Nando's is a fast casual dining experience but is not fast food. Our food is made to order with the freshest of ingredients and is served on our hand crafted ceramic plates and cutlery. Our world famous flame-grilled chicken is fresh (never frozen) and is marinated for 24 hours until the flavour goes right through to the bone. It is then basted in one of our PERi-PERi flavours.

Inside our restaurants, there are many unique ways we reflect our Afro-Portuguese heritage and in some cases, original South African art adorns the walls. It is believed that Nando's globally has the world's largest contemporary South African art collection. Canada is proud to be a part of that, it reminds us of our roots.
