If you love peri-peri chicken at great prices then you probably already love Nandos, but did you know you can now eat their delectable chicken in the comfort of your own home?
Correct – Nando’s have officially launched their own delivery service so you can nom your way through some delicious spicy chicken without the inconvenience of having to scrape yourself off the sofa and into some acceptable trousers.
Now I know what you’re thinking, haven’t Nando’s done delivery for a while now and the answer is yes, but this is the first time they’ve had their own delivery service so shut it clever clogs.
Nandos have been trialling the system for a couple of weeks now in a few choice locations and as someone who was lucky enough to live in the catchment area of Nando’s delivery during the trial, let me tell you, there’s nothing quite like eating peri-peri chicken in your pants.
Unfortunately, while I was lucky enough to enjoy some tasty, tasty chicken in the comfort of my own home not everyone has been as lucky with the service and they’ve taken to the Internet to vent their foul fury.
As you can see they’re clucking mad:
so fucking annoying that you don’t get points on your nandos card for delivery @NandosUK sort it out pls I’ve missed out on 2 chillis!!!!!!!

Delivery is charged at £2.50 per order, in line with services such as Deliveroo and UberEats.
An extra £2 charge will be added to orders under £15.
I think we can all agree though, Nando’s delivery is, in general, a great idea – even if the execution’s been a bit shaky during the rollout – but I’m sure they’ll have everything sorted soon enough?
What’s less cool is the removal of a few classics from the Nando’s menu.
According to The Sun, the chicken restaurant has subtly pulled a few choice items from the menu including the Veggie Burger, the Fino Coleslaw and the Fino Platter.
Nando’s tried to excuse the removals by pointing to the new additions to the menu including the ‘Sweet Potato and Butternut Burger’, which they describe as being ‘packed full of the good stuff like sweet potato, butternut, red pepper, onion and edamame beans’.
Come on Nandos, do all the veggies out there a favour and bring back the veggie burger – trust me – as a lapsed veggie, mushed up veg is a bit boring if I’m being honest, even when you do smother it in your delicious sauces.

He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
