Get Ready For Peri-Peri Good Chicken And Unlimited FroYo At Indiranagar Nando’s

    Indira Nagar, Chennai


    Flame-grilled chicken, rustic ambience and that unmistakable Peri-Peri sauce — ladies and gentlemen, Nando’s is right here on Indiranagar’s 12th Main. Oh, and there’s unlimited Frozen Yoghurt too.

    Chow Down

    Signature Peri-Peri Chicken, Moroccan Butternut & Grilled Peppers Chicken Burger and Chicken Livers and Portuguese Roll

    Sip On

    Ice Tea and bottomless sodas, and beer or wine.

    Winning For…

    Of course, the Peri-Peri Chicken, but also that they’ve brought their international concept of bottomless frozen yoghurt and drinks concept here!

    Lowdown On The Ambience

    Following the trademark Nando’s set-up, this one also reflects the Afro-Portuguese heritage the brand stand for. So expect earthy textures, wooden furniture, walls splashed with quirky paintings and even some South American art {the chain originated there, you see}.  Oh, and music to match this décor. Bring on the happy vibes.

    Prodigal Chicken Returns

    Without looking at the menu even, the Peri-Peri chicken was ordered — extra hot, with herb rice and Peri-Peri fries. Then we looked at the menu.

    To start with, we ordered the Chicken Livers and Portuguese Roll and the Portuguese Nata or an egg tart. Dunked in the mild hot sauce, the liver really soaks up the flavours. Slightly disappointed with the Nata, we gave it up in favour of the mains  — Moroccan Butternut & Grilled Peppers Chicken Burger and Mushroom, Halloumi & Chilli Jam Burger. The former was a fillet of the grilled chicken with rocket, and bell peppers brought together with the Peri-Peri sauce. The second burger has us hunting for the halloumi {which we did find, but not as much as we’d hoped} and the bird’s eye chilli, wasn’t a patch on the in-house sauce.

    Flaming Good

    We have no complaints with the signature dish though. Grilled to perfection, the marinade had seeped into the chicken skin which in turn was grilled to a crisp. If you don’t like getting messy with chicken on the bone, opt for the Chicken Tenders with Herb Rice or the Espetada Carnival — skewered with feta, parsley and veggies. We must mention that it’s not as spicy as it used to be or is in other countries. We really had to load up on the extra hot sauce for that quintessential punch. Vegetarian? No problem. Try the Mushroom Paneer Wrap and Cataplana Algarve {Peri-Peri paneer, cataplana sauce, and chickpeas}.

    Limitless Indulgence

    We’d be lying if we didn’t say we’re super excited that they’ve brought their loyalty card programme {gets you free or discounted meals}. But even more so that frozen yoghurt and sodas are bottomless – buy one and keep refuelling until you collapse.
