Opening its doors in June this year, Nando’s Tahlia Street in Riyadh, is the chain’s second outlet in the Saudi Arabian city.

Famed for its Afro-Portuguese style flame-grilled peri-peri chicken and eclectic service style, the casual dining restaurant chain aims to expand their footprint in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Each Nando’s outlet features with earthy textures and vibrant colours that reflect its heritage. The dynamic, hand-painted shopfront uses traditional African-influenced patterns combined with hand-carved clay designs, transporting the customer to the cultural roots of the brand upon entry.

Adding to the sensorial journey are over 50 unique pieces of Southern African art, adorning the walls of the new Tahlia Street Casa. Nando’s, believed to be the largest collector of Southern African contemporary art in the world, has over 11,000 pieces of art.

Foodmark COO Richard Barclay said in a statement: “Recognised internationally as the only way to eat chicken, Nando’s peri-peri has taken KSA by storm. The brand is excited to be further extending its hospitality, leading the way in Afro-Portuguese style flame-grilled peri-peri chicken. Nando’s is set to grow its loyal fan base with the introduction of Tahlia Street, Riyadh, and most importantly, continue to bring peri-peri to the people.”

Established in 1987 in Johannesburg, South Africa, Nando’s has since expanded worldwide to over 23 countries across five continents.
