Can I book a table?

We at Nando’s love a good party as much as our customers do! Each of our restaurants has their own booking policy, so please contact them directly via our restaurant locator to plan your bash! 

What are your restaurant hours?

Most Nando’s restaurants are open to our South African fans from 10:00am to 21:00pm but some restaurants’ opening hours vary. The restaurant locator will give you the exact opening and closing times. 

How can I find my nearest Nando’s restaurant?

Easy! The address, phone number and operating hours are all on our restaurant locator guide.


Do Nando’s provide extra PERi-PERi sachets when purchasing a full chicken only and no chips?

Nando’s Restaurants adhere to strict standard operation protocols, which means that you will only receive extra sachets of PERi-PERi sauce if the order includes chips.

Do Nando’s sell its basting sauce?

Nando’s does not sell the basting sauce, however Nando’s PERi-PERi sauces can be located at all major retail stores.

Do Nando’s products or sauces contain gluten?
Nando’s does not add ingredients that contain gluten to any of our sauces. This includes sauces used for the preparation of our flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken and table sauces.
There is however gluten present in the following items on the menu: 
  • Nando’s Burger roll 
  • Nando’s Portuguese roll 
  • Nando’s Wraps 
  • Nando’s Pita and
  • Desserts 
Do Nando’s still offer butterfly chicken?

Occasionally some of our customer's request that we butterfly their Nando's breast portion. Unfortunately, we are not able to meet this request, as it is difficult for us to ensure the appropriate standards of quality control when we cook chicken this way. At Nando's, we pride ourselves in serving the best chicken possible, and the butterflying procedure does not lend itself to allowing us to uphold this ideal.  

I have a food allergy, can I check your list of ingredients?

If you have a food allergy, please let the Patrão (manager) know, so that you can find out exactly what’s in your food. 

Do you have a kids menu?

We love children and have a special ‘no heat’ Nandino’s menu just for the under-12’s.   

How is your chicken cooked?

Our chickens are marinated for 24 hours and then flame-grilled in front of you while being basted in your choice of flavour.

Does Nando’s serve Halaal Chicken?

All our chickens are from Halaal suppliers. They don’t come into contact with any non-Halaal products on the grill and our bastings are also Halaal. To see which of restaurants have Halaal accreditation, check out our Nando’s restaurant locator.

Can I see your nutritional information?

Nutritional info can be requested by e-mailing customercare@nandos.com

Do you use pasteurised egg in any of your products?

Yip, we do! It’s in our mayonnaise which gets used in our burgers, wraps, pitas, coleslaw, creamy and perinaise dips.
