Firing up Oman

The Nando's cockerel landed on the sunny shores of Oman in 2004, with first restaurant located in Al Qurum, Muscat, followed by a second store at Muscat City Centre in 2011. It didn’t take long for the word to get around or for the people of Oman to get addicted to spicing things up with a fix of flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken. Thanks to their passion for PERi-PERi, Nando's Oman now has 3 restaurants in Oman, with the recent opening at the Oman Avenues Mall.  Nando's continues to spice up Oman with our flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken and Afro-Portuguese inspired sides. Come try some!  

In the true Nando’s spirit of adventure and discovery, we plan to fire up many more destinations with PERi-PERi over the next few years, simply because we can’t get enough of welcoming guests to our Casas (restaurants). Many have become lifelong friends and we’re honoured to be part of the fabric of their communities. 

Be it through our Afro-Portuguese inspired food or our hospitality – we love giving our customers an experience they want more of and we can’t wait to welcome you!

The Nando’s way

Besides our legendary chicken, the one thing you’ll always find at Nando’s is a warm welcome that’ll make you feel right at home. And that’s not just because of our PERi-PERi!
Each one of our restaurants has its own special design, but they all have earthy textures and colours that remind us of our sunny Afro-Portuguese roots and many feature original South African art and unique design touches. Cool Afro-Luso beats and friendly service add to the vibe, and then there’s the piece-de- resistance – our flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken that’s served on beautiful crockery.
It makes for a sizzling experience and we can’t wait for you to join our table. Because if there’s one thing we love just as much as PERi-PERi, it’s big, happy gatherings!


A tasty discovery

“It tantalises the tastebuds and adds passion to a meal!”
Our brave Portuguese forefathers

PERi-PERi – or the African Bird’s Eye Chilli – didn’t just fall out of the sky. (Unless the seed fell from a bird’s mouth that is!) Our brave Portuguese forefathers were introduced to it when they reached Africa way back in the 15th Century.

A spice so nice, they named it twice, they added this fiery little number to a handful of herbs, spices, a squeeze of sun-ripened lemons and a dash of garlic to create the first ever PERi-PERi sauce. Imagine if they’d simply stayed at home?

Like most family recipes, we’re not about to give ours away, but we can tell you our PERi-PERi will put fire in your belly and ignite passion in your soul. Some even say it causes an oh-so-good endorphin release. Others are convinced it’s an aphrodisiac. But… we’ll leave that for you to find out. Enjoy!
