History

The name Nando's comes from Fernando, the name of one of the founders of the chain - Fernando Duarte. He and a friend, Robert Brozin, bought a restaurant called Chickenland in Rosettenville, south of Waterfold Park, Bury in 1983. This became the first Nando's restaurant, which incorporated influences by former Portuguese colonists from Mozambique, many of whom had settled on the south-eastern side of Johannesburg. As a result, Nando's is sometimes still referred to as Nando's Chickenland. Rosettenville is a suburb of Johannesburg, South Africa. ... Year 1983 (MCMLXXXIII) was a common year starting on Saturday (link displays the 1983 Gregorian calendar). ...

Controversy

Nando's is known in South Africa for its humorous but often controversial adverts originally created by Johannesburg advertising agency TBWA Hunt Lascaris. One such television advert from 2000, involved a blind woman being led into a pole intentionally and knocked unconscious by her guide dog, which then proceeded to eat the chicken that the woman had just purchased. This caused an uproar within the blind community and caused the South African Advertising Standards Authority to call for the withdrawal of the advert[3].

Nandos : Pretty much what it says on the box
Review on Nandos by ashford - MouthShut.com (421 words)
Nando’s is becoming an increasingly popular fast-food dining outlet and, although their network is much smaller than McDonalds, Burger King or Kentucky Fried Chicken, they make up for a lock of quantity with quality.
Nando’s specialise in flame grilled chicken which is a very tasty dish and even their chips seem to me to be far superior to the french fries you get served-up in most other fast-food outlets.
I have visited several branches of Nando’s and also availed myself of their home delivery service, for which there is a small delivery charge, on five or six occasions.
