Nando's Is Opening 92 Restaurants This Week With 50 Percent Off Menu
| Last updated
Having reopened 10 stores as a trial earlier this month, Nando's has announced it will be opening its doors to customers in around a quarter of its restaurants from today (30 July).
The total number of restaurants open to eat-in is now 102 and bosses at the chain have said that Nando's will be taking part in the government's Eat Out To Help Out scheme.
This means that during August - on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays - all food will be half price, in line with other restaurants which are offering the same. The offer only applies for those who are eating in, and there will be a slightly reduced menu.
There will also be a £10 maximum per person on the offer and it can't be used with other discounts. Customers will still be able to use their Nando's card if the remainder of the bill is over £7.
This means that if you get half a chicken and two regular sides, rather than forking out £9.80, your meal would only come to less than a fiver. You could even go all out and get a whole chicken and it would still cost just £6.
Of course, as has become normal, we can expect things to be a bit different than pre-Covid, with social distancing measures being brought in to keep customers and staff safe. You can expect to get used to a new service style, which means virtual queuing, as well as ordering and paying at your table via your phone.
The virtual queue will work by scanning a QR code on your phone, with customers given a virtual slot in the queue. You will then get an alert by text or notification, which will tell you that your table is ready.
Restaurants will have reduced capacity and all food, drinks, cutlery, sauces and napkins will be taken straight to your table by a member of staff.
Tables will have a six-person maximum and guests will be greeted at the door by a member of staff. You will be given hand sanitiser first, then be taken to your table.
Once you're seated, you'll have a recyclable, disposable menu. You will then scan a QR code and place your order and pay by your phone.
