You need not settle for alternatives anymore as now you’ve got your very own Nando’s! We hope you will enjoy our new style restaurant and PERi-licious meals at Nando’s.”
In a collaboration with Design Collective, Yellow Wood and award winning lighting designer Samantha Foeden, the Contemporary African inspired geometric patterns in bright yellow and bold turquoise are subtly stained onto the light oak wall cladding which creates a warm and inviting space. Thus, complementing the artwork and other design elements. These design elements include solid timber floors, an intricately designed timber ceiling, custom designed pendants for the first time in India and carefully crafted tables and chairs which add a unique aesthetic to the Nando’s design language. The design is completed with the use of various lighting elements and methods to create a play of light, shadows as well as ‘high-lighting’ feature design elements.
With this new casa at Punjabi Bagh, Nando’s has introduced the new style of service, just like their restaurants globally known as the Hosted Cockerel Service Model. The new service is all set to make you feel at home. Nando’s believes in the concept of ‘Minha Casa e Sua Casa’ which means ‘Our Home is Your Home’. It’s all about sparking new connections and more power to the customer to be able do his own thing. This starts from placing your order at the counter, to mixing your own bottomless soft drinks and picking handful of your favorite sauces from the condiment station.
