Nando’s -The “PERI” exciting launch of the Dubai Festival City Branch

Nando’s may be very famous for its Peri-Peri chicken, but it definitely has one of the best vegetarian burgers in town when grilled in its signature Peri-Peri sauce.

Tonight I was invited to the exciting launch of the 19th and newest branch of Nando’s in the UAE. Located at Dubai Festival City, it has an inviting ambiance full of artsy decor and is home to some stunning views especially during sunset.


How spectacular is that? The indoors is amazing too and I loved the south african touches to the decor.


It has an abundance of its famous sauces so you can definitely purchase one after a satisfied meal. I use it at home all the time when we make Burgers or in my Noodles or Mexican food. Let’s just say, we can’t do at home without the sauce.


We were given samplers to taste and everything was fantastic! from the hot PERi-PERi Hummus to a mean Bruschetta. toasted bread with coleslaw to vegetables grilled and skewered, everything was fabulous! Their PERi-PERi wedges and curly fries are a WIN and do not miss out on these as your sides. The veggie burgers are smothered in Chilli Jam and Tangy Yoghurt Sauce and are served on a toasted Portuguese roll. They are fabulous and taste even better with a slice of cheese. You can definitely choose your PERi-PERi levels and i tend to stick to the mild and dip it in additional sauces if I want to.

Nando’s may have come quite a way since their humble beginnings in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1987, but they’ve never forgotten their roots. The amazing works of art they have in all their restaurants are a beautiful and constant reminder of where they came from. To honor this, this particular branch of Nando’s has a HUGE piece of fabulous art showcasing vibrant colors but if you look closely you will see the face of a woman. It was truly mesmerizing and when it was unveiled we were all awestruck!


Below is the amazing artist Kilmany-Jo Liversage whose work has been featured in Nando’s stores in Chicago, London and now Dubai.


This branch of Nando’s will also have stunning views of the magical colored fountains in the evening and will definitely be one of the best spots to dine when it comes to outdoor dining.


Love Nando’s and highly recommend this particular branch for its stunning views outdoors and lovely ambiance indoors. The worst part is they don;t take table bookings so better get there early to catch a table outdoors.
