s has strong African and Portuguese influences. We call it Afro-Portuguese, and it’s expressed in our restaurant designs and our food.
