What is Nando’s nino?

Nando’s nino is a bit different. We launched the first Nando’s Nino in Twickenham in January 2018 and it’s designed for when you’re in a rush, on the go, want a quick bite, a takeaway, delivery or to meet up with your mates. We’ve concentrated everything into a much smaller space, streamlined our menu, added some extra specials and changed some things you’ll experience.

Is the menu different?

Yes, the menu for Nando’s nino is different to our main restaurant menu, it has been designed with speed, delivery and takeaway in mind.

Where can I see the different menu?

The menu can be viewed here, in the Nando’s nino Twickenham restaurant and on our app.
