Legendary PERi-PERi

Our Legendary PERi-PERi story will fire your senses and feed your soul.

We mix a little legendary into all our PERi-PERi

Our special PERi-PERi sauce is made with the perfect combination of Nando’s African Bird’s Eye Chillies, lemon, garlic and onion for that authentic flavour.

Our legendary chilli doesn’t grow just anywhere

We’re proud of our Southern African heritage, which is why we grow our own unique type of African Bird’s Eye Chillies on farms across Mozambique, Malawi, Zimbabwe and South Africa. These special chillies grow with their tips pointing towards the sun. Each year, farmers handpick over 1 billion chillies to provide Nando’s with the very best produce for our PERi-PERi sauce.

Legendary flavour takes time

To ensure that legendary flavour you know and love, we only source local, RSPCA Approved chicken. These chickens come from farms with RSPCA Approved certification, meaning they have been farmed to a higher-welfare standard. Every chicken is marinated in our famous PERi-PERi sauce for 24 hours, giving it time to absorb all those rich, delicious flavours before it’s flame-grilled to perfection.

Make your meal legendary

At Nando’s, we’re all for diversity. That’s why when you order at Nando’s you get to personalise your meal with a flavour on our PERi-ometer. From tasty BBQ all the way up to a hit of Extra Hot, there’s a taste for everyone at Nando’s. Our PERi-PERi sauces are also available in major supermarkets.

Nando's for good

Nando's has never been just about the chicken. It's about the people who grill the chicken. Which is why we're so keen on making life that bit better for our communities. Here's some of our favourite why-we-get-out-of-bed projects.
