Nando's, Toronto, ON

Gord and I had supper this evening at Nando's (on Queen Street W, just west of Tecumseth Street).  They just opened a couple weeks ago.

Nando’s first opened in South Africa in 1987 and soon became famous for its Portuguese style flame-grilled chicken with a PERi-PERi (African Birds Eye Chilli) kick.

We sat on the patio.

You choose what you want from the menu and then go inside to order and pay for it.  It's kind of an odd business model because if you want a couple drinks during the evening, you have to keep going in to order them and pay for them each time rather than having everything put on a tab and you pay for it at the end.  Plus if you have to get up and order for yourself every time, you may not be include to tip.  Don't forget to pick up your utensils, napkins, hot sauces, etc.

You let them know your table so they can bring it to you when it's ready (it took about 20 minutes).

We were table 100

We ordered a bottle of wine.

I ordered a 1/2 chicken with lemon herb sauce.  The chicken was good.  It was tender and flavourable (it tasted like BBQ) with a bit of heat.  I couldn't taste the lemon herb sauce, though.  I'd get it again.

Gord ordered plain wings with lemon herb sauce on the side and an order of cole slaw.  He said both were really good ... the chicken was tender and juicy and the cole slaw was fresh, creamy and crunchy.  He'd get them again.  I'm glad he got extra lemon herb sauce (it had kick!) because I used it to dip my chicken in.

The wings were big!

The napkins came in handy!

Alice was one of the servers.  She was friendly and kept checking on us to make sure everything was okay.

We'll be back!

Looks good. Very European style to order and pay as you go.
