Nando’s has announced they will be back in business for seated diners from this Wednesday – July 8.
The PERI-PERI restaurant is a firm favourite with Brits.
Its cheap and cheerful chicken menu is beloved by everyone from teens to families, so many are pleased it’s been operating a takeaway service during the coronavirus lockdown.
Customers can currently order their favourite cheeky Nando’s straight from the website.
But, the wait for a meal out is almost over.
Since the government announced pubs and eateries could re-open on July 4, Nando’s fans have been waiting for the official opening date to be revealed.
A statement on the Nando’s site said: “There’s only a small number to begin with, but stay tuned, we’ll be adding more to the list from late July.
“To make sure it’s as safe as possible for you to enjoy PERi-PERi with us, we’ve made some changes to our style in line with government guidelines and social distancing.”
The first Nando’s branches to open include:
- Birmingham – Bullring
- Bluewater – Winter Garden
- Bromley – St Mark’s Square
- Leeds – J27
- Liverpool ONE
- Manchester – Trafford Centre
- Park Royal
- Westfield London.
Be prepared for a rather different experience, though.
Firstly, there will be no queues.
Visitors will receive a QR code to be scanned on arrival.
They will then be alerted as to when a table if ready.
The restaurants will be cashless.
Social distancing will be upheld in kitchens and dining areas.
Instead of the chain’s usual till queue method of ordering and paying, staff will wait on the tables.
Hand sanitiser will be dotted around and there will also be a limited menu.
You’ll still be able to order Nando’s for delivery if you don’t yet feel ready to venture out.
